EXACT CONGU to EXACT EGA Conversion (rev. 2016)
The playing handicap of a golfer holding a CONGU ® Exact Handicap has to be calculated as follows:
Exact EGA HCP = CONGU ® EXACT HCP *113/124
Note: 124 is the average of all CONGU slopes.
Gentleman Golfer - Episkopi CR (Yellow) = 68.8 PAR = 71 Slope = 116
Lady Golfer - Episkopi CR (Red) = 69.9 PAR= 71 Slope = 110
So converting an Exact CONGU of 15.0 to and Exact EGA is as follows:
Exact EGA HCP = 15.0 * 113/124 = 13.669 = 13.7
Note: The latest release of DataGolf ® does the conversion automatically.
Then the EGA playing handicap (PH) is calculated as usual using the following formula:
PH (yellow tees) = EGA H/C * Slope/113 + (CR-PAR) = 13.7*116/113 +(68.8-71) = 11.863 =>12 (Gentleman Golfer)
PH (red tees) = EGA H/C * Slope/113 + (CR-PAR) = 13.7*110/113 +(69.9-71) = 12.23 => 12 (Lady Golfer)
