Last year I played Gold on the Friday (2 days) before Doubles took place. Course was fully prepped and in great shape. Really cool experience; met a few of the touring pros (Paul Ulibarri was genuinely nice to me) who were in town getting prepped for USDGC. I'll be out there again on the Saturday (hopefully for a double round) before Doubles this year.

Is there a way to tell a disc's weight without a gram scale?

I bought a few discs at my local play it again sports and the disc weights were not listed.

Accurately? No.

What NuNinja said.
You can purchase an inexpensive model at any big box type store (Wal-Mart, etc.) that will be fairly accurate. If you are looking for exact weight, those units will cost a little more.

Even if the disc had the weight written on the back of it, I believe that it is usually wrong due to the factory weighing multiple discs and taking the average. Best way to get the true weight is to weigh it yourself.

If you don't want to buy a postal or kitchen scale to weigh your disc, you can always go to the grocery store at an off time. I've had cashiers weigh items for me before at the checkout. :-)

Alright this is something I should know, but I'm not completely sure on as I haven't really started to do tournaments yet.

I was looking at the scores from DGLO and the top pros are finishing 20-30 under while the AMs are finishing at 6 under at best.. Are the pros playing at different pars for the holes? It would seem that if the Am's are playing at par 3 for every hole over 3 rounds then -6 would make sense... But -30 on par 3 over 3 rounds for every hole is a bit ridiculous.

Am I missing something here? Even looking at the scoring for the pros some of the holes are shown as a a par 4 or par 5...

What is the par for the am players?

The pro players are that much better.
