Gotta say the coverage had been truly great to see. Between the commentary, film quality, double card coverage, and everything else that goes into the production, you guys are killing it out there. Thank you for all your hard work!

PLUS the course looks amazingly beautiful, and the weather has been perfect. That doesn't hurt things any.

Have they posted how tiebreaking will be done for the quarters and semis? I presume it will be sudden death starting on hole 1. I'm thinking there's a good chance for two or even three tying for the last spot(s) since it's only one round.

Good idea to use tour points to break ties.

Based on what Drew Gibson just did on hole 18 (and I don't blame him at all, it's good strategy), I can see where this event didn't need to be sanctioned in the first place so "unsanctioning" it really wasn't that big of a deal.

Imagine if the round were sanctioned and rate-able how that intentional tanking of a throw would have played out...could have warranted a DQ for manipulating one's rating. Instead, it doesn't matter. It's just solid strategy in setting up the match-ups for tomorrow.

So I have to ask what's the big deal playing on McBeth's card?

I thought of the same thing. However, I think a violation like this would be waived because the strategic choice for potential advancement would (or should) trump the ratings consideration. It's also an X-tier type format.

I believe the format for the semi finals is that you have to win your card to advance to the finals. If you're not on McBeth's card, you stand a slightly better chance of doing that, don't you think?

Yes that makes sense, but damn that seems sort of uncool to do.

It seems more like laying up a 20' putt on the last hole of a tournament with a two throw lead. It assures a favorable outcome.

What advantage does a 1000+ rated pro gain by lowering their round rating?
