"Taking a look" is not good enough for me. Players will always do better or worse than expected. By mere coincidence some players will have a string of betters or (worses) that happen to line up with perceptions about how different courses play.

Until we can measure the "woodedness" and other features of courses, and then run tests to prove that the seeming correlation is not just happening by chance, we have no evidence this is true.

Those players avoiding certain courses may just be doing it based on superstition.

Or, there may be something to it. It's a reasonable hypothesis.

So who won, MPO, FPO? (I'm unable to look it up, that's why I'm asking here)

Nevermind about FPO. Just saw that Cat beat Hokom in a playoff. Crap.

Still can't see who won MPO.

Chris Dickerson (x2!)

Chris and Calvin were tied coming into the 18th and Chris got the birdie. Great battle between them over the whole round.

Perhaps we can prove who's best over multiple rounds in some other event.....

Like, every other one.

It was crazy that Cat missed so many short putts,and then basically just blindly started throwing putts at the basket at missing. She lost like 7-8 strokes. The women's division is definitely a roller coaster, between crazy short missed putts and people trying too hard in the woods.

I saw 3 putts missed from like 8ft on Friday.

To be fair, I am pretty sure I saw Kevin Jones miss 2 putts inside of 15 feet during the finals.

There is so much opportunity in the FPO field for a player to step up and dominate. Cat's mental game and putting are awful. Hokom is terrified of throwing a backhand. Paige throws OB constantly and lacks confidence in her forehand.

Kristin Tattar doesn't seem to have any glaring weaknesses like these, I'm very interested to see what she does next year.
