Sports is kind of odd, some wins you remember forever. . others not so much

Worlds is THAT tournament in discgolf. . i know that Avery won in 2009, McCabe in 2010 and i know that Doss have 3x and Climo 12x . . but i can΄t name a single other tournament any of them have won

It΄s like the Olympics . . if you get a win. that trumps everything else . . by far

Obviously all the winners the first year did. I would imagine there were some more in the early years. Also happens all the time at Am Worlds.

Harold Duvall won the first Worlds in 1982 and it was his first PDGA event.

You mean aside from the first year of Worlds?

Sam Ferrans won the third ever World championships in 1984. He was not in attendance for the first two. He's the only one I can find.

I would think we are seeing less viewership because of it both in person and online and I would think that it limits the field of play as well. Now I dont think these tournaments have any issue in filling up but it could stop them from future growth. I also know that some tournaments have gone away from Sunday rounds because of religious views which Im not a fan of but I understand.
I also see the reason to have that Sunday as a "buffer day" in case of bad weather late in the event causing the players to not be able to complete it. They can let them know early enough that e'll make up the round we're behind on Sunday. There were several tournaments the first year the pros went the three rounds, 1-a-day, that ended up getting truncated due to the schedule of the last round on Sunday, negating any possibility of making it up.

Sunday would need to be designated as a make up/over-run date well in advance of the event in order to get away with it. It's not something that can be announced on Friday that the tournament will finish on Sunday. Particularly if it's a tournament with a lot of people in from out of town using hotels, campgrounds, etc...people need to know whether they need to book an extra night just in case.

As for the tournaments that had cancelled final rounds, the first was USDGC in 2016, a tournament that ended on a Saturday. The third was GBO, which also was scheduled to end on a Saturday. Only the Nick Hyde was scheduled to end on Sunday and had the final round cancelled.

In both the USDGC and GBO's case, the question of finishing the tournament on Sunday was broached, but ultimately discarded because people were planning to get out of town and weren't prepared to extend hotel stays or re-arrange flights just to finish the event. Of course, in USDGC's case, even if the players wanted to stay, many of the local hotels were booked out for storm evacuees so there was no chance for anyone to extend their stay.

I really don't think the opportunity to run over into Sunday is among the primary reasons that tournaments are ending on Saturday.

Definitely, I get and I know all that. All I am saying is that having the tourney scheduled to end on Saturday at least leaves the possibility!
