So, i just found a reason that "sand bagging" could occur. A disc golf acquaintance of mine, just started getting much better. He started the fall series (8 tournaments in like 3 months) as REC. When he started, he was def an REC player.
BUT...he's been playing a lot, and with tons of different, better players, so his skill level is jumping a lot, he is a solid INT player now. He won the last REC tournament, got 2nd in the one before that. Will likely do the same the rest of the series (3 more events)
If the only event you go to and play REC is one of the next 3, you will yell BAGGER.....but if he moves up he'll lose the series just because he improved? Doesn't feel right to call him a bagger, ya know?
i'd never thought of this until this tournament.
