a question was asked today and no-one could think of the correct answer...

 

team 1 P1 10hc  P2 27hc

team 2 P1 12hc  P2  18hc

We all know the handicap/shot allowance is worked out on 3/4 the difference between the lowest of the four players and the rest of the group. so what would happen if the team 1 turned up without player 1, the handicap/shots were allocated and then player 1 turned up late, would he be able to join in and how would the allocation change?

Allocation is done based on the handicaps of the four players, and even though lowest guy is not there he is still included in caluctaions ... he just doesn't score on any of the holes.

hence when/if he turns up he can continue the match without any issues.

..... and specific decision is .....

 

30-3a/3 Determination of Handicap Allowances in Four-Ball Match If One Player Unable to Compete

Q.In a four-ball handicap match, the player with the lowest handicap is unable to play. Should the absent player be disregarded in determining the handicap allowances?

A.No. Under Rule 30-3a, a side may be represented by one partner for all or any part of the match. In determining handicap allowances, the handicaps of the three players should be reduced by the handicap of the absent player.

Under CONGU 3/4 will of course be 9/10 next year.
