I wanted players who qualified to experience something like the USDGC here in Oregon.
I feel like I have accomplished that and I would like to continue to improve the event, but I'm not so sure adding more people is the answer. Today, I sat here trying to justify adding the two Masters divisions only to see that even that isn't enough to appease you guys.
As for adding another course, that is not going to happen... the event IS that course.
I hope you all understand.
I do understand. It's rather simple.
It's your concept and you're the TD.
I really have never ignored anything you have to say as I respect you and your goals.
BUT, I do disagree with parts of your concept.
As far as getting the best in the state, you'll get most, but there are a lot of very good dger's that won't/can't attend these qualifiers. Also, I'd figure there would be some that made the events but didn't qualify.
I think the only way to find the best in the state is to have an open shootout!
Why are you so opposed to having two or more courses?
Most of us have never been or prolly never will experience the USDGC, so IMO that point is moot.
You have several challenging courses in your area that would require a champion to play his best if he wants the gold.
It seems to me if you make this gig like the USDGC stuff, you're narrowing it down to who is the smartest dger in the state.
Also, I never much cared to be the appease-ee.
I make part of my living being an appease-er.
