They're perfectly good courses, but better suited for the 940-1000 rated range (which the top FPO players fit into perfectly). So watching the FPO play gives you a better idea of how the course was designed to be played. They're throwing a full complement of shots where the MPOs tend to stick to the hyzer bombs or discing down to mids when most mere mortals would still need a full driver.

Count me disappointed that there isn't an MPM round on the docket for the week. Still fun to see guys like Climo, Schultz, etc play. Oh well, it's going to be fun to watch regardless.
Fair point and I agree. For an event as prestigious as Pro Worlds, they really need to courses tailored to a specific skill-set. This is why I think splitting up Pro Worlds is a good idea.
