Glad we got to actually hang out a little up in BG. St
i played with Tokio during the tournament. I personally dont feel that he was bagging. he is new to the game, Who would want to step up to advance and play against some of the best ams in the world when you first start. He just threw good solid golf, it was that he was way to good for the division he just threw solid. Good job man!
One stroke win = CRUSHING the int. field. LOL
Atl Open = 33 players, Home Course/Traning Grounds
Bowling Green = 160 players, Stepped Up to a new tee every throw

I do agree with you on that Kade you know I am in the same sort of situation as you. Right at the line where you can finish top three in INT and get called a bagger everytime or go Up to ADV and hope you cash. When you go and play these courses out of town or in the blind that has to be taken in consideration. I will play ADV next week at our home town tourney. KADE I HOPE YOU BRING A CREW UP!!!! But when I went to ATL or Carolina the two a tiers I played INT. If we lowered the PDGA dues for everyone and made them have a number to play in tourneys then I think you could alleviate some of this but it might turn away some newbies but It would motivate them to get a number to compete. Its a hard pill to swallow either way if you are the bagger or bagged on so lets remember why we started playing. Cuz Disc golf is fun. That was probably my last BG to anyway. Those guys up there make a KILLING on that tourney so I chose to stay home and get no pay out. St
I had a great time in BG even though I didnt play well. It was my first out of state disc golf road trip and it was cool to see people I know! Being that my game has hit a plateau, my rating went up to 936 then back down to 926 and to 931. I have to deal with this due to my skill level. I dont mind. When playing at courses Ive NEVER seen Ill certainly play int. In Atl. I'll play advanced. In the last 9 months I found this kid Tokio and I thought he's got potential. We play together now and he based his placement on where I was b/c we scored similarly. He was new and thats all he had to go on. He'll learn soon enough for himself, surpass anything I could do, and be a pro before we know it.
I started playing disc golf last summer. Blaine is in our club, Me and everyone that played bowling green can tell you what he can do with a "Comet". So anyone out there thinking he's a Bagger, no way, he has SKILLS.
