Points will be allocated as 10pts for the winner, 9 for 2nd etc with Majors being double points (20 for the winner).
To level the playing field, I'll be giving each player their own handicap. This will the number of extra shots they get (i.e. removed from their final total) for each round. The initial handicap will be calculated by taking their best 2 scores in the recent tournament and taking the average (rounded down to the nearest shot) compared to the lowest score on the round (or Hugo's score). I haven't calculated exactly what this would be but taking Melly's scores, he'd probably get a 1 shot handicap per round. If you didn't play a round then that one won't be counted in the calculation. All handicaps will be reviewed before each Major.
Registered players for March 2013:
This is the number of shots that will be taken off your score per round.
Couple of rule amendments because of the handicap system.
1) In the event of a tie, the EG points will determine the order. This should favour the player with the lower handicap because they would probably have scored better.
2) Handicaps are only deducted on rounds that have been played, you don't get to take your handicap off your score if you didn't play.
3) Handicaps are 1.5x on 18 hole rounds (rounded down)
