The Callaway Scoring System was invented by English golfer Lionel Frank Callaway who emigrated to the United States where he became a pro at Pinehurst. He is best known for inventing the Callaway Scoring System which gives occasional golfers a chance to compete in tournaments with very skilled golfers, by calculating a one-round handicapped score.
Lionel Frank Callaway started development of his handicap system while a pro at Bradford, Pennsylvania.
"He noticed that scores wouldn't look so bad if occasional 10s or 12s were omitted. So he crossed them out."
..."That's the essence of the Callaway system."
