Bisques: In an attempt to encourage more break place by higher handicap players we’re continuing an experiment with the bisques involved being calculated and used differently:
- Calculate the number normally, using the total difference in handicaps.
- For the higher handicap player on each side calculate the difference between the handicap and 6 and divide by 2, rounding up.
- Add these together.
- Only the higher handicap player on each side may use these bisques. If both players have the same handicap then they can be shared.
E.g. Pair A: handicaps 3 and 18 v Pair B: 8 and 20.
Step 1 gives ((20+8) – (18+3))/2 = 3.5 and
Step 2 gives (18-6)/2 = 6 for Pair A and (20-6)/2 = 7 for Pair B
So the higher handicap player on Pair A gets 6 bisques and the higher player on Pair B gets 7+3.5=10.5 bisques.
