2012 Player Of The Year Awards - Results
September 03, 2012 02:38PM
Pro Men, Matt Orum - Matt with 18 wins in 23 events had another great year. He is one of the top players in the world, and always showed support for the Southern Nationals.

Pro Women, Michelle Cornelius - finishing with 18 top three finishes in 19 events, also held onto a 1 point victory in the points race last year.

Am Men, Philip Tait - Philip with 24 events and finishing 2nd in the points race. Philip is one of the nicest guys You will meet on the course, and is always pushing himself to get better. His attitude and dedication to the SN earned him the POY award.

Am Women, Dee Dee Fussner - finishing with 15 top threes in 15 events in her first year of tournament play. DeeDee then went on to Win the SNAC and finish 3rd in the SNPC. It will be fun watching this new face fight it out in Open Women in the future.

Sportsman, Brooks Newell - Just this weekend Brooks drove all the way from Baton Rouge to Mobile just to help with the SNPC, He stayed out in the hot sun spotting all weekend, plus brought several water kegs and tents for shade. Brooks has been along time supporter of the SN and was well deserving of the Sportsman Award.

Volunteer, Bill Tyler - Bill not only been one to help out TD's anyway he can at several events, but has also been the guy behind the camera taking thousands of pictures all over the SN. With so much time dedicated to the SN, He more the deserved the Volunteer Award.

Tournament Director(s), SouthSide - If You have ever been to a Southside events You would know why they earned this award. Very well ran events, free lunches that should be call buffets with the amount they cook, and huge payouts that have made the Smack Down one of the biggest events in the SN. Southside had simply done an outstanding job year after year.

I dont have a problem with any of the winners. I just think in my opinion Cam should have won Pro Player of the year
Re: 2012 Player Of The Year Awards - Results
September 04, 2012 12:07PM
Cam is taking the world by storm and I'm a big fan, but in regards to LAST season, I don't see how anybody could pick against Matt Orum.

Cam played 28 events, won 7, second 8, third 5

Matt played 23 events, won 18!, second 4

Matt also blew everybody away in winnings and score.

A lot of Cam's most recent success is during the current season or in a big PDGA event.

I am a fan of Cam, he's a friend of mine. But, bazkitcase is right, Matt Orum deserved the Southern Nationals Pro Player of the Year award because he really spend most of his season supporting Southern Nationals and gained most of his success here.

Cam deserves World player of the year, or at least Rookie of the Year for PDGA!

Congrats all!

Southside would like to thank the board for the TD of the year award. We work hard at our tournament every year and try to make everyone happy. We will continue to support Southern Nationals as we have in the past. Southside has in the past donated $2,100 to Chris LaSond's am championship and pro championship. The following year we gave WW $1,500 cash. This year we donated $500 cash and bought food for SNDG pro championships. We do this because we love playing in Southern Nationals events.

Brad, not sure why that's even relevant? But to answer your question, yes, one time.

Southside, I am not on here to put down any individuals on THIS thread but I just believe some were more deserving than a couple who won. Some people got snubbed, that's life I guess. Even Bob Barker gets snubbed.

I feel like the intermediate men division got overlooked this past season.

How is the POY awards actually determined? Just a vote by the BoD? Is it based on all factors points, events, top finishes? Or is it based on the BoD opinions and feelings towards certain individuals?

You also have this thing called Score that is on the players stats sheet and it states " The SN score is an attempt to try and determine who the top disc golfer in a division is despite the number of events they attend."

Top 4 Adv Scores
1) 34.26
2) 13.04
3) 15.61
4) 24.22

Top 4 Am Scores
1) 32.77
2) 31.95
3) 37.47
4) 29.29

Something seems obvious there

What about the idea of players voting on who the player of the years should be? Could be a weighted system of player votes and BoD votes. I know I spoke with Pat Barnes about this after the SNAC and I've heard him mention this on another thread, so can this be put into action?

Lloyd, I just want to point out that you can't compare the "score" metric across different divisions because it is primarily affected by the size of the division. Intermediate "scores" are usually going to be higher than advanced "scores".

its interesting that the two people who posted after me were both the advanced points champion and Am player of the year. Funny how that has worked in the past.

No putt, do you understand what Casey is saying? Score is based on size of division. And added to that,,, of a player consistently comes in the top 5 in int, that player isn't really an int, he's an adv and should be playing there.

Why should the lower am field even be brought up for player of the year? If the top guy in intermediate played advanced he wouldn't have done near as good or near as many points. Phillip played in more events than anyone in the intermediate field. If he played intermediate, I bet he would have won the points race and had more top 3 finishes than majority of the intermediates. The intermediate men should not even be in the running for am player of the year in my oppinion because they are not playing with the highest am players.

If you really respected phillip and liked him as a person, you wouldn't keep bringing this issue up.

On the scores issue, I have a higher rating than rivers in open. I am not near as good as rivers in my opinion.
