Par isn't the problem. The course is the problem for FPO. The top women are 970 rated. They're better served playing Blue level courses, not Gold. The Beast is a true Gold level course.

I don't think changing the pars does much to affect anything. Some of the holes are simply ill-suited for their skill level regardless of the par. Paige even makes that point (indirectly) in the commentary when she suggests that with a couple holes, where the women might want to lay-up is as fraught with as much or more danger than just going for it. So they go for it...and miss.

Some shorter tees, tees that enable more of the women than just Paige and Henna and maybe Evelina to be able to access the designed landing zones, would do wonders for the competitiveness and play-ability of the course for FPO.

Looks like Paige played ”par golf” today but had a rough couple of holes in the end....but she still played 6 throws better than the second best.
Paige is probably the only FPO player that think it’s fun to play this course

Difficult conditions today? Not that good scores at the top, except for Eagle....but a lot of -6 scores far down the leaderboard...nice day for Oakley

The weather seems to be as good as yesterday, if anything then even hotter outside.
The wind is also minimal.

IDK why but I'm watching the coverage and just get a "meh" feeling. The course is "meh," the usual suspects are "meh," just "meh" all around.

Perkins is "okay" but he just seems to be "low energy". Like he's trying to speak in hushed tones as if this is a golf ball golf tournament. He needs to live up to his name and perk up some.

Paige P's commentary has been very good, IMHO. Good explanations of what is going on, disc choices, etc.
