Somewhat, yes, although I think there will still be plenty of players who miss even the larger mark by enough to call it.

Pretty close, but not the same.

Par doesn't care how many high scores the players get, but SSA does.

A round played in unusually bad weather would not have a different par, but it would...

They didn't shred the course, they shredded par. SSA was about 55, which isn't that small compared to a lot of other courses that host MPO competitions. It's just not a par 64 course for MPO.

Well...

We've learned a lot about par since that course was put in. As you've said, pars can be checked and adjusted once we have actual scores. I'd say 58 would be modern Blue par.

No, you don't re-throw for a marking violation. It's not the same as a stance violation. If you want to discuss further take it to the Rules forum.
