Is Golphus free?

Yes, it is.

Course "such and such" isn't in the drop down...what gives?

I added a round in my dashboard, where is my handicap?

Calculating an "official" handicap requires a minimum of five rounds played. We do provide a running "projected handicap" however this is only a very rough estimate.

How many courses can I add?

As many as you play. Or don't play ( see next questions )

I could not exactly remember my score so I just put in what I felt I earned. Is this ok?

Really depends on the kind of cheater you are. Golf is a game honor played against yourself. If you can't be honest with you, who can you be?

What is a round differential?

This is the overall difference of what a professional would shoot and what you shot sprinkled with a little math. After five rounds, voila, your handicap.

Golphus says I am a 32 handicap. I am most definitely not a 32 handicap. Whats going on?
