I'm trying to perfect some really quick Last Rites, for when I throw a trusty driver over the water and know, immediately upon release, that it's not going to make it. As it is, before the splash I...

Around here, I'm about 5 years ahead of this wave. Each time I qualify for a new age-protected division, there aren't many competitors, but by the time I'm halfway through it, the wave has joined me...

It would be interesting to contrast that with the age distribution of PDGA members, of tournament participants, and any other segment we can quantify. Of course, none of these reflect the age...

If we old folks don't have a division, and care about finishing "in the money", we can play in ratings-based divisions (Intermediate, Rec, Novice). The competitors may be younger, but not...

I understand that, but it seems you would play a little better, relative to the field, if you have the advantage of familiarity or suitability. I know you won't be the only hometown player, but it...

No apology necessary, I didn't read it that way. Or intend that in my response.

The "responses by age" is a little odd, since the age brackets vary in number of years included.

So we get the same percentage for 22-25 (4 years) as 51-60 (10 years).

Thanks. As with many things, our personal and regional experiences differ, and we bring those experiences into these forums.

Anyway, nobody's forcing anyone to compete against people 30 years younger. Nobody's forcing anyone to play at all; it's a voluntary activity.

I don't know where the $5 trophy argument comes from.

Most TDs want I know want to be inclusive as possible (unless there are particular factors to affect the decision).

The difference is that golf has par 3s and par 4s, but not par 2s.

Some people aren't bothered if the pars don't reflect expectations or results---only if they look wrong.

I wasn't there, but I assume it was one of the few ways to separate the tiers, and make the higher tiers "higher".

It doesn't matter to the manufacturer, or the TD's bottom line. It comes out of...
