Re: Partial Yearly Ratings
All of the individual ranking systems in other sports like golf, boxing and tennis use a full year or more of data. The do have cumulative stats for performance elements like driving, putting, shooting, first serving and batting averages specific to a year and I would fully support the PDGA providing stats like that. But not with ratings. It would have to be done for all members and would further dilute the number of rounds included. At least with a full year of data always included in a rating, more than half of our members have at least 15 rounds in their current rating at any time.
