Roger that!

I'll be making the drive next weekend.  Camping at Ted's Dred ok on saturday night?

Super long tees at Wyco?  Who can hang with this?  Are they gonna set up Ted's Dred on long tees/ long pins for the second round?  That's a par 70 course!

Gonna be a blast.  I'll try to round up some fellow Kansans for these events.  See you there!

What a great day for disc golf at WyCo! A gentle breeze that some thought of as windy and 39 golfers ready to throw. Thanks to Rick Rothstein for the challenging rope on the second round and LaRon Harris for helping Rick come up with some of the design. I heard nothing but good things about WyCo and the 4th Annual Kan-U-WyCo. Thanks go out as well to the KDGA for making this an Oz Tour event. This helped make it the biggest Kan-U-Wyco ever with an attendance of 39. Thanks to all you "outstaters" for coming to WyCo!!

Wyco was great!  Rick and Laron's rope was a big success.  I like how it wasn't used on every hole.  I liked how it followed existing tree lines.  I liked how it was used on the open holes to add a challenge to the players' accuracy.  Me and Iqbal both 3'd the 800' OB Monster #13.  Imagine that hole with a headwind, hehe.  I'll be curious to see how the touring players do on this course.

I had some thoughts for Rothstein or KCWO course designer on hole #8.  I don't know if he reads here, but I forgot to give him feedback at the tournament.

If you took the ropes back just another 8-10 feet on each side of the hole, it might make a better hole.  My reason is variety of score.  Part of course design is making holes that pose a good deal of chance for birdie or bogie.  While Water Works may be my favorite course in the area due to it's beauty, course ammenities, and fun shots, one could argue that a course like Ted's Dread offers much more scoring variety.

Right now a player can play safe and get a 3 or go for it and make a pretty easy OB 3.  With the ropes out a little further, longer 2's and circle 4's will be more common, but the hole may look a little less intimidating.  Just a little thought.  I think the ropes on most other holes were in ideal locations.  The bunkers on 15 and 6 opened my eyes to what can be done in course design to make courses more challenging.  With enough time and money, a more natural looking OB could be permanently installed in a lot of currently "easy" open courses to make more challenge.  I really like what was done at Swope.
