Default DGPT Allstar Weekend

If this moves into a team based competition, why not use disc sponsorship, rather than a draft as a means for forming the teams ? It might spice things up.

The DGPT people in charge demanded the format.

Jeff Spring, recently on the Upshot subscriber bonus episode, mentioned that Mo Bahrani (an NBA fan) had the idea.

How about a coin toss and first to score wins?

Here is some context to the conversation here.

https://discgolf.ultiworld.com/2022/...ort-in-tucson/

Quote:
The Disc Golf Pro Tour All-Star event will return to Arizona, February 11-13, for its second annual showcase at a new venue, the El Conquistador Resort, which also hosted the 2021 Arizona State Disc Golf Championships.

Twelve players from both the MPO and FPO divisions will make up the All-Stars fields, increasing from eight players in each division a year ago. The top eight players for each division were determined by 2021 DGPT points, and the final four in each division were decided by a system equally weighting 2021 DGPT points, 2021 DGPT Championship finish, a fan vote held in November and a media vote. The full All-Star field and final format details for the 2022 event, which will change from the format played for the 2021 edition, will be announced over the next month.
I am guessing that this will be behind the DGPT paywall.

I mean it's a contrived publicity stunt like every all star game. People watch them in other sports so...
