      JORDAN, Is there really no way around the 1000 rating start for new players? It just seems so darn punitive to players new to TDG. And really, really punitive to the teams that they join. Week one, and perhaps beyond, are nothing more than prelim matches for those players, and basic forfeits for their team. No, I do not know an easy solution- other than allowing for a prelim round for players with no ratings. At worst, one could calculate their first singles rounds immediately so they have a realistic rating on their second round first day. That may provide some teams with half a chance to not give away the entire day. Other than a prelim for newbies, which seems fair, I am unable to introduce an idea that makes this issue easy to resolve for you and those assisting you. I just feel not finding a fix is unfair. I may be mistaken, but with all the new teams forming on Saturday and changes to Sunday's teams, I don't think we are talking about this in relation to any one team. George, Bets off until I know which week we play you. No point making a wager if we will be forced to eat a loss. (Sorry for the look of this post, but it's the fault of this site- use the "enter" key and nearly anything can happen.)

        I know we don't have time to do mid-match ratings calculations, so that is out.

        We (all team golfers) are open to suggestions on how to solve this problem. Many ideas have been tossed about but no silver bullet.
        BTW, the 1000 rating is only for the first match. After that your rating is based on played rounds; the 1000 is NOT part of your average.
        So yes, the first match is basically is a sure lost point (or two).

        How about DGCR ratings, along with a reliable witness not on the same team?

        I have a new player on my team that will also start with a TDG rating of 1000 for his first match. And as captain I am resigned to the fact that he will probably be losing his first singles match unless he plays against another player with a 1000 for a starting rating. Maybe we'll get lucky and we'll play your team the first week!
