Default 2 1 round tournaments

One round, two tournaments at the same course, same day. Morning tourny and after lunch tourny.

Would you play?

Advantages/ disadvantages? Thoughts and opinions?

Need more info. Why do it in this format? If most players are staying to play both rounds anyway, is this just a way to hand out twice as many accolades?

Sure, I'd play.

But why two separate tourney's? Is the second one different somehow from the first?

Basically just wondering if this would allow me to grab more people who would only have time for one round.

Obviously id have to pay two pdga sanctioning fees, but still might be worth it if you snag like 10 people who only play one or the other.

One round tournaments? Those are called leagues, aren't they?

Are both rounds included in one entry fee or can you pay for each separately (and perhaps skip one or the other)?

I think if it was low cost and I could pick and choose one round or the other, I'd consider participating in something like that.

Twice the sanctioning fees, twice the paperwork (if sanctioned).

Twice the fees, or the payouts are meager for each one.

Lunch/awards (for those playing only morning)/players meeting all at once.

On the other hand, it could be fund to play in---blow up in the morning event, get a fresh start in the afternoon one. Or, if you can't give up a whole day on that date, play the one that fits your schedule.

*

I've known a few places to do this on Saturday/Sunday. Two events, play either or both. It's a great option.

The one round tournament being called a league round is the reason for me thinking about this. A lot of people don't want to drive to play a glorified tag match, so figured this may work.

And of course low cost, think shelling merch on ams is lame. My club doesn't have a vendor like some, so we always do players packs.

Rather do like minimum cost just for ratings kinda deal.

I voted no, because I'd rather have a two round tourney. One round would probably lead to a bunch of ties, and I think it's fun to see where you stand after one round and try to do better on the next one. Plus, from a TD perspective, would the hassle of having two separate one round tourneys really be worth the few people you'd pick up?*

*of course, if you've had lots of people say they'd show up for a one round tourney, it might be worth doing. However, you really could just run a pair of league rounds instead and have a separate, unsanctioned side tourney for people who play both league rounds that day; that way, they still get rated rounds, and people who were only going to play one round still get to play and get a rated round. IDK the full PDGA sanctioning deals and if a side tournament wouldn't be ok, but it's a thought.

Fair points.

Another reason for me thinking about this is because of how league rounds rate weirdly. I know some people disagree but league ratings just seems flawed.

I voted no. Although I probably would play both rounds if it was local. But I likely would be discouraged to travel any real distance to play a pair of glorified tag matches.
