Hi Darrell from Kentucky…Brian from Texas here. We rode together at World Tour and had a good day. Both your and Richard’s comments on Blackmore are right on. I had the opportunity to talk to the GM/head pro after the round because a guy in our group left at the turn and mistakenly took my official scorecard with him. Got it straightened out but I told the GM/head pro that his course was, in my opinion, unplayable and he agreed with me. Would say I hope to see you next year but after 21 years I won’t be back.
Bob, thanks for your input. In my opinion, if ONE player is able to play within his handicap differentials with the course conditions we endured and none of the other 52 players were able to even come close, then something is amiss. Don’t get me wrong, I played poorly (manly due to soggy cart path only courses) and am only trying to make a point. My opinion does come from personal observation.
Here is another disqualification joke: In one flight, the winner finished 11 strokes ahead of the 2nd place golfer. The explanation given was that he played within the handicap parameters. I question how the other 52 golfers were unable to do so with basically the same index. If course conditions kept the other 52 from being competitive, wouldn’t it seem unlikely that an equally capable golfer could far outperform the others?
