When the decision is made as to what the Advanced Men group is going to do tomorrow morning could you please post it here?  As I understand it, as of right now we are teeing off to finish our round at 7:30, then moving to Waterworks.  I guess we'll see if they can get that power line fixed by tomorrow morning.

On another note, I saw Nikko took a 3 on 9 at Blue Valley.  I didn't think that was possible in the current pin setting.  Did he take the normal route and just throw a bomb anny drive over all the trees?

Forgive me if this has already been answered recently, but have the baskets been put out for the Swope Gold layout?  If not, will they be out by Sunday?  Thanks!

So it's 1-1 but east side is still up 36.5-27.5 in aggregate?  Good to know east side is still in the lead.

I'm going to be up in the Colorado Springs area in about a month.  Any recommendations on courses I should hit when I'm up there?

Due to the rapid increase in registration, we are going to split the courses to allow more players.  There will now be 2 pools with one pool playing one course while the other pool plays the other course and then switches for the second round ...  if you are planning on playing please pre register still to make for a smoother check in process on the day of the event.

Scott, thanks for splitting the pools.  Playing 90 on one course at a time would have been brutal.  Splitting will probably shave 30-45 minutes off each round.

I will not have the complete CC set up until the week before. Most holes will be set in the CC placements, but not at all. Some holes have the red practice pin in the CC placment and the flags are longer for a longer option. I am sure CC players can handle that since PDGA players only expect the course set the week before NT or A tier events.

I know I'm probably being wildly optimistic here....but are you planning on setting the course for the CC by this weekend?

It's seems to be a trend to play as slow a round as possible in tournaments.  Pick up the pace folks.  It has far less to do with pre-throw routine than it does with so many people walking the course like they are helping their 105 year old grandma around.  This isn't casual rounds people.  Slow play, which includes moving from shot to shot and green to tee, is a violation of the rules.  Refer to the competition manual, which you got in your PDGA packet.:


I completely agree Tracy.  I like to play a round in 70-90 minutes, so playing a tournament round that's 3+ hours (and sometimes 4+ hours) can be absolutely brutal.  While I understand there's going to be slower play in tournaments, especially  in full tournaments with a variety of skill levels, the duration of many rounds seems to border on the extreme. 

Given that it only takes one slow group to hold up several behind them, I would love to see tournament officials discuss speed of play in the players meeting.  Let everyone know that if a group comes up on a hole 15 minutes behind the group in front of them, and an official is present, they'll be receiving a warning.  If they don't speed it up, stroke em!  Addressing this proactively before rounds would help set the tone, since I would imagine warnings and strokes for pace of play are very rare.  Additionally, I believe quicker rounds would add to the overall enjoyment of an event like the KCWO, as it would allow more time at the end of the day to enjoy various other KCWO activities, instead of just wanting to go home after 7 hours of competition over two rounds.
