It's a silly gimmick that doesn't actually accomplish anything in regards to play.
It eliminates the most boring shot in dg. The no-brainer 60 footer. There's a range around 50-150' that skill at that range rarely gains strokes. How many strokes are gained or lost from 80' among top pros? I don't think it's a lot.
Currently, there's no difference between a sub-par approach that lands 10' away and a superb approach that's pinned. Seems like an accomplishment in regards to play if a superb approach gains a stroke on a sub-par approach.
