It΄s like the Olympics . . if you get a win. that trumps everything else . . by far
Nate Doss won the Beaver State Fling a bunch of times in the 2000's since that was like a local course for him and he would play all the time in the off season.

Sam Ferrans won the third ever World championships in 1984. He was not in attendance for the first two. He's the only one I can find.
Yes the first ever Worlds don΄t really count, hard to have played something that don΄t exist

But nice for Eveliina. no one in her lifetime have placed better in their first Worlds

Uhhhhhhhh, Nate grew up in Santa Cruz, California. The greater Portland, Oregon area was not "local" to him. Even now that he resides in Oregon, it's not local to him...Bend is a good three hour drive from Portland.

To be fair, he has won the BSF...once, in 2007.

There were several tournaments the first year the pros went the three rounds, 1-a-day, that ended up getting truncated due to the schedule of the last round on Sunday, negating any possibility of making it up.

Sunday is not there as a buffer because tournaments are NOT allowed to finish incomplete rounds by adding another day.

Under no circumstances should players be expected, or asked, to return on a day
following the last day of the regular scheduled rounds to finish the event.

Like parents sometimes say: "Because we said so!"

Just like the golf ball golf US Open, PGA Championship, or (British) Open, it's what they call it, therefore it's what it is.

It's the knowing at the end that if you win THIS tournament, you will be called "World Champion" for all time.

Could they improve the quality of the tournament? Sure. Could they improve the qualifications to get into the tournament? Sure. But in the here and now, it's "Worlds", and the winner is the World Champion.

Glad you like it. It takes a bit of staring.

For those who haven't looked, if you keep in mind that when the line is going up, the player is playing above their rating, you can almost replay the event in your mind.

A few tidbits:

After two rounds, Paul's expected final score was 16 throws better than anyone else, even though he was behind Emerson by one at that point. That makes me wonder whether anyone else ever really had a chance.

Note how far above his rating Emerson was playing until hole 16 in the second round at Northwood. He was gaining an average of .41 throws on himself every hole!

Simon's 14 under was 5 better than expected for him, while Ricky's 14 under was 7 better than he would have expected.

The biggest thing I got out of it was this:

I had not realized how badly Paige Bjerkaas had fallen off the pace as the tournament progressed. I knew she was way behind, but not that she faded and kept on fading.

And not just...
...off the pace, but off her pace. Twenty throws worse than her rating would indicate.
