True, good point. Allowed in all A/B/C tiers, per the Competition Manual section 2.04.A. (Not in Majors as you said, also not expressly allowed in NTs nor, interestingly, X-tiers.)

No, he can't. At least not if the rec division is sanctioned. He can't be reclassified down to Am status because he's accepted cash within the past year.

Well, that way MPO wouldn't become a ratings-protected division. So it's a step in the right direction.

How about, "You can play MPO if you beat a 1027 rated player at a B-tier or above in the...

I agree that there's little risk on the tee shot of 3, but I kind of like that aspect. On a course with so many punishing OBs and mandos and hazards, it's refreshing to have a wide open bomber with a...

I'll be staying and training in the Jersey Village area, so probably targeting some of the shorter nearby courses.

Not sure I'd say it's the default. Most designers are, fortunately, trying to create balanced courses that don't heavily favor one type of shot.

But for courses that do lack balance, RHBH-friendly...
