    It only affected one of 10 matches. I think you got it right!
    I really wish I could have been a fly on the wall when the RRs found out they had lost!

    I have to agree with this comment!

      Happy belated Birthday to Zach, who turned 22 Sunday.
      I liked playing with the tired, drunkish Zach.
      He was definitely entertaining.
      DrunkISH?! Dude was slammered... Great entertainment, between all the whining, at least

        This is why I've been thinking about changing the rule for next year...

        what rule?

          So would you leave the SSA undetermined until later to help the underdog or to help the favored team? I like the idea of having all the cards on the table to determine the winner before you leave. The only grey area now lands with ties and counting total strokes for the victor. I can deal with that since it is so rare: Like twice in one season for us so far

            • GBP was so concerned about one card in the afternoon that they forgot about winning the other two cards. Great day and good win for OE&S.
              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

                    So does that mean Saturday would have a different RP/S than Sundays teams???

                      I double checked this match and the only error was a mistype by yours truly on the Big Winds afternoon dubs back nine. They shot a 30 and I had entered a 20 with my damn sausage fingers. Your match was 63-66 and your ratings were exactly 24 points apart for the 3 stroke handicap. But this resulted in a tie in match strokes. Darkhorse won the total strokes tiebreaker 617-621, while Big Winds played all 7 players for the overall tie for the match.

                      There was a double screw up on the Ace or Die Vs Dancing Cows match sheet. First, my crack team of stat demons swapped the two team's scores for just the afternoon dubs. And then because that wasn't enough of a screw up, I read the score from the S9 singles match and gave the AoD dubs team a 63 for the round. But after the DC were given the 57 they really shot and the AoD team the 59 they shot the match results didn't change. This match was also tied on match points and the Cows won the total strokes tiebreaker 621-626 for the 6-5 victory.

                      The third match that was tied on match points was Rockwood Vs Discrupters. The Rupters won the total strokes tiebreaker 798-812 and both teams got the 7 player point for a 7.5-6.5 victory.

                        Potentially, it means that each of the 4 rounds could have different RP/S depending on the final SSA of each round played. Say, if the morning or afternoon had significantly better or worse weather, it could make the SSA go into a different RP/S range than in previous rounds shot at that course.

                        Personally, picking the SSA for the rounds we are going to play tends to be one of the more stressful parts of running OTDG. One of the reasons I'd like to implement this change next year is to relieve me of this burden for each event. Then it could blow like crazy at a particular event and I'd know that the handicap we were playing would reflect the difficulty of the course and conditions.

                        In this last week's event only the Sunday RP/S would have gone up to 9 while the Saturday RP/S would stay at 8. And of the 5 Sunday matches only the one would actually swap the winners.

                          This is not entirely the case. This is gonna get confusing so I'll do my best to explain what really happened and how I screwed DH out of their victory this week.

                          You might remember that we played at Timber the last event. And there were some slight scoring irregularities...
                          Originally posted by Sausage Fingers View Post
                          Due to another mistype even though I used the awesome new 10-key provided to me, I somehow still made a stupid keying error in Jevon's match.
                          Well giving Jevon a score that was 10 strokes better than he really shot also had an effect on the SSA for the Sunday PM round. But after fixing the scores in the spreadsheet, I neglected to re-upload the corrected files.

                          Let me restate that for effect: I neglected to re-upload the corrected files.

                          Now you may ask yourself, what could that possibly matter to anybody? When Captain extraordinaire Kel Carver went to get his team ratings for Week 7, the Master Ratings file showed Rob Smith with a rating of 946.371229. Well, after the Sunday PM round ratings changed with Jevon's real score, it changed Rob's rating that round from 959 to 961. That changed his week 7 rating to 946.571229 and with the rounding moved his rating that crucial 1 point upwards. So when Kel matched Rob (947) up against John (923) he thought that Rob only needed to give John 2 strokes in that match. But that extra .2 in the rounded rating was all that was needed to force the win into a tie.

                          And not only did it put the singles match into a tie, it ultimately resulted in the entire match being a tie. Shattering the hopes and dreams of a Darkhorse repeat.

                          I am rapidly approaching my self imposed internet ban so I will leave you with this post to rant and rave about and I'll be back sometime on Thursday to read your opinions.

                              • You can't take the heat for this one Hiatt.

                                Based on the information provided in advance of the match we WON! There's no doubt that Big Winds felt we came back and beat them during the second round on Sunday. So in my book we can still add one to the win column.

                                This experience coincidentally mirrors what a post-round strokes/rating scenario (as previously suggested for next season) would look like. From my experience, the idea of not knowing the actual gap until after the match . . . sucks ass.
