        What happens if in a division there are 10 players tied for 7th place? How do you place them in order on the scoreboard? If you do it by last name alphabetical order then that means Dan Zents and David Zimmerman are always in last place amongst the players they are tied with. This means they are playing 3 cards below Denny Axmacher.

        I asked Dave Feldberg about this to see what he would say and he said in that instance, the order of the players that are tied should always be a random shuffle of the players that are tied. If you do alphabetical order or pdga number then the same players get punished every event for having their last name begin with a Z.

        Is there an official PDGA guideline for this? Anybody know?
        After the first round, I usually go to by Alphabetical order, but another option is to sort by PDGA #. After 2nd or third round, I go by the best most recent round then PDGA #.

        • If you are tied for 9th I think there are bigger things to think of then where your card is placed.

          You stated it perfectly that this sport involves a major mental game and part of maturing your game is to get past mental hurdles like being on a lower card. There are several books and studies relating to mental game and almost all of them talk about playing the best you can no matter what card and not playing against the other players on your card. If you beat one person on the top of your card and just try to play to beat them while two cards back a player beats all of you because they set their sights higher it becomes a pretty brutal lesson.

          None the less if you have issue with how this TD setup the cards the best way to bring this up is a discussion directly with them off the boards. The discretion used by TD's is theirs and as long as it is uniform I can only say you need to suck it up and choose a different tournament if you can't handle it.

              The hotter players gets rewarded somewhat.
              that doesn't work for the 2nd round

              Hath this whole world been mired in madness?
              Remain ye men of faculty complete,
              Of full arithmetic and prudence fair,
              Attending to our noble bond and contract?
              Or does here stand the last remaining man
              To give a fig for rules and order yet,
              No noble savage, but a stave unbroken
              Who loves the law and bids it no misdeed.
              Iíll not be bent to lawlessness. Mark it nought, if we be men of honour.

                Pretty sure that this is the standard used by most TDs. I know that this is what I have always done, as well.
                ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē
