the negotiating of strokes prior to golf game is actually one of the highlights for me ....just luv it.

But how does one go about gettiing to this and being fair?

My consideration wil be:

1. Opponents distance fm tee box or driver

2. Opponents ...last score....??? but got bitten many times

3. Opponents ...official HCP??? worst than #2

4. 360 deg peer review.....hmm mite make sense


eitherway, if I do play...I play level with techno

can use adaptive stroking on per-hole basis as follow:
1) Winner of a hole gives the loser 1 stroke on the next hole
2) If the winner of a hole won becos of the given stroke, the next hole they play level
3) If the hole is tied, next hole will be played on the same terms

This works only for certain betting formats such as 18-hole matchplay and should work for 6-24 hcaps playing together.

I don't think driver distance is really an issue when it comes to giving strokes? Probably get the person to declare his last score, there's always this game to play called "honest joseph" as a side bet where the person who plays closest to his declared score wins
