The purpose of handicapping golfers is to make a competitive match for golfers with different abilities.  For instance, if your average score is 88 on a par 72 course, you are given a handicap of 16. In stroke-play, if you play with a person that has a 2 handicap, you are allowed 14 strokes - the difference between your handicaps - extra strokes, one on each of the most difficult 14 holes.
