Good Morning Braycobb:

In the gross chart you have Seti in second with 1000 points and RGallant in 3rd with 1500 points. Please clarify.

Also I was wondering if I received 2500 points for playoff win or points are shared at 2000 points on a tie.

It would be nice to have a chart on all players points before the playoffs so everyone can do the math.

Thanks, Good Luck this week!!

Cheers StorminDunes

P.S. There was definately a glitch on that 13th hole on the third round. Tough one.

The correct standings are shown above...Simply a sorting issue when I copied them from Excel.

Points were awarded as discussed here... viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3848

The winner, regardless of whether is was in regulation or a playoff received the 1st place points. from 2nd on down and ties split the points between the places. For the 1st playoff event, the OGT system calculated points based on their internal system. I didn't update the points awarded for that individual event. I did update the overall points for the Tour.

So this is probably an unpopular opinion and I should probably keep my mouth shut especially since I'm the new guy (and also not very good) but I'm curious what everyone else's thoughts are so I'll ask anyways. Does everyone appreciate the extreme course conditions that we play in the last round or 2 of these tournaments? All I can do is chuckle when I hit a perfect drive right down the middle only to watch the ball catch a sloped part of an extremely fast fairway and then end up in thick rough. Then I get to play a 4 iron from 115 yards. I'll keep my mouth shut on green speeds since everybody else seems to figure it out just fine. I get that we are all playing the same course with same conditions but why are we intentionally make it so impractical? (I suppose it does prevent stormindunes from shooting 50's every time :D) Don't get me wrong I did really enjoy the season, and I'm super appreciative of what you do braycobb to make this league go -Dave

P.S. If you haven't played round 4 yet, good luck on hole 6. Right hickorybob? ;)

Davechow, a big thankyou for saying what I was too timid to say !!

I've done my best to keep my club settings "real-life" (for me at age 63) but playing course settings as difficult as that is almost impossible for me. Having missed the island green from 236 yards (about my average driving distance) I was then faced with a 3rd, 5th, 7th & 9th shot of 222 yards over water with no "bail-out" area. My average 3 wood is about 215 yards. Eventually my anger & adreneline got me to the green ! Might as well just go back to Optishot SeasonPass & turn everything back up to 100 per-cent & hit the ball 320 yards :oops:

Best of luck to everybody.

1. When we first set up the Optishot Tour there were no club restrictions and courses were generally set "easy". By the 2nd year, the complaints started saying things were too "cartoonish". A lot of testing was put in to determine the appropriate driver settings that would at least come close to real life. Now, we have club guidelines.

2. If the goal of the tour is to make sure everyone can shoot par or better then we can set the conditions to make that happen and get rid of club guidelines. The vast majority of the regular events are set to middle tees which become driver-wedge for a lot of players. The Major events and now the playoff, and especially the Tour Championship, are set with harder conditions to facilitate the best rising to the top.

The goal of 1 and 2 was try and emulate "real life" to the best of our ability. I think we have done that. As the next season approaches, the gates are wide open to mandate as many guidelines regarding course and club settings as is desired.

Golfers....I will be heading out of town tomorrow and will not be able to close the Tour Championship until I return on 8 April.

If there is a tie atop the leaderboard after regulation, you guys can set your own playoff event and work things out.

Fairway and Greens!!!

Optishot tour championship Round 1 : https://www.twitch.tv/stormindunes/mana ... /243961755

Round 2 : https://www.twitch.tv/stormindunes/mana ... /244339537, https://www.twitch.tv/stormindunes/mana ... /244348407

https://www.twitch.tv/stormindunes/mana ... /244349612, https://www.twitch.tv/stormindunes/mana ... /244359078

Just read all the comments on conditions, so I guess I will weigh in on the subject.

I too like it the way it is, but my thoughts are, Optishot uses 100 -100 for their tournies, so it would be better practice to use the same settings. My friends and I

have been playing extreme conditions since day one playing Optishot. If we play back tees, Very demanding bunkers and rough, so hitting the fairway and greens are

important. Alot of players dont put in their videos in, so guidelines of 88 % may or may not being used. I say 100 100. All the way up-OK. Back Tees. Tough. LOL

Thanks for all the fun this year gents. Good Luck !!

My single biggest complaint is when a perfect drive rolls sideways or backwards into deep rough. That doesn't seem fair. Fairways should be slow enough to hold shots in my opinion. I'll go with the group though. 230 yard island green par 3's are a bit ridiculous too but at least there is only the one.
