great post sly..

its the one 9 darter I am waiting to see,after seeing so many which in itself is obviously a good thing, in so many majors the double of would make a 9 darter just that much more special.

edited the post above bradders, it was 13-8 sets


Wiki has it down as 13-8 in legs, but if you go to the year itself it says best of 3 leg sets.

The caption on the vid said best of 25 sets though, and the scoreboard also has numbers for legs and sets. How many legs in a set?

Has to be 3 legs per set, surely? Still a substantial distance, 10 sets more than the Masters.

you were correct bradders,,,best of 3 leg sets.

The wiki page said it was legs, but when you click on the year itself it clarifies it
