Frequently Asked Questions - Ratings
I pre-registered for an event and my updated rating is now too high for the division I entered. Now what?
Why are the ratings for the same score thrown on the same course layout not the same either in different rounds or different weeks with the same weather conditions?
Is it true that players earn better ratings for the same score when a bunch of top, higher rated players compete in the event?
Does tougher weather in one shotgun round provide higher ratings for the same score shot on the same layout during calmer conditions in the other round on the same day?
When weather changes significantly during a full day of tee time rounds on the same course, will official ratings account for different weather between early and late rounds?
Is it true that players might earn better ratings when playing the same course in a Tournament versus League play?
What happens to my rating if I do not complete a round or start the next round without telling the TD?
What happens if a player in my group appears to be trying to play poorly to lower their rating for that round?
Don't players lose the benefit of higher ratings when all of the propagators shoot well in a round, thus depressing the course rating for that round?
Why does the PDGA calculate ratings based on the scores propagators shoot versus using a fixed course rating like ball golf?
