You expect a decent amount of variation. I'd guess the same layout, same conditions, same time of year, etc., two round will still have different SSAs by 5-10 points on average. The variation should...

The last hole is 800ft steep downhill. Izak turned his disc enough that it was about 100 feet right of the basket and 100 feet deep. He then ran his second shot (from probably 350 out where he went...

How did he eagle 2, put it in from a ways out? Hole 6 is definitely eagleable, but a 2 on hole 2 is pretty crazy.

That hole is easily the most boring hole I've played over 800 feet. The wooded holes at Pinto are cool, but the field holes are a snoozefest.

My two gripes with Milo are:
- there are no long wooded holes

Most of the east coast wood monsters have both of these features. (Another more minor complaint would...

The "Touring Pro" label actually includes the best local players. One way to qualify for "touring pro" is to meet the following criteria:

In order to get a pro worlds invite, you do have to be signed up for the pdga as a pro. (which isn't to say there aren't lots of people classified as "pro" who have zero chance of winning pro worlds).

In PDGA play you always have the option of rethrowing from your previous lie for a 1 stroke penalty. Using that option would probably be better than the local rule most of the time anyway.
