I know this has probably been explained before somewhere else, and that this is probably not the appropriate forum for asking this question but since the search feature on this site is so cumbersome and the PDGA boards for some reason will not let me post this there I appeal to all learned golfers, specifically in the field of understanding player ratings, to answer a question for me.
At worlds this year both MPO and FPO played their semi-final round at WW correct? If so, how is it possible that, for example, Valerie Jenkins shot a 50 and received a round rating of 1041 while Eric McCabe also shot a 50 and received a round rating of 1017? Since they were playing the same course, at the same time, it seems to me that it makes sense that the ratings should be the same and not at all different. But, obviously, if I am wrong about the venue for semis then that makes sense. Does anyone out there have the necessary wisdom or divining powers to answer this question for me? Thanks.
