Mr. Weema played in a local C-tier near me this weekend. The guy who got 2nd to last place beat him by 32 strokes (2 round tourney). I just don't get it. If he signed up for rec or int, that'd be fine. I don't understand why he plays open.

His stellar rating of 739 will continue to drop after this.

The way I look at it is this...If this is what makes Mr. Weema happy then I say more power to him. Keep playing open big fella. I don't get it either but hey, its his rating to ruin as he sees fit. OTOH I find I do play better when I am on a card with players better than me. Seems like I learn a lot and play a little more inspired when on a card with good players. Maybe that's his gig?

Way to go guys....

I'm generally pretty calm and focus easily on the course. Distractions don't bother me much.

However, another player taking that many more throws, consistently, could get old pretty quickly. And I'm no MPO player, either.

Like others have said, to each his own. It just seems odd.

Would love to see Nikko perform well this year. Of course I'm rooting for Andrew Preznell because he's local and I used to play with him. I also fully expect to see a lot out of heimburg and kevin jones this year.

His style last year was impeccable.

His attitude I heard was gonna change this past year. But it still lead to one of my favorite DG video moments this year. "YAAAA DUMDUM"
