Tournaments / Kansas City Wide Open 2016 split?
« on: Today at 10:03:20 am »
Could I please get some clarrification whether the KCWO 2016 will be split or not?  I thought I read that it was, then it wasn't, but am not sure.  If it is going to be split, when will the second installment be?  Thanks.

It's surprising how often it happens.

Since 11/2014 I have ran 12 events not counting the 7 player one rounder and the 9 player glow event.  Only one time out of 12 had I not had an error.  Every other event has had at least one error per tournament.  Some of those tournaments had only a dozen cards on 18 holes with typical Par 54 and there was still an error.  I even had an error first round, did an announcement before second round about double checking your score (back when I used to do a short meeting prior to second round which I don't do anymore) and still had someone turn in an error.

I'm also not immune to errrors as  TD.  I counted a card wrong, double checked it, stroked the player, only to have the player show me my error.

On Saturday we had one error (out of 4-5), I had someone else double check it, and also confirmed it was wrong.  The player asked me about it on Sunday.  I took pictures of the card, he double checked it and demonstrated to me that I ( and the second counter) was wrong.  I corrected his score, apologized profusely, and we worked out a details of what it cost him reward wise.

Mistakes happen.  Saturday was particularly rough counting cards with the 27 holes and the 7s, 8s, and 9s on some holes.

Currently there are 11 on waitlist. I rearranged the order so there is one list and it is based on time of registration / notices. I'm capping waitlist at 12.
WL# Player name PDGA# Division
1 Harold Berciunas - MG1
2 Cody Freeman - MA2
3 Blake Mitchell - MA2
4 Troy Mitchell - MA2
5 robert uitts 59715 MA1
6 Bob Ward - MPG/MPO
7 Robert Adams 54691 MPO
8 Sean Land 70842 MA2
9 Tom Thompson 24927
10 Steve Dresser - MPO
11 paul beard 67009 MM1

I'm working on the TD report. I thought this was interesting. The black and blue numbers are what the PDGA recommended for payout for this tournament. The green Manual Adj column is what I actually paid with the Red being the places paid out.  Total Pro purse paid out was $400.

I'm trying to show, that for better or for worse, even though Maverick DG tournaments generally are a C-Tier for Pro events, I do pay a bit higher than recommended for C-tiers, and I do pay a bit deeper than recommended. Only as information on how I do things.  Because of the size of operation of Maverick DG, added cash is not normal, but payouts are above what is recommended for C-tiers.


Wow! We had 73 players start AND complete the Big Blue Monster! Crazy! There were a few hiccups with the event that I learned from, but overall I think it went fairly well.

Here are the results:

Unclaimed Pro Payouts:
Scott Reek - $21 cash

Unclaimed Am Payouts:
Bill Larrabee - $48
Brandon Forbes - $38
Dan Meyers - $33
Thomas Johns - $26
Anthony Birchfield - $10

Am merchandise credit expires 12/31/15.

Results are being delayed until I can get a copy of the TD Report for Ratings Based tournaments. I'm asking different people that I think may have a report copy, but it may be Monday until I get it.

Sorry for the delay.

Tournament is full.  You can still sign up on waitlist by prepaying at  If you don't get in I will refund your money except the $1.34 (or so) that goes to dgcene's processing fees.  *Probably* will make the cut off for wait list Friday afternoon / evening so you know if you are in or not and don't show up and not get in.

I agree with Steve.  7 is super long down hill through the bottleneck and up the hill to the left.  Dgcr lists the long placement at 744 feet but I think it's probably 800 +.


is there a way to check if i paid the $5 for the ace/ctp? i cant remember if i did or not, but if i didn't, is there a chance to still pay for it the day of the tournament or something?

Kevin, you paid it.

19 spots left. 

The whole time Doug Keeler and I have talked about having this set up to the absolute longest it will go.  To the tippy tips.  I trust him that has been done.  The only hole I'm just a little bit iffy on would be Hole 7.  There was talk about finishing the Black/Red placement and I thought I read that it was done, but I can't find the reference now.  So I'm not 101% sure.  More like maybe 89% sure it was done.

It's going to be a rough day.  To all players, I would highly recommend you come prepared with warm clothes, hand warmers, caps, etc.  If need to, park your car somewhere strategic to pick up or drop off clothing and food.  This will be an iron man single round.


Grip Equipment bags are on their way! At least two bags will be given away after the tournament as the Ace / CTP Fund. One will be your choice of a Paul McBeth SE or the AX15 - Camo. The other will be a C14 - black. All bags come with a lifetime warranty registration card.

How do you win one of these awesome bags? Pay the $5 Ace fund during registration or the morning of during check in. If one person gets an Ace, they choose their bag and we do a modified CTP game after second round for the second bag. If two people get an Ace, those two people get a bag. If three or more people get an Ace, those players will do a CTP game after second round. The CTP is a modified CTP in that there is a hierarchy of hits or misses.

Generally the line is 100-150 feet.
 An Ace trumps
 A Chain Out which trumps
 Hitting top band or basket which trumps
 Hitting the pole.
 If nobody hits metal, then it is actual CTP.

The person that hits chains but spits out 20' is higher than someone who slides up to within 1 foot of the pole.

So...are you an aggressive player and go for it, and possible miss all, or do you play safe and slide up to the pole?

As of this post, only 23 total spots are open, 18 pro spots are open.


The monster to dominate is more than just the course.  It is your will vs. the elements, competitors, desire to be home watching sports instead of playing sports. 

Who's going to tame this Big Blue Monster?

I'm not really sure what to say about that. 

You.  You are a smart guy.

Walk ups with cash are fine.  Come early, like 10:15
