Paul doesn't have what it takes to win worlds ever again.

(ONLY saying this in hopes that he sees it and then beats the field by 15 strokes... which wouldn't surprise me)

Really on that first sentence??? FTFY. Hard for me to see 5 rounds of 1059 golf (Barsby), or 5 rounds of 980 golf (Bjerkaas) at Smuggler's Notch as a "fluke". Paige B would have shot her SECOND 1000-rated round if she doesn't get all giddy on #18 the final day and throws her second shot OB marching to the win.

One thing that could be fairer with the current Pro Worlds format experiment is to play 9 holes on each course in the semi final round. Consider that the two courses at Smuggler's were quite different and this will be the case at Peoria. Presuming some players play better on one type of course than the other, doesn't it make sense to keep things balanced 50/50 in the semi round after they've played the two different courses twice to get there?

You’re not wrong, but playing nine holes, driving 14 miles, then playing another nine seems like a pain in the butt for everyone involved - spectators, volunteers, players, everyone.
Hopefully they’ll play the tighter fairways in Eureka and skip the less dramatic hyzer holes.
