We can't get Citibank to sign up, although I'm going to try for next year. Otherwise, you're all meat. :) Actually, I have no idea who else plays disc golf in the building, but there are a couple of Innova stickers on cars in the parking lot, so there's at least a couple of players. we've got 2700 employees in the building, and I know there's some CitiFinancial branches around town, so we'd be in A Division for sure.

Missouri....our state animal is sterile, our state rock is lead, and we elected a dead guy to the U.S. Senate.  Of course, he was the best candidate.

Honeywell will be back in A after a short stint in B last year, which we won with a 44.  However, my partner from last year is in Austin going to grad school and I don't know if I will be able to play in it this year.  Depends on the tee times, I coach my kids soccer teams and we have 3 total games scheduled on that weekend.  I've played in it the past 3 years (1st, 3rd, and and 5th).  It's always fun, but I wish the layout was a little tougher.  Using majority of short pins with short tee pads (where available) at Swope makes for some low scores.  I understand why and I can't tell you how many people I have talked to who have gotten in to disc golf because of corporate challenge.  And for me, it was my first foray from recreational player to avid player who plays tournaments.

John - I am one of those players here in the Citi building.  I do not think that we will ever get the CC here, but we can wish! I also work part time at Harrrahs and think I am in the running there for the CC this year!

Maybe over lunch we can toss some discs out by the pond! Good to know there is another disc golfer here.... :)

Cerner won A division with a 47.  I don't remember any of the other divisions' results.

I don't remember their names. They said they only play once in a while. They only parred holes 1, 14, and 17. Birdies everywhere else.

Wow, a 39?  So much for me making the course any easier for the men next year...

You have to play more than 'once in a while' to birdie #3, #9, #11, and #16.  Those are 970 rated birdie holes.

Actually, after reading Tom's post, I do seem to recall that two or three years ago, there were a couple of guys working there that told me the same thing.  I don't recall their names, but, they did play, just not very often.  Now.....whether that's a true statement by them, who knows.  ::) ;D ::)

I talked to them as they were leaving...Chris Rizzo and Dan Youngblood I believe...I think Chris got hot putting, said he hit #3 from behind the blue spruce  :P...sounded like they just had good team synergy, with Chris putting well and Dan driving well.  Didn't sound like they played that often...

Honestly, I was surprised that there weren't more lower scores than there were.  The conditions were calm and that course was just ripe for the taking.  We had putts inside 40 feet on 14 holes; just couldn't convert enough of em!

Division B had Federal Reserve winning with a 43.  My team (Waddell & Reed) got 2nd with a 47.  I believe Bayer came in 3rd with a 48.

I was part of a four way tie for first in Division G.  That score was a 48 and we should have made it 46 but we botched a few birdie putts.  But you still get the same amount of points for a tie!
