I’ve seen this formula below to covert Rd showdown fantasy scores to help predict round scores,

Trying to determine if doing the calculation right for Rd 1 on the RBC Heritage

(Par score + rd score to par - (Specific player round fantasy score - field average round score)/1.2) +(0.3* wave adjustment) (dependent on which wave the player is scheduled).

If take Scottie as an example:

Have par of 71 for RBC, plus 0 (little confused on round score to par) – 45 for points – the average for the field for points 35.67. Then divide by 1.2 for the DK showdown points then add the .3

(71 + 0 – (45-35.67)/1.2)+.3

Would take any help can get, thanks!

Check out this thread.

Seems like you are doing a few things wrong/differently here.

- rd score to par is “R1 Scoring Average to Par on the page… so -1 here”.
- You want to divide by ~4 not 1.2. The 1.2 tells you how much the wave split is worth in points, but what you actually want is how much a stroke is worth in points. The point of dividing by 4 is to go from points to strokes.
- not sure why the wave split is multiplied by 0.3… normally I would multiply it by 0.5 but maybe that is to account for prediction uncertainty. Anyways in that case you need to do 0.3 * wave split which is 0.3 strokes here… so that’d be 0.3*0.3 = 0.09.

Perfect thanks for the help Matt, makes a lot more sense now.
