Bernd Wiesberger's Prediction Records Fixed on Golf Predictor

The problem with Bernd Wiesberger's incorrect world ranking on has been finally fixed on Golf Predictor. The 79 tournaments that the Austrian played in that were affected by this naming issue have all been updated. This means that in addition to all his statistics being updated for those tournaments, the GP rankings for all these events have been retrospectively updated with Wiesberger in his correct position.

As this was a large number of events and likely to be an issue for other golfers in the future (due to inconsistent naming of golfers beyond my control), I wrote various scripts to automate the process. While the writing and testing of said scripts took some time, it did save a lot of tedious manual updating. It also means I will be able to fix any similar future issues in a matter of minutes, thus helping Golf Predictor to remain as one the most accurate sources of golfer information!

Because of a small oversight in the scripts used to update Wiesberger's records, his prediction rank was not calculated correctly for the affected tournaments.

That has now been addressed and his true rank for all events he has participated in is now available on Golf Predictor. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Fixed another small issue today with his events after this problem was found. That should now be the end of the issue with Bernd's predictions!
