I'm surprised the PDGA hasn't changed their homepage to reflect the new world champions.

for real though do you think the PDGA has updated their world rankings yet? I can only find a the 2018 year end ranking. Is there a way to see players ranked by rating?

If you go to the player stats page under the membership tab, there are several categories you can sort by including ratings

More than the number of rounds or a final 9 I really dig the DGPT Championship system. It is kinda like the tournament tree in a tennis major. I dont know if it would be applicable to Worlds tho. Maybe. Then youre much moreso playing against other players and AND the course.

As far as timing of post production. I don't think that Jomez is purposefully timing the release to coincide with the live coming out. I am hoping it is just coincidence. Someone asked why all the crews don't get together and schedule things better, and none of us have a real incentive to do so. We all have our own part to do, and are just trying to get our stuff out as fast as possible.

I like the 5 round format. I don't think we need more full rounds. I could be convinced of a final 9 as well to ratchet up the pressure.
JVD, what I meant is that Northwoods outside of ledgestone was a good course before the redesign. I never liked what was done with the roped OB's and the circus act, but playing the course casually was a lot of fun. I was kinda surprised that they took out the original hole 1 for the course, it was one of the best holes on the course. Northwoods now is even better then it was.

For Jomez, it would be hard to convince me that it was just coincidence that for 4 days in a row their next day mpo footage was released at the exact time the live coverage went up.

Why is that hard to believe? The rounds they were covering were ending at roughly the same time each day. It probably took them the same amount of time to cut it together each night. Jerm and Nate probably recorded their commentary at the same time each morning. Then they put it all together and set it to upload at roughly the same time each day. Stands to reason that if it came out right around the start of the lead card on day 2, it would continue to do so as long as the lead card tee time stayed the same all week.

The US Women's Disc Golf Championships (PDGA Major Event) played rounds at Northwood (No "s" on the end) every year it was hosted in Peoria from 2002 to 2007. It was a perfect course for the ladies to play. I was horrified to see the ropes and OB that first year at Ledgestone. I was glad to see many of my favorite holes were still in play (some with new target placements.) I will always have a place in my heart for this course as I shot the ladies course record at 2003 USDGC and beat Des and Juliana for at least one round!



...glory days.....
