Mississippi Disc Golf continues to evolve technology into the sport of disc golf. Between our tournament database introduced three years ago, our Pure Putt 11 app introduced eighteen months ago, and our adventure into the mid-guided Mini Manager app, we're slowly making some headway while also experiencing a grand learning curve.
In 2016 (and partially into 2017) we tracked all Mississippi tournaments with our tournament database system. While the program and it's features were received well by tournament directors and players around the state, few desired to implement and put in the effort to use on their own. Disheartening in a way, but similar to calling a work day at the local course ... if you know what I mean! Anyway, maybe a small lessons learned, and quite possibly an opportunities missed.
In any case, being a tournament recording or sanctioning body was never the goal, or desire, of MSDiscGolf. Development of technology is truly where the passion is ... to be able to bring tools to other promoters and tournament directors where events are handled more effectively and economically is the true desire.
We're presently on the cusp of offering a new system that we hope will be embraced by clubs everywhere. We'll be beta-testing soon and will be seeking prospective users to test the system. Stay tuned as we hope to have news in the near future.
