   * If you apply the 100% handicap, then pairs will be given an adjustment of the full weight of the difference between their NGS grades and 50%.\\ e.g. Two 60% players (each with a handicap of -5) in partnership will be given an overall adjustment of -10% (the sum of their handicaps).\\ If all players performed according to their NGS "​expectation",​ then they should all score approximately 50% after the application of the handicap. ​ This in turn should mean that all participants should have an equal chance of winning, regardless of their ability.\\   * If you apply the 100% handicap, then pairs will be given an adjustment of the full weight of the difference between their NGS grades and 50%.\\ e.g. Two 60% players (each with a handicap of -5) in partnership will be given an overall adjustment of -10% (the sum of their handicaps).\\ If all players performed according to their NGS "​expectation",​ then they should all score approximately 50% after the application of the handicap. ​ This in turn should mean that all participants should have an equal chance of winning, regardless of their ability.\\
