Funny you should mention a chair.. A guy I play with has a "Flipstik", I got one I was jealous. It's a bicycle seat on a stick that doubles as a cane.

He had both knees done this year so we didn't see him, I'm not making it to his tourney either. Real good player, happy to play against him, been some close battles in the woods. I've beat him, he's beat me. I play Masters Open now, he usually plays Open since he won the world's in 2010 Advanced Grandmasters. Anyhow it's regional, situation dependent and a personal decision. Since I won masters up there last year and tied for best score I will probably play open next time.. But Masters everywhere else.

I'd be all over Rec Masters. I don't play Adv Masters around here because they usually play half or all rounds from the long tees, and I just don't have the arm to make that at all enjoyable. I played Adv Masters at Ledgestone one year, mainly because I liked two of the courses more than the ones I would have played where I belong (Rec), and they generally used reasonable tees. I got whupped, but had a good time with my cardmates.

Now I remember that nice lawn chair you had at the ace race last year

Gotta get me one of those

All they need imop is one additional split for age protected divisions: am40adv, am50adv, etc, etc. Maybe anyone rated 900 and up would play in those divisions.

I'm a 72 year old player with a current rating of 764. I will normally play the highest age division offered even though my rating says I should be playing rec. I prefer playing with guys closer to my age. I have played in rec a couple of times but that was so I could be on the same card with my son and grandson. (We had a great time playing together.)

There are very few MA60+ players around here apparently because I'm usually the only one in the division. I always tell the TD to move me if he wants to but they usually don't so I end up "winning" my division. If you look at my PDGA page (112291) you will see that I have 4 career "wins" because of this. (They give me no great pleasure BTW)

I don't do this to cherry pick winnable tournaments but I'm trying to represent older players in the hopes that maybe more older guys will see this and come out. Probably won't accomplish much with that, but I can always hope.

Some guy playing music out of his crappy smart phone speaker. Besides the fact that it's just annoying and rude, it's never any music that anyone wants to listen to. I don't give a crap about your Scandinavian alternative ska band.

I'm more bothered when someone plays music I like, through crappy speakers. If they're going to ruin music, I'd prefer they ruin music I already hate.

I love distortion in speakers, it gives music that teenage feel. Takes me back to hanging out with my idiot friends that always turned it up way too loud on a crappy stereo because louder is better! Right?

Are you saying that my Boston 8 track tape didn't sound awesome cranked up on my Kraco speakers in 1980?

Wanna fight?
