One of the things I notice and hear how you have to game rankings. While some of that is sadly true.  Most think if you have a bad round you should withdraw. That doesn't help you in rankings because of the way they work. Bad first round and then WD without a valid reason I believe is going to hurt more in the long run.

Actually if have you a bad first round wouldn't having a great second round be a huge positive to most coaches.  I would think for college coaches doing better on the second day constantly is very important.

I have a feeling this a big aspect that coaches read in between the lines. I don't know maybe I am wrong on this.

if I were a college coach and saw a lot of first rounds scores that here higher and WD the next. I would walk away. Shows me you are a quitter. Its gets hard you walk away. I surely hope this isn't a real thing out there.

You would be surprised at people to find a lot people thinks this helps. I think at one time it did because unless you completed a round it was not reported. However they do report it now.

The other loophole is a bad second round they withdraw but I think that is obvious too. If you start a tournament unless you have a valid reason I would think your better off finishing.

If it is a legit injury, a lot of directors won't report it JGS.

College coaches aren't stupid.  They want to see bad rounds.  They stay away from kids with WD, NC, for the most part.

JGS records all fcompleted and finished rounds and take the top 75% of them. If you play a crappy round and WD then all it accomplishes is adding a crappy round to your list. If youíre playing poorly and confident that youíre going to have another crappy round then keeping that off would, I guess, help. But if you follow it with a good round, possibly even a great round, then it can actually help. Youíre gonna have throw away scores (25% of them, actually).

JGS doesnít punish for poor finishes. They do, however, reward top finishes. They also reward field strength and if you play crappy in a highly rated event and WD then you wonít get the field strength benefit, which hurts.

AJGA doesnít factor in scoreóonly finish. And you get the same number of points (0) for a WD as you do a crappy finish.

Golfweek looks only at who you beat and who beats you on a round by round basis, as well as your score relative to others, again, on a round by round basis. So, WDíing after a crappy round only ensures a crappy relative score and opponent record for that day without giving yourself the chance to make up for it the next day.

So, WDíing after a bad round isnít helpful unless your confident the crappy play will just continue. And it looks bad to have a bunch of WDís on the resume
