ValidiTee is a cloud-based handicap evaluation software designed to help you weed out the tournament participants with “player manipulated handicaps.” This software is used in conjunction with your preferred handicap service depending upon location and applies a sophisticated 28-point algorithm. Calculating factors like home vs. away score postings, date posted, frequency of posts, and more.
Handicap services, tournament software systems, Head Golf Professionals, tournament directors and handicap committees can all benefit from this great new piece of technology. By using this additional assessment on the field each player is given a “score” and placed in one of four categories. These categories tell you how likely it is that the player needs to have an onsite tournament adjustment before play begins based on the statistical analysis.
It is no longer necessary to wait until play beings and have to face either a confrontation with the player, or other participants who are dissatisfied.
