Course Updates for the 32nd Annual Capital of Texas Open (COTO):

All COTO courses have Circle 1(not Live Oak) and OB painted. We will continue to put up banners, flags and signs tomorrow as part of the final course prep.

Live Oak Brewing - mowed and marked for the opening event, the O.B. Open. It's great practice before COTO on placement shots. This is a really fun layout and the wild flowers are in full bloom at the brewery.

Lost a tie dye towel at Roy G and a pink proto McBeth kong/Zeus at Met hole 15 in the water near the reeds. Disc says Be. And has Greg Killam pdga number. Thanks.

Bradley Larson    May 22 at 12:32am

MINT Discs   May 21 at 11:10am

Just wanted to inquire why ratings are not consistent. Yesterday, a +5 from the longs at Roy G was 944 rated. Today, a +5 is 935 rated. Conditions were identical. Why can’t those ratings just match? Kinda BS in my opinion.

Jacob M Stone   May 20 at 11:52pm

ratings fluctuate based on the ratings of players playing the course. also the pdga will tell you there is a +/- 30 on the ratings that is normal between rounds played on an individual course. Its an imperfect algorithm but if another is developed I'm sure it will be implemented.

MINT Discs   May 21 at 11:03am

Hey Cade, ratings are reflective of who played on the course. If the players playing the course have lower ratings(MA1) than the day before (MPO/40/50), then generally the ratings will reflect that. In MA1 yesterday, we also had some lower rated folks shoot the best rounds. So in a way it can bring down the ratings. Hope that helps.

Cade Woolley   May 21 at 12:34pm

This does help. Thank you. I was just trying to expose a flaw in the ratings system. Not anything against the event at all, Mint always kills it! This is more a stab at the ratings and hoping it changes one day.

Bradley Larson    May 20 at 12:06pm

Lost a green first run eternal longhorn with dfx goose gang stamp in tall grass straight off tee maybe 300'. Id appreciate it back if found!

Bradley Larson   May 22 at 12:34am

Thanks to whoever turned it in to lost n found! I got it.

Dave Cervantes    May 19 at 10:30pm

Any chance tee times will be spaced out more tomorrow at East Metro? Or possibly a larger time gap between divisions at least? A 4hr round wasn't necessary and could've been avoided. Huge back up on 8 really killed any momentum with 30 min wait.

Dave Cervantes   May 20 at 12:35am

NO DAVE!!! Just be better prepared for another looong round

Hayden Hunt   May 22 at 3:10pm

Enforce a putter mandatory off of the tee box and boom! Problem solved.

William Ocel   June 7 at 12:59am

IMO East Metro was ill-suited for tournament play, especially for the lower tier, less accurate players. Finding discs in the tall grass at The Met is a breeze compared to the 5 foot tall ragweed and heavy thicket that lines many fairways at EM. Will definitely skip future tournaments there.

Hayden Hunt   May 18 at 7:51pm

Oh cool, you're on my card tomorrow morning. We can talk about it then

Jacob M Stone   May 18 at 8:05pm

Hell yeah. I called emerald tavern they had nothing this weekend.

Mike Chesnut    May 18 at 3:56am

For friday in MA60, Me and Rob tee off at 8:10. There are 4/MA60 teeing off at 8:20 and 5/MA60 teeing off at 8:30.

Michael Ortega   May 18 at 4:23am

Looks like your playing with 2 mp70 guys at 8:10

MINT Discs   May 18 at 5:41am

Correct about mp70

Mike Chesnut   May 19 at 2:49am

Sorry, did not see till today

Chris McEnaney    May 17 at 6:45pm

If I am still able to I would like to sign up for MA2, looks like there are 3 spots left after registration closed

MINT Discs   May 17 at 10:51pm

Please email [email redacted] with your PDGA #, division, and best email. We will do our best to make it happen!

zach Mckelvey    May 17 at 2:10am

Accidentally left a purple Tacolope at Roy G. Earlier today, hole 15 or hole 12 I think, it has my partner Brenda's name on it in pretty sure.

James McGowan   May 17 at 2:52am

My group found it I believe we text the number on it.

zach Mckelvey   May 17 at 3:18am

Picking it up tomorrow thank you!

Eric Stuber    May 16 at 9:13pm

Any chances I get in if the pool doesn’t fill up completely?

Adam Case   May 16 at 9:56pm

I would think so. They normally let everyone in off the wait list.

Aaron Collins    May 16 at 7:48pm

I lost a well seasoned Champion Destroyer on new 17 (probably short and definitely right of the basket) at Roy G about an hour ago. If anyone finds it and returns it, I’d be happy to give them a new disc in exchange. The disc has ink on both sides and says C63948 (my last name initial, and my PDGA #) on the front.

Alex King   May 18 at 9:49pm

check your FB. Someone found it and posted on FDG.
