Very true. One mistake in comparing nations, is the assumption that they were all at the same starting line. How early they were hit, and their population density, affect their subsequent results. ...

It seems to me that faith in the Swedish Myth requires a couple of steps:

1. Compare Sweden to the handful of advanced nations with worse experiences.
2. Never compare Sweden to the nations...

.....and whose Prime Minister was just re-elected by record margin. NZ took the virus seriously. Now their lives are pretty much back to normal, and they never had the carnage of, say, Sweden.

I'd cite New Zealand, myself. Their national numbers are running better than the the White House. And, I mean, just the White House.

They can also last 24 holes.....if they end up tied and the sudden-death tiebreaker goes on and on.

An issue for live TV; not so much for post-produced.

The downside of being eliminated early---half the field in the first round, 3/4 in rounds 1 &2---is a definite downside. Another, if the intent is a spectator spectacle, is that the final round is...

I've long been a skeptic that disc golf will make it as a spectator sport.....but thought that if it does, match play might be the ticket. I think there's a lot more drama in match play.

I think it was more interesting when this thread started, when there was a lot more movement. Now, it's quibbling over hundredths of a rating point.

I'll footnote that Langley Pond would be a good warmup for Stoney Hill, since it would give you ample opportunity to lose discs in the water.

Augusta courses are a lot better than Columbia courses. Langley Pond and the 3 IDGC courses are tops, though they're pretty challenging; Lake Olmstead is a shorter, park-style course that's a nice...

It's not always obvious which divisions will fill fast. A TD who caps MA1, might find a flood of MA4s.

The limits function as both caps, and set-asides.

Back about April, I mused, Is New York the worst....or just the first?

OK, a question with no politics, and oddly enough, a bit of disc golf.

What have we learned, since this thread began way back in March, that has changed the way Covid-19 affects our disc golf?
