SPART for Standard Par Thickness. Bigger SPART would mean scores are more tightly packed around your calculated par value if I understand what you're getting at?

I agree that going for the center of the green in general is statistically better than going at the pin or laying up under calm weather conditions or at least ones you've practiced. However, in the...

Remember that Nikko was the one who made the call on Ricky's foot fault by releasing too far back from his marker at the Memorial (which wasn't seconded).

Although small sample size, those lay-ups still produced an average score 4 or less. If you miss the green from the tee half the time, your best scores will likely average 4 with the chance for much...

Not sure anyone should get the equivalent of a two shot penalty for such a minor error. In addition, you take away the fun of going for it with too much of a penalty for landing on the island. Why...

I think the basket can be located in OB. However, calling the island a Hazard would also be legal. I'm thinking the best idea would be to make the island a Relief Area where a player landing on it...

That's good. Must be a new addition. However, having the default DZ near the mando would even be better and should reduce the need for waivers.

Throw & Distance Penalties Not Recorded
