You're just pissed because I won't send you my wizard collection :lol:

And Chuck...yes I think there should be a bump rule for player ratings....even if you are only 14. If you are carrying a 988 rating and 14...you pretty much have game and can play with the big dogs.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

I almost think that you should not have to, because at 14 and 988 you are almost all skill and no mental game. So to be thrown in with the top pros in the world you would find that you lack the maturity needed to be competitive. Maybe if you are 16 have been in the PDGA for at least 5 years and a rating >970 then maybe.

I almost think disc golf is growing and this is the beginning for a need of a new division for guys that are young and good (amateurs, semi amateurs, pro or something like that). As the sport grow we will have much more players like this who will be out of place in pro or amateurs.

hey chuck
I was looking at the tee off times for the first day and noticed that almost no two players over 1000 were on a card together. So I was thinking about how they are broken up. Is the whole group of players put in order of best to worst and then broken into groups and the top people in each group are on a card? Or is it something like; the best, the worst, and the best in the second group and the worst in the third group all on a card? OR maybe all the ratings added for each card have to come close to equaling the same number? etc... can you give me some info on this? Thanks Chuck.

Except Wiggins has won pro events in NC already, lol.

I don't mind the higher rated players playing. There will always will be baggers....

I think wiggins should have a chance at am1. The question is whether he'll play in pro worlds soon. Dave sr has said that little wiggins doesn't want to mess up any chance at college scholarship money in the hope that disc golf will become a collegete sport. I think it would be cool to see him compete as an am in pro worlds. Kind of a Bobby jones moment.

Just met Matt hall on number 12 at thonfield. It was his first hole of his round; he threw a nice tight hyzer, and canned a 40 ft downhiller from the woods. Man, he's got a nice puttig stroke.

Just for Jesse: I just watched jesper throw on 12 at thornfield ( I'm spotting it); I think he threw a trident on a high tight hyzer.

Avery drains a Bomb from 45 for the only birdie on the lead card.

They rank the players down to however many groups will be needed for Open, probably around 33 or 34 this year. Top rated in group A, second rated in group B. Then usually they just randomize the other three in each group.

How about Climo shooting a 995 rated round? Avery up by 6 after 3. Coda still in the hunt in 8th.

Thornfield is a course that will eat you for dinner if you're not accurate with your driving. I expected Ken to dominate on a course like that; his poor round kinda surprised me. Nikko shot a 49 out there, which is pretty sick.

So I was at the flymart...here's a quick run down of what was interesting:

1. Sweet Star Roc - given to all the ams; a 20th anniversary Star Sanny.

2. X Forces - super thin flight plates. I bet these things fly for days. In weights 167-169.

3. The Terminator - Quest's new super stupid fast disc. They had it marked as a 15. Very shallow rim like the defender, giant wing, and a real bullet shaped wing (like the proto quarter K's).
