A Memorial Back to Back

20120306-064520.jpg

Will Schusterick and Dave Feldberg played absolutely lights out golf at the Memorial. They fought hard. They made it look easy. And then there was Paul McBeth. Paul is calm, cool, and collected. He’s not flashy, but this weekend, he was as perfect as you could ever hope to be. Booming, accurate drives combined with rock-solid putting made him simply impossible to catch, much less beat. Paul cruised to a -44 to become the second player in history to win back-to-back at the Memorial Championship.

PDGA Leagues?

PDGA Leagues will allow players to earn PDGA ratings and PDGA tour points just like they would at PDGA Tournaments. Non-PDGA members are encouraged to participate in our leagues as we will be using a universal point system allowing all players the chance to win.

Work Days Reward:

We will incorporate a bonus league points or “extra credit” for players who volunteer at the club work days on the mornings of league play. Work Days begin at 9:00 am and end around noon. Players must participate for at least 3 hours to earn these bonus points.

Fairmont Format:

We will meet at the Pavilion by #1 at 2:00 PM each Saturday and take registrations. Once split into groups, simply play your round, turn in the scorecard and you are done. This format will eliminate wait time at the end of your round. The TD will submit the scores to the PDGA web site after each league where they will be listed online for you to review.

Play Fantasy Disc Golf

20120202-083604.jpg

Fantasy Disc Golf brings a new element of competition into the sport of disc golf. Players pick the golfers they think will perform the best at a given tournament. Here’s how it works:

Pick golfers: For each tournament in each league you’re a member of, you’ll pick the golfers you think will perform the best. Each league may have different picks and scoring systems. Picks must be made by Midnight, Central Time on the day the tournament starts.

Watch the action: Follow the tournament and watch the golfers! Many Major and National Tour tournaments have live online scoring on the PDGA Website, and some even have live video coverage.

Check your scores: After the tournament completes and its results are posted we’ll calculate the player scores. Check out your league results and standings, and then proceed to tell your friends how awesome you did and how awesome they didn’t do.

Play fantasy disc golf.
