Interesting point. I've only played 1 tournament that had water at any spot on the course (aside from public parks that have the fountains sporadically) is this a turn off for the big tourneys? This will be my largest tourney i've played in, so I was planning on packing a crap-ton of water and gatorade for the long tourney rounds.

Water is nice, but I never expect water. I do feel like the tournament directors have their s**t together when there is water, but it's not going to make or break a tournament for me.

Now in running the Evansville Open last summer, we supplied roughly 1200 bottles of water. This was mainly spurred by the 105+ temperature all weekend long and the fact that I didn't want any of my competitors to die. Literally, die.

All of this talk makes me want to go. Trying to get a buddy to go. So several of you have been multiple times. Here is my question, camp or hotel? Where is everyone camping down there?

Super 8 North. Late night drunken poker games in the lobby and CTPs from the ground to the third floor windows.

100% agree - A few years ago at a tourney I overheard a well known Pro go on a rant because he "was an athlete" and how dare people not have water for him on the course. He came across as a real @$$ and my thought was that as "an athlete" why was he so stupid to plan on playing a tourney without proper preparation (water).

I just think the AM cap should be like someone else on this thread said. If ur over 975 or have cashed then ur AM status goes bye bye.
