You know you're a bagger if you finish second in Pro Master one week and finish 7th of 200 in Intermediate at Bowling Green the next week!

You know you're a bagger if you've won B-tiers in Advanced and C-tiers in Pro Master and unsanctioned tournaments in Open Pro, but you play Bowling Green Ams in Intermediate!

Oh, yeah. I know I'm a bagger. And proud. When i play PDGA I play in whatever division they say i can that I think will be fun that day. If they say I can play Am 2 and it looks like it will be fun, there you go.
You know you're a bagger if...

your name is Kevin Gomez!
ouch...that's gonna leave a mark!
the million dollor question i often find myself being called a bagger and i think i am a bagger but i am only playing the division my rating is but after winning bowling green i think im going to move up for most tournaments except a teirs i dunno if i will be making the right move but i deffinitly play advance calliber golf majority of the time and if i played advance i always will be in the top half of the field but i dunno i think that everyone should play there division that are rated for and there wouldnt be any bagger it would be way more competitive the biggest problem is the pro thing there arnt not enough awesome pro players to keep advance players from moving up because they know if they move up they can win cash even though in all realitly they arnt pros the pro division just is not strong enough but i dunno i just felt like i would throw that out there

I didn't know they started another thread about Kevin Gomez LOL
I'm confused, I throw no further than my group of Am's, I throw no more accurate than my group of Am's, however, I score better or more consistant. But I am the Bagger. Now on any given day, you will not see me kick my bag, throw it down, launch discs into the woods (intentionally) or throw tantrums. I keep a consistant, level head, of course I swear and get mad at myself for the errant shot) but never loosing my cool or quiting, I always try and overcome. But yet, I am the bagger. The night before a tourny, I think the whole course over in my head, I play out my shot in my mind while on the tee, and even after smacking a tree, I visualize how I can recover and keep par. I never have to many birdies, mostly pars, but yet I am the bagger. I carry only 5 discs and a putter because I now what I can do with each disc (or what is supposed to happen with each disc) but I know my game, and still, I am the bagger. My game is not better than many of the group I play with but maybe my strategy is, I dont know. But if this makes you a bagger, than I am happy with the nickname "#1 Bagger".
Good point but your still a Bagger
You are a very good player that is consistent. You hold the #1 Bag Tag as an amatuer and will probably hold it for a while. If you can score with the middle of the advanced or pro players consistently, then why play at the amatuer level? My scores are at the top of the amatuer but at the bottom of the advanced. I worked from the bottom of the amatuer to the top. It's time to do it again.

If I offend or hurt, then I apologize for it is not my intent. You should not be confused. Your score will show you what to do. You need a nickname that is not #1 Bagger. It is meant as a joke, but it was just too damn funny. Frodo Baggins, Paper or Plastic, Sandy, Bagger Vance, Wisconsin Baggers, Allergic to Green, .....ahh hell I can't think anymore.

Mystery is now Mysery. I will lose again, but the wins will be so much sweeter.
I would say in a way being called a bagger is a small compliment. You have to be moderately good to be called one. However it's tough to be called a bagger in OPEN. But.... I would say that people being called a bagger are aren't always that consistant, at least in the AM2 or 3 division. They have the ability to throw good rounds, but they don't always do it. I see those guys in the intermediate division throwing a 930-970 rated round and then coming back for rd2 and tossing a 895 rated round. They don't usually feel like they can compete, but playing in a lower round usually gives them a 2 stroke advantage. All I know is go out there to have fun, and if you don't like what's happening... then do something about it and get better.
this is what i was trying to say at a local course i play 2-3 times a week i can have a scores ranging from 3down to 11over in a total of 6 rounds i know how to play im just not consitent
here's the way i see it. "{bagger- someone who doesn't want to challenge them self, instead they want free plastic." is it cool? no. are they sweet? no. does that change their opinion? no. in my opinion baggers rob themselves of what they could achieve. i was called a bagger when i won an am int. division but that was the last tournament i played at that level. not because of someone labeling me as a bagger, but because i felt that i needed to play at a higher level to get more out of the tournament. i have yet to win any adv. tourney, but i can say that i have had more fun playing long tees and better courses because of the move. if one does not want to challenge them self and play the game to really compete then they will bag forever and may not care, but if one is true to the sport and wants to become a better player year after year and improve on their game they won't bag, rather move up and take the hit of not getting payed out afterwards until they improve to the next level.
