While playing last summer in T.O, I learned about a ranking/wagering system employed by a number U.S disc golf clubs. It is called tags.

Each player gets a dog tag with a number engraved on it. The tags are numbered one through however many players are involved. The tags are kept on a clip on your bag and your ranking is the number on the tag.

How it works. Any tag player can challenge any other tag player to play "for tags".

Tags 1-5 give 6-10 a one stroke advantage and 11-15 a two stroke advantage etc.

6-10 would give a one stroke advantage to 11-15 etc.

If the player with the higher number beats the player with lower, they switch tags.

The best thing about this is that it encourages friendly competition on a regular basis. As well, you can join in at any time. It just means you start at the back of the bus.

I will be organizing this a little closer to the start of the season.

So far research suggests that this game will require an initial investment of about 10 bucks a person.

Seeing as no amount of math could ever decide what the initial rankings should be, the system will be simple. I will send out an email. Rankings will be done in order of response. There will then be a deadline for payment. Miss the deadline, get bumped to the back.

Regular, affordable, unsupervised, gaming.

I'll just wait a while to register. Don't want to hog those lowest tags all season.
