Do you think there's a way to summarize a player's game using Udisc statistics similar to baseball's WAR?
Yes, use the scores. Since players are playing against each other individually on the same playing field, there is no need for a WAR-type way to guess who is a better player.

How did different aspects of a player's game combine to produce their total score? Are there skill minimums for successful pros?

Why are there no tee times posted yet?

People will be teeing off in 13 hours and they still have no idea whether they are going off at 8am or 2pm....most disc golf sugnificant tournaments they post tee times earlier as well as in ball golf....seems odd that they don't announce World's tee times until so late...

It is easy enough to do 24-48 hours in advance....

That's different. It won't be the current UDisc stats, it will be something like golf's strokes gained. When we eventually start recording the exact location of every throw.

However, disc golf is much more complicated than golf, so we'll either need a lot more categories for types of places the disc can land, or a heat map of average throws to get to the target from every location on every hole. Maybe a different heat map for every type of throw used from each location.

Tee times are typically announced at the players' meeting, which I assume is taking place right now (it's usually the night before rounds start). The reason they do this is because check-in closes shortly before the players meeting, and they don't want to include players that failed to check in.

As a player, it's really not that big of a deal. They know the course they're supposed to be going to tomorrow. The meeting gets out early enough that if they have an early tee time, they can get themselves back to their hotel or house or whatever with plenty of time to get the rest they need.
