Team Tournament - April 4th

Postby Clue » Mon Feb 16, 2009 9:05 pm

Here is an update on the team rosters. Right now I am under the assumption that we are only sending 2 teams. This has made it very difficult in deciding who is going to fill out the last handful of spots as there are in upwards of 20 people who could arguably be worthy of these spots.

The 2 rosters consist of 10 open players, 6 players with ratings of 960 or less, 2 players of 40 or older (this calendar year), and 2 women.

I think we have the Masters, women, and open spots pretty well secured, but the Adv spots are wide open. For those who are interested, I will automatically lock up a spot for the top 4 finishers at the OPC in Oskaloosa on March 14th regardless of the division you play in as long as you fit the criteria of being rated 960 or less and you are playing the same tees as the Adv field.

That will leave me with 2 captain's picks to fill out the rosters in case there's 1 or 2 glaringly obvious players left. Please contact me if you have any questions.

It's about that time and registration is pretty much closed for Oskaloosa. It looks like there are only about 7-8 guys vying for 4 spots. Just to clarify ahead of time, if one of the 4 chooses not to play, that spot is *not* necessarily going to go to the next in line. That bid will become another captain's pick. So make sure if you want to play that you make that top 4 and don't leave it out of your hands! Good luck everyone. I hope everyone is getting excited for this. The pros have been hounding me about who the Adv guys are going to be. We need you guys to be playing well.

This is not playing out like I had hoped. Too many guys are not getting into Osky or are elsewhere. I'm reducing the spots being played for to 2 for Osky. The other 4 are going to be at large. There may be 1-2 pro spots we'll need to fill with Adv guys as well with one guy already dropping out. I still really like our teams. I played with Mikal the other day and he's going to be a force this year. Claring is playing better. And Joe T is Joe T. There are still several more very good guys out there and I can't wait to round out this roster soon.

You're the standard. When disc golfers dream, they dream they are Joe T.

I dreamt I was Joe T. once. Parked hole #6 at Southwoods, aced #7, and got a deuce on #8. Got to hole #9 and the five-oh busted me for "tearing" up the course.
NO!......Welp!?

So will one team be the guys who are playing well now? Top 10 on one team or will it be divided?

All the guys that are better than me are going to be on one team, and the rest of them that are better than me will be on the other team.

Yep, you're the auto bid for the A team, so Joe will be the B team.

I don't mean to ignore you, but I just don't know yet. I should have everything squared away by Monday. The more I've been playing with some of these guys, the more I'm getting excited about this tournament. We have a lot of people playing really well. It's nearly impossible to even assess who is the 10 best if I wanted to do it that way.
