This came up some years back, at a big amateur tournament, possibly Bowling Green. I'll get the details wrong; I only remember it because I knew the winner.

It was sponsored by a local brewery or...

It's a negligible difference---$1 per person. It won't be noticed in the players pack, either way.

Which brings up the better question; it's not how to fund a B-tier, but why fund a B-tier.

Particularly if you have 70 ams for a tournament. Stick with that success, and be happy.

But the...

Here's one way:

If you have 50 Ams at $50 each, that's $2,500. You give $2,500 worth of payout, valued at retail---that's 100%.

But you only pay $1,800 wholesale costs for that merchandise. ...

I envision an errant drive being more than 30' shorter than a good drive. Unless there's a dogleg and that 30' means missing the landing zone.

On long, open holes, 30' distance, or 50' off the...

You've lost me. How can there be minimal difference between an errant throw and a good one?

And less than 40% more effect than four other holes.

That's less than I would have expected. To my taste, there's nothing wrong with having some critical holes, or holes that have more...

If they can recover from an errant drive with a routine throw, what sort of throw are they left with after a good drive?

Why not just leave it as a "best practice", and let players choose whether to attend events on courses without accurate signs, or run by TDs who don't provide them, if it matters that much? Heck,...

What's the problem if it opens up an entirely different line?

Luckily for me, I can judge distance as far as I can throw. More and more holes exceed that---courses are getting longer, my arm is getting shorter---so it hardly matters. I'm just throwing as far...

Mine was a lighthearted jab, because of the time you've spent elsewhere are par 2, that you just had to stick it in. I agree with you about them.

I also agree with your post here, and...

Some of those---but other types of higher-par holes, too. None where distance is the primary factor, though.

Comparing a poorly-designed par-4s & -5s with well-designed par-3s?

Likewise, a well-designed par-4 will create better scoring separation than a poorly-designed par-3.

We have Par 4s & Par 5s that give players multiple chances to screw up. That attempt at a great recovery shot is sweet if it works, but might mean double-bogey, or worse, if it doesn't.
