  • Is a Round of 27 holes weighted more when factoring ratings?

    Question for Chuck Kennedy.
    I read somewhere recently that a round of greater than 18 holes (say 27 holes) would be weighted more than a regular 18 hole layout when averaging round ratings to get a players rating. Is this true?
    Does that apply to any round greater than 18 holes? say 21?

    I thought the only thing that deviated from a straight average was recent 25% of rounds were double weighted.

    Yes they are weighted. I do not know if it is a blanket application. (example below) But, I do remember reading that 27 hole layouts were multiplied by 1.5.

    19 holes = Rating X 1.055
    20 holes = Rating X 1.11
    21 holes = Rating X 1.165 and so on

      Yes, the number of holes on the course is used to weight the ratings. What many may not realize is your round ratings are in the PDGA database on a "per hole" basis. So they have to be multiplied by the number of holes in each round when determining your current overall rating.

        Thanks to both of you for the answer. I am a numbers geek and I always wondered why my calculations were off slightly from the PDGA...
