Worked for me. I know I'm not going to keep up with the McBeths and Kolings at this tournament, so for me at that event, making the cut is the goal. The year I did make the cut, I know I felt way more pressure approaching 18's green on Saturday when I knew I was on the cut-bubble than I did Sunday having made the cut. I figured it was do or die and I had to get on the green in two and make my three to make the cut. So I went for it, made it, got my first and only three ever on the hole, then sweated it out for 45 minutes before it was clear I was above the cut line.

The lack of financial "incentive" didn't stop me from throwing my lowest round to date on Sunday though, because the money never crossed my mind. In fact, I think if I'd been motivated because of the money, I'd have probably made things worse for myself. Not that I'd necessarily have played worse, but how I felt about my round might have been different. It's all about perspective. It was a great day. Focusing on the fact that I needed to be three strokes better to win more money would make it seem like a lot less great.

I made the cut one year, then got 11th, then got 8th, then MISSED the cut. Guess which year I had the most fun?

ALL OF THEM. OK, I was a little mopey Saturday night after missing the cut, but I spent all day Sunday taking pics instead of kicking rocks in the parking lot.

They also seem to pay out to more right-handed throwers than left-handed. This happens all the time in every sport.

Did anybody notice that Ricky was forehanding a putter on the upshot on 18 the final day? I thought that was weird considering the angle he needed to hyzer into the green.
