We've only done it for high profile events where we know it's been an issue in the past like GCC and Memorial. And then it's only by divisions. But sometime the "unfairness" is within the division itself when the divisions are large and tee times span several hours.
Maybe the ratings should take that ectra step then? I can get the TD's to report the differing conditions considering I was part of the oversight committee.
I am sure they can at least put the difference in wind for each pool. The ratings can't be perfect but things like this are easily fixed and should be but it just shows that even for the best in the worlf the gamme is just a hobby with many loose ends that just seemingly come to be expected.
