I think most likely a Paul/Richard battle again, but the way some of the other guys are playing makes it interesting. Anthon has been solid, Doss has been pretty good and Eagle was hot last weekend. Looking at the course maps it looks like these courses don't really favor one player in particular. It looks like they'll need their full bag this weekend.
Marine/Navy Course
WR Jackson Memorial Course

I think the separation will come more from the Marine/Navy course but both of these courses look amazing.

Can someone share the schedule for this tournament with me? I'm struggling to find the details for each day.

I am considering the long drive down there to see a few days of the tournament (want to see the best play at least once).

Do they play Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri/Sat/Sun or it is over on Saturday?

And how many rounds per day do they play?

One round per day on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

This is the latest schedule published last Thursday. Looks like A & C pools (that's the top half of MPO and the entire FPO division) will be at IDGC on Wednesday and Friday, and at Fort Gordon on Thursday and Saturday.

My suggestion would be to go on Friday or Saturday. That way you're assured to see all the top players in one place (there's always a chance that some might start in the B-pool during the first two days).

Keep in mind that Fort Gordon is a military base so security will be high and at least two forms of identification are required. If I'm reading this correctly, spectators at Fort Gordon may also need to submit to background checks before being allowed on base.

Thanks, just want to make sure I'm reading this right...

They play one round each day on Wednesday (WR Jackson), Thursday (Marine), Friday (WR Jackson) and Saturday (Marine)...

I thought that Worlds had more than 4 rounds...

Is that correct...then Sunday is a separate mixed doubles?

I didn't realize the finals were at Ft. Gordon until just now. Not sure I want to jump through the hoops to go watch.
