How are Quotas managed?

Points are allocated to bogeys or better scores:

Bogey: 1 point
Par: 2 points
Birdie: 4 points
Eagle: 8 points
Double eagle: 16 points
Double bogey or worse: 0 points

Quota (Expected points) is determined based on the players's handicap index, handicap adjustment percentage* and Exceptional Score adjustment* value (based on how players score in their previous round).

For players who would like to know the nuts and bolts, here is an example:

John has a handicap index of 11.9.
The course and tees he is playing has a course rating of 69.4, slope rating of 124 and the par is 71

His course handicap is calculated as below:
(Handicap Index*Slope/113) + (Course rating - Par)
= (11.9*124/113) + (69.4-71)
= 11.458

His Playing handicap is obtained by applying a handicap adjustment percentage of 75% which is 8.59. After rounding it is 9. John's quota for the round is 36 minus playing handicap: 36-9 = 27.

John's Final Quota for the round will be Quota(26) plus Exceptional Score adjustment value(1): 27+1 = 28.

*Note: Please refer to 'Adjustment' for detail on how these values are set for a player

Handicap adjustment percentatge* is determined by the player's Leaderboard position in his/her previous round.

Top 33%: 75%
Middle 33%: 85%
Bottom 33%: 95%

Exceptional score adjustment* is applied on top of calculated quota when player posts net points of 2 or above.
Exceptional Score adjustment = Net points minus 1

Ex: Player quota is 27, player posts 30 points, i.e; net points 3. From the following round, exceptional score adjustment for the player would be 2 (3 minus 1).

*Note: Default value of Handicap adjustment is 75% and Exceptional Score adjustment is 0.
The above adjustment process is revised periodically as new patterns in posted scores emerge.
