I was wondering about that. If so, I'd guess far more disc golfers will watch it later, than live.

Wonder if that will count towards the 25,000? Wonder if I were to check it out multiple...

I don't think the ADGT has any payout standards. If correct, it's up to the TD. He's free to use the PDGA formula, and that could well be all he's doing---and wisely announcing it well in advance...

And all the fun stuff we discussed a couple of hundred posts back. Or maybe they'll take our suggestions to heart and tighten them up by then.

I think I'm missing something here. How it is a qualifier if anyone can sign up? Isn't it more like, the winner gets a paid entry as part of his first place prize?

I mean, I ran qualifiers for...

I do all of the above.

In casual rounds, it's over/under-3, in my head without a card. On a tough course where I'm scoring in the 70s or 80s, I've tried over/under-4, but the "3" is so ingrained...

Who knows. 25,000 seems like an awfully large number for disc golfers, and an awfully small number nationwide, or worldwide.

It's hard for me to imagine 25,000 disc golfers tuning in---or...

Generally true, though if you were with me when I'm shooting in the 70s and 80s, you'd see that "over/under 3" can be made difficult by the right player, and course.

The wording that I'm sometimes troubled by, sometimes see abused, is "nearest lie". I've seen people taking any lie within 5 meters, sort of like you do on the meter relief from O.B.
