    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!

    I forgot to mention we both are in the 49 and under group.

    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.

    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.

    Matt Miller

    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!

    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 significant

    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!

    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.

    Matt Miller

    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.

    Hey David,
