I wonder at what point Ricky started checking scores. If he knew he had a decent lead, it would be interesting to know whether he considered playing more conservatively or decided to keep doing what had been working. And, with benefit of hindsight, whether he will make a different decision going forward.

I have played Iron Hill a few times, mostly middle or long tees to long baskets. At my (limited) distance, the fairways are fair but unforgiving. But even though I love woods golf, the relentless need to hit lines and scramble effectively at Iron Hill can wear you down.

Which, IMO, makes it an excellent test for the top pros. DDGC is one of the events I most look forward to watching every year.
Four career starts at the DDGC - 1 win followed by 3 consecutive 2nd place finishes. Lost by 4, lost by 1, lost in a playoff. I think he's probably comfortable he'll run into some wins over the years doing what he's doing.

Didn't Eagle McMahon skip a tournament this year because he didn't like the course?

Paige Pierce seems to prefer more open courses where she can throw for distance and overpower the competition that way. Perhaps she thought Iron Hill didn't suit her game, and so she skipped it.

I believe Eagle skipped Ledgestone for a few years because of his dislike of Eureka. I think he got over it.

I really don't think Paige skipped playing because she doesn't like the course. As far as I can tell, she'd never played it before. Can't imagine that she'd decide, sight unseen, not to play the event because of the course. And if she did, it was probably more related to not having enough time (or perhaps energy after Worlds) to practice it prior to the event than it not "suiting her game".

Doesn't sound like he's over it...
