It does indeed. It makes me think that there is something flawed in their algorithm as opposed to a few outlier rounds being played on a super easy course. 

 

https://www.arccosgolf.com/blogs/community/44154308-arccos-101-tour-analytics-explained

Here is how Arccos calculates handicap.

Everything is based off of Strokes Gained rather than the USGA method of handicap calculations. It explains why @Nunfa0 is an 11.9 handicap, but a 7.7 in Arccos.

Also, all of our current Arccos handicaps have been calculated by the rounds we have played with the system, where our actual handicaps have been calculated by all the rounds registered with our governing bodies. As the system gathers more and more data, the handicaps start averaging to more normal ranges.

So far, I'd agree you are a +4. Nunfa0 is great, I've given him plenty of crap in this thread already, and he hasn't strangled me (yet). 😜

I suspect if he did not live half way around the planet from you, he would have strangled you by now. 😉

@GB13 is here purely to create reactions akin to strangulation.

Props to him for being honest that he was only here to troll and so far, following through on that.

It's a competition. I have to be selfish.

I do appreciate the chiding that you are trying to give. Seems like something you've been told a time or two.
