For future consideration....

I understand the idea of wanting to keep the courses relatively close.
Also understand people's desire to showcase their local course and the work they do on it.

I also understand how some municipalities may or may not want to host large tournaments on their park properties and the politics that could get involved.

I also have heard rumblings that some touring pros don't like it when an established tournament keeps changing the courses year after year.  They want continuity.

I think what makes KC unique is the quantity and quality of the courses.  We don't have to be like the others always using the same 1 or 2 courses every year (Memorial, Steady Ed, etc.)

Maybe just a consideration....

Have one KCWO primarly East courses.  Young, Legacy, etc.

Next KCWO have primarily SW courses, PC, SMP, Olathe Lake.

Next KCWO have primarily north central courses, WW, WyCo, etc.

Far north courses,


Just a thought.

Same day has nothing to do with it jack...very poor argument.

When is the last time PC, Lakeside or Wyco was used in a tourney?  March
When is the next time those will be used?  Sept....?
How many times will WW, Rosey and Swope be used in that gap?  Too Many

I guess if those courses had more tourneys though then I would be playing on a dirt field instead of nice grass.  So I guess you can keep your same old crap.

Feel free to throw in Blue Springs and Lee Summit as well do you don't try to use the KS bias card.

It's amazing when someone feels the need to judge a person’s opinion....I had the same thing happen with Rob on the cost of worlds.    Rob, condescending and disrespectful remarks are probably more of a hindrance than an opinion.

*clearing throat* Ahem

Stop hindering sir

You will need to be in attendance for at least 6 of the 10 weeks to qualify for the "series award" (TBD, but I will have something)  I would also encourage more participation for Am's in this series as well this upcoming year.

Has this been determined?

Registration should now be open to anyone for divisions with spots open.

Looks like:

Advanced has 5-10 spots depending on their waitlist updates
Advanced Grandmasters has 5 or spots

various other divisions may have 1-3 spots depending on where they are at on their call back lists.

I've used Aviars, Blowfly, Wizard, Millenium Omega, Vibram Summit before I've finally settled.

My main putter is a Yeti Pro Aviar.  It's an Aviar but made with a R-Pro plastic.  During the cooling process it becomes slighlty concave.  I use it because for me it feels low profile for a putter, I like how it feels in my hand, I like the plastic, and I've gotten the most consistent with it (for me).  I always carry 2.  One beat in, one fairly fresh.  Beat in one is for tailwinds, or longer puts.  I do tend to put with a slightly anhyzer spush (spin push, more spin than push) a la Anthon.  I use my fresh one for headwinds or when I need to use more hyzer than anhyzer because of foliage, etc.

I also carry one DX Rhyno for a bit stronger headwinds.  It seems funny to me (because I prefer Yetis), but I prefer DX Rhynos over R-Pro Rhynos.

In even stronger headwinds (as seen at GBO), I even putt with a beat in DX Gator.  Flat top, terrible glide.  Fights wind and then just drops to the ground if you miss.

I recommend finding one you like, then stockpile.  Over the last year, I've accumulated through purchase, trade, winnings, etc. 8 Yetis now.  Practicing with a stack of the same putter, varrying just 2-3 grams, has helped me the most.

All three are beaded putters.  I just prefer beads.  Beadless putters seem naked or amputated, or something like that.

I think smp should do a pdga league. I bet it would double the amount of peeps that play. Most of the regs are pdga members anyway.

I wasn't planning on going, but the buzzz on this kind of just sizzled.

My intention is to play this as well.  Waiting for cash flow to increase a bit before payment.
May was expeeeeennnsive

Does round 2 start 6/3 or 6/17?

If 6/17, does rounds on 6/3 and 6/10 go on Round 1 or are they in the inbetwen purgatory?

This maybe a redundant or uneducated question buttttt, so we get a rated round when we play this league, but does it affect our player pdga rating?  I would think so but I'm wrong on a semi regular basis.

 yes sir, it reflects on your pdga rating.... what awesome about the way Jack does it, he doesn't submit anybodies money, so Am's can play up and take cash, but it doesn't go against your am status...

This is actually totally legit in the PDGA League FAK's.  They come out and say Am's can accept cash at leagues without affecting their status.

P.S. I chatted with Jeremy Rusco at DD in Emporia yesterday. Told him we would be coming down for Friday Traveling league pre AM Worlds. He said he could help put together something fun for us! We didn't speak specifics, but there might be some DD funny money or prizes???

I will follow up.

June 21 would be perfect.  Next choice would be July 5, then June 7.  If June 7, I need to move things around - the longer lead time available, the better chance I could make it.
