Perhaps, with relatively fewer players like this event had, the answer would have been more staggered starting times.
Probably doesn't help that they send out the Age protected side if the event out first. Though most of those who played seem like good players according to the ratings, if you get one particularly slow group in the morning, it can/will cause backups for hours to come on some holes.

I think this is one of the main reasons they started a ratings floor for the DGPT events, as well as sending the FPO out after the MPO.

Spot on. Parking too is a problem, very limited especially when you need space for all the media/sponsor trucks, trailers, RVs, people pulling 5th wheels too, vendors, and fans/galleries parking as well.

I can see that, but the variety of shots that pros throw off the tee is what I was talking about.

Also the variety of putts they are left with. Not scrambling, but putts from a knee, through a branch, etc.

Dela is awesome IMO. Hopefully if they move permanently to the golf course (or some other nearby venue) they will still have the previous champions skins match still at Dela and/or the GK skins match at Dela. That would be cool.
