What Exactly is a Handicap?

Handicap is a numerical measure of a gofer's potential playing ability based on the Tees played for a given course. It is used to calculate a net score from the number of strokes actually played during a competition, thus allowing players of different proficiency to play against each other on somewhat equal terms. The higher the handicap of a player, the poorer the player is relative to those with lower handicaps.
