  • Do YOU want to go to USDGC?

    I am in the process of deciding HOW to select our State Rep to USDGC this year.


    I am also writing up a "Standards for Selection" that will be followed...
    such as..
    1) No One is eligible for the spot 2 years in a row.
    2) You are NOT eligible IF you have previously qualified (current year)

    I have MULTIPLE ideas and am leaning toward a "dedicated golfer" style.

    Seeing how the schedule is already quite full, we will use existing events for the determination.
    Side Pool competition of some sort....$20-$40 per person depending on the format. With ALL proceeds going toward the trips expenses, starting with entry fee and UP depending on the participation.
    I have some fundraising ideas that "should" raise an additional $1000 minimum.


    Any "thoughts" before I make a decision?

    I want to go!!!! I am more than likely flying there just to go to this premier event! Maybe pay the $50 to let the course kick my a$$ once for a qualifying round. Then I might have to try and find somebody to caddy for! Really sounds like a good idea to spend my first PFD on

      Huh...Nearly 48 hrs and NO ONE in this state has "piped in" on this subject.



      I suppose IF no one cares, I COULD just take the spot myself..

            I'd love to go!!!! However, I think there a few people who would likely fare better.

            I'd represent the state well off the course though. Ha!

              I vote for Jeff.

              I think his modesty and sportsmanship is exactly what I would want to represent the great state of Oregon. Send him to the USDGC. He'll class up the joint.

                  I agree. BUT.. "Giving" the spot to someone is NOT a popular method.

                  MOST want it to be "skill" related AND it will be.
                  Jeff is selling himself SHORT, IMO.
                  He very well could compete for the spot, I intend to.

                    Kiss up all you want Wilson. I still won't make out with you.

                    A man has to have standards, and mine, while low, are still well above lawyers.

                      Why would you need to compete for the spot. I thought the State Rep was automatically given a spot for themselves, and then also get's to decide another player from the state.

                      Am I am wrong about this?

                        Oh, and I want to go, but not till next year. Can I reserve my spot early?

                          There is only one spot that the State Rep has the option to decide what to do with it. They COULD keep it for themselves ( and some do ) or decide whom to give it to or have an event for!!

                            State Spot

                            I think the State rep and State Coordinator are being confused. The state coordinator chooses a state rep, a state rep gets a pass into the USDGC. If there is going to be $1000+ in fundraising to help send someone to the USDGC I just might avoid qualifying through traditional means and compete for the state spot this year.

                              All jests aside I think Dion is the man for the job. He has traveled more than just about anyone else and his game would fit great at Winthrop if he played smart. I vote for Dion.
