Default TDing a Worlds Blog

I've decided to chronicle my experiences over the next year and a half TDing the worlds.

Here is the first post.

Hope all enjoy.

Nice article and write-up. It looks like a ton of work.

What would you say is your motivation and personal payoff for doing an event like this?

That first blog alone will be invaluable---we can link to it everytime someone posts that worlds should be held at such-and-such city or course.

Thanks.

Right.

I think the most important part of that article was when I discussed course difficulty. Many people think that Am Worlds has to have courses that we see on the pro tour and it's simply not appropriate.

Thanks, I've always been curious about those who willingly volunteer for such positions. Seems to be a labor of love for many TD's. But this seems to me to be on another level of commitment

It's for the secret big buck payoff he'll reveal in his last story on this adventure.

The real danger is that he'll accurately portray what goes into running Worlds.....

And no one will ever volunteer for it, again.
