Just wanted to let everybody know that Dad (Ron Byrd) was in an accident this afternoon passing thru Oil City on the way back to New Mexico. Car was hit by oncoming truck on two lane bridge....tore entire driver's side off. He broke two cervical vertebrae, but is in pretty good condition. Doctor said that if he weren't in such good condition he would have probably been killed. I don't know any 80 year old men that could make it through something like that.....don't know any that could spank Marvin McVay like that, either.

He's in good spirits, though....told me to tell Marvin that beating him was so hard that it put him in traction.

He'll be out of the disc golf business for a while, also. That is the toughest thing on him right now.

Doc has released him to fly back to New Mexico.

PM me Ron's home address so I can send a card, please. Ron is a really fine player and I enjoyed playing with him.

Let's not get too carried away on Marvin finishing second. That was my sixth tournament with Marvin, and it was just not a good outing for him, which is not to take anything away from Ron playing well and making up two shots on the second round. I would pay money to see Ron and Marvin on a day when both are at their best. Two great guys and DG'ers.

Best wishes on a speedy recovery to Ron...

Thanks for fixing up the file on your end Warlord, I have cleaned up the event's SN Ratings page:

Why are my ratings different on Bluff's than they are on Alan's?

Nick when I looked at the numbers, the pDGA had the 2nd round rating on the same tees about 16 points below the first round. That was due to the limited number of players playing that set of tees the 2nd round. So I adjusted the ratings for the SN to make the SN Ratings more accurate.

So the southern nationals ratings and the pdga ratings dont match?
when i average to 2 PDGA ratings from both rounds I get a 907, but with the SN ratings I get 914

No the SN and pDGA ratings don't always match. Most of the time, the SN Ratings will match the pDGA, but not always. If there is a statistical anomaly that can be identified, then the SN will calculate a different set of numbers and use those.

There isn't really must difference between 914 and 907. It's less than 2/10 of 1%.
