Default Memorial changes coming

Watching the video of the Shelley Sharpe tournament (https://www.youtube.com/zwzwHLpd3pU) made for a preview of the changes coming to the Vista Del Camino XL course for this year's Memorial Championships. This is what I noticed, so please feel free to correct me if I am wrong ... and bring you comments!

1 new trpl mando
3 elevated
6 elevated
7 additional mando on left close to basket

11 additional mando toward basket on left
12 slightly longer tee pad, elevated half island
14 new mando off tee restricting RHBH hyzer
16 slightly elevated basket on side hill
18 Josh Anton with 3rd straight putt with his bag on his shoulder.


Ahhh, so hole #18 was not really a change; just something they talked about and I noticed.

All these early season golf course tourneys are dumb. At least they get most of that junk out of the way early.

It would be awesome to see a big Field play throw down the mountain.

I wonder what the cell service there is like, lol. They already got a decent field growing this year.

Calvin
Dickerson
JohnE
MJ
Brinster

Hannah is signed up so maybe Paul plays if he's out of the boot?


Too bad Simon isn't going this year. I was hoping he would make that putt for eagle this time


The problem this year is, its sandwiched between Waco and Texas States. So there probably won't be too many making the trek to Florida with 2 Texas event in 3 week span.

If he plays, Brodie won't be DFL, but close to it.

Actually, cell service might be fine at TDTM. The Canyon's more secluded, than remote.

But, yeah, routing with the other events would be an issue. The tour moves west-to-east.

I understand the sentiment, but the Memorial is not played on a golf course at all. It's two public park courses.

It is incorrect to suggest that golf course tourneys are "out of the way early". I think what you really are saying is that the tourneys on wide open courses are over early, which might be true. On the Elite Series (NT/DGPT) and Major schedule, the first ball golf course that will be played isn't until April at GBO (1 of 2 courses to be used). That's followed by Masters Cup (1 round), San Francisco Open (1 course), Worlds (1 of 2 courses), and Ledgestone (FPO only) over the course of the summer. Rough count is 5 ball golf courses out of 31 total courses expected to be used for NT, DGPT, and MPO/FPO Majors. That doesn't strike me as too much at all.
