Smart money's riding on Paul to take the tournament :-)

I have the spreadsheet worked out differently... for any player, every total 5% improvement is -1. So if paul scored in the 16th percentiles, he would get -1, while eyewave would have to score in the 86th percentile for -1.

But.... when Paul wins a challenge, earns the 100th percentile, he will score -18.

For anyone who would like to know how I am calculating the scores in more specifics, here is what I have put into the spreadsheet.

Scores for each round
(Percentile finish in that round)-(Handicap)/5
Displayed with 1 decimal place.

Overall Score
Sum of all scores for each round.
Displayed as a whole number.

Sample:
VitaminB - Handicap 74.2
Round 1: 65th percentile
Round 1 Score: +1.8
Overall Score: +2

Round 2: 93rd percentile
Round 2 Score: -3.8
Overall Score: -2

Thanks for the explanation and for doing all of this ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' VitaminB.

Gee! This is fun.. and all so 'golfy'! Makes me want to run out and buy some clubs...

This is all fine and dandy, but who's driving the cart? My fat, old a**terisk doesn't feel like walking (that far from the beer, lol!) :P

I don't understand. 10% of 11.3 is 1.13. 11.3 + 1.13 = 12.43. I was rounding up to whole numbers, but even so it looks like a move to 13th percentile would be worth -2. Now, where I *did* goof was calling it "plus 2", should have been "minus 2"...

I am treating the percentiles a bit differently. For anyone to score -1, they must improve on their handicap by a whole 5%, not 5% of the handicap.

So, using ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', '/') + 1) . ' GeneralE as an example, if he scores in the 16th percentile, it will be a 5% (roughly) difference from their handicap, resulting in a -1 score.

For dougi555, with a handicap of 84.8, he would need to score in the 90th percentile for a 5% difference from his handicap to get the -1 score.

Thanks!

BTW, you are going to need a BIG calculator...

You have 13 spaces left? You can add my name to the list. That means I have to have an open entry (Lines or Veggie Tales) for next Tuesday, right? I'll let you worry about the math and just try and do my best. :-)

No the tournament starts with the open challenges announced on September 8th.

How is rounding working on determining if the 5% as been met?

Will you round up? 2.5% better counts
or
Simply if greater than the next 5%? so 5%+ is the first -1, then 10%+ is -2

Sounds like fun. Pencil me in if there is a slot left. Tks

Ok, don't shoot the dumb chick.....is it good or bad to start with a somewhat lower handicap, lol. I'm letting you do the figuring, so just curious as to whether or not a -40 something is good or bad?
Ignore me....lol.

The way I have it worked out is that each round will be a a decimal score, so you can get 0.6 for your score. The overall score will round it to the nearest whole number.

So, if your handicap is 50%, and you finish in the 53rd percentile, your first round score will be -0.6, and your overall will be rounded to -1.

count me in if there is room, please :)
