New This Year: Entering Averages
This year, all bowlers will use their 2011-12 COMPOSITE average to determine handicap. This average will be entered and verified by the tournament director. The averages will appear on the tournament confirmation received by the team captain.
You can find YOUR composite average on Bowl.com, by using the “Find a Member” feature on the home page. A composite average is the “average of your averages”. determined by dividing the total pinfall from ALL leagues by the total number of games you bowled. The average includes all standard (non-Sport) USBC averages from any league – and includes data from leagues with less than 21 games. For those who only participated in one league, that will serve as your composite average. If you subbed in other leagues, but had less than 21 games in those leagues, those scores will be factored in and could raise or lower your average.
The composite average method is a fairer way of determining a bowler’s ability. Bowlers are no longer penalized for participating in a league where their average may be falsely inflated due to very easy lane conditions. Additionally, bowlers can no longer “hide” higher averages by quitting a league prior to establishing a 21 game average.
