For amusement I have come up with a statistical rating, which I have called the Hartshorne-Robins ratio

Hartshorne-Robins Ratio = [(brown round – golden round)*3/ average round score]
For a 3 round tournament, I think you would need to add a constant of say 0.1, but no adjustment for this 4 round tournament.
For me (75-57)*3/65.75 which is 0.82
For Bruce (82-59)*3/68.75 which is 1.00
For Neal Pickett (89-65)*3/76.5 = 0.94
For Mavis (91-62)*3/77 -0.25 which is 1.13

A Hartshorne-Robins ratio of 1 or more suggests that you are tending towards the inconsistency associated with Duncan Hartshorne. It appears that Mark Davis took over Dunc's mantle for this tournament.

Warning: Statistics go up and down and may prove diddley squat. You do not have to play disc golf, but if you do, your performance may be used against you for piss-taking purposes.

Fantastic! I'm more consistent than Bruce!

Need to stop being consistently crap though... Bring on QP!

(96-69)*3/81.25=1.00 to 2dp

Do I win a prize?

Also by this measure I'm as good as Bruce :shock: thought that would take at least one more season :D

bruce wrote: Something not quite right with this. The high/low hole scores are correct, but the totals at the end appear to simply be the player's best and worst rounds. So for me the Golden round is a 59 and the Brown is an 82 :shock:
I had an inkling something wasn't right. it might take me a while to get round to fixing it - i did the gold/brown in a rush.

I did a quick fix on the Gold/Brown rounds - quick and dirty and it creates more rows per player, but you can at least see the real values.

(Jester - I'm afraid it's even worse for your brown round. but at least everyone's brown round is worse).

medium term i want to get this in a chart, and try and incorporate something like del's coefficient. If we could apply it to other events, it would be really powerful!
