Jeff City Open - 10/19/13
« on: October 21, 2013, 09:38:39 AM »
Just wanted to give a shout out to Kansas City Disc Golf as three of the top four finishers in last weekend's tourney in Jeff City were our own!  Arturo took down the open field with Loomis coming in second (with 6 discs in the bag no less) and Joe Hesting in fourth!  Despite some unfavorable tournament conditions and exclusions, the course was still incredibly challenging and there were some really fun holes to play. 

Cheers to disc golf in the state of Missouri with tournaments nearly every weekend!

Great course!  I recommend anybody traveling through Jeff City, stop and play Joseph C Miller.

However if you are a competitive Pro player and see $1000 added cash on the flier for this tournament next year. Do not be fooled (like the rest of us) into thinking this tournament will have a great payout. 

19 Open, 12 masters.  You'd think 31 pros is $1000/31=$32.25 per player added cash.  So $612.75 added to Open, and $387.25 added to masters.

Not the case in Jeff City...They say split it evenly between all fields, so $200 for each division(Open, Masters, Adv, Intermediate, Rec)  Never heard of this in my life.  Ams get paid out in plastic, so if you add $200 cash, to their payout, with the price of at-cost discs, they pocket somewhere between $75-$100 per division.  I'm just  guessing on the amount there.

So anyway, when it is all said and done. 
The Open payout adds up to $941.  19 entry fees=$855
Masters = $577.  12 entry fees=$540
So where did the extra $200 added cash go?  hmmm.  A total of $123 extra added to both Open and Masters combined.  BullS$^t!

Point being-Do not put $1000 added cash on your flier, and pull this.  75% of the pros that came were from KC or St. Louis, and we were all coming for that added cash.

I will say the course was in excellent condition and was very challenging and fun.  BUT finishing at 6:30, and then holding a raffle for 2 hours, while some of us traveling with Ams (waiting on their plastic), have to wait until 8:30 for them to give out merch.  I won't be back, except to play the course again.

Oh, Also, don't say Lunch on the flier, and then have food for sale.  When I see Lunch, I think Lunch provided.  That is like putting Lunch on everyday of my calendar, so I know I should eat lunch everyday.  That is a given.

Here's the basket for #4 at Jeff City - higher than any basket I've ever had to putt on.  This is a basket that you really DON'T want to park underneath!
