To me this reads as if an individual just registered/re-upped with PDGA while the event is in progress. Probably have a script/API pulling current PDGA members overnight and matching the emails to DGN accounts to grant the DGN event PPV access. .

As a active PDGA member since last fall I expected the event access to be granted ahead of the event and allow watching all rounds live...which didn't happen for this events first round. I don't remember if this was an issue with LVC since they pushed the round 1 stream out to Youtube due to DGN Vimeo issues. I missed streaming Champions Cup so can't comment on if access was granted for Rd1 ahead of the event starting.

I wonder if this scripting was not run or updated to grant access to USWDGC once the event PPV stream pages were created. We'll see if this is an issue with the remaining 'benefits' of being a PDGA member - Pro Worlds - final 2 rounds and the Last pro tour event of the 2022 season.

After getting access yesterday, I am enjoying watching the FPO tackle these courses where we are seeing a pretty balanced challenge and diverse skillsets on display.

Jomez practice round this week was at Elver Park if you want a quicker preview than watching the live coverage.

Hailey’s Eagle on 17, the 459’ Par 4, through the woods is the shot of the tournament. That drive was just incredible. I think this is her tournament to lose but all four of these women on lead card still have a shot. Evelina and Ohn both missed some putts that could make a big difference tomorrow if they are able to convert. What an exciting finish this will be!!

It's nice to see Hailey looking generally happy!
It seems like she has been going through the motions lately.

When Hailey is on, she looks like she should be #1 in the world. Elite distance BH and FH and can make putts from anywhere. I'm not sure anyone has more tools than she does. For her not to even be in the top ten (world ranking) is crazy.

I agree. I made this post in Dixon Jowers Facebook group back in May when talking about who might win any of the remaining women's Elite and Major events other than Cat, Paige or Kristin.

"Haily King may have close to a home court advantage at USWDGC"

Hailey started the year ok but the last two tournaments has been horrible for her, and the few befor not that great. .
But as you say, its hard to see why, she HAS ALL the tools to be top 3 every tournament she plays...
But it feel like Hailey is a bit like Paige. . when shes of, shes WAY of.

Nice play from Kadi Allsalu. . her R3 -8 was rated 996 and i think thats her highest rated round ever.

Shes only 913 rated . . but her 3 rounds at the Preserve was rated 926, 970 and 969. (she got 10th place by far the lowest rated player in the top 10)
And in this tournament she has started with 954, 945 and 996

Not bad to place 10th in her first ever tournament in the US an now in the top 10 at her first mayor with one round to go

It could be beneficial. They may be able to give you sound advice.
