If "par" for you at McDade means a score of 54, and that's what you average, then you're a about 955-rated player which is well into the Advanced division. You can use this link to see the various player ratings for different scores at McDade: http://www.pdga.com/tournament-resul...ratings=1#Open

I think there's a good chance that McDade's SSA will change. Par at an easy course like McDade isn't reflective of a 955 rating... at least not for the locals who frequent the course. Almost every hole is a birdie opportunity out there, even on some of the longer holes.
