The values in the table are the odds of shooting a net differential* EQUAL TO OR BETTER THAN the number in the left column.

*A net differential is the subtraction of a player's Handicap Index from the Handicap Differential for a particular tournament score. This becomes a negative value when the player scores much better than the player's Handicap Index.

Example: A player with a Handicap Index of 10.5 shoots a 74 from a set of tees with a USGA Course Rating of 71.2 and a Slope Rating of 126.

(74 - 71.2) = 2.8 x 113 / 126

 

= 2.5 Handicap Differential

2.5 - 10.5

 

= - 8.0 Net Differential

From the chart, the odds are 4,467 to 1 of this occurring.
