So - who's done the Field Events at large tournaments like this?  Particularly the EDGE Skillshot Challenge.  What were your thoughts on it?

Soooooo....the Am worlds is going to a trophy only this year for the first time in Emporia. ......and hopefully you have seen the article on the home page of the PDGA website- titled "the true amatuer". I realize this doesnt mean anything for the touring pros- but as an amatuer, what does this really mean? I think some more clarity can be brought to this topic. I am getting some negative vibes from some of my other fellow amatuers......  Did this "change"  get implemented strictly from the ideas of Jeremy Rusco and Brian Graham?

What I read is that it's the same model as what is used for GBO.  So basically instead of payouts to top 50% and small player's pack, you get a kick ass player's pack and they payout the top 20%.

- learn how to drive from grass tee pads.
 - learn how to gauge distance in open space.
 - go practice putting in high wind areas.
 - learn how to use short grass skips/flare shots to your advantage.
 - learn how to use a roller.

And don't go OB

Rollers are a much needed advantage on the golf course.  It made the difference for me last year for certain.  I have played on a golf course though probably about 20 times or so, so it helps to have that frame of reference.  Loomis is right on, but the OB's are killer out there, that cost me the win for certain last year.  I couldn't get out of OB's on the COuntry Club or Jones, I did ok on Muni though....

OB killed me at Jones.  For 2012, I had my worst rated round at Jones on Friday, and my highest rated round at Muni on Sunday, even with the super duper killer winds.  Luckily that flying cow just missed us.

Keep in mind, I am a solidly Rec rated player.
