Chuck, have you ever considered dropping late penalties and wrong score penalties from total scores for rounds only for the purpose of calculating round ratings
Yes we have. The question we had was whether this might be a typical behavior for the player or not. If so, then it should be part of their rating because they might be prone to this error every so often. We weren't smart enough to divine one time situations versus a pattern so we've left it in there, let alone the hassle of TDs having to flag scores on TD reports. Remember that players who shoot more than 60 points below their rating are excluded from the SSA calc. So if someone is late by two holes, there's a good chance that score may not be used for the SSA even if it isn't low enough to get excluded from that player's rating average.
