WYCO / Kansas City Wide Open - Thanks

I'll let him know you said that....  

He will play #1 and like it in the short middle placement because the two original placements are off limits until I can cut some length off the pole. It is a new basket and the pole wasn't cut down to fit our old style placements.

Obviously when playing casual you are welcome to play the holes at whatever par you feel comfortable with. The posted par for the course at the Wide Open layout, which was just changed, was a par 57. That was with #13, #14 and #17 set at par 4 and everything else at a par 3. With the current layout I would call it about the same, #13 is over 100' shorter but still mighty long so par 4 is okay there and league averages support that, #14 is an easier 3 but still difficult with the pond and blind corner to get around so leaving it at par 4 makes sense. I will know more when I start getting hole by hole averages in this position. As for #17 it is even longer so it stays par 4.

When playing casual, intermediate, novice, whatever, it is fine to expect a par 4 round but calling things a par 3 for consistency and ease of scoring is just a convenience. Just play and have fun. During a tourney or league par means a lot more than when you are sipping a cold one and enjoying the day with a friend. It becomes a personal issue at that point.

A huge thanks to all the pros that came to town and played at WyCo during the KC Wide Open. I hope you all had a great time. We have been putting a lot of effort into WyCo over the last year in anticipation of the pros being out there and are really proud of how it has turned out. More improvements are in store for the WyCo course so look for more tourneys there in the fuure.

It was awesome to see the most famous faces in disc golf play on the course I call home and shread it. Ken Climo making the jump from the forth card to the lead card with a 7 stroke improvement on his second round was truly impressive. And seeing Chris Sprague shoot an incredible 50 and lock himself in the lead spot for the rest of the tourney was outstanding. I can't imagine shooting a 50 on the 8400'+ course with rope narrowed fairways. Great shooting Chris and congratulations on winning the 23rd annual Kansas City Wide Open.

For all the scores for the National tour click here:

For the scores for the Am KCWO that was held at Swope and Rosedale go here:

Whether you're a local player or just passing through town don't forget to get a round or two in at WyCo. We run league there every Friday evening with a 6:00pm tee off. Simply show up to play. It's an informal league run by the KCFDC and you're welcome to come and play.

I am keeping hole by hole stats all season starting with the KCWO layout. The layout is going to be changing this week though. It's been where it is for six weeks and it's time for a change. Look for #1 to go to long right at the request of Cecil Cameron and #14 will be going across the pond. I plan to move almost every pin that can move so look for a very different course by this Friday.

Finally, a very special thanks to Pat, Mike, Paul and all the guys on the mowers and trimmers of The Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City Kansas Parks Department for all of their help in getting the course looking so nice. It played much better with all that rain thanks to their hard work and support. And no tournament would be possible without the people on the spot doing the important stuff. Major thanks to Tammie Morrison for handling the board and helping me keep my cool when things got weird, Sean Elliot did a great job of keeping things moving on #4 and to Dalton Morrison for spotting on #13 with my good friend Ed Gonzales. Thanks Ed! Also, having Jack out there as the PDGA Marshall with his handy little computer-like device made monitoring the weather a snap. Last but certainly not least, thanks to Master BBQ Chef Paul Eklund for the great eats!!

See you all at WyCo!!

General Banter / Any work on new course/s south and east KC MO area?

I heard talk of something in Blue Springs but that's all I can tell you. I don't know if it's going to happen, has happened or what. The Lee's Summit deal did fall through after it was approved and everything.

General Banter / Topica?
« on: June 09, 2005, 03:46:40 pm »
You should be able to just reply. I noticed you and Jeff both sending to Topica and the reply coming up completely blank. I think the problem lies elsewhere. I reply to Topica all the time without any problems using a Road Runner account and Mozilla Thunderbird. Perhaps it's the e-mail client you are using. I wish I could be more help to you guys.

General Banter / Quess who is coming back soon?

No league this Friday. With the Wide Open playing there on Saturday morning and players meeting Friday evening we are canceling it for Friday of this week. You are welcome to come out and play the course with the ropes that the pros will be using though. I expect there will be some others come out and want to play league. Maybe you can get some sort of $ round going in a casual way. I'll see you next week for sure though.

WYCO / No League on 6/10

League is canceled for this Friday - 6/10.  We will be making last minute preparations for the Wide Open and there will be an 8:00pm meeting for players at Downings.

If you want to play the course the pros will be playing the rope will be set up by then. The course will be open for public play on Friday but not on Saturday.

We don't have maps posted on our website yet but the guys at have some pretty good walk the course pages like this one of Rosedale:

We link to all of them on the Course pages:

I actually have a map of the layout of WyCo. Let me know if you want a copy. It's Word document and kinda simple but effective.

Beginners / Good starter disc
« on: June 07, 2005, 04:42:46 pm »
Buy her a light, 150 class, mid-range.  There are several beginner discs in light weights available.  Try the Aero
or Shark
or even the Classic Roc

The Classic Roc comes in really lightweight plastic. Disc Golf World has lots of this sort of thing and they have retail hours during the day now. Give them a call. I recommend getting one of these and having her stick with one disc until she gets the hang of it. Any of these three will work for her whole game until she is ready to branch out. Have fun and good luck.

"Wedding Advice"

At my granddaughter's wedding, the DJ polled the
guests to see who had been married longest. It
turned out to be my wife and I who had been.

The DJ asked us, "What advice would you give
to the newly-married couple?"

I said, "The three most important words in a marriage
are, 'You're probably right.'"

Everyone then looked at my wife.  She said,
"He's probably right."

General Banter / New Player

Meet by #1 tee pad at the picnic tables there. As far as what disc(s) to bring that's up to you. I recommend a Roc and a putter for beginners but that is up to the individual. The best way to learn the game is to start with no more than three discs and stick with them until you know how to work them before branching out to other types of discs. New Players league tees off around 6:00 I think, but you should try to get there early. There is currently no cost to play.
