The ESC procedure sets a maximum score that a golfer can post for handicap purposes on any hole. The maximum number depends on the golfer's course handicap. Comparing each score to par is no longer necessary, so there's no need to worry about the number of scores you can reduce to a certain level. The accompanying table tells you the maximum score you can post for any one hole.
|18-HOLE COURSE HANDICAP||9-HOLE COURSE HANDICAP||MAXIMUM SCORE POSTED

|10 through 19||5 through 9||7|
|20 through 29||10 through 14||8|
|30 through 39||15 through 19||9|
