Default Question on Flex Starts

For any of you Texans (or others ) who play in the Dynamic Flex Start events- how are tee times allocated?

Both the flexes I've done, were show up in the allotted timeframe, form a foursome(or threesome at one of them we were near the end of the allotted time when we got there) and go.

Any flex start events I have played, meant show up, form groups and play. No tee times, just wait for the group in front of you to clear the hole and throw. If you hit a busy time in the event, you may be lined up waiting on your turn on the tee.

Yeah, it is typically first come, first served. Divisions don't matter -- just as soon as you get a threesome or foursome (if it so happens) be ready to tee off. He'll rarely allow fivesomes on flex starts, and sometimes allow a group to "play through" if both groups agree.

Stevo's Flex starts will nearly always give a range -- for example, first tee time is no earlier than 8:30, and last tee time is no later than 4:30, or something like that -- depending upon the time of year and the staff's schedule. Players often will make calls ahead of time and get a group to show up at the same time if they really want to play together.

I suppose the big question is whether players check the meteorological data before deciding when to play.

Flex start and tee time rounds should not be rated due to this.

Or, statistical tests could be used to divide the players into pools with similar scoring conditions.

I disagree strongly. If the weather conditions change in a major way then the TD should note it in the report and they should not be rated. Otherwise they should.

What like an early round with little wind, but an afternoon round having 20-30 mph winds? Something like that never happens in the midwest.
