"The Rules recognise a new “Maximum Score” form of stroke play, where your score for a hole is capped at a maximum (such as double par or triple bogey) set by the Committee, so that you can pick up and move to the next hole when your score will be at or above the maximum," the R&A said.
If implemented at golf clubs throughout Australia, Maximum Score would provide a more forgiving format for use in monthly or seasonal medal competitions.
