Maybe they're getting player packs from DD?

Nope. Seems weird. I will ask.

I just wanna say that it was awesome to watch a dude on chase card with me at Token Creek yesterday completely destroy the course. It was the best I've ever seen Token long/blue played in person (besides final 9s with top pros in years past).

He came from tied for 5th and 6 strokes off the lead to win by 1, shooting a 74. And that with 3 4s. He carded a 2 on 10 holes! There's definitely 12 or so 2-able holes, but man, to hit almost all of them was crazy to watch.

I heard there is a new TD for MCO 2019.
Im super excited that the problem has been solved.

I got to witness a terribly unfortunate incident.

The lead card started on Hole 3. Apparently, someone thought it wise to have the lead card finish on Hole 2, with the green right behind tournament central. Make it easy for the spectating, perhaps?

Well, when the lead card arrived on the final green, there were zero spectators watching.

However, being that close to TC, with cold beer on tap, and the Packers and Vikings on a big screen TV, did allow for one loud "WHOOP", right in the middle of Eddie's 25 foot par putt . That putt was for a tie for the lead...

After watching those guys play their hearts out in a grueling 27 hole duel, it just felt wrong for it to end that way. And made me think that this doesn't happen if they start on 1, and end on 27.

Things do sound exciting for 2019. There's simply no where else for the MCO to go from here but up, IMO

It wouldn't have been as loud, but we were hearing the game cheers all way over on 8-10.

Showing the game was probably not the best idea until all cards were in.

Also, I hit the elusive ace-but-wasn't-in-the-ace-pool ace.

They tried to give me the $35, but I said I never paid into the pool. They were like "Oh, we never checked that. Whoops." I know at least one other person who hit one was not in, and apparently took the money. It felt wrong so I declined it, and they gave me a disc as a consolation prize.

So unorganized.

MCO 2019 is already listed on DGscene with Elver as the park (tournament central?).

Looks like things are turning around this year, some pretty big names are signed up:

Ricky Wysocki
GG
Matt Bell
Barry Schultz
Jessica Weese

I suspect registration will really pick up now that Ricky is registered.

Is Ricky still playing? He was supposed to make an appearance at Glide, but that was cancelled...so I'd suspect he won't be here for the tourney.
