Said it had to be like 2 or 3 strokes different before getting a different calculation for ratings and it was just shy of 2 if I'm correct. I fought the good fight trying to get a different calculation but in the end it made enough sense...
The rain during the 3rd round was steady but it wasn't enough to really change the outcome overall much...
Thanks for the info Snap.
I brought it up on the principal of the system.
Actual numbers: MA1 avg east course Saturday (sunshine) 68.95, Sunday (rain) 70.25. Surprisingly the other pool was much closer Saturday (sunshine) 76.68, Sunday (rain) 77.04
Only players who completed all rounds used in calculations.
On average I'll bet players will play either course closer to 2 strokes worse in steady rain versus sunshine. My two cents
