I already get motion sick watching the coverage, if I added that much alcohol to the mix, I would be blowing chunks after Hole 3.

Warning: Do not play this game while watching the FPO or MPO Round 1 live coverage from Memorial. You would be drunker than a frat boy at initiation and might possibly have alcohol poisoning by the end of the round.

From the grow the sport angle. The decision to produce in house, and the limiting content to that which requires skipping through a long form video is shooting so many feet because it is a distinct step back in the capability to market the sport, and the players, and the related products being used. I certainly hope the manufacturers who are sponsoring DGPT this season are taking note of this failed experiment in circling the wagons.
The lack of coverage saturation of the cards that comes from having the additional filming and edited content from CCDG, and Jomez, and Gatekeeper, and so on that can turn around edited content in 24 - 48 hours. I really feel for the number of players who are not getting the exposure of their being filmed at the DGPT events. The investment of time each one has made, and the lack of exposure they have received must put a crimp in the sales of CFR discs.

This is a big key. DGPT's successes thus far have been directly related to the players buying into the idea that Steve is on their side and doing this for them. There is unquestionably some goodwill built up there. How far does that goodwill extend?

Methinks that's a soft par 4.

Too bad the inflated pars on holes #2, #7, #9, #12, #16, and #18 are a smear on the course's reputation.

Of course, changing pars on those holes was probably too difficult. That would have been almost as hard as changing hole numbers.

How do you reconcile this with the abnormal lack of wind and opposite direction wind, when comparing those to last year's stats?

Right now, I don't. I stick to compering holes to each other during the same rounds.

Probably for a while since he's the only organization that has the player's back in this way: https://www.dgpt.com/news/4000-ways-...ajestic-payout

Hard to say- that definitely helped get them off on the right foot but people tend to operate to a large extent based on "what have you done for me lately".

You could play "drink every time the announcers are quiet for 2 seconds in a row". You would be completely sober with your drink untouched at the end of the round.
