I thought the point of this entire thread was scoring is too low and we need smaller baskets. Now we've reached "every hole should be birdied and hard holes should have par changed to promote lower scoring."

My overall view is that both are issues. It comes down to course design. Course designers and TD's obviously know if a large majority of players are going to land in C1 during play then it's going to be a birdie fest. So the consequence of the ease of putting has created courses or certain holes that have no real fairway. Like I said if the best players in the world are playing the poke and hope game and no one birdies then I can easily say we have a problem. Again the problem is the ease of putting making the long game very difficult to a high degree of luck in some situations. Make the basket smaller. Players make a few less putts and now the long game doesn't have to be so difficult or unfair. Players can land 25 feet and I am still intrigued because no longer is it automatic. They might miss.

On the other hand we have holes that are mostly in the open. To toughen up some of these holes artificial OB and/or raised baskets are being used on a regular basis. I think you could do away with both and simply make the basket smaller. You'd have a similar challenge and not have to deal with the ropes and raised baskets which cause more layups as well.

So I think both situations become better with a properly sized target. Hard holes can become fairer with real fairways. Players might land in C1 a little more. Easy holes get tougher by having a little bit tougher putting. No longer is it automatic to get up and down from 200 feet.

There’s never been a point to this thread. It was mercifully gone until dipsh!t bumped it again.

Everybody comment on a different thread and re-bury this one, please. I'm headed to one underneath this one and making a comment, maybe even that I'm just there to help bury the worst thread in DGCR history.

The basket is fine. Case closed.

While he bumps this thread. The basket is a problem. If not why do they raise baskets? Or make mozzarella sticks and put them 4 feet from the cage? Of course everyone knows putting is too easy. The question is what to do about it?

You know what would be nice? Actual mozzarella sticks by the basket. Get one of those heated setups like they have in grocery stores and gas stations and grab a nice snack as you wait to tee off next hole.

I bet the grease from the cheese sticks makes grip worse and putting gets harder thus raising scores and making a smaller basket irrelevant.

Of course the problem then is no one will make birdies and thats the entire object of the game. Damn
