I bet you are referring to me and my team as one of them.

Intermediate baggers
Me 907 rated
Caleb 902 rated
Scotty 891rated

I guess in the QC being approximately 900 rated means you should be playing advanced


I think that's a QC cultural thing. So many good courses, and so many good golfers. Lots of peer pressure.
The "Bagger" thing is mostly just something to say. Ratings will move you up like it or not.
I've had a lot of fun in intermediate. I've been playing there for 4 years, and lots of guys have left me behind (moved up). I miss them because they were fun too. Most intermediate teams are right where the PDGA says they should be. <935.
If one doesn't have "the fever" (mentally) or the physical ability to continually improve and just wants to play "kinda good" and enjoy the day what's wrong with that? Maybe that's why int is the biggest class. It stands to reason that the higher the skill level, the fewer the players.
There has to be a lot pressure of playing each shot with the concentration necessary to excel in the higher divisions. To some that might not = fun.
I'd love to be on the same card w/ Matt, Caleb and Scotty. Good players to be sure, probably beat us, but "last cash" buys plastic as well as first place. Just not as much.
I would ask, just don't bag in rec. :oops:
As for playing pro vs advanced? That's a call I'll never have to make.

I am an amateur player that pays money to play disc golf. I play disc golf because its fun. I don't practice because that's not fun. I understand that I will not get better if I don't practice, but that's fine with me. What's also not fun, is paying more money to play in a division where I am just going to get my ass kicked. That's demoralizing and a waste of money. Of the 30+ tournaments I have played, I would have gotten last cash in advanced in two of them. That's a 96% chance that I will not cash. I would rather play with people of my same skill set. That's the who reason there are divisions in the first place. I play more tournaments than anyone else in the state, so I am pretty certain that my rating is accurate to my skill level. That's why I am getting sick of all of this bullshit about bagging or needing to move up. Yes, I have been playing better lately and my rating reflects that since I just became over 900 rated for the first time in three years. But this by no way means I am guaranteed to win or even cash in intermediate. Its not the intermediate players' fault that the advanced field is small. Like I said earlier, there are just more intermediate players than there are advanced level players.

Shiz...... I was hoping that the + after 970 under classifications would negate that. I petition to someone, anyone!
