It's tradition for the first round to announce the groups at the player meeting so they are kept secret until then. The tee times for the remaining rounds are published earlier.

I know. It's a neat tradition. But it's bad for spectators. And I'd argue a bit unprofessional.

Wait, "unprofessional" is the wrong word. It's just, I don't know, non-major-event-ish. Or something.

Announcing tee times the night before the event is "non-major-event-ish"? Compared to what? What other majors even have tee times? The tee times for day one of USDGC get announced and published at about the same time as they do for day two, three, and four...the evening before.

Not comparing to disc golf events. It's *already* the top of the top in disc golf.

"In other USDGC news, Poole said that the Open and Performance Flights will be mixed for the first day of competition. That means two players from each flight will be grouped together."

Or not.
