Talk about sandbagging...

I didnt even play in this event, but i considered it...
Im pretty new to the tournament scene, but this is just stupid...

Am2 all shot way better than Am1 and they were playing the same tees.. not mention some of the scores on Am3...

I could say that I would have done alright in Am1, but definitely not in Am2 and that makes no sense. Also I can say I would have needed a REALLY solid couple rounds to even get top 3 in Am3..

Just the way it works out sometimes, good competition brings the best out of you.

Looks like they played different tees the second round.

I think there are a lot of Rec players who are new to tourneys. I've played for 20 years and never played in a tourney and dont belong to the PDGA. I usually shoot even to six under on most courses. What group would I be in?

I'm rated 818 or something and I played up to am3 for this event. Seemed like the top two guys were kinda bagging or hot REALLY hot rounds. I finished somewhere in the middle if the pack, and decided to play my rating yesterday for the doubles tourney at the same course. Ended up winning am4 by a lot and me and my partner got called baggers. I see their point but it's hard to find the right spot to play since I wasn't really that competitive in am3. Oh well. Guess it happens

I was there.

I think some of the tees may have been entered incorrectly as AM1 and AM2 played slightly different tees on Saturday. AM1 played from the Long Tees on both courses, while AM2 played from the Long tees on the Original and Short Tees on the Monster. I believe I saw some typos on the results.

AM3 played the Short tees for both courses. AM3 definitely had a couple of baggers, the hot round in round 1 was (-11) 61 and rated out 1,007. While the hot round in the second round was (-12) 60 that rated out to 996. The top 4 in AM3 was taken by 4 players with no PDGA # or rating.

A lot of comments were deleted from DiscGolfScene by the TD, a lot of bagger accusations from a couple of unhappy players.
