    Steven: I reached out to Scott & the WA Team and this e-mail is legitimate. I somehow unsubscribed to the e-mails which means I can’t validate my handicap. I am going to follow the directions on the e-mail.

    I received the same e-mail, titled “World Am – Unsubscribe” . I didn’t unsubscribe from anything and the e-mail looks like spam, but we need the Tournament Committee to let us know.

    Scott: Real E-Mail or Spam?

    Well said Rick.

    Who is this guy and why is he intruding on our golf tournament board?

    Obviously I am in the minority, but I loved the tee times during the two or three years that we did them. Pace of play greatly improved with the tee times as the average round went from 5 to 6 hours to 4 1/2 hours. When you put 104 (26 foursomes) players on a course at one time, you have 8 “B” teams and the course is immediately stagnant. The general procedure of play with the shotgun, was hit a shot, go to your ball and wait at least 10 minutes. Tee times also made the practice and golf range situation much better and I didn’t feel guilty for wanting to work on my game before the round.

    It is also much better for the golf courses as they can start public play when the last tournament group gets to #2 or #3, so they can start making money earlier. In a shotgun start, the course is just completely shut down for 6 hours.

    The only downside to the tee times is what it does to the skins game.

    You guys are spot on. The player DQ’d in the finals was a 10 handicapper and shot a 74. He’s won his flight multiple times, so the fix is obviously on. Congratulations to the WA staff for making the correct decision. I hope that the 2nd place player(s) in that guy’s flight got moved up to 1st place and will receive the 1st place money. It is unfortunate that they didn’t get to play in the finals.

    Rick & Mike: I agree with your comments and don’t know why someone assumes cheating without knowing any facts. That’s very pessimistic and I prefer to believe the best in people and the ability of the playing partners to protect the Field.

    Mike: I’ve noticed that the final winner usually shoots around 67 or 68 so that lines up with your comments. I can’t speak about the ability of low handicappers not being able to win, but I believe the WA has had some low handicappers as winners in the past. I also noticed that a 10 handicapper shot a 74 in the finals and was DQ’d, which is embarrassing. I hope the 2nd place winners in that flight got moved up to first place.

    I’m with George. How do you know the ball didn’t finish on the line? In my ten years of playing in the WA, I know the other players wouldn’t have allowed that kind of cheating.

    Scott: I think you missed Andreas Mealey for flights 35-36.

    I agree. The course lengths for the mid-Seniors were definitely long and played even longer in the wet conditions. I consistently hit driver and then a fairway wood or rescue club on all par fours. It wasn’t a lot of fun and completely different from previous years.
