I usually fixate on a line or two from a favorite song while I'm getting ready to putt. That relaxes me and blocks out any negative thoughts. Lately it's been a lot of Weird Al songs.

Ahh, I see. I didn't notice that it was a 3 day tournament. It just looked weird having the #9 guy in the world (as of the end of 2014) in a B-tier that only attracted a total of 25 Open, Masters,...

There's only 25 pro and advanced players in a B-Tier and only 26 in the other divisions? I thought everything was bigger in Texas.

So what's the story with Wall City? I couldn't find any info about them online. Buying equipment in the mid to late 90s was way different than it is nowadays.

So if x = meters and y = feet the formula would be "3x + a little = y"? ;)

I agree with all of this. It should be up to a TD. I wouldn't force them to do it one way or another but if my $2 ace fund money goes to a guy who hits an ace during a playoff I'd be happy with that.
