Its the rules they use. They use Stroke and Distance on a couple holes, iirc. Also, the PDGA sometimes tests new things there.

The ratings gurus have determined that some of the course rules they use have a detrimental influence on the calculations compared to typical tournaments. Specifically, things like how they restrict OB options on certain holes (e.g. the island hole 17).

Seems like as long as the average rating of the field Paul is playing against climbs and Paul wins, Paul's rating will continue to climb. Could this "bubble up" effect be a flaw in the ratings system?
