Congratulations to Ken on his fabulous finish at the Crescent City Cup this weekend! 12-8, 15th place!
To compare it to PGA, this event is a "major" I'd say, having featured a host of the best players in North America several over 2000 rating (and Ken BEAT won).
This was an "open" event, meaning there was a wide spectrum of players of varying ratings competing together. Ken won the class C prize, finishing best among those seeded in the bottom third. His rating took a monstrous leap of over 100 points, to nearly 1500. Way to represemt!
