Went from 967 to 949 in two disastrous rounds.
Here they both are, side by side:

Your excluded rounds were so bad that the PDGA does not take them seriously.

I need to stop playing events on 10/1. I always suck once the weather starts to turn. Started the year at 942. Dropped to 939 next update. Then slowly built to 951. Only to have it all erased by the last 2 updates (last 4 events). Back down to 940.

Got my first ever rating today. . 891, i´m ok with that as a 47y player that plays once a week

Fun to have 900 as a goal for 2020

Up another 5 points to 870. Showing steady improvement at 66 yrs old is pretty cool.

10-Dec 2019 PR 944
24-Jan 2017 PR 944
26-Aug 2014 PR 944
1-Sep 2009 PR 944

Safe to say I've leveled off.

Started the year at 994 and ended the year at 994 had some issues with patience and played the least casual golf I have played in my career. Gotta get back to practicing and working on all aspects of my game.

863 on Jan. 1, now 880, for a net of +17 on the year. It's progress for sure, but there's lots to do next year.

I've decided I want to try sanctioned events again next year. It's been about 15 years. I briefly touched 951 at my apex back then with a small sample size, but was mainly 910-930. My heyday was 1999-2001. We'll see how I fit in this time around playing am masters. I unfortunately work every Sunday and most of the MA 40+ tournaments locally are that day but there are a few Saturday ones and I'll try dipping my toes in the water again.

I wonder how much different a 930-rated player is today versus 20 years ago? Will I fit in with MA 40+ throwing my speed 9 drivers no more than 300-330', decent accuracy in the woods, and decent putting? I'd like to think so. We'll find out.
