UH, true. But when I wrote that (see date of January 26 of this year -- lol) he had 17. He then won Australia, French, & Wimbledon in '21 to tie the others at 20.

Good idea.....I am wondering how Nate Heinold got so much PDGA power? Not a fan and question conflict of interests.

Uli makes an interesting point - he mentions that the players only play stroke play, and so the Major events should be stroke play. I find that fascinating because it really tells us a lot about how limited the tournament formats are on tour. It makes me wonder - how could we more regularly integrate a match play format? And why not call an event the PDGA or DGPT Match Play Championship, and integrate that into the tour? How could it be done to be minimally invasive to the tour schedule?

For example - taking a nod from the world of soccer/football - with the ranks of the regular touring pros growing, could something be done to integrate a match-per-event format where players get in a round on the course they are warming up for during each stop on tour and advance through qualifying pools, etc. leading into the top players winding up at a Major level PDGA Match Play Final?

That's a very raw idea, with a lot of drawbacks that even I can see - but its only a few moments of spitballing. How could it be improved? Is there any way for something like that to be integrated into the tour schedule in a way that does not tangibly/negatively impact prep for the tour events?

I think a better question is why would we want to incorporate new formats into disc golf's Majors and the DGPT regular season? I think we should have consistency at the professional level and that's essentially what Uli is advocating for.

Stroke play is fine for standalone events, but the truly top-level events in the sport should be played using the same format. I think the DGPT Championship is an exception because A) it is still working to garner its own level of prestige, B) it provides a way to reward players for consistently good performance over the season, and C) it's not a Major.

I'd love to see a Ryder Cup-style event for disc golf. It would be very entertaining for fans and professionals alike and doesn't need to compete with the prestige of a Major.
