You may have read my recent post of mid-December about calculating player handicaps. I’ve been taking rounds played from minis and casual play since then and recording them, along with whoever happened to participate in those particular rounds.
The calculations create dynamic results based on scores of the player’s last six rounds. True ratings and handicaps won’t be accurate until at least 3-4 rounds are recorded. My stat-geek brain finds the results interesting, and astonishingly enough, fairly accurate! I validate that statement with …. so far!
I am allocating space here in the main page so that players may view their ratings as motivation to improve! The initial ratings are sorted descending from the highest player rating. No surprises, right? Sean leads the way!
Are you one of Tupelo’s older, wiser disc golfers? If so, you may be interested in reading further as this post as it’s totally directed towards local Masters division players.
A Facebook poll from a few months ago found there was local interest in a “Masters Only” monthly series of minis. A test run was held on December 28th at Tombigbee and the first one for 2020 will be held at Booneville DGC on Janaury 25th at 9:00am. One round only!
These minis are purely for fun and only cost a couple bucks! To add a bit of posswible excitement, payouts go to the top two finishers in the form of Mississippi lottery tickets, plus a small amount towards a CTP!
If you’re a master, look for an upcoming txt message or email for more details!
It’s been six years since the last Ice Bowl was held here in Tupelo. Who remembers purchasing mulligans and bringing canned goods in for registration? Does anyone remember the attendance of our first Ice Bowl back in 2004?
Ice Bowls are fun events that bring the disc golf community together to support and raise funds for a local charity, plus, it was good recognization for the sport locally! All this considered, I’m rejuvenating the event and holding a 2020 Ice Bowl at Veterans Park on Saturday, February 15th. Use the Paypal button below to register for your player’s pack!
