Re: Ratings are approximate
I agree that it would be nearly impossible to figure out fairly (or even logistically). In my second tourney, out of town, I felt like I played well but still only tied for 8th out of 32 (this was int. division). That's not all that bad but after the ratings came out I found that I was in fact the highest rated player in that division in that tourney by 14 points. So now I am going to play adv. this weekend (my rating is well above the 914 cut-off) in a PDGA tourney but my expectations are not high. I have a feeling that after a couple of more tourneys that my next rating will be much lower, maybe even back into the int. division. Clearly the more tourneys you have under your belt the more accurate your rating is relative to your actual skill level.
