Tournaments / Re: 2015 PDGA Pro and Am/Jr. Invitation Criteria
« on: September 02, 2014, 11:12:01 AM »
but ratings are dropping fast this year as well, so how to balance that with the abnormal drop in ratings?

I see what you are trying to do, but it ultimately (especially in the Am side) isn't always about competition, Worlds is an endurance test.  The Am Worlds is more of a place to engage at the MA1 to determine if you want to go pro, and at the MM! and MG1, most cases (MOST I SAID MOST) cases the individual has determined that they either want to play as am for personal reasons, or want to remain Am to win the worlds....I personally continue to play Am because I suck from time to time, and don't have the time to give to call myself a pro.

So I understand the notion of your comment, but ratings based is still very subjective in my mind, depending on where you get your ratings from.  In my opinion it should be based more solely on finishing at A-Tier, Majors, etc.....We give more points at those events, so weight them more heavily in placement of where you finished, if you finished in top half of your field in that you qualified for (like my Japan Open would be thrown out, because I played Pro) you get "worlds" points, then combine those with players points to make a better plan.

Yeah I wanna throw more convoluted math equations that we don't know the secrets to for the sport! 8) ;D

Doh.  I didn't get home until about 10, and went straight to bed.  I will update tomorrow then.  So you played skipping #7, did you play from the road after 10 then, and skip #14 and combine #17 & #18 as well then, to the hangar as well?

Just trying to figure out par, in that case, long #13 would be the only 4, and par would be 55.

I need to get scores and the "layout" you played so I can upload the information when you get a chance Ryan.

Thanks!  Ryan already grabbed the attention, and he knows how to get my box of stuff from my house, so I allowed him to do so.  I do appreciate it for certain though!

Dick forgot that he had a draft tonight, and I didn't...but it still means we need someone to run league tonight.  Can anyone volunteer for this wonderful night of league?

Silly Drew-Hard at work making things better out there for us all.....he moved the baskets to the Tree Love Classic placement for round 1.  With that in mind the following is probably the set up for the league tonight.  I will not be in attendance, but Dick Parker has volunteered to run league tonight for me (Thanks Dick!).  So here is where the pins are at:
14-long (I think across the street?)
17-island (May be short)
18-long uphillshort

If I were running league, I would do as we did last week, which is play #1 to the practice basket, then play the 2 in the woods, then skip #7 out of the woods, and play from #17 pad to #18 basket.

That should curtail some daylight.  You can of course play the hangar, and the short pin on #11 to go a little shorter out there, but ultimately it is the group decision or of course the TD!


Please try to be ready to go by 5:45 so that we can be done with everyone by darkfall.  Reminder, next week is the holiday and there will be NO League at the NE courses, please enjoy time with family and friends, if you need that competitive fix, head out to OooooooooLAYTHA!

1-Practice Basket
2-1st new hole in the woods
3-2nd new hole in the woods
4-#2-Long (will move it)
7-#5-Long (will move it)
8-#6 right tunnel
9-#8 Hangar
10-#9 only
11-#10 Middle
13-#12 Only
15-#14 Long
16-#15 short
17-#16 Long
18-From 17 pad to Blue Practice Basket on long #18

This is a longer format, we will want to get going no later than 5:45 to really get done in time.  I hope to be out there by 5:40 so we will be cutting it close, but I know you can make it and you will want to have fun with this layout.  The Ace fund is sitting at $535, some good chances out there to enjoy for certain.

Updated page 1

8/20 Cliff Drive. Sign up at 5:30 so we can get started earlier. We will be playing the following modified LDO layout:

1-Practice basket left
2-(new hole in woods)
3-2nd new hole in woods)
9-#8 (Hangar)
12-Road shot by #18 pin to blue practice basket (LDO hole)
13-#11 (Short right red pin)
18-#17 pad to uphill #18 pin. Tee off from the right of the pad.

What this means #1 to the practice, then go to the new temp pad, play the 2 new holes in the woods.  Then play the course as normal through existing hole #6, the last hole "in the woods", once you come out you will SKIP #7, and play from #8 pad to the hangar, then play #9, and #10, after #10 you go to the tree by #18 on the road (the tree to the South, or the FIRST tree when playing #18), play from the road where it is marked LDO to the Blue practice basket, then play #11 to the short Red practice basket, then go to #12, then #13, then skip #14, and walk just to the pad on #15 and play it, and then #16 Long (water fountain) and then tee either on the pad on #17 or to the front of the pad (you will see a painted line) to #18 long on the hill.

I hope this helps.  We got through the round last night, everyone did within 2 hours.

No ace was hit, it grows to $535.

We had 9 out on a hot hot night to play a version of the LDO layout that added a little teeth, but nothing to monumental.

Jose Ossa had the "heat on" during the round as he shot the best with a 51.  There was a tie then for second place between Dick Parker and Peter Bures with a 53.  Though Dick did have 6 birdies, he balanced that with a 5 and many a missed putt, as did Peter as well, so at times, yes Peter and Dick were short....HEEYY-OOOO!  It was balanced out though as the rest of the pro playing field all shot a 54 on the course......which speaking of 54's that happened to be the Advanced best in Ryan Westa who knew he shot better than an 825 that he did last week, in fact over 100 points better at a 936, and Bill Shinoski continues to improve week over week at Cliff.  Bill has only played below his rating 2x, and is averaging 19 points over his rating at Cliff.  I only wish I could say the same.

Missed a chance on the easiest layout of the year last night, and want to try it?  Want to get a better round rating on the course?
Wednesday Night Wandering League will be in the same format and with more people playing it will make for different ratings.

Next week we will play a continuation of shorter and "newer" holes as the daylight erodes, we play to have fun, and as football gets closer, we play to mot miss the games, but still get our disc fix on.

See you next week, or I won't that decision is yours.
