Is that a function of playing with better players, or just you playing more after winter was done?

The one thing I noticed when I started in open was my rds were rated higher. My what would be 950 rated rd in advance would be 960 or more in open. So in that aspect I was a better golfer just for stepping up

I'm inconsistent as all get out, hence my rating at 893. I stepped up to intermediate this past season and my rating has been all over the map. My first tourney in intermediate I placed 1 spot out of cash. My next tourney I lost by 1 stroke in the final round of a hard course. My last two tournies I played at courses I've never seen before and shot above and below my rating.

I think this is a typical 900 rated player. I think course familiarity is the biggest factor for players in ams. I will put this to the test as I'm playing a tournament in a few weeks that I frequent.

I was in Korea for the winter, and it was very mild. I was actually playing quite a bit MORE before tourney season. Coming back to the States as really taken away my free time. I'm lucky to get two casual rround in per week, as opposed to one per day in Korea.
