Yea I am still kind of up in the air about the distance only penalty. Climo was being interviewed and basically blasted it.

The unfortunate thing about the "distance only" penalty being used here is they decided to use it everywhere keeping it simple for players. Ideally as a course designer, I would prefer that certain rules constructs only be used a little bit here and there and not everywhere for better balance on a course. It think Harold would also prefer to have a variety of penalty structures as it made sense for different holes if the Winthrop Gold course was permanent. But when you have a temp course without permanent signs and players from all over coming in to play it, you have to simplify things and some variety gets sacrificed in the process.
