I think timg might be re-running the script that sets the rating for every round in the DGCR database.. it could take a while.

Historical rounds (and thus player ratings) should now be fixed and updated to the current formulas. Hopefully we have a better handle on non-18-hole course round ratings now, although there may well still be some outliers.

Round ratings are looking really good! A few of my recent rounds were looking a little low and high and both ends have come back towards where they should be. Great work gents.

Alright, the newest SSE formulas should be working properly now, and all SSE's and round/player ratings are updated too. This does *not* mean, however, that some courses won't still have SSE's that don't match up with 'real' SSA data.. so if anyone comes across anything that looks amiss, please let us know!

Thanks for the DGCR ratings. Cool tool. Any plans to have an OB factor in the ratings calc? I changed the course to Heavily wooded and got more accurate ratings, but that doesn't represent the course correctly. Woods factor for that course has since been changed back to moderate.

timg needs to give the official answer on this, but I will chime in on 2 things.

The foliage description (Lightly, Moderately, and Heavily wooded) is much more valuable to most for describing how the course feels and how shady it is than for its effect on SSE and Player Ratings. timg has stated several times that he will change things back to the appropriate value if users change it to make adjustments to SSE & Player Ratings.

We have discussed adding a "Technicality" field to act as an adjustment like you are suggesting. "Technicality" would cover high amounts of OB, very punishing greens (high roll-away potential), and lots of short fairway segments (as in 300' L-shaped holes). These are the elements that bring the average throw length down that cannot be captured by the SSE formulas that are currently based solely on course length and foliage. I have no idea on where timg's head is at in regards to implementing something like this.

The technicality field is already part of the system, it's just a private admin field that I can adjust as needed.
