I am not really sold on the "percent difference from average" rating method since it doesn't really capture the spread of the scores.

I reworked your worksheet using z-scores instead:

I agree hyzer is the angle whenever, not just at release. Of course, I have an acute feeling that all this talk of angles is just obtuse. Right?
