You are by no means the only one who thinks this. After the World Championships there (Ricky's first WC), several pros I personally know called the event "boring". I don't know why people consider these long, wide open, no-woods courses to be "good"; they really do get to be boring to watch.

When I played the Brewster Ridge Open this summer I preferred Brewster even though I did better on Fox Run, but so did the rest of the field but to a much bigger degree. I like technical shots, preferably with low ceilings and tight gaps even though I can throw 400'. I would prefer playing multiple courses as a pro, especially if they were tightly wooded, in order to stop the big arms from taking everything, that being said I am still trying to increase my distance.

If the wind is up, that adds enough challenge to make the Emporia courses interesting. Then you find out who can manage high winds, which is a legit disc golf skill. But I tend to agree when it’s calm.

An epic mass mailing today to registered players from DD. They added courses and have over 1500 pre-registered players. There are 11 flex starts including 6 C-Tiers. All are capped at 250-300. Plus the week-long activities. I don't think there has ever been anything disc golf in the World of this magnitude. Given DD's history I'd expect the quality of this event to equal it's quantity.

Correct; It is "its" not "it's". But I got the "don't" and "I'd" right. Wouldn't consider calling you a deek 'cause I'd have to call me wife one to as her is likly too call I on spellin and grammer to.


Another thing in DD's equation is this is still 5 months away. This is an incredible response.

Only thing I'd like them to consider is offering 70+ divisions in Pro and Am. Our numbers are increasing but our playing years left are few. Especially compared to those 500+ in Rec and Intermediate. An experiment to offer small divisions for the elder statesmen/stateswomen can't be too much to ask. I'd certainly recruit all I could.
