I was consistantly called a bagger the whole weekend even though I had the lowest rating in the field. Then at the frozen finale I played what I thought was bad golf and ended up losing by a stroke. Ive been thinking about moving up for smaller tourneys and staying in my rated division for A tiers and such(CAC, and Bowling Green). Think its a good plan?
Congrats! My first official rating was 809, so I had a rough start as well.
That sounds good. I know several people who'll play up for tournaments on home/familiar courses or if there's low turnout.
