Deuces Wild 2010 - Highland & Westpark July 10th & 11th
« on: May 24, 2010, 08:13:23 AM »
This one is a little different. The tournament is called "Deuces Wild" because the player in each division (minimum 3 players per division) that scores the most deuces will win a special players pack, regardless of where they place in the tournament.

This tournament plays one round at Westpark, and one round at Highland Park. Both parks are very close to each other, so travel time shouldn't be much of an issue. Having one round at each park should keep it interesting all day long.

The players are to meet at the pavilion above hole 8 at Westpark on both days.

Pre-registration closes at 9pm Friday, July 9th. Registration the day of the event is an additional $5. Pre-registration is available at www.acesandchains.com


Tentative Schedule:

Saturday: Jr divisions, Recreational, Advanced

Sunday: Novice, Intermediate, Pro Open

Registration will be open from 8am-9am both days. Players meeting at approx. 9:15am, and tee off at approx. 9:30am both days.

I will be awarding the sweetest trophies I've ever seen for both of my tournaments this year. The trophy is a custom wood replica of an actual golf disc complete with the tournament stamp, division played, and text saying 1st place.

I've attached a pic of the trophy for Chain Reaction prior to finishing. It will look even better once the finish is put on. Deuces Wild will have the same trophies, only with the Deuces Wild stamp on them.

Check it out and tell me......wouldn't that look great on your wall?

Just a couple of updates:

Pros will play the blue tees at Highland, and the long tees at Westpark.

Ams will play the white tees at Highland, and the short tees at Westpark.

Everyone meets at the pavillion above hole 8 at Westpark. Pros/Adv will have their first round at Highland after the players meeting (at Westpark), and second round after lunch at Westpark.

Where the rest of the Ams play their first round will be scheduled based on attendance. If possible, everyone will play their first round at Highland. If we need to split it up to allow more players to sign up, then we will schedule the rounds accordingly. This will all be determined the day of the tournament, prior to the players meeting.

There will only be one temp hole added - 8A at Westpark. This is the typical hole used to play between 8 and 9, starting at the pine trees with the pin tucked into the trees between 8 and 9s tee boxes. No temp holes will be added at Highland.

So, the pro division is the only one playing the longs?  Advanced is not playing the longs?  Thanks.

That is correct. Pros play blue tees at Highland, longs at Westpark.

Adv (and all other Ams) play white tees at Highland, and short tees at Westpark.

I had considered making the Adv. division play the blue and the longs, but I thought that went a little contrary to the theme of the tournament. And, it's less confusing if all the Ams play from the same tees.

Thanks for asking though. Hopefully that clears it up for everyone.

Ace fund has been carried over from Chain Reaction:

Approx. $80 in the ace fund for Saturday
Approx. $100 in the ace fund for Sunday

The ace fund will not be carried over after Deuces Wild. If no one hits an ace, we will have a CTP playoff for the cash each day. Just to be clear, Saturdays (Jr, Rec, Adv) ace fund is a separate fund from Sundays (Nov, Int, Pro).

Great weekend to be a J-town club member! (ie: Don't forget about the J-town invitational on Friday!) 3 days of tournaments in one weekend......

Got the custom hardwood disc trophies in for Deuces Wild. They look sweet! Instead of Cherry wood, I had them made from Purpleheart, which is an exotic hardwood from South America I believe. It looks a lot like what it sounds like.....dark purple/brown wood that looks very rich.

I'll post some pictures if I get time.

Something isn't right with the ratings.

I think the wrong course or layout is listed for the second round. That is the only explanation for the issue. I bet the ratings are based on an 18 hole course so all of the scores in the 60's or higher are throwing a major curve.

There was an issue when I first put up the results. Westpark was still showing an 18 hole layout. I fixed that yesterday and made sure that the AMs and Pros were listed on the correct course layout for each round.

Do you guys still see an issue today?

yesterday it showed that i shot a 1021 rated round at highland, and i had the best score of anyone in the am field that day.. if the ratings are based off an 18 hole thing.. why did this change for me at highland? i can understand the west park round seeing as it had to add 6 more holes, but why would my round rating from highland get lower?

I believe this has to do with the Pros actually playing Highland first while the Ams played Westpark first. When I initially put up the scores, this was not taken into consideration. After correcting the course layouts to show that Westpark is 25 holes, and that the Pros played Highland first while the Ams played Westpark first, the Ams ratings went down.

This should only be true for the rounds on Sunday.

I'm no ratings expert, but I did expect a drop in ratings for the Ams once I corrected the course layouts. It makes sense. Prior to the correction, you were probably being compared to the highest rated Pro to determine ratings. Afterward, you were probably compared to the highest rated Am.

At least, that's my take on it. But again, I'm no expert on ratings.

By the way, you still have the best rated round in the AMs at 981 for your -2 round at Highland. (Great round!)
