I don't think people really are questioning the re-throw aspect of the rules, rather the non-penalty stroke on top of it.
Stroke and distance the last two year was too crazy and this year was too simple.
A hybird of the rules is really what is best, imo. Holes like 10 and 12 needs stroke and distance to make them tougher. Holes like 13 and 17 don't need it b/c they are hard enough.
