It's the most exciting hole for Larod because Im not sure he's ever finished outside of 4 ft on this one. He probably throws the best spike hyzer I've ever seen on it and I still bring it up once in a while when I play that hole in the shorts. What disc did you throw on it by the way?

You askin' me? Probably Viper. Maybe Whippet. Then X-Clone. Then XTRA, though I'm not sure I made that switch before leaving.

I'd hate to guess how many I threw at that hole over the years. I think I aced it all of once. But damn was it exciting.

I was thinking Viper for some reason.

I've almost aced 13 (probably 100+times) and I've never hit metal there. :?

Thats because you throw spike hyzer everytime....if you just threw a roc or putter straight at it, youd probably have 10 of them by now! :lol: :lol:

I would skip playing just to watch Brett caddy for Sprague. Throw Hosfeld on the card and I'd probably be able to make a sitcom out of one round.

On second thought, tomahawk everything.

I see that the ratings wizards decided to group Rounds 1-3 together for ratings purposes, and separate out Round 4.

Rounds 1-3 = 68.34
Round 4 = 67.02

Questions:
1) What were the separate SSAs for rounds 1-3?

2) Why were they grouped together?
a) They had the same players?
b) Conditions were similar?
c) The separate SSAs were similar?

3) Why did Round 4 play "easier"?
a) Conditions were better?
b) The players figured it out by day 4?
c) Everybody had a good day?
d) The worse players had been cut, and on this course, high-rating players play better RELATIVE TO THEIR RATING than low-rating players.

4) Using only the players that made the cut, what were the separate round SSAs for rounds 1-3?

5) Hypothetically:
- Player A shoots 55 on a 69.7 SSA
- Player B shoots 53 on a 67.0 SSA

- Player A beat the SSA by 14.7 on the harder course
- Player B beat the SSA by 14.0 on the easier course

- Player B shot 2 strokes better on a course that was almost 3 strokes easier

- Which round was better?

6) What is the moral of this story?

A little knowledge of statistics is a dangerous thing. I think they need to ask Nate Silver for some guidance. Or anyone who took a stat course in college and stayed awake. Not that I know anything, but they should be able to justify their actions.
