Hi Mark – At 100 players you’d have 7 “B” groups on the entire course or 3.5 per 9 holes. Last time we had shotguns was 2019 we averaged just 94 players per course.
Shotgun starts won’t please everyone but it is best for the tournament moving forward. Logistics of friends traveling together, uniform playing conditions, scores arrive at HQ earlier as a whole (and though we don’t have an interest in the skins operator, we know many do).
Pace we don’t believe will be affected dramatically in either direction. I would argue it’s better to avoid the heat starting at 8:30 rather than a good amount of people finishing at 3:30 or later. In a shotgun, everyone is at the same pace as opposed to tee times where an earlier group will likely finish quicker than the last group. Uniformity is best for fairness at the end of the day.
Lots to consider and we did not take a major decision like this lightly. Hope this helps.
They will be a partner, just don’t have the rates yet for 2022.
$20/day for Mon/Tues only, net, cash only, covers the whole course.
We’ve reached out to a few partners and awaiting responses. Historically they do not provide these discounts to us until closer to the summer. Will keep everyone posted if/when we secure group rates.
Max 9 gross is in effect at Q School.
TBD but I can say some of our furthest north end courses are not presently hosting.
I probably didn’t word my last response well enough. When I say transfer to GHIN, I did not mean 1 by 1 post your last 20 scores. I mean give the NEW association your OLD GHIN # to take it over. The API will move all your data over. That way it retains all data and you just post it to a new platform. It sounds like you’ve already done the former but hoping to help others who may be confused.
Bruce – what Harry said is accurate. If you have a USHandicap or another online service it’s good through whatever you paid for. If not through August then yes you need to make the change before World Am. We sent an email around 1/1/22 with this info, but assume not everyone got it / read it. I will clarify you need to TRANSFER your scores to GHIN, so you should not have any lapse in data so long as you provide your state association with your current GHIN number given to you by USHandicap.
Harry there’s a rumor that the grandfathering will only be 1 year, but I cannot confirm.
Louie – no need for a survey. It was done at World Am last year. It was 100%… inconclusive! Almost completely split 50/50 with over 1,500 responses. That said, we intend to go back to shotgun starts at 8:30am.
Yes, no, net only.
we had a little over 300 last year and are striving for a little over 400 this year.
Hey everyone we did not receive a code. Apologies.
put in a request for one. if they accept it would be in 7-10 biz days.
