Yes, the Memorial has gone back to two courses.

Another reason why I won't go to this event

Leaving the GCC, renamed Las Vegas Club Challenge, as the only one with more than two. Unless they change the *TBA course to one of the ones used in earlier rounds.

Can you elaborate a bit more on this? I'm not trying to be accosting, genuinely curious.

I thought most touring pros appreciated less courses to practice at these events. Any specific reasons?

Its just geared towards the guys who have a cannon, no finesse needed. To me its not fun golf to watch or play.

There are always exceptions but it just seems like its not geared towards that style of player.

Worth noting that Cam's win in 2016 did not come from playing three rounds at Emporia Country Club. He got to play Peter Pan and Jones East before edging out McBeth by a stroke at ECC.

I have no interest in playing on ball golf courses anymore. They are just too boring for my taste
