I call for a re-vote.

We already have the codes---MA1, MA2, MA3, MA4, etc.---and I hear these used sometimes.

At least if I live long enough, I'll be a "Legend", even if I'm an anonymous legend.

And around here that guy is usually playing according to his rating. For every bagger there are like 30 pretenders in these parts. Playing Rec is like a badge of dishonor and everybody guilt trips everybody into playing up into a division where they shouldn't.

We use Am1, Am2, ... as much as possible. We say Am3 and spell it MA3.

Agreed - I feel that color coded names (Green, Red, White, Blue & Gold/Open), as defined by rating, do make the most sense. No stigma for any of them (yet). If folks want to play within a gender or age-restricted group, there would be that option (juniors, women's, seniors, etc).

On a tangent regarding age groups, I think we could expand, not contract, the older age divisions (maybe 45-59=Bronze, 60-74=Silver, 75+=Diamond). Disclosure: I'm 56, and have enjoyed competition from Rec to Pro Grandmaster. I agree with the Senior Olympics having 5 year age bands for their events (to encourage the fun), while the pdga should maybe focus on helping us older players build larger divisions.

Really? "Colored"?

Dude, that's SOOOO 1960s.

The term these days is "pigmentally gifted."
