For those of you that are interested in the optional PDGA rating aspect of this league, I thought I would give you some details:
- the cost is $1 per week
- you can decide to participate on a week-to-week basis. If you aren't feeling up to snuff on any particular week, you can simply opt out before the round. Once you have committed to participate, however, there is no backing out...your score will be turned in to the PDGA for rating assessment.
- the PDGA calculates your rating based on the play of all of the other scores turned in that week, previous scores from previous weeks, course conditions, weather conditions, and some other variables. If you want to get a better idea of how it all works, check out the PDGA website...http://www.pdga.com/ratings
- each PDGA league round recorded is equivalent to 1 round played in a C-Tier level PDGA event. This means that the league rounds can affect your overall PDGA rating a significant amount. If you only have a few PDGA rated rounds under your belt to begin with, the league rounds can carry a lot of weight. The league can be great way to build up your PDGA resume!
- once you have decided to play for a PDGA rating, ALL PDGA RULES APPLY! This obviously should be the case no matter what, but it is extra important that you make sure you are following the PDGA rules 100% if you are playing for a rating. I expect everyone to keep a close eye on foot faults, falling putts, etc.
