In March of 2010, the Central Council of Handicappers for PHRF-LO looked further into our Time on Time numbers and decided that they would look more closely at the the current scratch boat (presently 177) in our time on time formula.
Upon review, it was found that our database actually had a median handicap of 165.
In light of this finding, they decided to move our scratch boat to match that of our median handicap.
As a result, our formula was adjusted slightly to accomodate that change. Below is the modified version of the original formula.
Q = .008
S = Scratch Boat = ASP 165
R = (8.36 x 106) ÷ ((ASP + 378.3)2)
RS = (8.36 x 106) ÷ ((165 + 378.3)2)
TOT = ((1 ÷ √RS + Q) ÷ ((1 ÷ √R) +Q))
or TOT = (566.431 ÷ (ASP + 401.431))
Your new A & B values are:
A = 566.431
B = 401.431
