Congratulations to all of the winners, and a big thanks to all of the players and volunteers! Let the Club know what all you think went well, and what could be improved, about this year's Open...May 2013 comes around more quickly than one might think, so please share your feedback.

We'll post up a little recap on the website's Updates Page, including links to hundreds of photos taken throughout the weekend, sometime in the next day or two...here's a quick pic of our Men's Open Division winner, and now 4-time defending St. Louis Open Champion, Nikko Locastro shortly after coming from behind on the Final 9 to beat Will Schusterick by a single stroke over the 63 hole event:

Thanks for the kind words Jeff - you know it takes a lot of effort to handle one of these big tournaments so I appreciate the support. We also had a lot of compliments on Facebook, so the general theme was a great success. We are putting together our list of things that went well and things that did not, and we will review them and keep a list for next year.

Club President, and STLO Tournament Director, Dave West asked that this message be posted:

"2012 STL Open Payouts:

We have heard some questions about the STL Open payouts - especially on the Am side - so I wanted to provide some details:

On the am side we spent 73% of the money received on players' packs (over $6,500). We wanted to provide all ams a great quality players pack and have everyone feel like it was worth participating. To do the payouts, of the $55 entry fee, the pdga fee was $4 and we charged $36 as our best estimate for the players packs (which is 65% of the $55 fee - so we actually overpaid the field). Trophies and merchandise vouchers for the ams totaled about $3,000. CTPs for the ams was $630. Bottom line - we paid the am field about 115% of their entry fee.

A little more info about the players packs - the retail value was $60 (see our website for what was in it), and then add on the Saturday night meal and event (our cost of this was $8 per person - retail about $15). So the players packs was fairly valued for ams at $75 (not bad for the $55 entry fee!)."

The pdga just updated ratings and I noticed that everybody who played in intermediate had an extremely low rating for the third round out at sioux. Personally I shot pretty poor out there and my rating reflects that, but it's about 100 points lower than what I would expect. The pros shot at sioux for their second round, and Schusterick's 54 was 1054 rated. The following day the best intermediate score was a 66 which was 871 rated. There was a pro who shot a 66 on Saturday which was rated 963.

I might be missing something, but that just doesn't add up.


Also, the official results from the c tier at endicott are missing in action.

I was looking at that too. In Intermediate Round 3 at Sioux 66 took the hot round and only a rating of 871. Considering Par is probably 63 or more, 871 seems low. There was an Advanced Masters score in Round 3 playing at Endicott that also got a rating of 871. I wonder if the Intermediate third round was marked as Endicott instead of Sioux?

Look at 55 in Open and 55 in intermediate. 3 points diff. Not sure but it seems it works, or am I missing something?

Pros played Sioux Round 2 (sat 2:30pm) and Intermediate played Sioux Round 3 (sun 9:00am).
If you take an Open Round 2 (SP) score of 67, they got a 955 rating. But if you take an Intermediate Round 3 (SP) score of 67, they got a 861 rating (94 point difference).


Now an accurate example, Pros played Endicott Round 3 (sun 9:00am) and Intermediate played Endicott Round 2 (sat 2:30pm).
If you take an Open Round 3 (EN) score of 62, they got a 929 rating. Then if you take an Intermediate Round 2 (EN) score of 62 they got the same 929 rating.


So something seems to be off of the Intermediate Round 3 at Sioux Passage.
