sounds like the root of the problem isn't penises vs vaginas... but rather bad course design, yeah?

I'd say only partly due to course design. I think the trouble with Worlds in particular (which will be less of one in future with the split) is that because of the range of skills across the divisions and the time crunch involved, some of the courses used by MPO aren't necessarily suited to them. They're perfectly good courses, but better suited for the 940-1000 rated range (which the top FPO players fit into perfectly). So watching the FPO play gives you a better idea of how the course was designed to be played. They're throwing a full complement of shots where the MPOs tend to stick to the hyzer bombs or discing down to mids when most mere mortals would still need a full driver.

Count me disappointed that there isn't an MPM round on the docket for the week. Still fun to see guys like Climo, Schultz, etc play. Oh well, it's going to be fun to watch regardless.

Fair point and I agree. For an event as prestigious as Pro Worlds, they really need to courses tailored to a specific skill-set. This is why I think splitting up Pro Worlds is a good idea.

If it were truly matching courses to skills, it would make more sense to have MPO at one Worlds and FPO with the other 40+ pro divisions. But that's unlikely to happen. The top FPO skill set is blue level and roughly matches the top Sr. Grandmaster men. ;-)

That's what I was thinking and wanted to say, but I didn't want to be the one to stir the pot like that... too many softies running amok on this site. All I could think of was the huge World Tour debacle regarding the one division, one champion.

Few thoughts on Worlds-

Interested to see where Barry ends up, wouldn't be surprised to see him on the lead card at some point during the week.

Both Eagle and Uli seem to be hitting their stride at the right time. I'd give the nod to Uli over Eagle, as Uli has the experience.

At the end of the day though, if someone other than Rick or Paul is going to win, it will be Nate. If Nate keeps his inside the circle putting percentage in the 90s, watch out.

Can't wait.

Anything in the works for a partner for Terry? I'd love it if Dixon could jump on the mic when he's not playing - I think he's playing Masters, yes? Or is he playing open? Madison is great also. Dana, not so much. (JK, Dana's great... Sort of... )

Assume you mean Sexton, not Doss?
And I might be inclined to throw Bradley Williams into the conversation.

Isn't this McCabe's home area? Why's he not in the discussion?
