Good friend of mine played intermediate (just didn't know how he stacked up) in his first sanctioned event and shot 982, and 1019. Still a solid player today but not 1000 rated

Probably not quite the rating, but I was TDing a 1-day event where a guy made his debut in Intermediate. He wasn't a long-time non-member, just a new player.

His first round he smoked it, and had a 10-stroke lead. 10 strokes, after 1 round.

By the end of the second round, he'd blown the entire 10-stroke lead.

(He was tied, and won the playoff, though).

I'd argue that the circumstances DiscFifty references is one of the biggest reasons the PDGA encourages awarding memberships.
The PDGA might not mind, but non-consensual membership might run afoul of national laws, particularly data protection/privacy laws. The membership sign-up process requires the member-to-be's name, address, phone number, email & date of birth. If the PDGA does not have the actual persons consent to have and store this info then there is a chance they are not in compliance with some data protection law. Here in the UK we have just had GDPR come into effect, and at a quick glance that does not allow a 3rd party to give consent on behalf of another (unless they have 'authority'). I don't know what similar laws the USA has.

Also, the sign-up process allows consent to be given (by ticking a box) to passing on the members contact info to disc golf related 3rd party businesses. All without their consent.

Not saying it is a problem that needs addressing - just noticing.

All of that aside, if the serial-deliberate-sandbagger lifestyle exists, then surprise 'ha!you're a member now m*****f*****', seems like a pro level counter move.

Sounds familiar, no longer current though, a one rating wonder.

A guy I know in Charlotte shot a 1030 round for his first ever rating. Everyone was quite surprised, including him. I think he played enough other rounds that his rating went back down before his first rating, but if he only played that one round, he could have been 1030 at least for one update.

Ratings were updated after the TD's report was submitted and it dropped him down to 988.
