At no point has this even been hinted at. All he said was that Rock Hill is close to Charlotte.

And to say Paul will "do this easiest on the Rock Hill course" is a bit silly. As dominate as he has been the last 8 seasons, he has "only" won USDGC twice.

I mentioned the USDGC in reply to the post that Charlotte "needs one big event", in demonstration of what the efforts the Charlotte area already makes. They probably host more big events than anywhere else---owing to the USDGC being planted (just outside) there. Plus 2 more majors in 7 years---not just any majors, but world championships---and 2 A-tiers every year. That's a pretty good load for any club or location. I'm not surprised they're not on the NT or DGPT tours.

Yes, you said this last time. Nobody is arguing otherwise. Most fans follow the MPO tour. Charlotte is a mecca and it has not been a "tour stop" every year. That's all. Next time I mention this I will make sure to preface it with how awesome the Charlotte club is and how many events they run.

The new Hornet's Nest Gold layout is pretty much set. Its just smething thrown together to help with flow for right now.

Follow the signs also posted.

Check out the map on hole 1 or here:

New tee on 18 @495ft
New tee (will be called gold 13) left of gap on original 14.

If we get the event in 2020 then we are looking at a Nest gold about 1000 ft longer and 4-5 strokes higher.

Looks great! You guys are moving fast, thanks for sharing!

Kind of surprised you're not using the long tee on #4, but looks like the different basket for #3 might be in the way.
Disappointed #14 won't be in its normal layout, that would be fun to watch the Pros attack.
Excited to see a new Guantlet on #15.

Couple of questions:
Will #16 still have the two gaps to choose from?
Anything added to #18 besides distance? It looks like a pretty wide open finishing hole.

IMO, original long 4 is a tweener hole for the top pros. They'd all get their drives out to 100', have an easy upshot, and get a bunch of 3s. Short tee is a better par 3 than the long is a par 4.
