Fewer holes played provides less data/strokes to determine a rating so it has higher points per throw than 18. Some TDs will report scores on 13 hole layouts for 2 rounds combined so players get a 26-hole rating instead of the more volatile 13-hole ratings.

Chuck, any insights on the new Double Disc format where each player plays each hole twice simultaneously? I would think that people ahoot better and pergapa with smaller variance that way, but have you checked are the ratings significantly different than feom normal two rounds format?

I haven't looked into it but it shouldn't make much difference. If everyone shoots just a bit better with their second disc, it will simply lower the SSA for that round and keep everyone's round rating the same.

Is the points per stroke only a function of what the SSA is, or do other factors influence the points per stroke?

would you recommend this for a 13 hole course with a projected SSA around 29 ?

That's probably too low for MPO to play it. If you said 39 or 36, not 29, then should be okay.

what if there were no pros. I'm in malaysia and we won't have any regular pros, and only a couple real MA1 level players. i did my guesswork wrong, SSA will probably be close to 32-33

The main idea is to give your highest rated player "ratings breathing room" so they can shoot 4-5 throws better than their rating without having to shoot a round lower than say 45 for 18 holes. For players around 900, they might shoot a 980 round tops on a great day on 18 holes. If that's a 48, then the SSA for 18 holes is in the 46 neighborhood. If a player is at 980, they might shoot a 1050. If the SSA is 46, they have to shoot a really low score like 40 or 41 to get that 1050. I would still recommend playing two rounds of 13 and submitting the total as one round of 26. Remember that each round is weighted based on the number of holes. So your players will get full credit for 26 holes without the volatility inherent in calculating ratings for just 13.

I never knew ratings were weighted based on number of holes. that makes it an easier decision
