My buddy and I are playing this year for the first time. He will be playing two and 11.2 and me at a 12.0. I am thinking about doing the request to be flighted together what do you guys think? Would we possibly be in the same flight anyway? Counting down the days!August 8, 2019 at 4:46 pm #46543
I forgot to mention we both are in the 49 and under group.August 8, 2019 at 4:51 pm #46544Dale McMathParticipant
If you want to ensure being in the same flight then absolutely opt. Even a .1 differential can put you in different flights and different courses. I come each year with two buddies and we always opt to play in the same flight just to be on the safe side.August 8, 2019 at 4:51 pm #46545Timothy TullioParticipant
Matt, welcome. I’ve gone 10 of the last 11 years with a gang of 40 players and will be playing in the U49 group (6.8 hcp). i would guess you guys will be ok but one year we a buddy and i were split up by .1 hcp. This meant a 2nd rental car and different courses for each of us. you could roll the dice or make the request.August 8, 2019 at 4:55 pm #46548
That is what I am leaning towards. I think it would make for a fun week and be less stressful on transportation since we only have one vehicle. Thanks for responding!August 8, 2019 at 4:57 pm #46549Tommy BriggsBlocked
Since the -1 difference in handicaps is hardly noticeable, I would request the flight change.
Now if I was playing as a 2 handicap and was looking to drop to play as a 1, that 1 stroke is far more significantAugust 8, 2019 at 9:40 pm #46551
Thanks all! I was mostly nervous about doing it since we can’t both win flight. I was also thinking how crappy it would be to see that I WOULD have done well in the flight I should have been in. Anyway, the odds of us both being a flight winner in separate flights is 1:2500. Anyway….close enough to me and 1 stroke not that different. I will say that I picked a bad time to have 2 career rounds in a row that brought me down from a 13.6 in just 2 revisions!
Starting to get excited to see the course lineup. This is only the second time in MB (we are from the Philly area). Go E-A-G-L-E-S!August 9, 2019 at 8:22 am #46553
I have been in flight 5 or 6 for years here are the past index ranges for the flights you might land:
2018 5 – 8.6 to 9.8
6 – 9.9 to 11.2
7 – 11.3 to 13.1
8 – 13.2 to 16.5
2017 5 – 8.5 to 9.9
6 – 10 to 12.2
7 – 12.3 to 15.0
8 – 15.1 to 27.1
2016 5 – 7.9 to 9.2
6 – 9.3 to 11.1
7 – 11.2 to 13.6
8 – 13.7 to 16.5
Flights 5 & 6 are same courses and flights 7 & 8 same courses also.
I you want to send me your email I can forward over a fight sheet I have made over the years.
Enjoy and welcome to the WA.

Thanks David this is exactly the information I was trying to find. I realize they can change every year. Just to be safe we will request to be flighted since it’s not going to make much of a difference anyway.August 9, 2019 at 8:39 pm #46565Scott GreenwellParticipant
I’d like to have that flight sheet you mentioned to Matt if you don’t mind. My email is email@example.com
Thanks!August 14, 2019 at 7:13 am #46639
Hope you got my email yesterday
