    Default Power Players - August 2010

    AUGUST RANKINGS!!!

    There’s a little something extra this month… yes, that’s right, career stats! (I did this for you p1um!) I’m not a big fan of the career stats, since there are a lot of restarts and 2nd accounts that muddle up the results, not to mention various learning curves, demotions, etc. Some people choose to tour right out of the g0 gate and others wait until they feel the can handle the competition... but maybe that’s just my own bias since I drastically fall down the list on that one and find it nearly impossible to change one's positioning… not sure. Anyway, I have included everyone that I have stats for and added them to the career results. They are organized the same as the monthly rankings, the overall ranking coming from the average pts/game number. For the few people that have ylod or had ps3 issues of some kind that I have their previous stats for before their ps3 crashed, I have combined the previous numbers with the current numbers to give a better “career” figure.

    Well, I’d really like to hear feedback if the career stats is something you want and would like to see more often. Since those numbers are more static, a monthly update seems like too much work (on my end) for such a small changes, but if this is something you would like to see every few months, or you don’t care, or whatever, please let me know. Thanks.

    If you would like to be added to the list to receive the rankings in picture form, please send me a message saying you would like to be added to the list and I’ll send the picture to your PS3. Thanks.

    Level 20s that are not included on the rankings for various reasons... retired, haven't seen them in ages or were not able to get their stats:

    A-O-Dawaitsu*, aeris-red*, Albi91, brett-pitt, cameron_rae123, clint_westwood, d7418, EaritEarit, Elandale, gaz974ferg, gianluca200279, gimmedaalbatross, GOLFNUT1414, GorgeousDre, iceberg_brulant, interyernan, J-Mod, Jagarico, K*X, Kbongg, Kevin01SH, nathyboy11, OGICEMAN, Optimus_Prime, OverlordLaharl, ragefire18, reeja19, Sasquatch2, Scorpion-1973, Shoinan, sled_dogs76, smuguy97, SuperPal-, Tamahac, The_Frog_76, URRRDONE, WyliePeyote, ZephyrXIII

    Requirements:

    + To be eligible for the rankings, you must be a L20 or have 30 g0 wins.

    + To be ranked, you must have a MINIMUM of 30 g0 tours during month.

    + If I’m not able to gather your info at the end of the month, and the following month your stats reflect 2 months of data, it’s now required that you must have 30 tours PER month (so 60 tours) to be ranked. If I still can’t find you and I have no information in 3 months, then I’ll move you to the retired list. If you come back and play during the following month, I’ll move you from the retired list back to the ranks.

    Breakdown of the rankings:

    The Rankings are determined by your average points per game within the given month. So, on average how many tour points you score every time you play a round. Everyone has good months, bad months, slow starts, a hot streak, etc… so this is will show you how you are currently playing the game. Remember, this is only based on what you performed the past month, not your career stats!

    Power Players Rankings Formula: (wins x 4) + (2nds x 3) + (3rds x 2) / tours played

    There are 3 sections on the spreadsheet, they include:

    + Your raw data, shows you the NUMBER of tours, wins, 2nd, 3rds you achieved for the month. As well as your total pods... 1st, 2nds, 3rds combined.

    + The middle section is how OFTEN you win, 2nd or 3rd and your total pods. (For example you win 20% of the time. wins/tours)

    + The last section is your RANKINGS for each of the other categories in the left & middle section. You may be ranked #30 in the number of tours you play but you pod consistently and ranked #10 in how often (your %) of total pods that you make. The numbers in that last section show where you rank, color-coded for the top 10 in each category. The 2nd spreadsheet shows you the top 10 players for each category in an easier to read format.

    + Then 2nds/Win and 3rds/Win. These are based on a ratio of how many 2nd places or 3rds you earned per win. For example: if you have 2 win, 4 2nds and 6 pods this month. You simply divide your 2nd places by your wins… so you will have earned 2 2nd places for every win you got. And 3 pods for each win you received.

    In case you want to compare… here is the link to the July rankings:
    http://www.hotshotsgolf.com/communit...ead.php?t=8069

    Lastly, the results sections of the chart is now color coded, yellow is a higher score than your previous month, blue is a lower score and white is no change or no ranking in the previous month.

    Okay, well, that's it for this month! If you want to be included for the future months, please make sure you get in at least 30 tours for the month and be sure to find HC or Dimskill within the first few days of the month so we can get your new numbers! Thank you very much!

    that is good work--career win% and pod% are what i'm most interested in, especially since almost all of the top 30 have never had a 2nd account or lost data. 20%/60% is the gold standard in my book, and i've always fought to stay on par with that.

    just always felt that career numbers give a more accurate account of a person's talent--rules out hot streaks/cold streaks, rules out 2nd account bias, rules out dominance of overinflated stats (poppers, saki, and zephyr are good examples)

    Very interesting stuff candi. If I may ask, how did you end up calculating the career rankings? Since it's not any one factor per say, that gives you a good rank, but maybe more of an average? I know total wins can't have an impact since I'm 5th... I tried to figure it out but my brains is not work properly today.

    Great job again Candi and Zaho.
    Smokey, this is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules.

    The amount of work you pour into this is much appreciated. I think that both ranking systems are pertinent, but the monthly is probably more of an indicator of what's currently going on. For example, Arnold Palmer will always be one of the greatest players in golf, however, how would we rank him against say Phil Mickelson? Most majors won or current statistics? This is why I think both rankings are important and have value. So anyways...keep up the great work!
