I as well would love to go to events
I wouldn’t  waste my money if I didn’t think I could win
But you gotta have points
You can be lucky enough to snag a play in event spot
If you have a fast internet connection
For a few events

I think there have been a lot of positive changes recently, but it is still very much a "who you know" sport and everyone outside the top ~50ish hitters are all in the same boat. Just have to learn to make a name for yourself and self-promote when possible. Will make it that much sweeter when I make worlds this year haha.

Animal, I hear I am right around the corner from you and frequent your old stomping grounds at John Price Park. I think we may have had a conversation at JPP years and years ago.

I feel for you Jason, this sport is now the polar opposite of the grass roots event it started out as  :P

   Phil, didn't see your comment to Jason. You are correct

Same for the ILDC in Mexico last week. Last year I guess there were 20 teams, this year only 8 due to most of the pros going to China for IGANZ yet I still have no idea how you even get involved in the Mexico team event. I have seen a lot of posts on FB and IG of guys getting ready for or traveling to China for this event and to be honest I haven't heard of half of them.

It's frustrating trying to compete, I know that I will never be able to earn enough points to move up in ranks so I am stuck going to one or two events a year to try and qualify for worlds.

And right here is the biggest problem with this sport. This guy can't go to events because he was not 1 of the chosen few

Guys should start posting numbers like the old days, let the golf channel and everyone else know there’s big bombers out there who ain’t ‘in the show’

It worked somewhat for the current world champion.

Just a thought...
