      This "might" be a good thing IF the European Championships was opened up to NON-Euro players. Look at the results from it this past weekend...
      exclusively European players.

        Milo, Flash and Jeff Mittl could do it... Sorry to speak for you guys. A Huge AM event sounds really intruging!! NOT! Who can Bag the longest is what I really want to know?? It definitely keeps the disc golf world glued to the internet ;( Ams probably spend more money than pros so I guess it makes sense to the manufacture in this case to broaden the way things are done. Create 2 cash cows out of one so to speak.
        Japan is not as sacred as the USDGC. All of the key players can't afford to go there and anyone who can afford to go may. In other words you do not have to qualify to go toJapan you just have to have enough money.. Not the USDGC

          Just remember people the European Championship and European Open are two different tournaments. The European Championship is for European citizens, while the Open is open to everyone (This is the tournament moving to odd numbered years)

              I would say that this is no real big deal as the best players plan on cashing at both which makes both trips vacations at least and possibly slight money earning events.

              As for the less qualified, unless they run an event that is a USDGC qualifier they aren't going to USDGC anyway unless they are going to watch. That frees up the money to go to the Japan Open, which very few average players go to anyway (although you should if you have the fundage).

                And Scandinavian Open which is also classified as a Major.

                  From the USDGC Facebook page: "Dates for next year's USDGC are confirmed for October 5-8, 2011. "

                  What am I missing here?

                    Change of format. They are going to a handicapped event next year and I imagine will flip flop every other year with the standard in 2012. Just a guess on that last part, really... but it makes the most sense.
                    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

                      I hadn't heard the part about a handicapped event. I only heard about alternating years with the European Open. I assumed that meant no event in odd-numbered years.
