USBC has shown that handicap needs to be around 113% of the highest average in the league to make it even. Those numbers say a good bowler shoots over their average more often than a bad bowler shoots over theirs.

The problem with handicaps that make teams even is there will always be those who want to take advantage. Sandbagging has always been a problem in bowling.

The rules that most leagues have in place calculate averages after the first 21 games and then an average is based on total pins for the rest of the year. This mentality is asking for problems.

Instead, average should be based on the last 21 games bowled starting with week 1. Except for obvious injury, a 5 pin drop rule should be added. These 2 rules remove any incentive to sandbag.

Getting them passed is the hard part.
