I disagree that the PDGA isn't interested in live video. I think they're plenty interested in live video, it just so happens that many of their events are in places that makes live difficult to...

None of the manufacturers weigh every disc. They shoot for a target weight, run a bunch, weigh a couple to see if they're close, then mark them all the same. Sometimes they get it right, sometimes...

If they change the par but not the course, of course Paul's score can be challenged. A 48 on that course would be better than Paul's 49, whether they call it -19, -10, -2 or +47.

I imagine FPO (and MPO) will get their cracks at Northwood at Worlds eight weeks later. Maybe that played into the decision-making a bit? It keeps that course fresh for both divisions for Worlds. ...
