Your last rated round is August 2013, therefore everything back to August 2012 should be included.

ratings only drop when you add new ratings... if those ratings are more than a year old. If you haven't played an event or rather, if an event was not included in an update, no new rounds added, hence no old rounds dropped. If an event isn't showing and it has been a while, contact the Tour Manager and the TD.

Such excitement out there!

Well, this makes the 17th consecutive ratings update that I've been stuck in an 11-point-wide zone.

It's getting increasingly hard to convince myself that I'm not really as bad as my rating says I am.

At first, it might seem odd that we don't just include the 12 months of rounds prior to each ratings update. However if we did that, players' ratings would disappear if they didn't play for a year. Now, you make your previous year round ratings disappear simply by playing at least 8 rated rounds each year.

AH.....tanks a ton.

I understood it to mean it was the last 12 months / 365 days from the date of the most current rating update.

Glad to be playing in 3 weeks to drop off a bunch of old stuff.

I've always thought it should be like 360 days... so you DON'T include the same weekend in consecutive years. I mean, shouldn't your rating be based on your most recent performance? To include both weekends, you MANY TIMES include the last two years of the last event played. I would rather forget the past and live off my most recent performance.

This issue has been discussed several times since ratings began. We've always come down on the side that including more rounds in a rating is statistically better than a slightly more recent average with fewer rounds, especially since the average PDGA player averages only 16 rated rounds per year. It's admittedly a coin flip judgment call.

Chucks,

Perhaps some sort of rule where if you have X number of tournaments, you drop the one on the same weekend of last year... if you don't, it stays to allow for more rated rounds. In general, I would think frequent players would prefer only their most recent crack at a course to represent their current rating.
