A propagator's score will not be used for determining the SSA if they shoot more than 60 pts below their rating. We do a double pass to make sure extremely poor rounds of propagators are not included. So that's tighter than the guideline for dropping a round rating from their rating.
I stand corrected on the amount below that a certain score can be counted. Thanks for the clarification. So theoretically all 5 props could be shooting 60 points worse than their rating. IF this was the case, would you choose 5 new props to base the ratings on, even though the original 5 fell within your acceptable range? If they were used, the course would seem to be playing much harder than it actually was, based on:
"So if all five propagators in a pool in theory shoot 50 points better than their rating, they really didn't. They all shot their rating that round. However, the course happened to be 5 shots easier that day"
I know you said it's never happened, but humor me...
