For the final shout out...

I want to thank every single player that came out to play the two different PDGA 10-week sessions.  I really had a lot of fun and it was something I looked forward to every week.  So much so, it made Wednesday at work almost unbearable.

While I don't like to promise much because things happen, I'm 95% sure we'll do it again next year.

Thanks

almost forgot, ratings are here:

Observations on ratings, they seem to be kind of wacky.  There was some really streaky scores that contributed to it.

9/3/14      Swope Park      Par 55

Bit of a muggy night, but the course was fairly dry after the rain.

26 out, 22 in ace fund.

Shout out to Chris Connell on throwing an Ac on Hole 6.

Bummer!  He didnít pay in to Ace fund. Over the 20 weeks for the PDGA league, we've had 4 Aces, but only 2 paid out. 

Ace fund up to $276.  It will carry over to the next league, either a 5-week glow this fall (still up in the air) or PDGA next year (95% certain).

In general - I prefer Star, GStar, Starlite.

I don't think the Champion Glow glows very well.  But it does seem to be a bit more stable than standard Champion.

I strongly prefer Jolly Launcher (Gummy, right?) Champion over regular Champion.

I'm curious about:

TL3
Teebird3
Nova
Krait

There is a reason why I'm asking but I'd rather not get the cart before the horse

So, curious what your favorite Innova models and plastics are?

Mine are:

Yeti Pro Aviar (bagged)
Mako - Star (indispensable)
Gator - Star (sometimes bagged) and beat DX (putter when playing GBO windy)
TL - Pro and Star (both bagged)
Teebird - GStar (bagged)
Valkyrie - Star, Starlite, (both bagged) Echo Start, Champion, Glow Champion in that order all as backups
Destroyer - Pro and Star (bagged both)
Tern - Gummy/Jolly Launcher Champion (bagged)
Wraith - Blizzard Champion (bagged)

Alternates depending on circumstances

Mako3 - Champion
Sidewinder - Champion
Leopard - Champion
Rhyno - DX stiffer
TeeDevil - Blizzard Champion
Viking - Champion

Gotcha.  I plan on being there.

Tournaments / Re: 2015 PDGA Pro and Am/Jr. Invitation Criteria
« on: September 01, 2014, 06:18:52 PM »
My last thought on this - personally, I think the sign up should be in tiers.  For example, I'll use MM1 - Advanced Masters because that is the division I played in at Emporia Worlds.  For 2013 and 2014 I had to have 200 points to be invited.  For 2015 I need 250 points to be invited.  So far this year, I already have 569 points, more than double what I need.  I suspect I'll end up with over 700 before the year is done.  But, current player rating is 833.  My rating when I was invited to 2013 Worlds was 828.  That's pathetic.  I felt like the Jamaican bobsled team.  I went, but there really was no chance for me to compete.  Don't get me wrong, I had a blast and will go again if I'm financially able to.

The tiers should be both rating and points.  Something like, for MM1, you have to have a player rating of 900 and 250 points to be in the first tier invitation.  After 15 days, if not sold out, then the next tear of 850 rating and 250 points.  After 15 days, rating of 825 or 200 points.  Something like that. 

My three cents.

Speaking of which - PDGA Leagues earn you points for worlds invitations.  Wondering Wednesday has 1 league date left (9/3 at Swope) and Northeast Kansas City League has two league dates left (9/8 and 9/15) for you to earn points.  There are plenty of PDGA sanctioned events in KC and surround area the rest of the year.

***SHAMELESS PLUG***

I'm working on running a tournament in Lawrence on November 29, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  More details to follow.

Tournaments / 2015 PDGA Pro and Am/Jr. Invitation Criteria
« on: September 01, 2014, 06:11:15 PM »
http://www.pdga.com/announcements/2015-pdga-worlds-invitation-criteria-posted

The invitation criteria has been posted for the 2015 PDGA Pro and Am/Jr. worlds.  The amount of points has gone up due to the overwhelming amount of people that have qualified the last couple of years and how quickly the tournaments have sold out.

My thoughts?

Overall, it is a good thing.  Selling out tournaments in 48 hours shows the demand is too high.  By making it harder, it *potentially* makes it leaner for the better players.

The timing is not great.  They should have announced this at the beginning of the year for the next coming year.  However, it is still possible to do something about it now.  Play tournaments - get points.
