Didn't intend to be snide. Simply that each sport has it's own scoring, stats and terminology that players eventually learn to become insiders. It doesn't matter if the general public knows what...

Good question. We chose to transform the calculations so "scratch" would be set at 1000 (versus zero in ball golf) for a few reasons: (1) It eliminated the need for decimal points, (2) It eliminated...

I didn't say the 80 round props ratings weren't more precise in terms of historical accuracy due to smaller std dev. However, their ability to establish current performance doesn't appear to be any...

Your comment proves my point. We're using more data. We don't have the luxury of the amount of data per event and player that might be more ideal. We have to produce ratings based on what we have...

The Super props were a subset of the same field, let's say 15 out of 70. The SSA produced by the Super Props was the same as the other 55 non-super props. However, even though they happened to...

That's what you might think but it didn't pan out in the data. Remember this is a an ongoing dynamic process. The more round data in a rating, the older the numbers on average. So while that player's...

I'm guessing many of those signs were ones laser printed prior to Pro Worlds in 2007. At least using laser toner, they didn't fade as much as inkjet or they would have been long gone by now.

Yes. Basically, the numbers generated by the super props were essentially the same as the regular props. So no need to do the extra work to differentiate props. It also makes us feel better that...

The fact that only those with ratings based on at least 8 rounds helps with producing a better average. Although statistically, the numbers might be better if it took more rounds to become a...

You lefties should ask the course maintainers to smooth out that ground on 4 so you can BH roll it. ;)

What 1978 is saying is when 25% means only two of four rounds in an event should get double weighted, you would think it's R3 and R4. But it's actually the two rounds with your highest ratings that...

There's no indication that a lower score is more difficult to shoot for those with the skill level. The progression appears to be linear at least for shooting birdies, presuming par is correct. Lower...

Yes, I'm aware of that. However, some also call these uncut areas OB which can sometimes be more of a penalty than fits the crime of a slightly offline throw.

A possible step in the S&D direction would be to have fairway bunkers where there was no penalty but you had to S&D from that area. This would allow courses that were tree poor to create bunker areas...

There are more people where the skew in the round ratings is toward the bottom (longer tail with lower ratings) because it's more difficult to shoot above your rating than below it. As a result, even...

There's no such thing as a fixed course rating like SSE or SSA. They are in a general value range but the value calculated for ratings is always situation based. I think that's why players get upset...

Par does not take into account penalties since they are not good throws in the average. So quite a few holes on Eureka and Northwood are actually one less par than the average or mode would indicate.
