I have been playing with the data Jordan provided earlier in this thread. It looks to me like we may want to consider a progressive system in weighting ratings. By progressive I mean increasing the weight of a players existing rating each time they play a round:
((PDGA Rating X 4) + Round 1 Rating) / 5 = New Rating
((New Rating X 5) + Round 2 Rating) / 6 = Newer Rating
((Newer Rating X 6) + Round 3 Rating) / 7 = Newest Rating
This will take a little extra work in tracking, but I would be willing to help out.
Yo Jordan.....I will get you a copy of my Excel sheet later today.
