Those guys just straight slaughtered everybody. They were playing near perfect golf! Shouldn't a near perfect round= a crazy high rating?

FWIW, they extended hole 8 to a par 4 at Fountain. Put the basket out on the Peninsula. Tough hole.

They must have found one the last few days it seemed to get better as the weekend went on at least from a camera perspective. Crazy John is well crazy, I guess with a good buzz it was pretty funny.

You can see it at Winthrop if you look closely compared with other gold level courses. But higher SSA courses naturally narrow the ratings distributions to offset the open course, narrow fairways, lots of OB and extra long par 3 effect at the Memorial so it's more difficult to see.


The best example I can give is take 12 and 17 at Ewing. Both are par 4s (at least for the guys putting up 1100 rounds). Let's say the 2 guys that shoot 1100 rounds 3 both of them. Most of the field is going to 3 or 4 hole 17, however there's gonna be all kind of numbers put up on 12. Now make an entire course where the top guys are getting 2s and 3s and the rest of the field is taking 4s, 5s, and 6s and there's gonna be huge spread in the total scores. So the only way to make these rounds fall under 1100 is to make your 1020 round fall under 1000!?! Then you all would be complaining the other way.

I think the biggest lack of consistency in the ratings is the huge lack of consistency in the courses. I just don't think people understand how huge that variable is.

And also Dana is right, those rounds really are that good.

Yeah, Steve Rico's numbers show it. He really shot good all week, and still ended up wayyyyy out. Perfect golf is possible, look at how they redesigned the masters because of tiger..
