Leagues / Re: 2015 Meandering Monday PDGA League - Both Sessions
« on: August 24, 2015, 12:35:32 pm »
Looks like it will be a great evening and we won't get rained out like last time we tried to play DU.  Daylight ends at 8pm.  So, sign up starts at 5:30, tee off at 5:45 SHARP. 

Meet at picnic round table near Hole 9 Tee box.

I will get there as quickly as traffic allows, but Rob I will be in attendance, and I know how hard it is on people showing up last minute, so please understand I am at the discretion of work and traffic, but plan to be there by 5:30, but may be closer to 5:45.

Thanks for running league!

Rob Martin is running a 1 day, 1 round ratings based tournament in November.  By 1 round, I mean all 27 holes at Blue Valley and they are to be maxed out.  Hole 1, then executive course then 2 through 18.  I am looking forward to playing with my 851 to 900 breathren.

In case you missed it...I think though that it has been moved to the 21st of November....

.... Thanks for clarifying.

 ;D

Generally what I try to do, but I know that I am a smarta$$ often and some people take it as an antagonistic approach, when it is truly more of a flippant response!

Glad to help!!

So my friend played at lunch today and sent me a picture of the aforementioned deer on the hill from 13.

Umm...here is the imgur link not sure how to post pictures. http://imgur.com/K2OlRlJ


Is it still there to skin at least?



Do you read anything all the way through?



Thanks for posting.

I was able to reach out to the right folks on staff with the Parks and Recreation.

I notified them, and they had it taken care of within hours of reading this post.

Seriously less than an hour from when I notified them they sent me a note saying it was done.

We are BLESSED to have the best parks department in the country work with us.

You gonna do it along the lines of the Gold to Purple then Rob?

Can people "play" above their rating, or will you be required to play only in your "color" based on ratings?

I'm sure it's just a typo but it's fun to poke the guy sometimes.....     ::)

'DOH!!!!

I will pay $20 for any discs in the ponds of mine that you get out at WyCO or Olathe, Smithville...the rest are pretty safe from me....Don't forget Bales Lake at Blue Valley or the Pond at Cliff Drive....

...... I know the rules regarding pros playing am events. It is what it is. I don't have any problem with those guys playing in the MAC per say......

Wait for it.....( I do this all the time, don't take offence to it from me please)


But what made me think was that it was brought up that in Majors, pros absolutely cannot play AM regardless of rating. I know the MAC is not a major, but is there anyway to establish the same rating rules as a major for this tournament?

Yes, by making it a MAJOR, which it isn't.  This is NOT a MAJOR, if it gets to that point then yeah, but how many  of the <970 are truly "PRO's"  Because by this logic..... There was only one over 970 and he was an Amateur..... He finished tied for 6th.....  Yet at AM world's there were 13 over 970+, The winner (987) topped the grouping, but there was a 141 place finisher (Missed the cut-971-Rated) a 980 finished 20, and 976 59th....


I heard a few players who were just a little disappointed that in an Amateur championship they weren't actually competing against just amateurs. I know the system is flawed. We don't have to get into that. Just wondered if this was a possibility or not. I think it would almost make it an even more elite style tournament if there was a real am only designation.

I guess elitism is an issue here, you want elitism, you should be looking to move to the "pro" level in my own mind.

If you want to compete against like minded relatively balanced individuals that are not "truly pro" then I believe that this format works.

Now......

I have mentioned to Scott that I would like to see a "RATINGS ONLY" event of this magnitude, where you play the following fields-
970+
<935-969
<900-934
<850-899
<800-849  4--Sorry Kevin!!
<799

You would only be able to play in the appropriate rated area.  You would need to have at least 12 rounds rated, and 6 within the year of the event to qualify.

So you pulled a "me" and you do have a problem with it.  But it is the way that it is to allow for a more competitive field.

The only way this can change is to go to a RATINGS based field, or get enough to make it a "MAJOR", which BTW will require more $$$ from people in the other fields to pay as you have to be current, pay for your officials tests, etc.....so you want to charge more how you gonna pitch that?

^^^^I was thinking the same thing, I think I shot a 54.....

And, I do consider caddying as helping beyond their game.  The pros can help keep a group of Ams moving as they "should" know the rules better (picture Rick's dream for the RAC), can notice things an Am might not notice out on the course and report back to me, might be willing to run an errand for me or help out in other ways briefly should I have chosen to ask them to do something.

I can see that as a much stronger value added worded this way.

Kudos for yet again having me flip flop....

Thanks Jack,  open mouth insert foot.

Ratings a MESSY thing, I didn't realize the Pros can play as an AM thing until Claring called me on it as I was almost too high to be a pro and play Am Masters....I fixed that be going back to AM....now I can play Intermediate, though my round Sunday looks to put me back in Novice....ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Then shot a 56 at Olathe last night....UGH....
