I'm talking sustained ratings. The highest sustained ratings are in the 1030's, and 1040's. Nobody plays "100" rated golf.

I'm sorry, I was half asleep when I posted above. I see what you're saying New.

Low is...who knows. Probably in the 500's.
I knew of a player with a PDGA rating of 445. Presumably someone could have such a rating with DGCR, if he dared to enter scores.

At a non-sanctioned event at Stoney Hill, two people shot scores that, if they'd been shot in the sanctioned tournament a week before and if points-per-stroke was linear (which I assume it's not), I figured would have been a rating of 8.

In the wide spectrum of disc golfers, "who knows" is a fine estimate.

All right David, you have to share a little more. How does one shoot an 8?

LOL - Dare I laugh? 8? I was behind a guy Friday that took seriously over 12 throws just to get to the 170f basket but it was his first day.

I just finished field work and my wife had some bombs at 70 feet. Her best yet. I had my record length with a disc I considered too heavy for me 174g Patriot.

I only have 5 rounds under my lifetime belt and am sitting at 733 but there is a 675 in wind that sort of hurts.

an 8 is still better than the guy who shot in the negatives

I went back and looked through my old rounds. 9 hole courses score out differently for some reason... they did get in to explaining it somewhere around here but I can't say I care that much about it to sit through the statistician orgy of numbers that was bouncing around... But, I digress....

Looking through my old rounds, I've got quite a few that are sub 500, a few in the 200s.

Currently my average overall is rising, 597 at the moment. I'm not really playing any better, but I moved recently and my home course is now an 18 holer, which gives higher round rating scores my suckage in comparison to the same type of round at the 9 hole course.

At some point, you know when you're scoring double digits on one hole that your play that round sucks. Only the true gluttons for punishment are going to line up to see that on screen afterwards.
And most of those will run for cover if Tim publishes a chart, putting a big spotlight on the vortex of suckage.

Go throw, have fun, the rest of this is just for laughs.

I've started recording rounds in my scorebook. DGCR rated my 48 at my home course a 1037, no way. I tried to change the prefilled in distances and par for the holes. For example, hole #2 at Meeman Shelby Forest East that I played was in the short position, 380'. Even though DGCR over road my correction and calculated the hole as position C, 527' and called it a par 4 so my round recorded -7 instead of -6. Also, I play the West a lot and shot a personal low -11 but since the course doesn't have any entered distances (didn't take the ones I entered) I get no DGCR rating whenever I enter a round for that course. For the record I'm probably 970 with my highest PDGA rated rounds last year at 1015 & 1019 this year. Its a good score tracker but that's about it as many courses around here don't have distances uploaded and tee and pin locations are subject to change randomly.

You have to manually input the correct distances when you enter your scorecard. I'm not exactly sure how all of that works, Timg could answer that better. I believe it uses the course distance you put on your scorecard.

If the courses in your area don't have distances listed then list them.

I'm a 937 on DGCR and a 859 on PDGA... Easy to see I only put my best rounds in on here.
