Weekly Handicap Calculations
The weekly Average Ladder will be Handicap based, to allow a fairer breakdown of prizes to be awarded.
A player is required to play a minimum of 5 events over the course of the week (Monday - Sunday).
A player's top 5 scores will count towards their overall weekly average. 
Handicaps will be set going into a new week, based on the player's previous 10 scores.
How are handicaps calculated:
A player's previous 10 scores are averaged, and subtracted from 50%, to give a handicap. 
Example 1:
 
Last 10 Scores Average = 48.22%
 
Handicap: 50% - 48.22% = 1.78%
 
Weekly Ladder Example:
 
Player's Top 5 Scores Average = 53%
Player's Top 5 Handicap Average = 53%+1.78% = 54.78%
 
Example 2:
 
Last 10 Scores Average = 58.32%
 
Handicap: 50% - 58.32% = -8.32%
 
Weekly Ladder Example:
 
Player's Top 5 Scores Average = 61%
Player's Top 5 Handicap Average = 61%+(-8.32%) = 52.68%
