I agree with the Idiot on this one, and did spend some time fixing the table - it's just been a bit busy recently to put much time into the site. I'll get on it eventually, I did the spreadsheet update within minutes of Rob posting his comment….

As for the comment from Ron about the rest of the tables favouring people who participate in more events, well, DUH, isn't that how a tour works?! Much as I'd like to be able to track driving distances, putts per round and all the other stuff that would have Ron as #1, I can't!

Having reviewed the scores from the season it appears to me that the 'Standard Deviant' system is a complete load of bollocks. For those that do not understand read the following:

In order to promote attendance at events, a handicap increase mechanic is to be trialled in order to prevent regular members being continually penalised for competing.

Handicap increases of 0.2 for a Minor and 0.4 for a Major will be given to those competitors whose stapleforth points for that tournament are below 1 standard deviation from the mean – This calculation will be performed by the Prof, probably not in his head.

My Views/Questions are:
- Has the handicap increase mechanic trial finished now - When will it be labelled as a failure as that is clearly what it is…
- Can we agree a new system - i have a great idea on this, lets use the system that every golf club in UK use!!
- The standard deviant means that basically from this seasons results you would only go up if you scored about 21 points (as i understand it). This means that you could shoot around of 14 over nett and no go up!
- The standard deviant system has only changed 3 exact handicaps all year - Pres/Prof/TD, but has not affected their
actual playing handicaps - Therefore it has actually done nothing.
- Example - Pres has scored an average of 18.8 points in the 5 tournaments he has played in this season and is still off the same
- Example - Ron has never played to 0 since being cut to 0 two years ago and still remains at 0

It's time for a review - lets kick out the sub standard deviant

Cheers Ron

yes i agree idiot. In actual fact most of the tables are in favour of those who play more events.

should this be a 'blob per hole/round' average score - as opposed to the cumulative number. Strikes me (and it pains me to say this beyond belief) as a little unfair to penalise those who are regular attenders and will therefore undoubtedly score more 'blobs'…or not…whatever.

Anyone fancy going to see A Camp at the Glee Club on 28 April. A Camp is Nina from The Cardigans and some of her pals. Very folky and chilled and Nina is "smoking hot".

Spinal Tap are also playing Wembley Arena on 30 June. We could all be "Working on a Sex Farm"…top notch.

Would it have made any difference whatsoever - as the course was in worse condition than Tudor Grange Pitch and 'Pot' circa 1985? The breakfast was very nice though…

Re: 2009 Gibbon by robhallrobhall, 28 Mar 2009 21:51

Is Rob more well known for his idiocy, his slanty eyes or pestering horses? Or have I missed something? Please discuss.

You definitely need shoes for this course, which is confirmed as in Dudloy

Will who 'be anal'? I'm now 'curious' too…

Re: 2009 Gibbon by robhallrobhall, 24 Mar 2009 16:21

I've had half an hour on the driving range in the last 18 months. That said, it was quite recent, so I've stepped up my preparations!

Also, I haven't got any gofe shoes. Will they be anal on the course and not let me play?

Re: 2009 Gibbon by Spike HatchettSpike Hatchett, 24 Mar 2009 15:21

Oh yeah - good point. I'll re-post it over there.
