Thanks always for your input as I value your experience and knowledge about a lot of disc golf topics.
I realize that these are 'averages' but I think that the lost shot numbers would accelerate quite a bit in the 45-60 range.
I'm curious as to what the average rating for masters players would be?
Then you could estimate what your rating would be after these 10 point drops.
