Default PDGA Ratings

I am curious how the PDGA formulates your current rating. How many rounds does it count and does it throw out your top and bottom rated rounds?

The reason i ask is I have played in 3 tourneys now and do not have a rating established because they did the newest ratings the day before my first tourney.

I have rounds of 693, 821, 784, 857, 871, 821 which comes to an average of 808, but I think they have to go on some sort of trend, I just don;t know how mnay rounds until you lose a poorly rated score. I am curious if that will be my rating or if my low round will be tossed. I couldnt find this info on their site so I thought I would bring it to my favorite people!

Thanks, I found it buried deep in that link. Maybe I was just tired of reading and gave up I am not sure.

It looks like my worst round is being dropped then, raising my expected rating from 808 to 830! Yeah!

If you double the last 25% of your rounds (actually they double the the entire tournament of your last tournament, so that is the last 2 rounds I believe), it looks like your rating will probably be 835.....If I got the order of your ratings correct.

Just had to get you those extra points since I am in Pewaukee for the day.

Thats right I forgot about the doubling factor. I did write this down. I was just curious what to expect my first rating to be.

I am pretty happy with that rating since I only started playing the sport 4 months ago! I would like to be in the Mid 800's by the middle of the year, assuming I am able to play some more tourneys!

If you're a beginner that's steadily improving (not a phenom) over a year or so it will be hard to get a good rating for at least a year because you'll be carrying around those lower rated rounds that bring your average down... until they drop off your record after about a year.

Yeah, I can't wait for January of next year. Dropping that one 7something rated round that I have. Of course if I have anything above 850 by the end of my first year of playing this crazy game I am going to be stoked.

I used an excel spreadsheet, that calculates ratings. Your rating for the 6 rounds you gave came out to 831. The 693 round is not counted, because it's too low. You need a minimum of 8 rounds before any of the latest rounds are doubled. Hope this helps.
