The NT MPO division is down to 3 spots. We will go to a wait list after that. Hopefully, we can add 8 more ladies to fill that pool.

After going through past statistics of Wide Opens through the years, I found that this is the largest MPO division we have had since 2003, in which there were 75. The following year was the first year of the National Tour. So that makes this the largest MPO turn out in KC Wide Open National Tour history.

Pretty cool.

Since we split the Pro Divisions up between the NT and the A Tier there has been a steady decline. I don't understand why to tell you the truth. We actually are able to pay out more money to Age based Pros by doing it this way, but I assume people want the accolades.

Looking at the caddy book right now...

Is the A Pool at WyCo Shotgun or Tee Times? Says two different things between the pools schedule page and the WyCo Map page-



EDIT: Found a couple more small things as well, par discrepancies and such.

Nice.  There will be an insert in all the caddy books with corrections.

A Pool will be on shotgun at WYCO and TEE TIMES AT BV.

I have a question about #9 at Wyco.  Caddy book shows the OB on left and right goes all the way to the road (straight ahead).  I just played there and it's painted OB short of the road.  It cuts in front of the the pin that is  straight ahead.  So is the caddy book wrong?  I get the OB on the left and right.  I don't understand it straight ahead when you have the road there.

The caddy book shows the way I described to Dick several weeks ago how I would lay it out.  However, I forgot what I told him and laid it out in the slightly less forgiving formation as is painted. Dick has told me to fix it to match the caddy book.  It shall be done.

I threw an absolute fantastic shot that was parked on other pin and was out of bounds.  I thought as long as I throw a straight shot I will be fine.  Guess not.   Stupid artificial ob.  Makes courses look gimmiky when it's unnecesary.  Wyco is a fantastic course and plenty difficult without it.

I played at Rosie today and the grass is getting out of control. It's above the ankles everywhere. Do you know if the city will be out to mow before this weekend? I had to look for a while for several discs that were out in the open so it will definitely slow the play down if it's not mowed.
