To each his own. According to the PDGA guidelines, my rating has NEVER qualified me as an Advanced player, yet I played Advanced for years.... To each his own. I won a total of ONE trophy (3rd place) in Intermediate. For that matter, in my years as an Advanced player, I only won one trophy, and it was also just 3rd place. Why did I move up to Advanced when I did? So I would not plateau and stagnate. To each his own.
On the other hand, I know of a player who has played his entire career in one division. He has won 45 trophies, is rated WELL above the guidelines for that division, and yet continues to play in the same division. Year after year. And he wins. Over and over and over again. Doesn't seem too challenging to me, but then, to each his own.
