If *course* par is set for a 1000 rated player, then Winthrop is doing pretty well with its par 67. Round 1 a 67 was 1003 rated; round 2 a 67 was 997 rated (unofficially).

Technically he probably only throw 14 or 15 shots.

I am seeing TDs adjusting their courses and par. If our goal is perfection, well, we've failed. If our goal is to adjust as the talent pool grows, then I commend the leaders in the sport.

At one point, when I felt more engaged. I took the scores off of specific holes. There are holes out there where the top 25 players get a birdy. Those wholes are flawed IMO.

I am much less worried about this than many at this point. I see too much effort on the part of TDs to make their courses relevant and challenging to think that they aren't aware and aren't working on the issue.

We are in a period of huge growth and change. It seems unlikely that we would fix every problem exactly when it occurs.

Par and basket size are not holding the sport back, disc golf is exploding despite "Par looking bad" to a few par sympathizers.

It’s gonna be really interesting tomorrow in the rain. If it’s a constant steady rain it becomes a test of patience and endurance over scoring. Which might play into Dickerson’s mental game even more? Can’t wait.
