I suspect that any one of us would not play as well if an official was assigned to specifically watch our foot placement on every shot in our game. That's the level of compliance expected by the...

Yep. There are all kinds of behaviors incorporated in the ratings over the years. That's why the system based on Average Prop rating IN = Average Prop rating OUT works because the same relative...

Yes. Whose fault was it that they played the wrong hole? It was random that a specific player happened to be the one who played two throws before they discovered it. Who's to say that one of the...

The sporting thing to do and for speed of play, since that hole was part of the course, would have been for all four to agree to finish playing the hole and take their 2-throw penalty which would not...

The ratings you earn are related to the playing conditions for that round, and in the case of Ledgestone, the conditions for all pools playing the courses you played. To answer your question, you can...
