SPART for Standard Par Thickness. Bigger SPART would mean scores are more tightly packed around your calculated par value if I understand what you're getting at?

The leading candidates now are pithiness, succintness, and compactness. I want a positive connotation.

"Bunching" is what I call the tendency of random scores to create ties. Which is bad.

a few ideas for the compactness of scores

gridlock as in high performers and crappy performers are all stuck at same spot due to hole design
bottleneck where a better player is prevented from distancing from a lesser than due to hole design
socialist/communist haha as in we prevent the gifted from outperforming the challenged due to hole design

Hole Enables Lesser Players or HELP as in I was having a hard time keeping up with McBeth until I got to that stretch of HELP holes and I was able to hang around

Thanks, but that's not what this stat covers. What you are talking about is narrow scoring spread.

Compactness is when Paul gets a 3/3/4/4, and I get a 6/6/7/7.

Lack of compactness is when Paul gets a 2/3/4/5 and I get a 4/5/7/10.

Sorry to thread drift, but where would hole 4 at brp fit on the “bunching” meter?

It's Hole and Course Performance Statistics, so that's not a drift at all.

444 has a good correlation to ratings and to the scores of other holes, as well as good scoring spread.

What happens is that all skill levels can get a 4 about half the time. But, the other half of the time their scores are very much reflective of skill. Only the best get 3s, and only the worst get 6s. Which works better than most holes.

It's hole 3 now for most tournaments.
