At least one of the two courses has amazing views right? Surprised to see the focus almost entirely of close-in shots of the players.

Also, isn't the 2nd week in September about the latest Worlds has ever been held? If this becomes the norm, I think we would see a lot more southern cities bid for them. I mean, DFW in July is impossible but late September isn't so bad.

I think with the new format of only MPO and FPO a lot more cities will be able to handle worlds and you will see some new venues in the years to come. They don't need 4+ good courses anymore.

I don't believe September is going to become the norm at all. It just happens that the venue this year wants to host in conjunction with its annual fall festival (same thing they do with their Green Mountain Championships), so Worlds is in September this year. Next year, they're hosting Pro Masters Worlds at Smuggs and my guess is they'll do that in September and Open Worlds will be earlier in the summer.

In fact, my guess is that they'll probably rotate the Worlds schedule a bit since there are now four events to put on each year (Open, Masters, Am, Junior). Depending on venues, dates for all of them will probably vary from late June to early September.

Pro Masters Worlds 2019 at Smuggs has been announced as happening in June.

Fox run has exceptional scenery but the players are the show, not the course. -

Says who exactly?
I can see these players throw a dozen times a year on youtube and this weekend in person. I want to see more of the courses I will likely never play, like perhaps one single second of the view - which this video did not have.
