Team Composition: Scramble teams consist of four (4) members who meet the eligibility requirements. The Team Computation Factor is determined after the handicap cut-off date for the Chapter Championship and is the sum of the computation factors listed in the table below. Look up each team member’s handicap index in the table below and add the computation factor in the right-hand column. The sum of which is the Team Computation Factor. The Team Computation Factor will be adjusted according to the revision date assigned to each stage of the Championship.
TEAM MEMBER COMPUTATION FACTOR

0.0 - 10.0 +2
10.1 - 17.0 +1
17.1 - 24.0 0

The Team Computation Factor must fall in the range of +2 and -5 at the time of registration into the Chapter Championship. Teams with a Team Factor that is greater than +2 will not be eligible to compete. Teams with a Team Factor less than -5 may compete but the Team Factor must remain a -5. Only one member of the team shall have a handicap index of 10.0 or less as of the handicap cut-off date for the Chapter Championship. If any individual computation factors change prior to a Semi-
Final or Finals event, the Team Computation Factor will adjust accordingly. The allowable range for Semi-Finals and Finals is +6 to -8.
The LPGA Women Who Play Tournament Operations Team (TOPS), working with the Chapter Handicap Chair, has the discretion to adjust a player’s Course Handicap based on knowledge of the player’s failure to post all acceptable scores, or otherwise not adhering to the spirit of the USGA Handicap System.
