    • Computer majik, yes. So if the propagators are lower rated, higher ratings are harder to achieve, I believe.
      ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

        Yah... and that, too. Thanks for the reminder, Sean.

        • Having higher rated players in your division only helps your players ratings if they don't shoot well. If you're a 980 rated player then a 1000 rated player brings more points to the table. But they'll also shoot (on average) 2 strokes better then you per round and keep the extra points they brought. A 960 player brings less points to the communal pool but will also most likely take less from it at the end of the day.

          Just saying that having higher rated players in your pool will raise your scores is a misnomer.

          • I'd say the disadvantage isn't having lower rated players in your pool, but rather having newer players in your pool. These newer players are getting better faster and many of them expect to throw better than their rating 75 - 90% of the time. That would push ratings down because the average player in the pool would be better than their average. This phenomenon may have been further exaggerated by this being the first tournament of the year, with a bunch of folks having practiced and improved over the winter.

              Sorry about that I did not mean to call you guys out. Just wanted to express what everyone was saying over the weekend including many locals. It just seems to make sense to build some sort of french drain in that location. The high use in that area has increased the compression of the ground in the surrounding areas which has increased the spread of the seepage of water from its natural flow. I think a valid argument for a natural drain could be made especially with support from a riparian specialist. I do not know of any but we have two schools in Oregon that pump these kinds of specialists out so there has to be at least one or two who are disc golfers.

              I just want to see the experience and Whistlers enhanced year around.

                  True.

                  I'll have to get you to come out to play something in the Boulder area sometime.
