That is what the handicap system is for. On the holes ranked 1-9 on the stroke index (UK) or handicap holes (In US) you get one shot from him. That is if on one of those holes if you make a 4 and he makes a 3, you have a net score of 3 and tie. So essentially on the holes where you get one stroke you compare their gross score to your net score.
Normally you would play stableford against your personal par, so you would alter par according to your handicap. So if you had a 25 handicap you would add 1 to par on the 11 easiest holes and add 2 on the 7 hardest holes.So a double bogey on the #1 handicap hole would score like a par and score two points, a par on the #18 handicap hole would score like a birdie and score three points, while a triple bogey on the same hole would score like a double and score zero.See Rule 32.
This is where someones handicap is less than 0. When you have your gross score you actually add your handicap on to calculate your nett score.
A person with a zero handicap is also known as a scratch Golfer. The handicap system works as follows, you play a round, you shoot a gross score say 80, you have a handicap of 8, you take this away from your gross score and this gives you a nett score of 72. This is then set against the CSS to see if you get cut or go up. When you have a 0 handicap, you shoot 72, and you take away the handicap which gives a nett score of 72, which is again set against the CSS to see if you get cut or go up. A scratch Golfer is a very good Golfer who will usually shoot level par or better.
