977 980 974 982 (average for a 60, 978)

Azalea Open
R1-R4 Score of 60
Average player rating 963, average propigator rating 963
989 988 994 993 (average for a 60, 991) (13 pts higher)

How is this not mostly because of the higher rated players in the open tournament padding the ratings of the rounds.
I've seen the exact same thing on several occasions

My favorite example is from this tournament:
http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/16071

Round 3: Pro and Adv played with extremely tight OBs and 5 longer tees, INT and lower played on the same course at the exact same time without the OBs and from the regular tees. An INTs 72 was rated higher from the easier layout than the 72s from the tougher layout.

I wish I could find the response when I asked CK about it. It was actually pretty comical, something about having to be more focused to get 2s with the added OB, thus making it easier
