# Golf Scores: Average X Lowest Of Last X

Jan 15, 2006

I would like to set up a Excel spreadsheet for golf handicaps where it will use the 4 lowest scores of the last 5 entries. It must be able to work even if there are missed entries (someone didn't show up/blanks ignored). I would like it to work if there are only three scores used at the beginning of the season, but when there are 5 or more scores, use only the 4 lowest scores out of the last 5. I want it to average these scores. The scores would start in column d. The following is an example of scores with an underscore being a blank:

Golfer 1 45,50,42,43,46,37,45,45,46,44
Golfer 2 41,43,42,_,41,_,_,47,42,39
Golfer 3 44,43,45,54,_,45,43,40,42,_

## Spread Sheet To Get Golf Handicaps Using The Lowest 5 Of Last 6 Scores

Apr 1, 2008

I need a formula to figure the 5 lowest of last 6 sores, since everyone doesn't play every week there would be blank spaces and it needs to just give me the average if they have less than 6 scores!

I have manipulated the formulas until I am blue in the face and cannot get it to work;

## Average Of Lowest 3 Of 5 Scores 0

Feb 17, 2010

Needed for a golf league where the average of the best three of five games is needed - so, low score is better but score must be greater than zero. Each row is a player, column A is the players name, B-F 5 different games and the average will be in column G. I tried this formula but if someone didn't play at least 3 games SMALL returns the #NUM! error value. If I enter 0 for games not played then SMALL picks up the 0 as the lowest score. =(SMALL(B3:F3,1)+SMALL(B3:F3,2)+SMALL(B3:F3,3))/3. How to nest the different functions (if>0, small, and avg would be good too)

## Statistics From Golf Scores

Mar 14, 2008

I am creating a workbook to manage golfer scores, teams, winnings, handicap, ect. I am having trouble with the statistics sheet. I Need A Sub To:

1. Column "B" , take the average of the lowest 5 numbers in columns "AB" though "AU"

2. Column "C" , take the average of the lowest 10 numbers in columns "G" through "Z" divided by 0.96

3. Column "D" , take the average of the lowest 10 numbers in columns "AW" through "BP"

this needs to happen for each row where there is a name. (names added daily)

I have included a similar sheet as the one i am working with along with some command buttons typically not included. Should show some of the problems I am having.

## Golf Scoring But Have Duplicate Scores - Need To Return Unique Name

Jul 28, 2014

I am attempting to put together a golf tournament spreadsheet. I have figured out how to review a list of numbers, find the lowest ten scores and make a list of those scores. Next to that I want to have excel input the name of the player that shot that score. The problem is, a couple of scores match so excel is only returning one of the golfers names. I am trying to have it return the other golfer who scored the same score.

Here is the formula I am using in Column N:
=SMALL(\$L\$2:\$L\$21,1) This runs from 1 thru 10 for the 10 lowest scores.

Here is the formula I am using in Column O:
=INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$21,MATCH(1,INDEX((\$L\$2:\$L\$21=\$N2)*ISNA(MATCH(\$A\$2:\$A\$21,N\$2:N2,0)),0),0))

Here is the formula I am using in Column P: (gives same info as column O formula)
=INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$21,MATCH(SMALL(\$L\$2:\$L\$21,ROW(N1)),\$L\$2:\$L\$21,0))

Column A = golfers names
Column L = list of all golfers scores
Column N = lowest ten scores in order

## How To Calculate Lowest 6 Numbers In A Series Of About 30 Scores

Mar 28, 2012

I am doing a Golf scorecard but I have been having trouble figuring out how to calculate the last 6 lowest scores in a series of about 30 scores. What formula to use? Series looks like this

43 52 52 51 44 44 60 54 40 50 53 = 272

## Getting An Average Of Letters. Grade Scores

Aug 28, 2006

I'm doing a course at the mo and get graded monthly. I have a spreadsheet with my grades on 'assignment1, grade A, assignment2, grade B and so on.

What i want to do is have a cell that has the aveage of all grades. So if i had...

the average is B.

## Average Out Scores In A List Based On When The Score Was Given

Feb 24, 2010

I'm trying to average out scores in a list based on when the score was given. For example:

## Average Formula Dropping Lowest Value Or Blank Cell

Jun 5, 2007

I need to get a formula to calculate the average of the best 3 scores out of 4, but there is some that do not have a value in a cell (so some are only out of 3 scores not 4) and if i simply drop the lowest value and sum the rest, it will incorrectly calculate the average.

## Find Top X Scores Out Of 50 Scores?

Aug 17, 2009

There are scores in B1:B10 (10 scores). I want to take the top 8 scores. So I used this formula which works just fine.

=SUM(LARGE(B1:B10,1),LARGE(B1:B10,2),LARGE(B1:B10,3),LARGE(B1:B10,4),LARGE(B1:B10,5),LARGE(B1:B10,6) ,LARGE(B1:B10,7),LARGE(B1:B10,8))

But I'm trying to make the formula a bit more dynamic. Is there anyway to have a set of data in B1:B50 (50 scores will probably be the most) and take the top x scores? X will be set in a separate cell (lets just say A1)?

## Map Scores To Scaled Scores

Feb 13, 2008

I have a raw score for each case. I need to map those raw scores to scale scores. For example, a raw score of 0 to 0.49 maps to a scale score of 120, a raw score of 0.5 to 0.99 maps to a scaled score of 110, etc. There are a total of 13 possible scaled scores (120, 110, 100, ... 20, 10, 0). Is there a way to do this in Excel2003? (Note, if anyone on the list is 'bilingual' (Excel and SPSS), I'm looking for the Excel equivalent of the SPSS command RECODE raw (lo thur .49=120), (.5 thru .99=110), etc. INTO scale.

## Golf Groupings

Jun 4, 2009

i use it to arrange players for every hole during golf tournaments. The present sheet (that i have attached) will allow as few as 2 players per hole. i have been informed that it should not assign less than 3 players per hole. the math in the code needs to be adjusted so that it knows to always start with 3 somes and work up from there. i can do the math on a sheet of paper i just don't know how to code the math . the attached sheet is what a member on the forum previously did for me. i take no credit for it, i am not capable doing what this sheet does for me.

## Golf Calculator

Feb 6, 2009

Not sure if this is do-able but I figured I would try. For a golf league coming up later this year I want to figure out how many Birdies, Pars, Bogies, Dbl. Bogies and Others each (20) golfers have during the season. After each round I would input their scores and I am looking for a program that would look at the score of the hole and the par for the hole and figure out what they got 1 under par = birdie, even par = par, 1 over = bogie, 2 over = dbl bogie and 3 over = other.

I started by creating a simple if statement but it ran out too long and my other issue is adding up the number of birdies, pars..etc for each round. Meaning a golfer can have bogies on hole #1 and #2 and the if statement can take care of that but how would get a total saying the golfer had 2 bogies.

Something like this with the - meaning a column.

birdies Pars bogies dbl bogies others total holes
4 - 5 - 3 - 4 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 5 - 8 1 4 2 1 1 9

I would do this each week and total the number of each to keep a running total at the bottom of each column. We play on the same course each week so the pars for each hole can be hard coded.

## Arrange Golf Teams

Apr 21, 2009

I run a spreadsheet that manages golf tournaments. i have to group
the # of players evenly as possible on each hole once they are entered into the tournament. since the number of players varies from tournament to tournament the math gets complicated trying to get the groupings right. i can do the math on paper but do not know how to code the math in a macro. this would save me a ton of time if someone can figure this out. i have attached a sample .xls that includes all the info i could think of a person needs to see what is going on. If i am asking to much i understand and will remove the thread.

## Golf Handicapping Spreadsheet

Feb 15, 2008

I am trying to compute the handicap for a golf group. We base our handicaps on the lowest 4 of your most recent 5 rounds. I have no problem selecting the 4 lowest of 5 using the SMALL function. My problem is have the formula select only the most recent 5 rounds. Because everyone doesn't play every day the five most recent scores might be over several weeks and the others might be in the last week.

I am only entering the adjusted score (not hole by hole). The header columns have the date played.

The formula currently shows =SUM(SMALL(\$F9:\$J9,{1,2,3,4}))/4.

## If Function & Golf Analysis

Jul 5, 2008

I have been putting together workbook for my golf analysis.

Against each hole (1-18) I enter in one row which club I used from the tee which could be any of the following: D,3w,5w,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,w,s.

I also have a row that says whether I have hit the fiarway or not. If hit fairway = 1 if missed = 0.

What I want to be able to do is show the % of times I hit the fairway with each club. This would seem ida for the if function but I'm not quite sure how it would work because the result row is going to need to look at every hole to see if the club used was d,5w,3 etc etc and 'if' so then it will need to look at the row which says 'hit fairway or not' i.e. 1 or 0. This is where I get lost and am not sure if I do need the 'if' function or something else? Perhaps I need additional rows?

## Golf Score Board

Aug 7, 2009

I am organizing a golf scoreboard for my golf tournaments. Basically, this is what I want to do:

I would like to rank the players that are entered by their score, in ascending order. Basically, I want to take the column for "total strokes" and organize the numbers so that it will rank the numbers that are entered. If there are no numbers entered in a specific row, I don't want that "zero" to be ranked in the list. So for example, if I have five golfers but they are spread out over 10 rows, I would still need to have five numbers in the rank: 1,2,3,4, and 5, not 1 to 10, as if it were ranking the rows that have nothing entered in them.

This is how it will look:

Johnson - Strokes : 70 - Rank :1
Williams - Strokes : 75 - Rank : 3
Patterson - Strokes : 72 - Rank : 2

## Scoring To Break Tie (i.e. Golf)

Oct 7, 2006

I couldn't find a solution to where I'm at now, but Derks formula...
= SUMIF(\$J\$5:\$J\$44,J5,\$K\$5:\$K\$44)/COUNTIF(\$J\$5:\$J\$44,J5)

from...
excel formula

...Almost gets what I need, but my data will not always be in a high/low descending order. I'm braindead; I can't think of how to make this formula work.

## Dropdown List With 9 Golf Course Names

Dec 30, 2013

I am building a golf spread sheet with page 1 being where I will input scores, also on this page I have a drop down list with the 9 golf course names. What I have done is I have added 9 sheets with the names of each golf course, on this sheet I have added the scorecard. So what i am wanting to do is, on sheet 1 use a drop list with the name of the course, then choose what tees we are using and let it populate on sheet1 hole 1 thru 18, with the yardage and par for the hole.

## Handicap System For Golf League

Mar 18, 2007

Just starting to use excel and have a problem I hope someone can solve. Trying to set up handicap system for golf league. Column A is players. Column B shows average of last 5 rounds played and rounded to nearest whole number. column C shows the same without rounding. column D and beyond show scores with column D being the most recent. Have this all this working well with one problem. Each week I insert new column D, enter scores, and everything is recalculated. How do I deal with absent players? Is there a way to enter perhaps "A" for absent and excel will know to count the last 5 cells with numerical values only?

## Aggregate Score Sheet For Golf

Jan 31, 2014

I run a golf society and need to set up a golf aggregate sheet that will allow me to enter the players weekly scores and the sheet will then look for the lowest score entered for each player and replace it with their score of this week.

## Golf League Point Counter

Jul 15, 2006

If the number in one cell is larger than the number in another cell then i would need a 2 added to yet another cell.

I the first two cells are equal then I would need to add a 1 to that 3rd cell.

## Golf 4 Ball Random Selection With Preconditions

Apr 21, 2014

organising a golf tour for 32 players.playing in teams of 4 (4 Balls) for 4 games of golf and the teams are to be randomly selected such that no player plays in a group with a person he has played with in a previous game. finding it difficult to create a spreadsheet which meets this criteria.

need to build into the spreadsheet the fact that the variable mix of people is constrained by the fact that at least 4 persons have to use a buggy (which will have 2 people in it) and as the tour progresses and courses become physically demanding a number of people (N) for the last 2 rounds may also ask for the use of buggies as well.develop a spreadsheet to make the 4 Ball team selections.

## Formula For 2 Low Net & 1 Low Gross Score In A 5 Man Golf Team

May 25, 2008

I am using Excel 2002 in Xp and also want to use the spreadsheet on my Pocket PC using Pocket Excel.

I have a column of 10 numbers with rows 1,3,5,7 & 9 representing the individual gross scores of the 5 team members. Rows 2,4,6,8 & 10 have either a 0 or -1 (calculated) in them representing the strokes (or discount) the player receives for that hole. So the net scores for each player will be row 1 + row 2 and so on.

I need a formula that will calculate the total of the 2 lowest net scores and 1 low gross score with the score for each player only being used once which will then represent the team score for that hole.

A sample column would have 4,0,3,0,4,0,3,0,5,-1 in it.

## Create Golf Table That Shows How Many Games Are Played?

I am trying to create a golf table that shows how many games are played how many points are given for 1st 2nd 3rd and so on we give 10 pts for 9 for 2nd and so on......

## Handicap Balanced Score Card For Golf Group

Jun 10, 2006

Golfers have a numeric handicap based upon their proven ability (reported scores); the lower the handicap, the better the golfer.

My golf group is randomly drawn into handicap-balanced foursomes. If 24 guys are playing, six teams are created as follows:

1) The six players with the lowest golf handicaps are "Captains," and are randomly drawn.

2) After the Captains are drawn, the six players with the next lowest handicaps are then randomly drawn as the #2 players for each team.

3) The same process is followed to randomly determine the #3 player and #4 player for each team.

If the number of players is not divisible by four, some threesomes are then created, and one, two or three players are then on two teams. e.g., If we have 29 players, we draw 5 foursomes (20 players) and 3 threesomes (9 players). In this event, each threesome will use the scores of a randomly drawn player (Ghost) from one of the five foursomes.

(Each Threesome's "Ghost" player should be drawn from the group [captains, #2's, #3's, #4's] which will best round-out and handicap-balance the team.)

## Top 5 Scores

Jul 7, 2009

Is it possible to make a top 5 scores section?

Ive been reading up on Arrays and how to use Arrays etc so i believe that it could be done with an array but i could be complete wrong.

what i have is players names in A4 and there averages in H4. i have 22 players listed but i want to take the top 5 scores from h4 and display them in a different section with there as so: NAME(A4): AVERAGE(h4) repeated 5 times and updates Automatically.
