Not Scott but I believe I have the answer. With the new calculation, it takes Rating into effect. So, you take the strokes you are getting from the course rating, not par. So if you are getting 5 strokes and the rating is 70 on the tees you are playing, your “par” score is a 75 versus the old way of looking at things adding 5 to the par of 72 being a 77. In my viewpoint, the shorter the tees the less strokes you get and the expectation of what your par is. I think it is tougher on those playing shorter tees versus those playing longer tees. But if everyone plays the same tees, it doesn’t matter. It is the same calculation for everyone.
