Nice shooting Tom!

We did all right on the front 9 with a -5, but was unable to capitalize on the back 9, shooting a -7 to finish in 2nd place in the A division.

I saw a 44 on the board as well.  Who shot that?

My girlfriend Kate and her partner Jamie from HNTB did tie for 1st in the C division with last years champions from Harley Davidson.  Her partner had never played before (at least with a disc golf disc) and Kate has only played a few times.  IMO I may have had a little training session with them before it started :).  No ego here thank you.

We had record setting rounds in Women's KCCC also...Bethany? from Garmin shot a 60 playing as a single...then later in the afternoon, Christy Svedja and her partner from American Century shot a 59 to be the first Women's team in the 50's in KCCC history.

Coming in do a bit of bragging :). Honeywell brings home first in B with a 44. I think we my have psyched ourselves out of better scrore, we realized we were -10 by hole 13, then parred out 14-18.

BTW, why the short tees this year? I understand 13 and maybe 14, but short tees on 5, 11 and 18 messed with my head.

The male Team Garmin had an excellent time.  I'm particularly glad we'll be bringing home the Gold since Bethany managed it all by herself.  Thanks to Rick and Dan and everybody else who put this on.

CC has always used the short tees.  Keep in mind that 60-80% of the competitors are rec players at most, so the course needs to be as friendly as possible.

The short tee on #11 is tougher than the long IMO because of the way the line sets up.

Swope is a pitch and putt.  I hate playing here.

I do .  You are right.  But that doesn't mean I haven't played it plenty of times to come up with that conclusion.

Have you shot from #11's short pad?  You don't think the hyzer is tighter?

I think the shot to the basket is easier.

Then you throw it on that straight/slight turnover judging by your vague response.
