I know it's a well-beat horse, but what is with such a discrepancy in league ratings vs tournament ratings?
Saturday, 11/3 - PDGA Sanctioned League
Saturday, 10/27 (second round) - Oklahoma Open A-Tier
Weather nearly the same, if not colder during our league round. The lowest round in the league was a 50 for a 1028 unofficial rating. Whereas the same score a week earlier was a 1049. Like a 59 listed as a 969 in the OO, while the same score during league round was rated 943. That is a major swing.
It's hard to pull pros, who have to shoot incredible, just to rate above 1,000. And, in my opinion, it is not a good standard to say that if some AM shoots a 46 at our course (tying Dave Feldburgs round), that they shouldn't receive the same near 1100 rating as he did that day with common conditions.
This is a common problem with the leagues, and I know you all are aware and are trying to remedy the "problem". It should be pretty cut and dry though, given that there was an A-tier just a week prior, and same weather conditions, the ratings for the scores should be identical. What's the reasoning as to why this wouldn't be the case. Or do we really believe that some 50's are better than others, as long as someone isn't playing in that tournament the same day?
Appreciate your insight and response Chuck.
