I need a name for a new statistic. It's basically the inverse of standard deviation, to show how tightly packed the hole scores are.

I'm using "tightness" as a working name. (Maybe I've been watching too many Pitch Meeting vidoes.) However, that already means something when describing holes. (In fact, tighter holes will probably have less "tightness".)

I don't want to expand the name to Tightness of Scores Around... or anything that long. I want one word.

If it helps, two holes that would have very low values of this statistic would be:
Ledgestone Open 2015 / Eureka / Temp #6, and

2019 United States Disc Golf Championship / Winthrop University / Gold A #17.
This statistic will not be one where bigger is always better. Two holes where the value would be doubly high would be:
Santa Cruz Masters Cup presented by Innova - National Tour / Delaveaga Golf Course / 7475 ft #2, and

2014 PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships / Blue Lake Park / Long Tees #9.
Both of these have negative correlations to the scores of other holes in the course.

Any suggestions?

(Yes, Chuck, you can make a punny suggestion. I will ignore it.)
