Played in my first tournament last month...still not a PDGA member, but there was only pro, advanced, and intermediate. So I played intermediate. I got smoked. I tied for last, or second to last. And it was at my "home" course. I probably average a few over par, but he, first tournament. My first round was +11.
One round I shot was rated 907 thought

Oh! It's that even though someone might think they will do alright, or even well, they still gotta start at the bottom to see where they really stand against everyone else.
Int winner? Not rated, and he shot -11, 970/963/970/944. Second place was even.
