Round ratings for split tournament...
Question for Chuck or any other ratings guru:
Because of the sloppy weather, rough terrain, and wanting to get the rounds completely in a timely manner, the field was split in half so that part of the field played the North course first while the other half played the South course. After lunch break, we switched of course... so in the end, all players played both courses. The conditions were the same for both rounds... very little wind, rainy, and miserable to say the least.
My question is... I thought that a the same score on the same course would be rated the same. So why would a 62 round on the North course in the morning be rated 889 but in the afternoon be a 907?
Perhaps this will be fixed later as it seems every tournament I play in has post tournament adjustments... or is there some other factor that I'm not aware of like who you're playing with during that round at work here? Maybe the TD failed to note the course difference in the results? I don't think this is it, because I can see that a 62 on the South course in the morning was a 951.
