Yeah.....we may want to do a KS-KCFDC vs. MO-KCFDC before we have an answer for the other event...that could decide the team.....

I like the total ratings points idea added that could work as well......

I tend to play lower than my rating, so you would not want me on any team anyway......

You can't get a waiver for can only request to move from Am from Pro classification.  Rec/Int/Adv are all am status......his rating would prevent him from playing in any of those classifications.  It does however take 6 rated rounds before you have an "actual rating", so if he shot some 850 rounds ( I give lessons on those.....) he might be fine.

As I was driving, I realized that we were thinking of a 10 person team, not 8 when we discussed, so that you could have 4 super stars, but the rest of the team was of human talent level.....

What are the rules?  Whos playing, who decides?  Ratings?  Word of mouth?  How is this thing organized?

I ain't driving 4 hours to play 2 rounds of golf in a scenario that I have no clue of how its being done.

We have discussed this for years, no format has ever been given to make it understandable.  THe best scenario that we discussed was with a StL, Columbia, KC event, then ratings based, 6 people teams......

You're talking 15 people ($300/team)  Who decides who can play, is it just the first 15 people?

Wayyy too many items left unattended in my mind.....Ages, gender, how is it balanced so that each municipality is represented fairly?

Let me know when you have some specifics.  Way to vague to spend that much time in the car.

OUr version that we did come up with was as follows:

StL, Columbia, KC
8 people per team
Must have the following:
2-people under 930
2-people under 975

The format would be a match play with points awarded for each team.  The first location would be Columbia, with a coin flip for the next location between the two cities.  Those Cities coming would choose the course(s) to play on Columbia was determined to use Back/Indian.....

That information is probably from like 2006 when McCormack and I were talking about the winning team taking the USDGC spot and giving it to the person that team wanted to.

You had to be a member of the club that you represent.

Hope that helps.

Just saying I need 15 people will not get me, but then you may not want me to be there if I try to make it organized and specific to understand the rules for the $900 that you are thinking about.....

Also the best I could win is $40, I'd rather play homey here with people in all the above areas and be home in 30 minutes or less.....

If it is organized appropriately and managed by some assemblence of rules, it could be a lot of fun, and has been in discussion with people for years around here.

Best of luck, I know that I tried to work something, but having 3 weekends to make it work was a challenge for the people as well.

Tournaments / Re: Course Configurations for Club Championships
« on: October 20, 2009, 05:12:14 PM »
how many times is cliff drive going to be used in KC tournaments this year? Should we rename every tournament "the cliff drive series" and then we could number them 1...2...3...4...etc. Or we could call them, "Cliff Drive" and then "Return of Cliff Drive" and "Bride of Cliff Drive." Or "The Cliff Drive chronicles; The day we also played [enter other course name here]."

Why not Wyco?

Lets see......Mighty Mo (5th year at Cliff and WW)......precedent huh?

Wide Open-Wanted to run through it with a full field for worlds...

City of Fountains (5th year Cliff and Blue Valley)

Now, I RUN the events that I want, and I like CLIFF DRIVE, if you want to run an event (which nice job you did) then you pick the courses....

While I can not complain about the selection, I also know the answer, its because the people that do the work (TD's) decide the course.  I run the events that I run on the courses that I want.

So its not a club thing, its a jack thing.  Its three events.........If you want another course, make an event and make it happen.  I did thats why I have 2 events, and the third was selected to help with the worlds....

As for the Club Championships, I had absolutely nothing to do with the selection of the courses.

Last year we used SM Park and WyCo, this year its Rosey and Swope........

Times are tough when you have to chose between all the courses we have......come play in a great event that you help to make!

Looking forward to seeing you all out there!

I just updated Cliff Drive, and the Ace Fund was at $413 when Bobby hit #5 in July, and has had $69 added to it, for a total of $482, and thus Bobby is owed $241 (-$20 KCFDC membership) for a total check of $221.

Ace Fund is currently $241
