I'm so upset I missed the first one.  I need to log on to the forum more often.  I'll be there next Monday and make sure I'm off every Monday from here on out.

i have a question, i was just reading up on the rec league at rosedale and i noticed when i was at cliff drive it was open and advanced, is their any real downside to rec playing the pdga league at cliff to get a better or say more accurate rating? and is cliff strictly open and advanced? okay let me break down that question, if a rec player plays advanced yet puts up a rec rated round would that hurt a rating in any way? i wouldnt mind playing the rec league but to grow in the sport id rather share the pad with top experience but im not trying to get my rating any lower than it already is.

PDGA ratings are established for players based on their score during a round as compared to propagators playing the same round. the division you play in and who you play against does not factor in.

Playing with better competition will only make you better, thus make your rating better as well :D

ALthough true on the surface, this isn't entirely the case.  Your rating will be higher the more you play with higher rated players.  If you play a round with only people that are 1000 rated or higher, and then play a round with people only rated between 900-925 and shoot the same score, your rating when you played with the 1000+ rated individuals will be higher.

To answer your question though playing in a different division during the PDGA league your chances are that your rating will only improve in all honesty, unless you regress in your playing.

Please do remember that this Monday we are scheduled to be at Blue Valley though.  This week we will be playing the "inner course"

The ratings are posted.  I haven't figured out yet how to evaluate Par for people that miss a week, I will see if there is a fix.  If you want to have me change your division rankings on the PDGA site, please let me know.

I am finding some issues with this that I will be working on addressing.  For example, Matt Perry won last night in Open, but I bet he wants points as an Am since he plays Am....so do I change his code to Am even though he played as a Pro last night?  Am I going to have to move this ever week?  Or do I work on keeping 2 spreadsheets and posting actual scores in here from the league, and then having the PDGA really only be a place for points and ratings?

So as it stands right now, I have pretty much no idea of how this works.  I am trying to figure this out.

I will keep this posted.

Yeah, I have no idea how it works, but I think there is something missing.

For instance, let's say Jason Gillow never plays again in Advance.  Since he had one round at +20, or 21 whatever it is, does he take First Place, along with the points, compared to Andy, Ryan and I even if we play every round?  Or how about he ends up playing 4 rounds, but some other guy only plays 2 rounds, shouldn't Jason get more points then the other guy?

This league posting is interesting.  Not sure if it is correct, but check out the placements, points, etc., particularly in Adv and Int.

http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/91919

At first I thought it ranked all those that played 5 rounds together, than ranked those that played 4 rounds, etc., but this isn't quite the case.  In Adv, first guy played 6 rounds, second place played 4 rounds, third place played 5 rounds.

Probably read this, but just in case: Introduction to PDGA Leagues:

In my mind, if a guy plays 'Open' he's MPO.  If he wants to play Am - then he plays AM and is only entitled to funny money and not actual hard currency.  Just my opinion, you're the TD.

Wait, you can accumulate points at these?  What is the point scale? Are they classified as C-tiers?


Yes you get points.
No they are not C-tiers
They are a step below C's.  See last column.

Note: points are per week, not for the whole season.

Actually, this makes it more interesting.
First week, I would get only 2.5 pts because I was the bottom.
However, for 2nd week, I should get 5 pts because I beet Ryan.

Jack - maybe Kevin McCoy has some advice, etc., on how this is posted?  Maybe my posting above,

has more to do with how many people you beat each week then how many rounds you played.  This would make way more sense.

Jack, I seem to be missing from last nights scores.  I was on the same card as Joe, Matt, and Jordan and shot a 60.

That is incorrect-
http://www.pdga.com/faq/leagues-0
Do players earn PDGA points?

Yes. Players will earn C-tier points based on their final finish position as reported to the PDGA by the League Director.

In my mind, if a guy plays 'Open' he's MPO.  If he wants to play Am - then he plays AM and is only entitled to funny money and not actual hard currency.  Just my opinion, you're the TD.

Wait, you can accumulate points at these.  tour points at leagues...  wtf?  Maybe this has the potential of going somewhere useful, but I doubt the PDGA has the right (read best for the players) future in mind.


Ok, on both of these, Tracy, yes you get points, and that was the reason it made sense to give out $.50/person in my mind.  I see that as enough of a warrant to charge the extra $1 that we must do at this league.  Also that money is going straight into the tree fund that Drew set up, so I liked adding to it directly, and still giving to the club.  This also does give some distinction at leagues in town, and it is essentially like a "C" tier weekly....my logic, WTF, why not give it a shot.

Rob, as to only paying people open that play open at league.  The goal of this was never to eliminate people from playing league at the level they want.  In most cases I am an amateur player that plays open at leagues and has since my 2nd year in town of being talked into going that direction.  I don't think that it is fair that I pay for a PDGA fee and then not accumulate the points based on the areas that I need to have them for the following year invites to worlds. (Which is all that points are worth, UNLESS you are going after the points total award....in which case these leagues may help, but bigger A-Tiers, etc will dwarf that even finishing middle of the pack).  So the logical step for me is to think about moving people to their "assigned" divisions that they want points in.

I understand the logic that you are saying, but to me as the TD, and as an advocate for people to push themselves in leagues more than they would in Tournament Sanction play, it makes sense.  Just like any Rec/Int, their points mean nothing, there isn't an INT world's, so playing in divisions that don't accumulate makes nothing happen.

Does that make sense Rob?


Adam, I believe I fixed it and added your name in there accordingly.  Thanks for catching that, sorry about missing it!

Makes sense, just giving my 2 cents.

I wonder if the FAQ League Questions are out-dated from 2012?

This link:

http://www.pdga.com/documents/divisions-ratings-points-factors

is effective 1/1/13 and it lists League points has being half of C-tier points and that they are accumulated on a weekly basis.

Who knows, that information changes all the time.  So it may only be 1/2 points of a C-Tier, but you are still getting the points regardless....which goes back to the argument, the points should remain with the person in the division that they want points.

I think that last year Ed Gonzales missed getting an invite by 5 points.....if he chose to play Master instead of Grand Master at leagues, he wouldn't get the points assigned appropriately.  So I want to be cognizant of our relationship to points, but remain true to the league as you wish to chose it.

As it appears to me now, it is looking like it is going to be requiring me to complete 3 different spreadsheets to make this work accordingly.

Such fun!

3-spreadsheets...
1-the PDGA Master sheet (because you can't input the information from the Spreadsheet that I keep already for the league)-I mean that would make to much sense yes?  Lets make people keep another sheet, because on this sheet provided by the PDGA, you have to manually enter everything, you can't cut and paste it into the sheet they demand you use.

Glad I caught that in week 2, I would have been screaming in week 10.

2-My own league sheet, where I track the scores, and winning amounts for the league to have year end stats for the league.

3-The Club sheet so that I can track the # of people not members, not opting in for ace funds, etc....

I could eliminate #3, but I don't want to add columns on my spreadsheet for each week on who did what....


The points thing at the end of it...geesh what a freaking nightmare that is going to be.  The person that plays the most gets the most points?  Well if that is the case, then start now and get those points moving along, and don't miss the weeks!
