Forgive me, but the TJ is already well underway.
This is the reason why I thought it was about GIR
Sneakylong We have some guys in our group who were struggling to hit greens in regulation. We have a minimum quota of 14.
Sneakylong Puttnfool was confused and evidently never heard of Quota. He took it as 'Quote' and thought it had something to do with greens hit in regulation.
and given the definition of "quota" 🙂
a limited or fixed number or amount of people or things, in particular.
synonyms: allocation · share · allowance · limit · ration · portion · dispensation · slice (of the pie/cake) · percentage · commission · proportion · fraction · bit · amount · quantity · cut
a limited quantity of a particular product that under official controls can be produced, exported, or imported:
"the country may be exceeding its OPEC quota of 1,100,000 barrels of oil per day"
a fixed share of something that a person or group is entitled to receive or is bound to contribute:
"the Faeroe Islands' commercial salmon quota"
a person's share of something that must be done:
"they were arrested to help fill the quota of arrests the security police had to make during the crackdown"
a fixed minimum or maximum number of a particular group of people allowed to do something, as immigrants to enter a country, workers to undertake a job, or students to enroll for a course:
"they demanded a quota for women on the committee"
(in a system of proportional representation) the minimum number of votes required to elect a candidate.
a person's share of a particular thing, quality, or attribute:
"an Irishman with a double ration of blarney and a treble quota of charm"
... particularly the "a fixed share of something that a person is entitled to contribute" and "a person's share of something that must be done".
If you say someone had trouble hitting greens in regulation and then the very next sentence say that there's a minimum quota of 14, I think the logical thing to think is that the requirement is to hit 14 GIR.
Everything would have been clearer if the reference had been to Stableford scoring as it really had nothing to do with GIR.
