The PDGA does an AWESOME job organizing your rounds by date, NOT!
What about this tournament, smarty pants?

Mr Smarty Pants was looking at the wrong data. Your oldest round is April 28, 2012. Your most recent round is April 28, 2013. (btw If you click on the date header, the ratings detail will sort by date) I don't recall with Multi-Day events which date is used (first or last). Chuck would have to answer that one.

trust me, I hear it all the time. Lots of people remember when I had a good year back in 2009. Now, I get to play maybe once or twice a month, typically shoot very mediocre when I do get to play, and all anyone wants to do is tell me how I belong in the open division after they beat me in a 1 round league event by 8 strokes.

I took cash 2 years after my very first tournament. Started playing pro at a lowly 940. Took me almost 3 years to really find any success. Most of my issues were mental. I hadn't even really played Pro yet, it was Pro2. But Advanced didn't really offer much excitement. If more people like 1978 (great beyond normal Advanced player) would move up, more of the burgeoning ams would cash, and the pro fields would also be bigger. Neither is a bad thing. You aren't going to Worlds, so maybe it's time?

Down 3 to 820. My first two tournaments of the season were added, where I didn't show the sort of improvement I had hoped for. For the first time ever, a tournament fell out of my calculation, also. But, about a wash.

I was surprised that the June 15 Chain Reaction in Joliet
http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/100657
didn't make it in - the preliminary results were available fairly promptly.

In the next update that tournament (where I shot one of the best rounds of my life, certainly the highest PDGA rated, at 917) will more or less displace another early-in-my-first-year tournament, and my rating should go up a bit.

Even if my other summer tournaments are at a high level, it looks like I may not make it above 850 this year, as I'd sort of hoped. But, if I can even manage 2-3 tournaments above 850, I'll be pleased at some definite progress. We'll see. Maybe I'll still get a chance to win Novice sometime. (At Joliet I lost in a sudden death CTP after four holes of sudden death playoff. If I'd played my second round anything like the first, it wouldn't have been an issue. Alas!)

For whatever reason the PDGA set a deadline for this last update of 6/11 rather than the traditional two weeks before (which would have been 6/18).

Holding steady at 976. Once my most recent tourneys get in, though... I figured Am Nationals would have been entered by now. I'm waiting for a bunch of old rounds to fall off. Alas, I shall have to be content that my rating hasn't gone down at any update. Yay!

went up to 927. I really wish those really bad old rounds would start dropping. I still have an 838 round in there, even though it used to be dropped but it got re added after I played a terrible tourney in january.

I dont understand why I still have tournaments from last April still showing up in my history!!! I've played 7 new events this year, including 3 this past April. My rating didnt move, still at 958. I've averaged 963 in my last 22 consecutive rds, and only have 32 in my history. I give up on trying to figure out this rating system.....
