Sometimes I wonder if he is actually a person or a psyop being ran on us. It seems he is too consistent on being wrong for it to be an accident.

My theory, for whatever it's worth—

Casey's just a dude who enjoys our sport and has an idiosyncratic manner and a shaky grasp on the facts. Actually seems like a nice guy. Never insults people or gets belligerent. Sometimes acknowledges that he's been proven wrong (for which he deserves some kind of internet medal). Newbs will figure out pretty quickly that he's not a reliable source of information. So let him post. Correct him if you must, and respect his positive attitude.

That, or else he's the Leonardo da Vinci of trolling, and he deserves a different kind of internet medal. Either way, respect.

So KC is "playing" and announcing, impressive. Hoping for a 2 on new 1!

I'd bet he is doing the same thing as last year by throwing a ceremonial first hole and then moving to the broadcast booth.

Not that places in the tournament are so scarce that they can't spare it, but Climo can be the ceremonial opener (a la the tradition at the Masters currently fulfilled by Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player) without being on the official registrant list. If he's on the list, I believe he's intending to play full rounds.

In which case, perhaps he has no expectation that he'll be competitive, and thus expects to be done with his round in plenty of time to jump in the booth with Jamie for the lead card coverage.

Champ would NEVER play an event with no expectation that he will be competitive. He either thinks he has a chance to win or he won't play. My guess is he's probably doing the same thing he did last year (where he was on the list but had no intentions on playing the event).

My understanding was that he had every intention to play the tournament last year but after a practice round, decided he wasn't physically up to it.

This article on PDGA.com seems to support that.

Champ will play to win always, but he's not sure if he's healthy enough to go all 4 days at this point. He basically has an open invite to join Hannah and I on stage whenever he's ready each day, we'll just see how it plays out.


My advice before all of the drama comes in - let the Jomez stans say what they like. They will have their strong opinions about the arrangement, and their speculation about what, why, and how - just let them vent/express themselves. For my part, I think it's a win-win that USDGC and Jomez came to an agreement to bring another card of coverage. I'll be very happy to see those guys out there doing their thing, and of course I'm honored by the opportunity to work my 7th consecutive USDGC!

I'm stoked to be hosting with Hannah as well, she's really put a great deal of effort into preparing for her media roles this year, and I believe she has grown tremendously because of that. She got herself noticed with her performance in the booth at Worlds, and has wholly earned this opportunity.

I can't wait to see the new fan zone/warmup/stage area and the new holes!
