View Full Version : Epic first for International G0

We filled our first G0 tournament ever today in an Okinawa/Alex/Standard tournament.

Really shows what a simple change in our scheduling can bring about. Even with these trial tournaments screwing things up for us a lot of people are playing again and it's great to see packed tournaments.

Congrats to chris060870 on his win in this tournament. #8 for him.

Wow, I've never seen that many in a tourney. Heck, I personally have only been in maybe one that had 40. Imagine if they go further and give us more tourneys and more variation like Minna (as well the new promotion system). I know we wouldn't fill up simultaneous G0 tourneys like Minna, but I think many more people would play overall. All we need other than that is trophies and a price cut while making it downloadable on the PSN. Then the floodgates would open!

Amazingly the Kratos/Rain/Highland tourney a bit later "only" got 46 people........

But that was cool to get 50 I had signed up but missed the reservation time; so I saw 43 and thought, wow...could I be shut out? I got the last spot (at least I was assigned "50")

Man, i can't believe I missed it!!! When i got back to my ps3 I had FOUR messages from friends telling me all about the full tourny :) I was disappointed, although with -22 for the winner, I stood NO CHANCE, especially at OKI, where I cannot SEE the blasted dots on the green. LOL

yeah, yeah, adjust contrast. been there, tried that, didn't help me. bad eyes. LOL

Agreed, didn't look until just now.

SEE you guys can agree...


I stole it from somewhere, don't remember where, it was on my myspace page, I thought it might be too distraction but I like it.

The best thing about the tourney was the 6 straight hole outs from hole 3 to hole 8...

worst thing was me SMASHING into the tee-box marker on 13 ruining any chance I had at competing for a pod and top positions.

good times
