"Thank you very much for the fast responses. I think what I will do is Inform members of the most improved player trophy to help motivate people to continue to play a round well even if they are sure to lose the round BUT, i will also inform them…"
"I was thinking the same thing. If they don't know they are getting an award, there is no way for them to sandbag. All Day Corey makes a great point as well. Perhaps you should use his advice on top of keeping the trophy a secret."
"You can try what the PDGA does with ratings. When the league play is finished, throw out 2-3 of the lowest rounds and than figure out your winner. That way it really does not matter if some has thrown a round or two because those rounds will be…"
Our new league stats ina couple of weeks and I have an idea to award a trophy to the player who improves most throughout the 10 week league period. I know I can look at a players average and determine it from that but how do I get a starting number? Someone give me a hand with this so that i can discourage baggers.

"I too recently discovered this. I try to keep my eye on the target throughout, only to keep me from wanting to overpower it. Also i try to hold back my pull-through speed as long as possible and then speed it up right at the end. It always leaves me…"

Welcome to "DGRUS" - which is what we use as shorthand for www.DiscGolfersR.us. This network was created and is operated by the Calhoun family: myself, Ben, and Sheila. Please don't hesitate to ever provide feedback, and especially let us know of operational problems or of people violating our guidelines, the most important of which is, "Behave as though everyone in here is your friend!"
Among other reasons, we created DGRUS to provide disc golfers with a place on the Web where "On the Internet" does NOT mean "In your face." Please check out the full set of guidelines if you have any questions about that: http://tinyurl.com/DGRUS-guidelines.
The network's value is increased with each new member, especially when they share. So please use the "Invite" feature - http://tinyurl.com/DGRUS-invites - to urge your disc golf buddies to also join.
We'd like everyone who visits - more than 30,000 people a month - to join, but nearly everything is viewable even to those just browsing through. There are various ways for you to control who can or cannot see things that you post, and there are also various ways for you to control the email messages you get (or don't) telling you about things happening in the network. Please do share photos and videos, and join in forum discussions. There are nearly 700 clubs in here and you can start your own public or private one. We love it when members share posts in their blogs. As well, you can use the DGRUS Remarkd Flymart to either sell or buy disc golf stuff.
Never hesitate to contact us. You can use the internal messaging system, the "Report an Issue" button at the bottom of each page, or email us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. If you feel the need, you can even call me at (734) 355-0431.
Finally, please support our supporters, whose advertising you can see on every page. We started this totally as a fun project, but it grew so fast that we could not maintain it without their support.
Thanks for joining us. We truly hope you that this network magnifies the fun you get from disc golf.
