54 teams is capping the event to three teams per hole which is 108 players.  I think 3 teams on a hole is as much as the event can take to maintain a quality event.  54 teams is already larger than most single events can hold on 1 course without adding additional holes.

doubles events take longer.  It just does.  You spend more time asking questions, planning thinking, retracing, looking.  The ONLY part that is short is alternate shot, everything else takes longer.

Having this many people on the course will SLOW it down considerably.

Kudos to Scott for attempting this!

Nothing wrong with being slow yet me·thod·i·cal  ;)

Thanks Scott and Jack for your replies. I hope my question did not come across as criticism, I really was just curious.  I haven't participated in a doubles event before, so had not considered the extra time spent talking, planning, etc.  That makes sense.  I was just considering that 3 teams throwing alternate should (in theory, on average) throw the same number of shots as 3 singles, so the time spent actually throwing would be the same.  But it makes sense that "everything else" would take longer.  Now that I think more about it, that's where the teamwork comes into play. The throw execution is still individual, but the strategy and planning between throws is a team effort.

I think this will be a fun event, and I appreciate you taking the players' experience into consideration when planning.  I hope it goes well.  If I don't end up playing, I will come out to watch and maybe shoot video. :)

Could someone from DD check on the registration for my team, Advanced Team 35?

My name, Brian Palmer, is showing as registered, but my partner, Tim Becks, isn't on the list.  The other entry for Advanced Team 35 is blank.

From the pairings I'm seeing in the Open division, it looks like this could be a good opportunity to do some 'spectatin''  8)

Thank you Scott for the time and effort.  Another great event to experience a wide variety of challenges.  54 teams was perfect for that event.

To everyone who "missed out".  I recommend you play in one of these event's.  Playing Alternate and Worse Shot was very challenging to say the least.

Footnote:  Does anyone know if points earned in this doubles event, XB Tier, can be counted towards your Worlds Invite?


I don't see a Points Factor number for an XB  Tier.  I see Major's, NT, A, B, C tier's respectfully and League points factors.

Great Job Scott!!!

All points earned, even in X-tiers and doubles, count toward Worlds qualification. Of course, you want to earn them in Am divisions if you're an Am or in a Pro division if you are a pro.
