That's not an assumption. I'm CDGC President and there's been no discussion with the Board. If there are informal discussions outside the Club, we are unaware of them.

The hangover and weariness from 2012 Worlds lasted about 4 years. Then we took on 2018 Worlds. Not quite as stressful this time around. We're noodling what biggie is next.

I started with a red 165, then a 161 before settling on the 151. All my fairway and distance drivers are between 150 and 159; mids 168ish; putters 166-70.

Interesting thread. I don't believe PDGA payout/players pack value requirements keep clubs from making money. It depends on how an event's expense/revenue projections are planned out beforehand. I'm...

If it was an M it'll be quite flippy, S is a good bit more stable, a sweet disc. Q is a stable candy bomber at 150 - some of the best 150-class drivers ever made.

Do you know why throwing rollers is like dating strippers?
It's great fun but you never know what you'll be left with.

Coming to Am Worlds? If so, I'll take that bet, for any of Charlotte's fine brews. I'll prefer a porter. ;)
