Andy: I'd agree that Golf Magazine comes the closest to getting this "right", if such a subjective thing can ever have a correct result... the use of a small knowledgeable panel not easily awed or swayed is the best way to do this without a doubt.

Has anyone compared 2003 "Tradition" numbers to past "Tradition" numbers? I looked online but couldnt find any past data.If the "tradition" points substantially vary from year to year for particular courses, it would seem that "tradition" is purely being used as a fudge factor.
