Tournaments / Matchbox 64 MODIFIED Match Play Comment Thread
« on: March 18, 2015, 12:40:21 pm »
Matchbox 64 Comment Thread.

Scott Reek and I are joining efforts on a MODIFIED match play format tournament created by Steve Dodge of Vibram disc golf.  I’ll be running the tournament, Scott will be collecting registrations and doing payouts.  The date is set for Sunday, August 30th.  Course is yet to be determined.

This thread is to allow some discussion to take place before the final format is declared.  Please be civil in your comments.  When the final format and course is determined, I will start a new thread specifically for that.  This is for discusison only.

This will be a NON-sanctioned tournament.  Ams can play Pro and accept cash without affecting their Am status.  There will be two divisions offered.  Pro and Am.  Pro will be awarded cash, Am will be awarded credit at DDKC Store only.  Each division will be limited to 32 players.  Each card will be limited to four players.  Eight cards per division.

Women can play but a separate division will not be offered.  In order for this to work, divisions of 4 are required.  If this turns out be be succesful, maybe we can start a 4 or 8 lady separate division next year.

World Cup Format:
On each hole, for each person in your group that you score better than, you get a point. In each round, you are only competing against the other players on your card.

Examples of scoring per hole:
Everyone gets the exact same score: 3 or a 4 or a 2 – No score is awarded, you put a ‘0’ on the score card for everyone.

You get a 3, everyone else gets a 4.  You get a ‘3’, because you beat 3 people, everyone else gets a ‘0’

Two people get a 3, two people get a 4.  The two people that get a 3 each score a ‘2’ because they beat 2 people – those that got a 4.  Those that got a 4 get a ‘0’.

You get a 2, two people get a 3, one gets a 4.  You get a ‘3’ because you beat three people.  The two people that got a 3 get ‘1’ each because they each beat one person – the individual that scored a 4.  The 4 gets ‘0’.

You get a 2, all others get a 4.  You get a ‘3’ because you beat three people.  Others get a ‘0’.  You don’t get bonus points due to the scoring spread, you only get points for how many people you beat.

You get a 2, two people get a 4, one gets a 6.  You get a ‘3’ because you beat three people.  The two that scored 4 get ‘1’ each because they each beat one person.  The one that scored ‘6’ gets a ‘0’.

A sequenced is thrown, i.e., 2, 3, 4, 5.  The person that shot a 2, gets a '3' on the score card.  The person that shot a 3 get a '2' on the score card.  The person that shot a 4 gets a '1' on the score card.  The person that shot a 5 gets a '0'.

Highest score wins.

Need to figure out tie breakers yet.  The Vibram thread had some ideas.

Divisions offered:
The reporting of divisions will differ for the PDGA and KCFDC.  For the payout portion (KCFDC), it will be based on standard KC league formats.  In order to have a division, 3 people or more need to be available for the least restrictive denominator per Pro or Am division

For example –
1-5 Open players – all play Open.
6+ Open players, can split into various divisions (Open, Pro Masters, Pro Women, Pro Grand Masters, etc.)

1-5 Am players – All play Advanced
6+ Am players – Can be split into various divisions (Advanced, Advanced Women, Intermediate, Rec, etc.)


Payouts will be the approved KCFDC format as shown here:

http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=9359.0

Reporting to the PDGA:
As far as reporting to the PDGA there are two benefits: first to get a rating, second to get point used for Pro and Am Worlds.  It benefits everyone, top and bottom, to be placed in the same grouping for points if the highest categories are used.  Therefore, for the PDGA reporting it will be simply Open and Advanced regardless of gender or age.

Best place to find results:

Tournaments / 27th Memorial Championship presented by Discraft
« on: February 26, 2015, 11:00:28 am »
Anybody know Jason (Jack) Hebenheimer?  He lives in Jefferson City, MO.  My very first PDGA tournament I played in, Kan-U-Wyco in 2012 I was on his card.  I think he is now 16 or 17.

Anywho - he's tied for first place in Advanced with 186 players.  Pretty cool.

And the machine keeps rolling.

Seriously, DD is like the Borg with personality.  They will assimiliate everything and anything.

I'm not jabbing - it's just kind of a weird awesome thing going on.

Clothing - check
Discs - check
Bags - check
Shoes - check
Shorts - check
Coolers - check
Baskets - check

General Banter / Cleaning out pole holes.
« on: November 21, 2014, 03:59:08 pm »
Ouch.

OK, so the Centennial course has several pin placements that are filled in with dirt, pea gravel, etc not making them able to be used.  Any suggestions on how to clean them out?  It seems as though one would need a relatively close to diameter auger to clean them.

General Banter / New match play format suggestion.

From Steve Dodge, Vibram:

Quote
I love match play. It is, as far as I know, the way golf was intended when it was first created. A series of 18 head to head challenges. Unfortunately, to hold a tournament with a lot of players, stroke play became the tournament format of choice. With some noodling and some creative sessions with friends, here is a format that I believe closely echoes the original intent of golf while allowing a tournament of 64 players, all played in one day - which is how we like our tourneys up here in New England.

World Cup Format:
On each hole, for each person in your group that you score better than, you get a point. In each round, you are only competing against the other players on your card.

Round 1: 16 Foursomes
Note: I like the groups to be created randomly, but adventurous TDs can try to rank all the players and bracket them (caution: this is a great way to create dissension and bickering ;-)

Round 2: Semifinals
Four Lead Foursomes
Four 2nd Place Foursomes
Four 3rd Place Foursomes
Four 4th Place Foursomes

Round 3: Finals
The winners of each of the four lead foursomes play a final Quasi-Match Play round.

Order of top 24 players, who get a payout.
1st-4th: Order of finish in Round 3 Finals
5th-8th: Finished in 2nd place from one of the four lead foursomes in Rd2
9th-12th: Won one of the 2nd Place Foursomes in Rd2
13th-24th: 3rd place in lead foursome, 2nd place in 2nd foursome, 1st place in 3rd foursome
