I liked the fact that they were doing something different, something with a little more excitement, something more intriguing for spectators. I believe that was part of the point: not just build another tour of tournaments, but trying to draw more spectators. I'm not sure the format they used was the right something else, but at least it was a stab.
I agree. As a viewer, I liked it. As a player, I would likely not like it.

It was not that long ago I made post about it being crazy that Charlotte had not had a major pro event in some time. I'm super pumped about this move.

Charlotte needs one big event as they have one of the biggest Disc Golf clubs in the USA, from what numbers are being told on DGCR Forums.

They've had Worlds twice in the past 7 years, and the USDGC is pretty much in their suburb (lots of Charlotte people involved).

Yeah but in Charlotte, they have only had worlds, they could have used another event then give worlds to another place. USDGC is the same place every year and does not change from event to event. If that is all that the Move does is put the Pro Tour Championships at USDGC course then I will be very disappointed as Paul has built a game around that course to the point he has the best chance when healthy to win on that course with such a lead that nobody else can catch up to him. I mean Paul McBeth can do this on any course but Paul will do this easiest on the Rock Hill Course, having built his style of game for that specific course.

The Pro Tour championship will be at Hornets Nest, a woods course.
