These top three rounds are each in different course SSA categories with Climo in the under 48 SSA range, Skinner in the 48-54 and Feldberg in the 54-60 range. Barry has the only 1100 on the nose in the 60-66 SSA range and no one has come close yet in the SSA 66+ range with Anthon on top at "only" 1088.
    Chuck,

    The SSA seems reasonable given the recent course changes but something seems off with the scores across the entire Pro field. Do you think the wind changed significantly throughout the day? It seems this first round has caused many people to miss their ratings mark. Less than 30% of each field shot within 10 points of their rating. Could this be winter time shake off?

    For the overall (current ratings - rd1 ratings) the overall was a negative 364 points, with positive increases in MPO & FPO and decreases in MPM & MPG.

      Remember that if a player shoots more than 60 points below their rating, they don't get included as propagators. Several potential props shoot more than 60 points lower due to the OB on that course. So what happens once their scores are excluded from the SSA calculation is the SSA goes lower which means their ratings end up even lower. That makes those 1100 rounds even tougher to reach.

      When we've done studies comparing older Pros to younger Pros of the same rating, they average the same rating on resonably balanced courses. However, as you might expect, younger players of the same rating shoot better than the older players on mostly open courses with longer holes like at the Memorial. Older players shoot better on wooded courses than the youngsters. The effect isn't huge (2 shots over 18 holes) but enough to see when you look at cumulative ratings like your neg 364 calculation.

          Interesting that Pro Grandmasters looks like a much tougher field than Pro Masters at the top of the division. Maybe it's time for the legendary 40+ open players to hobble into masters...

              McBeth was one shot from 1100 again today and he made two mistakes that cost him that record. He bogeyed another hole when he probably birdies or pars it 95% of the time, similar to hole 13 yesterday. He has yet to even break into the 90's yet in his total score. Can you believe this score?!?!?!?!?!?

              His level of competition is militant. He does not even require the time to compose/focus himself before or after distractions that his competitors do. He putts fast with no restraint and makes what appears to be 90% of his putts within 40 feet but rarely leaves himself outside 22 feet. He is like a machine with a calm cool demeanor. He shakes adversity off and seems to be able to forget mistakes on the next throw.

              Needless to say two other players are hanging tough with him at the top but unless they can get McBeth to crack this might require two 1100+ rounds by either of these individuals in the last two rounds to wrestle this one away. Looks like a 3 horse race going into round 3!

              Hey though rating for rating Greg Schwartz and Clayton Adams are killing it as well. Did anyone pick these guys on their fantasy leagues? Wouldn't that have been a nice sleeper prediction.

              Chuck do you keep a tournament Round rating record by course SSA?

                  The wind today is awesome, anyone catch some of the live feed for the ladies? The wind was kicking discs around like Styrofoam cups. Hole 12 was hard to watch.

                  It has also slowed Paul McBeth up significantly and Devan Owens &Will Schusterick have been gaining significant ground on Paul. Dave feldberg is falling off the pace and is currently over par for the round. Curious to see if Will S. has the hot round for round three. He is looking like a 1070 rated round if he finishes out strong.

                    Curious if anyone from the second card is making a charge. Not sure if they'll reach the top though - it looks like a two-man race between McBeth and Will.

                      oh my - a bird for Mcbeth and double bogey for Will on 17. Five shot lead for Will.

                        Avery Jenkins with the Hot round of 49 in the wind. Man that rates a 1095 smoking hot and a good jump for him to the second card. The battle tomorrow looks like it will be familiar territory for the lead card!

                        Ken Climo shoot a 51 to climb back into the top 10 as well. If it is windy tomorrow, and it looks like it may be, then you will not want to miss the live coverage. 6 strokes seems like a lot but not in the wind at Fountains.

                          Not specifically by course but here's our "best ever" round record thru 2010: http://www.pdga.com/player-ratings-s...nges-men-women
                          You can see Vista shows up a fair amount. What's interesting is that Vista will show up in two categories with records after this event because the SSA was around 58 on Wednesday and was around 62 today with Avery adding another round in the top 10. Val also enters the women's top 10 list today which is likely the first time brother and sister registered rounds rated in the top 10 the same day.

                            OMG two more 1100+ rounds on the same card. Feldberg 1112 & Will 1103. If these ratings become official that's 4 1100+ rounds in the same event, and one player has two of them.

                            Wow! Just wow!

                              Jim Oates who destroyed the Grandmasters with a 209 - 23...... he had rounds of 1032,1054,1050,1020 and he would have tied for 10th in Open with Nikko and Cale and still he would have won Masters by 11 strokes.

                              Top 4 in GM this year would have finished in the Top 25 of Open or Won the Masters Div....

                                I wonder is those early morning tee times helped with the wind on Friday & Saturday? Jim Oates is a solid player and can always compete in Masters but it looks like it was in his best interest to compete in Grand Masters at this event.
