That was an exhilarating but brutal stretch of events from the Champions Cup to the DDO: eleven tournament rounds in eighteen days! I’m sure the players are thankful for some time to collect themselves and rest their bodies before we begin the West Coast swing. Everyone needs a little break once in a while, right?
This season has been absolute mayhem in the MPO division. It seems like we have seen more variety on our lead and chase cards this season than in any season previously. Part of that is due to injuries and inconsistent play from some of the top names, part of that is due to the fact that we have seen greater variety of courses at this point of the season than we usually see, and part of that is because the field is deep and extremely talented. Top ten finishes are guaranteed for no one.
In years past, heading out west featured time in the woods and hills at Beaver State and DeLa. And it still does, just as stops on the Silver Series. The big show, however, heads to courses where the big arms get a chance to show off at the OTB and Portland Opens.
Methodology: We combine an algorithmic objective ranking with subjective ballots submitted by UWDG staff. The algorithm uses a standardized scoring model to compare elite events, awards competition, and cash bonuses, and features a decay function that gradually phases out past results.
