I guess the response to that is...when is McBeth not in contention? At least in terms of Dixon Jowers' commentary (he hasn't called many), the last two tourneys have been dominated by McBeth's...

Lead card through 7...-2, -3, -4, -3. McBeth through 9...-8. Can't imagine why they're paying attention to him.

Well, well, well. They've got a McBeth-cam working after all. Not live, but it looks like they're treating it like they do the FPO coverage. Just did a recap of his first two holes as the lead card...

That would be a start. I'm a little confused because according to uDisc, it looks like FPO played shorter versions of 4, 5, and 6, but on video they sure look like the same tees and pins for both...

Rick had more than one instagram post this weekend bragging about how he made the "right" decision to stay in Sweden, with an emphasis on the weather.

It's a very tough course. One that is designed to challenge the elite players (1020+ rating). Last year, a 68 (+2 to course par) was rated 999. This year, it looks like that score (now +1 to par)...

I seem to recall Cat having trouble here last year as well. Something about the shot-shaping required on the course not really fitting her strengths very well. Could still be the case.

Active memberships who have officially recorded a tournament in 2018, to be exact. The stats page is primarily there to count points. No points, even if active, no reason to be listed on that page.

Why would the group give a violation for asking to have the chains rattled? That's not a violation of any rule (or "logical" extension of any rule in the book). If the group feels that rattling the...

It's the most recent 25% of your rounds but I believe they round up to include all rounds in an event if the 25% cut-off would split an event. So in your question, it would be four rounds counted...

I really don't think par changes how these players approach a hole at all. Crashing the green there results in a 2 if it's clean and a 4 if it's OB. Whether you call those two scores eagle/par or...

Not true. 100% myth.

While it is more likely that lower rated propagators have ratings that lag behind their skill level (as they rapidly improve), that doesn't mean that higher ratings...

There's supposed to be coverage of the final FPO round. But Spin has promised that before (FPO coverage at Aussie Open) and not delivered. Hopefully they follow through.
