    I agree! You folks take some heat at times, but great job getting the courses out!

    I think you guys are misreading a healthy conversation. If you wanted to see some crap roll down hill, you should have out here ten years ago. I think some of the conversations lead to, well, some confrontation. THAT, was fiesty!

    I guess I have to say this. 🙂 I’m changing my thoughts on the 9 stroke max rule. I love fast play as much as anyone. But, in all reality, when did this tourney become about speeding things up to this point? I know that the speed of play is the number one complaint but are there other ways? Where are the marshalls to put groups on notice? Where is the ready play golf? Where is the provisional off the tee when a shot could be in trouble? Why are people marking a 6 inch putt? Why aren’t 4somes policing themselves to stay with the group in front of them? People don’t mark their ball for identification. I’ve seen that far too often and it can slow down play. Will the three minute search rule help? I’m sure you all could come up with lots of ways to increase the speed of the event. Maybe the WA folks could put together a flyer on picking up the pace.

    The threesome thing was abolished, as I hear it, because it was hard to monitor folks riding alone, etc. so that’s now out. That did speed up play, however.

    I loved this tourney because it was the closest thing to a Major most of us would get. I don’t play because I’m all that concerned about the pace of play, unless we start getting over that 5 hour thing. I suppose this rule changes that some, but, we’ll see if it really impacts the speed of a few rounds.

    10 days for me!

    Been there Dale. I had a friend take a 23 on a par 5….he still finished in about the middle because he had three decent rounds. Without that 23 he would have been top 12, I think that’s what we figured.

    At any rate, this will help and I’m for that!

    We’ll have to see how it plays out. Glad golf, and the WA, are finally making some decisions to speed up play. I will say this, I’d hate to lose my flight by a stroke or two when someone should have had an 11 and only took a 9. Just saying. 🙂

    Well, the 9 max count isn’t intended for tourney play either. I think the OB rule would speed things up faster than the 9 shot rule., personally. No more return trips to the tee. The higher HCPS might benefit more from the 9 stroke max in terms of playing time, I’d guess.

    What? Really? Pick up and take a 9?

    I think my All-Time favorite would be the Thistle. Love that place. Glen Dornach a close second!
