System 36 is a method of creating handicaps on the same day of an 18-hole tournament. Most frequently used in friendly tournaments where many of the players don't have official handicaps. The method used is as follows. At the end of play, a tally is made of each players round, counting up the number of holes scoring par or better, the number scoring a bogey and the number scoring double bogey or more. Then each par or better receives 2 points, each bogey receives 1 point and each double bogey or worse receives 0 points. The points are added up and subtracted from 36. This is the handicap for the player. For example, if you par every hole, you will receive a point total of 2 x 18 = 36. Subtracting from 36 gives you a handicap of 0. Another example. A golfer completed the following round:
Hole 1 - par
Hole 2 - bogey
Hole 3 - birdie
Hole 4 - triple bogey
Hole 5 - bogey
Hole 6 - bogey
Hole 7 - double bogey
Hole 8 - bogey
Hole 9 - par
Hole 10 - double bogey
Hole 11 - double bogey
Hole 12 - par
Hole 13 - bogey
Hole 14 - double bogey
Hole 15 - triple bogey
Hole 16 - par
Hole 17 - bogey
Hole 18 - par Total at end of round:
par or better = 6 x 2 = 12
bogeys = 6 x 1 = 6
double bogeys or worse = 6 x 0 = 0 Total points = 18 Handicap = 36 - 18 = 18 Gross = 91
Net = 73

How do you calculate modified system 36 point?

System 36 is normally based on handicap of the day. However when a tournament uses System 36 Modified, the organisers need each golfers DECLARED handicap. They then calculate using System 36 to determine each golfers HANDICAP OF THE DAY. If your HANDICAP OF THE DAY is HIGHER than your DECLARED HANDICAP, then they will recalculate based on your DECLARED HANDICAP. Example: With System 36, your HANDICAP OF THE DAY was determined to be 22 and Stableford points is say 35points. Your DECLARED HANDICAP is 20. So with System 36 Modified your Stableford points will now be 33 points. If HANDICAP OF THE DAY is 20 and Stableford points is 35 points. DECLARED HANDICAP is 22, then with System 36 Modified, the result at 35 Stableford points STAYS.
