Default Carolina Clash smaller this year?

Just registered for Carolina Clash in Charlotte, NC. One of my favorite tournies. Seems that it went from 4 rounds to only 3. Also looks like less courses are being used. This was a huge B Teir last year. Im not complaing as my wife and I are going anyway. Was curious if anyone has any insight on the changes.

Well, it was probably bigger as a Worlds warm-up event. Since World's isn't in Charlotte this year, they're probably thinking they don't need to accomodate as many players or that it will be as big of a draw. Just speculation though...

That makes sense. Never thought about that.

I see the 3 round thing becoming a growing trend. It's actually a pretty cool deal. The main body of the tournament is over around noon and you get home much earlier. For folks like you who are driving all the way from Tennessee you can start on that long drive back around 1 instead of 5. Unless you play well and make the final 9.

I would much rather play three-round tournaments. A four-round, out-of-town tourney is hard to do when you don't get home until late Sunday night.

i also think the three rounders are a good format. does make it much easier for the folks who travel to play.

and i will definitely be playing the clash this year.
