Interested to know what folks are seeing in different areas. Here in NC this is what I notice initially:
  • Usually always a handful of guys that get bumped down to 2.5. This year only 1
  • Also very few males bumped down to 3.0 or 3.5
  • Not a lot of movement overall
  • 4.1% of players bumped down
  • 7.0% of players bumped up

Thanks for putting in the work and showing us this. Did this include self rates?

Data that jumps out at me:
4.5 level, much higher % of females bumped down than males.
All levels, males are bumped up at a higher % than females and bumped down at a lower % than females ... I am curious as to why as that one makes no sense on the surface.

That and in your area if you are a 4.5 you REALLY don't want to be bumped to 5.0 if you enjoy league play!
