Does anyone know when we have to be PDGA current in order to get an invite to AM Worlds? Or as long as we're current by the  tournament does it not matter.

DD is releasing their own Driver fairly soon, conjecture is that Latitude 64 is doing the molding.

Maybe 5% of the population that plays even semi-seriously. People who play in leagues and occasional tournaments, sure.

But all of disc golfers? Like, people who play even remotely regularly? It's probably well below 1%.

Also these unsanctioned events give us Advanced players a chance to play up and get some experience in the Open Division.

I guess we could do that at a sanctioned event anyway, but you'd have to turn down cash.

That all makes a lot of sense, thanks Loomis. I'm definitely keeping AM Worlds in mind.

That is a bit disheartening that the course isn't even mentioned in a passing. Doesn't sound like much is on the immediate (less than 5 years) horizon, though.

Is the same format for final nine from this year still in consideration? Because that was the coolest thing to watch!  ;D

This is literally the only thing I care about. I wonder how the pros feel about Final 9s (especially since holes were used that were different than the normal Swope Gold).

But it was by far the highlight of my weekend.

So we agree then. We don't need every course to be super hard, we just need one or two or three to be super hard.

I think, in the end, it comes down to variety. The base SMP course fits within the variety of KC disc golf for having multiple pin positions and being moderately challenging but yet maintaining that air of beginner friendliness. If the park would give us more land, I think we need to swing for the fences and put something out of character for KC there. At least two par 5's, 4-8 par 4's, and the rest can be varying degrees of par 3's. Then, if it needs to be adapted from there, there can be a goal to have two tees on each hole, with one being shorter and much easier, just like at Young Park.

That's my dream, essentially. Along with a potential sanctioned event next year that I mentioned, I'll do my best to plug the idea of a championship level course at the park.  I don't know how far we're likely to get with that, especially in the immediate future, but that's why we're talking about it. We can't implement any amazing ideas without dreaming about it first.

Why not put in another 18 pin course altogether?

Lord knows the park is big enough. Big enough for 10 full courses, easily.

Like I said, we have good contacts in the Parks Department, hopefully something like that could be a possibility in the future.

Some people have thrown out the idea of using an area already near the course, and adding 9 holes. So that someone could still play the course as usual, or one could play an extended version of 27 holes if they wanted to.

This guy is a joke. Throws 50 discs off the tee until he gets an ace, counts them all.
