Hi Mndiscg,

The DGCR rating system is probably at-best a very rough ballpark estimate of how you would play in a tourney setting (and I say that as one of the folks who helped design it). Here are...

I *believe* that when/if you get a waiver from the PDGA Tour Manager to institute a lottery or other method of restricting registrations, you must specify exactly how all spots will be handled. i.e....

You can get a waiver from the PDGA Tour Manager to allow you to handle registration for the event(s) differently than first-come-first-serve.

For the kind of NW events that RoyalHill and others are talking about, I think you underestimate the speed at which the (specific) events will fill. It's not an hour. It's ten minutes, tops. And no,...

Jeepers.. remind me to stock up on Firebirds and Destroyers (maybe Bosses even) if I do get into the event. :P That layout makes me soooo glad I throw LHBH. :P

Is the little creek OB? If so, moving 1 meter in from the OB line would put his lie roughly where he played it from. Otherwise.. yeah, I don't see any way he should have played from where he did...

Hi Voice of Reason,

Indeed, every single data point used in calculating 'new' ratings has some amount of inaccuracy built into it, because the system itself is based around the day-of performance...

I agree.. I don't understand how a disc still in the air can be ruled OB. What if the disc crosses an OB line (out), crosses it again (in), misses a mando, and finally crosses the OB line a third...

But the full penalty may not be the same for both. A player who goes OB has the option to either rethrow from their previous lie or play from where their disc crossed OB. A player who misses a mando...

Hi Voice of Reason,

I'm afraid this is incorrect. Courses do not have SSA's. Rounds do. If you'd read through that post I linked you, you should observe that SSA's are calculated each and every...

Hi Voice of Reason,

As others have mentioned already, you seem to be a bit confused as to how ratings (both 'round' and 'player') are calculated. If it helps, I wrote a post a while back that...

It's a 602ft. par 3.. I'm pretty sure that one is a misassignment. With lots of OB and moderate winds, I don't see how that one can actually play as a par 3.

The closest to that I've seen is the Maple Hill course, where a 1020-rated round generally hovers around even Par. Personally, I like the concept of calibrating 'par' against SSA. i.e. for a Gold...
