1000 Rated Player? 's

Postby daniebl2 » Sun Oct 15, 2006 8:24 am

What is a 1000 rated player?
And how do determine what they would shoot on any given course?

I'm thinking of starting to play some tourneys next year and wanted to know how I stacked up.

I had my best round @ Jerico Park, IL with a -13 round and was trying to fiqure out what that might translate too!

Thanks all who reply

-13 is great, but if it's a pitch and putt course dont expect your rating to be based off that course and the scores you get on it. Search online for SSA of a course you play at frequently, SSA=average score for a 1000 rated player, but during tournies weather conditions are factored in too to ajust player rating.

a 1000 rated player = ball golf equivalent to a "scratch golfer" (aka handicap 0).

a 1000 rated player will average "par" on a known difficulty disc golf course.

for example, if the SSA/WCP is 54, throwing even par = 1000 rated. however, about 90% of courses are well below SSA 54. an SSA 48 course will have 48 = 1000 rated, but a 54 will likely be around 930. an SSA 63 course will have 63 = 1000 rated, but a 54 will be around 1070.

strokes on an easier course are worth MORE ratings points than strokes on a harder course.

an 18 hole course with 18 225' wide open holes with no elevation change or rough will likely play (on a calm day) as around an SSA 40, aka 14 under = 1000 rated.

I've played Jericho this year in a tournament. Was the -13 from the shorts (excrutiatingly short - threw my putter off of 13/18 tees) or the longs (only modestly longer than the shorts, but does add difficulty)? 1000 on the longs for the tournament was 8 under for 22 holes (4 temps installed). 1000 on the shorts was -12, but it was windy as heck there that day. On a calm day, I'd say 14 or 15 down would be 1000 rated golf. -13 is a great score no matter the tees and you'd do very well in a tournament there with that score.

pitch and putt genereally refers to a course where all the holes are easly reached and very 2able.

pitch & putt = all holes can be reached with a drive yielding a birdie putt, generally with very few obstacles.

let's say a course is in a wide open park and is 18 holes of straight shots, 50' wide fairways, only a handful of trees, and hole lengths ranging from 150' to 275'. that would be pitch & putt.

a non-pitch & putt course would have 18 holes of mixed woods, open, and semi-restricted lines with lengths ranging from 150' to 1000' where holes are more challenging and may involve 1 or more shots before putting and/or significant trouble if you miss the fairway.
