    I don't see a way to model that, because the imaginary 4th player could be really good or really bad and may never score... or score 18 times.

    I think the 1.33 multiplier method is pretty reasonable. It doesn't assume the imaginary player's score counts every time. It assumes it counts 10 times (and scores the average of the other 30 scores). Not too bad.

    After saying all that... I would just make the threesomes count 40 actual scores. It would be interesting to score using both methods over a number of rounds and see how close the total scores for the two methods line up.

    Good luck!

    To lure Tripping William into this discussion, and to tie in the "Words..." thread, I have to inquire which Ymm, Beer pairs best with shank.

    A Syrah pairs wonderfully with a lamb shank. Ymmm, wine . . . .

    I would think that Syrah and lamb shank could play well together, but it seems inevitable that one would take minutes from the other during a meal. There is after all only one mouth.

    I guess “wine by IV” isn’t a thing in your world yet?

    I'm with you on not a serious golfer...but I don't want to sound like a tourist either....I can sound serious, even while hacking it up.

    (I did play to a 14HC at my best...and do have two validated holes in one....better to be lucky than good while PLAYING golf....)
