Tournaments / Re: 27th Memorial Championship presented by Discraft

Hebenheimer has a signature Fedora inspired look.

A lot of people have problems adjusting to the pace of play.  It obviously slows way down for tournaments.  There can be other distractions, like over thinking the rules (who is out, foot placements, etc).  Once these things become second nature you can relax and just focus on your game. 

The weekly leagues / mini tournaments really helped me get comfortable with the tournament feel and get to a point where I could just play.

I used Cyberlink Power Director 13. 

You can download a fully functional trial for 30 days.  I went ahead and purchased it on Amazon for around 50 or 60.

It helps to have a computer with a SSD and a decent video card.  I also used Audacity (open source yay) to split the song into 6 second chunks.

It can be pretty tedious to do the edit, especially the first time.  Once you learn some keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl + Alt + T brings up the Trim Tool) and other tricks it gets a lot easier.  We still need to do a better job cleaning up focus / camera angles (don't film behind a tee sign lol).  We are certainly still very very amateur, but are improving a little.

You were out filming as well right?  I would love to see some of the shots you got.  If you wanted more help feel free to contact me on Facebook or something.  It seems like you and I both share the same passion for trying to promote the sport / local scene.

Here is the video my daughter recorded for those bored at work today:

Here is some video of the lead card Final 9.

The coverage starts out rough (lighting, focusing issues) but it gets a little better towards the end.  The card was moving very fast and filming down under is not an easy thing to do.  My 13 year old did her best!

My daughter recorded 4 1/2 holes.  For her first time I think she did great.  However, there are some pretty obvious things to work on.  I am hoping she will be able to record several events around the area.  I'm planning on getting her 2 more batteries (doh) and maybe a higher zoom lens.  Anyhow, here it is if anyone wants to see:

TIP: With every other disc if there is ink on it it's worth less.  However, with the groove if you write P. Bures on it, the value of the disc increases.

I'm planning on showing up tonight with a cooler full of Ace beer!

I had no problems with any of the pro masters playing.  I think it really makes for a interesting mashup of potential young pros with seasoned master players.  The tougher players are the soon to be pros playing AMs (>970 refused cash).  I think you just have to accept that in big AM tournaments you are going to have these players.  Bowling green has probably the biggest non-major AM tournament:

The advanced field is littered with these pro AM players who have refused open cash in smaller tournaments.

I expect this tournament to grow.  The sandbagging will grow right along with it.

I can't imagine how frustrated you must be Utz.  Unless your caddy was being loud or obnoxious the person who ratted on you is a tool. 

From a TD perspective they have to apply the rules consistently.  They can't take into account how much a person does for their local club, or for their local course, etc.  So when the rat confronted them about the issue they had no choice.  I am pointing this out just because it's important to understand where  to channel your frustration.   I don't think it should be directed at the great event that was put on.

Sorry again buddy and good shooting this weekend.
