The Peoria System is a 1-day handicapping system for tournaments in which most of the golfers do not have real handicap indexes (company or charity outings, for example).
Chicago, IL, February 02, 2011 (PressReleasePoint) -- The Peoria System is a 1-day handicapping system for tournaments in which most of the golfers do not have real handicap indexes (company or charity outings, for example).
The Peoria System - while, like the similar Callaway System, is based in certain part on luck - allows a "handicap allowance" to be determined and then applied to each golfer's score.
The tournament committee secretly selects six holes. These are usually two par 3s, two par 4s and two par 5s, and often one of each type per nine (one par 3 on the front, the other on the back nine). Competitors do not know which holes have been selected.
Groups tee off and complete their rounds, playing stroke play and scoring in the normal fashion with one exception that is handled completely by tour•bot, double par is the maximum (i.e., 8 is the maximum score on a par-4). Just score the gross strokes by hole for each player and tour•bot will do everything else. Following completion of play, the six Peoria holes are announced by the tournament committee.
tour•bot totals each player's six Peoria holes and then multiples that total by 3. The total course par is subtracted from that total; then the resulting number is multiplied by 80 percent (rounded down). This resulting number becomes the player's Course Handicap for this tournament and is then applied against the gross strokes like any computed Course Handicap. The hole-by-hole application of the Peoria Course Handicap allows ties to be settled by comparing Peoria Net Strokes by hole, starting with the highest handicapped ranked hole.
tour•bot does all of these scoring calculations in an instant and is ready to Display, Email, AirPrint® or Bump® the results to / from the scorekeeper from your favorite Apple™ iDevice
tour•bot™ is the first full-featured golf tournament scoring app designed to be completely self-sufficient on your favorite iOS® Apple® device.
