    More salt in the wound. You gotta stop bringing up Doubles accomplishments just so I will tell you how great you are.
    I don't follow how a doubles score has any bearing on how an individual performs in tournament play. apparently, I could use some lessons from Sexton.

        Don't listen to them Kent!

        They are just looking to pad their division so they can win more $$$!

        You are dead on! If you have 22 rated rounds and your rating says you should play MA3 then do it and show the "you're number one" sign to any who say you are wrong.
        When your tournament game (not doubles or 3-headed monster or casual rounds) improves enough to compete in MA2 your rating will make it so you HAVE to play MA2.
        All of the old-school "if you win a division you have to move up" or "you'll get better faster by playing higher divisions" is a bunch of crap.
        And the wussies who get browbeaten into playing a division 25+ rating points above their rating (assuming a good sample of rated rounds) because of the stupid NAME of the division, DESERVE to get fleeced by the players playing in the correct division for their rating.

        Now there is a MAJOR difference between playing Pro and playing AM. When to turn Pro and jump into the big pond is a totally different discussion. But what division to play in AM is pretty cut and dried. Unless there is some outside reason why your rating is artificially low (injury, very few rated rounds, took extended time off from competition etc.) then you should be playing in a division that your rating dictates. And as soon as you start to play consistently in competition, your rating will increase and force you to play in the next division.
        The system can work, but only if we all play by the same rules.

        Mr. Phillips and Sam can bite me!
        Hath this whole world been mired in madness?
        Remain ye men of faculty complete,
        Of full arithmetic and prudence fair,
        Attending to our noble bond and contract?
        Or does here stand the last remaining man
        To give a fig for rules and order yet,
        No noble savage, but a stave unbroken
        Who loves the law and bids it no misdeed.
        Iíll not be bent to lawlessness. Mark it nought, if we be men of honour.

            Hell, I yell 'SANDBAGGER' when the Pro winner is announced and 'AGEBAGGER' when the Master winner is announced! It's all good!

                  Not to Hijack the thread but Nate is willing to come up to do multiple or group lessons. Personally? I'd rather go to Adair but if it works better for everyone else I'll do it where ever.

                  Now back to our regularly scheduled discussion on Bagging, Bagger, Sand Banger, etc. etc. ect.

                        As much as I have a long way to improve my game the last Slosh series is the only tournament I will be entering in MA3. I want to up my game and if it means losing money to better players in a division well above where I should be playing so be it. I don't think it is fair to ask anyone to play down a division where as the inverse I completely agree with. You will play where you choose to play. It definitely does not mean I have to agree with it. Again I am not trying to bag on ya (pun definitely intended) I enjoy playing rounds with ya. I'll see you out soon and we'll share a beer and conversation as we always have.

                            I honestly think that sandbagging is really only people holding themselves back... If you are capable of playing competitively in a higher division and you choose to play in a lower one you are only costing yourself the opportunity to learn from more skilled and experienced players. Let's face it, sandbagging is about winning... there is no question that you learn more and improve more by playing with stronger players... so if improvement is your goal you should try to move up as fast as possible... but if your goal is winning, well then, it time to grab some sand!

                              For me, only one player's score matters. I'll have to worry when I catch that guy bagging.

                                playing a division you don't belong in that's why you play pdga tournaments so your ranking decides where you can play
