Im not going. Its not because I think its completely stupid and laughable the Illinois USDGC exemption is going to be there, I need to watch Layla.

Good luck everyone, hope someone from this side of Illinois wins the exemption.

(60 pros X $50entry) - (60 pros x $4 pdga fee) = $2760
(This is the pro entry fee based on 60 pros @ $50 each minus the $4 per player PDGA fee.)

$2760 + $3000 = $5760 total purse.

Why the $50 fee? We don't believe you should have to pay a ton of money to play a weekend of disc golf even at major events. At this event the MPO will be playing for just as much of added cash as the entry fees. Tired of playing for each others entries?

Following based on 40% payout:

1 - 1000
2 - 700
3 - 500
4 - 375
5 - 300
6 - 275
7 - 250
8 - 225
9 - 200
10 - 185
11 - 175
12 - 165
13 - 155
14 - 145
15 - 140
16 - 130
17 - 125
18 - 120
19 - 115
20 - 110
21 - 100
22 - 95
23 - 90
24 - 85


What's the aniticapted payout now with 72 open men?


I asked Jon to run a new payout. I'm hoping he has time to get back to it today.

If I were in your shoes and couldn't see the courses i'd get out early Saturday. You are playing blue at 9am. I'd skip holes 1 thru 9 and start on 10. The back 9 is where it's at on this course. The front 9 is open and long.

You should have plenty of time to eat lunch and have a chance to walk/see some of Gold. You definitely want to see #3, #11, #13, & #18 to come up with a plan of attack.

Thanks for the advice. I should be there Friday afternoon now so I might get a few holes in.

So are the front 9 holes more similar to a ball golf course?

The front nine is not easy unless you throw 400ft easily. It is pretty wide open and straight forward. You can see the basket from every tee. There are no tight fairways and you can get away with a mistake. or two.
1. Wide open plays up the hill. Listed at 335 but plays 350 to 360.
2. Road to the right with 2 fairways. Over road or big long turnover shot. 415. Plays downhill.
3. 400 playing uphill. Wide Open with pin tucked under a few trees.
4. 560 throw it past a few trees and pitch it up for 3.
5. Slight hyzer around solo tree. 320 ft playing uphill.
6. 630 with fence to right. Keep it in and get up and down.
7. Striaght to slight turnover shot. Some trees to navigate and thick woods on the right.
8. 570ft playing slightly downhill. Get up and down.
9. 300ft birdie hole. Hyzer over the tree or something up the gut. This is a birdie you will want to get.

I am a 350ish ft thrower. When I play Blue I hope to birdie 2 or 3 of 1, 5, 7, and 9 and take no 4's on the front.

So far so good. I think I like the 2 courses I've played thus far pretty well. Friday they got poured on and the courses were the sloppiest I had ever played. It's finally drying out so I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. Biggest observation thus far is that the scoring spread is amazing. Individual hole scores and overall scores are all over the place. I think the majority of holes are pretty fair. The gold course is definitely tough, but I think somebody will crack 54 at worlds. I also think at least 3 people will 3 the 1120ft hole 8. You heard it here first!

BTW, the 2 meter rule is retarded. Thank Beavis it's all but gone. I have to quote MDR one more time, "Who throws golf shots under 2 meters?"

Clue,
Did you play any rounds with Doug Chilcote? I played a number of rounds with him at Rum Village & George Wilson in South Bend/Mishawaka when I lived out there.

Rob Strasser.

Tournament was good. Brett and crew ran things very smoothly. Everything was on time and the amenities were nice. Loved not having a player's meeting and all the tournament and course info was in the player's guide. Tee schedules were on the guide and Brett was on time for every 2 minute warning and tee off. The Blue and Gold courses were fun and you could tell a lot of work had been done on them. The red course is still blah and isn't for me.

Yeah, we played final round together. He's a pretty good guy. It was nice getting some revenge on him from '04. We played a round at worlds together and he shredded Big Creek on the windiest round of the week. He pretty much tries to make every shot inside of 150 and does fairly often.

AO- what don't you like about the Red? You really enjoy the Blue with its 5-6 or so boring holes? Also, congrats on the putting contest Win, even though it was only for a few discs.

MDR and TJ- Glad yall got to witness my worst ever disc golf round. Thanks for the tips, Mike. My shit is all kindsa f'd up.

Great shooting AO! To be that competitive playing the courses almost blind is incredible. The big rain was unfortunate and I hope it was a fluke because it was definitely sloppy. I second everything else AO said about the schedule and punctuality. Brett and crew ran a great tournament. I actually enjoyed the 2+ hour lunch breaks.

I liked the Blue and Gold as well. I hope to get some revenge on the Gold when I can actually throw a tee shot. I didn't mind the Red as much, but there are definitely 3-4 pretty bad holes. The biggest problem I noticed on all 3 courses was that there were way too many greens without a single tree within 50ft of the pin, especially a few par 4s that didn't have any obstacle for the last 200ft. This puts very little pressure on throwing a good tee shot because you could get up and down from anywhere. That being said there were some incredible holes as well and some real premium on throwing a good drive. The scoring spread on the holes and the courses as a whole were great and yet eventually that all averages out and 220-230 shots later just one shot was difference of a hundred bucks or more.

I had a great time. Looking forward to getting back there for worlds.
