      If you read what you just posted again, you'll realize why using average ratings is more, not less fair. The fact that one throw is worth more ratings points on lower SSA courses than on higher SSA courses does actually mean a player who beats another player by one throw on the easier course played better than a player who beat someone by one throw on a higher SSA course.

      Example: In the first round, Player A shoots 45 on a low SSA course and Player B shoots 50. Then in round 2 on a higher SSA course, Player A shoots 65 and player B shoots 60. They've both shot 110 and are tied on score. The reality is that Player A shot a little better overall and that will be reflected in their round ratings.

        I wouldn't mind going to USDGC...!!

        My vote would be for Dion to go since I probably can't...

          I don't see that it matter whether you use scores or round ratings. The same criteria applies to everyone, right? Everyone would have the opportunity to play the same three events, right?

            My suggestion would be to use total score as Magilla proposed and only use average round ratings in the event the players are tied and use it as the tiebreaker. Even with slight differences in round ratings between courses, a player who beats another player by one throw over three events will still have a better round rating average. It's only when their total scores are tied that ratings will make a difference unless they tied every round in all three events.

                DOH! Where have you been?

                We had always intended to play HooDoo as well as Sisters this year BUT decided to go to HooDoo exclusively with its inclusion in the "King of the Mountain"

                We feel that the 2 are just 2 far apart to have both....Camping and Tourney Central would have been at HooDoo anyway.

                There WILL be events at Hyzer Pines...

                  I don't have a way to even consider qualifying without traveling back down south!!! I am probably going just to go!!

                        Jeff, you need to read your old PDGA magazines. I remember reading one which talked about these bad@$$es playing in the worst of weather. Can you imagine playing an Ice Bowl in Fairbanks, Alaska? The thought makes me want to cry a little...
                        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

                          Yeah, I know. I'm just tossing him some crap. I know another disc golfer from Alaska, and he surprised me when he mentioned they really do have a "scene" up there. It's just a cold one

                            LOL!!!!! It was promised to someone this year... The new AK Coordinator will be giving it out based on AK State Championships from now on though!!

                            So we are just a little more hardcore up here!! You really have to be afraid of your plastic when the temp is -10 with a windchill of -35 There are only about 6 of us in town who play during the winter. You will see others out occasionally, but not very often!!!!

                              Wow! I don't like to golf under 42 degrees (including windchill). What type of winter gear do you guys wear?

                                Under 42!!! I would only be golfing for 2 months a year I wear 400 weight insulated boots, expedition weight long john bottoms, Gore-Tex Snowboard pants, Heavy weight compressions shirt, heavy weight Fleece, gloves and a beannie. That does me fine till about 5 degrees. Then I have to add another midweight fleece. If it is windy ( above 30 MPH or so ) I add a softsheel or Gore-Tex hardshell to cut the wind!! Doesn't that sound like fun to play in
