General Banter / Re: Ratings?
« on: August 17, 2013, 01:07:31 PM »
copied and pasted your ratings into an excel spreadsheet.
Your 38 rounds used from Run from the Roses last year until now averages 862.82.
The last 25% of your rounds are double weighted which would bring your average up slightly.
Your median is 865.5
Your Mid-America tournament is still dragging you down. 783,786,813
The 807 KCWo 2013 & Might Mo (807 & 817) is recent, so it is being double weighted which is also dragging you down.

Without seeing your ratings from last year that produced 866, my guess is while you have had some really good rounds (942, 926, 924) you have had some really rough rounds that are balancing it out, producing a statically net neutral change.

Also, if you have 1 or 2 really, really bad rounds (i.e. more than a 2 or 2.5 negative differential, the PDGA formula drops them off.  So it is actually better to have 1 or 2 just absolutely terrible rounds then 4-5 mediocre bad rounds. 

From a statistical analysis perspective, while there is a lot of griping about the PDGA rating system, IMHO once you get above 15-20 rounds, it really is pretty accurate.  On a round by round basis, not so much, on a weighted average basis over 20, it's pretty good.

For example, I had my first sub-700 round (689) at NE League at Blue Valley.  Am I really that bad?  No - long holes just kill me.  I also had a 912, 921, and 930 at NE League at Cliff.  Am I really that good?  No.  My 908 at Am Worlds I think is a legit 900+, but I trust that rating more because there were 80+ propagator players being analyzed, and the NE League where I got my 689 had only 14 propagators.  That is one of the reasons why they throw out super bad rounds.

It's made by Innova.  It says so on the bottom.  There is also some pen writing in the center that says DS along with the weight.

They are not gone yet.  If they get a few years use, sounds reasonable to me.
Then when they do go, people may possible ask for permanent benches.

The cards are nice, would be great if the center logo was removed.

General Banter / Re: Friday Traveling League - 8/16/13 ?????

I vote for Atchison. Total of 27 holes.

Course condition as of 8/13:
Super condition. Mowed today. No litter. Beautiful.

Looks like the 9-hole was a bit rough as of 8/13, but if they just mowed the 18, the 9 may be done by 8/16.
