Lets try not to be hyperbolic. Steve's analyses generally recommend lowering par on 2-4 holes each course. Hardly every hole

The definition: “Par is the score that an expert disc golfer would be expected to make on a given hole with errorless play under ordinary weather conditions, as determined by the Director.”

The definition only cares about setting pars for the expert disc golfer. Additionally, Steve's method is based upon defining an expert player as 1000 rated for MPO. He can calculate his pars based on any player rating for which he has sufficient data.
