Daytona Handicap, New Rules for 2010:

If you have a PDGA player rating, you will be assigned a handicap based on that rating. No need for the three rounds to establish.

If you don't have a rating and a Daytona club member can "vouch" for your skill level a handicap will be assigned. No need for the three rounds to establish.

No Rating and nobody knows you, you must establish. This eliminates players from out of town getting a handicap that's higher than it should be.

Pro/Am Doubles

Pools are split that day based on:
1. Handicaps:
Same handicap= on the bubble= flip for it.
2.Player ability: if no handicap or player rating, pool placement based on the players playing that round. ex: if there are 4 pros and 6 ams, the best am will be placed into the pro division. The "bubble boys" they are called.

Sometimes we do get a player from out of town with no player rating that thinks he is an am, after playing we realize he should have played in the Pro pool. Oh well, those things happen. Rarely, but they do.

Odd Man/Cali Rules:

Pro odd gets one extra throw per hole
Am odd gets two extra throws per hole.
CTP/Metal/Ace only good with first drive.
Odd man wins doubles? gets half the prize money to be awarded, everyone else gets a CTP throw, including the odd man for the other half of the cash.
New Rule established: Odd man can put in another $5 and get all the prize money to be awarded.

New Ace Fund Rule for 2010:
Must be a club member to win an "Ace Fund", if not a member and hit an Ace, player gets the Ace $ for that day.(if they put $ into the Ace fund)
We have had some grumblings about this, but the payout is well worth it. Our club membership fee is only $10. Since the installation of this new rule our club membership has "TRIPLED". Thanks to all for supporting the sport.

We try to accomodate all players the best that we can, by assigning the appropriate handicaps and placing in the correct doubles pool. As all disc golf clubs we are still learning and tweaking to make the best disc golf experience possible. We know we can't make everyone happy, but we sure are trying.

I love the fact that this board is picking up steam! I want to make it very clear. The concept of handicap, when run efficiently, is fantastic. The Barnett handi is incredible. Captain does a great job bringing people in, and when the opportunity arises, he make different side games. For example, the Summer Point Series(would love to see it again) and the Disc Golf U league. I am sure under the direction of the LINKS, the Daytona handi is great as well. You are right Bob, bigger ace $ and CTP's are the benefit. I want to hit that ace, but almost would rather have a newby hit it, to keep them coming back again and again.

high handicaps players = bigger CTP $ and ACE $ for lower handicap players .... SShhhhuurrr!
Comment by Matthew Monczka on February 16, 2010 at 5:53am
I guess lower handicaps is the way to say it.
Comment by Matthew Monczka on February 16, 2010 at 5:52am
I am always excited to see more new players. I go out on Sundays for the opportunity to have fun! But since I am uber competitive, I would love to have some side games for the high handicappers.
Comment by Chris Lenkiewicz on February 15, 2010 at 9:45pm
we all know how the handicaps work, with the new players winning a bunch at first, but the their handicaps leveling out. then a new bunch of new players come through and it happens again. which is great! getting paid for improving. the american dream :) helps keep new players coming back and getting addicted.
Comment by Todd Schenck on February 15, 2010 at 8:57pm
Sorry, I wasn't trying to diss the newer players, as I obviously understand that you have to start somewhere (and I'm certainly happy to welcome anyone getting into disc golf). I was more trying to say something to the effect of what matt and chris have relayed. I'm not a great player myself, but would have needed a -12 Sunday to win. It does make it difficult, but the $500 ace pot is certainly motivation for me to come out. I like the idea of a b-pool. Once again, no offense...

Lots of good golf!!!!! I posted my best score!!!50!! Then lost in the playoff!!!! Second time!!!! Damn it!!!! I will win one!!!!! Those high handicappers are hard to beat!!! I might be giving some strokes now!!!!! Damn it!!! And I suck!!!!! I guess thats means more practice!!!!
Comment by Chris Lenkiewicz on February 15, 2010 at 8:11pm
it's tough for us pros to win a handicap from our A Pads.
Competing against, -10, -11, -12 and higher handicaps.
Like ya said, have to shoot an awesome round and hope the others are off that day.
Tough knowing you are giving up 12 or more strokes before you start.
The ams do get better and their handicaps do eventually catch up with their ability.
Still the best way to balance everything out

I ran an event last year.
Double Elimination tournament.
Random Draw for starting bracket, the difference in handicap was converted to mulligans for the other player. ex: CLenk, +4 handicap vs Jim -5 handicap. Jim got 9 mulligans to use in the match up.
Pretty cool format. Took about a month to complete though.
