WHS Terminology

Acceptable Score A score from an authorized format of play which meets all the provisions set out within the Rules of Handicapping (see Rule 2 ).
Adjusted Gross Score A player’s gross score, including any penalty strokes, adjusted for when:
  • The player exceeds their maximum hole score,
  • A hole is not played, or
  • A hole is started but the player does not hole out.
(See Rule 3.)

Cap The procedure that reduces or limits the amount by which a player’s Handicap Index can increase when measured against the player’s Low Handicap Index. There are two trigger points within the cap procedure:
  • Soft cap – the point after which there is a reduction in the rate of upward movement of a Handicap Index.
  • Hard cap – the point which sets the maximum limit for the upward movement of a Handicap Index.
