How do you calculate the Handicap?

Begin by Subtracting your average from the Basis Score for example 220-170 = 50, then multiply that number by the Percentage Factor, 50 x 80% = 40. Your handicap is 40. So, the first game bowled in your league you bowl a 160, you would add your 40 point handicap to that score and 200 would be your adjusted score.  Check your league bylaws for the basis score and percentage factor.
