I think everything went really well today at check-in. There are people in town from all over the U.S.A! Thanks for picking St. Louis as one of your tournament destinations! I hope we meet all of your expectations, and then some! If you didn't make it to check-in, no big deal. Just make it to your respective course a few minutes earlier tomorrow morning so that we can get you all squared away. When you get back to Endicott (tourney central), come visit us so that we can get your player's pack taken care of. Also, it looks like we will have enough tournament shirts to give all of the PRO divisions one as well. We will take care of you on Sunday morning before your 3rd round.
The courses are looking sweet (especially the new steps on Hole 7 Endicott), and the parks department did some last minute mowing for us to ensure that everyone has a good time. The 3 STL courses are set up nice and tough, but fair, and Rock Spring is The Rock for a reason...either you got it that day or you don't!
I had one minor snafu at check-in - about 4-5 AM players (various divisions) that pre-registered might
have recieved a Level 3 Player's Pack instead of a Level 1. I have the short list of people that it might have occured with in hand and would like to correct the mistake. If you can just bring back the discs to tournament central and show us that you didn't get the premium Discraft disc, I will make it worth your while. I really hope I didn't make you scratch your head too much...
There are some sweet CTPs for each round on every course, so make sure those tee shots count! David Feldberg was kind enough to sign a bunch of sweet Innova discs for CTPs, even though he had to head down to Texas for some physical therapy and another tournament- http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/85360
. Oh well, maybe he will decide to stick around next year. I apologize for anyone's disappointment...I am right there with you.
Shoot well and I look forward to seeing everyone over the period of the weekend. The MPO Final 9 should be a blast! I am not sure Dave could hang with these young guns anyways!
Have fun and bang those chains!
