Does anybody remember when we were having dicussions about pro's giving clinics this summer.  That was a cool idea.

;D. If the NFL was like the PDGA
The Kansas City Chiefs could play the Kansas Jayhawks a fewtimes a year and kick their tail everybody else does...
But then everybody would say they had little balls
Heck high school teams could move up and beat the Jayhawks..
What. That is so poorly written that as a KU fan I can't even be upset. Try again.

Joe - this is not a ball buster, just my thoughts...

I think the intention for the MAC is to give Ams the experience of playing in a larger tournament without paying a $100 entry fee.  Tee times for instance are never utilized for a C or B tier.  Sometimes A, but not B or C. 

With larger tournies, such as GBO, Shunga Nunga, etc., tightening up the fairways and extending them is part of the tournament experience.  Admittedly, I tend to shoot below my rating on longer holes, mandos, OB rope, etc.  However, I enjoy them more when they are utilized in a tournament.  If I want to play the normal course, I go to league or have a casual but serious round with my friends.  For tournaments, I personally want the difficulty kicked up a notch.

Rob, I did not think you were busting my nuts, and your comments were quite good. I asked the question hoping to get answers and I certainly did. This may be the first time on this forum somebody has changed my mind. I was trying to get an idea if most people at tournaments like it more of a challenge or it they would rather have it left alone. I also understand that it is up to the people running the tournament what they wish to do and that they probably try to make it as fun as possible for the majority.

So in agreement, we have so many courses, everyday anyone can play casual with friends, casual/serious with friend. We have leagues everynight and you can choose large leagues or smaller more homey leagues. And we have challenges, tournaments, and or doubles almost every weekend. So life is very very good.  So yes, in the future I will do a better job of finding out exactly how a tournament will be before I sign up. Like at the Wide Open I knew that Swope and Wyco would be set up long and it was excellent.

So in disagreement with some comments on here.

Joe H, who wants to play the same courses over and over.  Me, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I wanted different ones last weekend so I played a tournament in Nebraska.

Anthony P, I think having it set in different ways helps even the playing field. On my trip to Nebraska nobody was concerned about making it fair for me. I went there because I wanted to play them at their place.

Rob M, you shouldn't bust Jeff O's nuts. You know he is up for a challenge at any time. And the comments from everyone about harder layouts will make you better: everything we do in disc golf makes us better. Lets see, if I throw in a field I will get better, if I throw tight courses like RosieDU I will get better, if I play with better players and learn from them I will get better, if I putt in my garage I will get better. Adding two holes to Waterworks and making some longer, not so sure that helps.

With all that said, I can't wait for the tournament.


I have a question for anyone who has ran a tournament or set one up. Why do holes have to be added and the course changed around. Waterworks is a well know course and a place people want to visit to play. Then they get here and it is a whole different layout.  I understand for pros and open players, but this is for an amateur championship.

;D..The lingo...LOL
Wait till you start playing tournaments..and see..all the..sandbaggers in..all the divisions..This..league changing deal..smells. like a jayhawk in Missouri..
I was wondering what BYOP was as a lot of ideas went through my head bring your own partner did not. still trying to get the lingo down
Sounds like Missouri... has plenty of their own idiots..., so I guess you didn't need... to bring up... Jawhawk lovers.

Rob, the league was excellent. Thanks for running it and all your work.

Change it to Wyco 1 vote, cant get off work.  :'(

4. I like this idea. Can I be first in line, I would like Paige Pierce, Catrina Allen, Valarie Jenkins, Ragna Bygde, or Jessika Edvardsson.

4a. Yes, if you want to play with open players you should play in open.

4b. I don't know any.  It has been awesome at the Wednesday league getting to play with open and advanced players. Hopefully
      the touring pro's will like this idea.

Yes it would, and in a lot of the pictures they are within 10 feet of the basket.

I'm not sure I would put myself, Jamie Danger, and knotted up all in the same sentence. ;D

I played HORRENDOUS yesterday, especially after the rain delay, but had a good time in T-Town!

Maybe G$ put a hex on you for the last round.
