SEASON 11 UPDATED AVERAGE RULES
SPORT SHOT AVERAGES
All sport shot averages stayed the same from the past season. The only change was the handicap % went from 90% of 220 to 90% of 210. So when you notice your handicap went down this is the reason why. By using the 90% of 210 we immediately lower the cut scores, which everyone likes, and hurt bowlers that “sandbag.” The change in handicap % will help most bowlers be more competitive.
HOUSE SHOT AVERAGES
The LIGBT no longer uses your sport shot average in house shot events. This made the cut scores extremely high and gave a group of bowlers too much of an advantage. All bowlers that have competed in an LIGBT house shot event or marathon now have a separate house shot average using the games they bowled MINUS 20 PINS.
Since new bowlers receive a 20 pin drop when entering their first event, all bowlers that bowled in house shot events will also get the 20 pin drop off their current house shot average. This will even the playing field for everyone and significantly lower cut scores.
