I can't drive for $hit but my upshot and putting game are very solid. I tend to hang with a lot of players well. #1 for sure!

With option 1, one could travel every week to the biggest ace pots in the country and be guaranteed some cash, one could.
Worth it.....probably not.

Go with option 1 and run down every Ace Pool you can find. "Ace Pool Pro Tour, Taking all your money" would be my tag line.

Here’s the thing, if you can’t drive over 200 ft then a 300ft hole you will par nearly every time. If you can drive max 600ft then at least you have a chance to get it close to make the closed eye putt a drop in giving you a higher chance off birdie. Option 2

The Ace every round option would certainly provide some entertaining You Tube moments on championship caliber course like Idlewild, WR Jackson, etc.

I already have 11 aces in 30 years and just went 12 years without one before finally acing again. Never got above Am-1 mediocrity, briefly peaked at my zenith at a 951 rating over 15 years ago. CRAVE getting better now. Aces are oftentimes lucky mistakes. One of mine was supposed to be a skip shot but I released it head-high by mistake and got lucky through trees. Never shooting over par? And I'm one of these old school guys who considers everything Par 3 so long as I can reach the edge of circle 1 or better with my second drive...Yeah, never shooting over par would mean I could finally be a pro so I'd take that in a heartbeat.

For the second question, I'm already kind of in that boat, only it's 300' instead of 200'. I'm sick to death of very limited birdie opportunities despite being a pretty good putter. Par after par after par after par isn't as glamorous as it might seem. If I could drive up to 600', and I assume this is with accuracy, then my blindfolded putts would (a) at least have a chance to go in and (b) would way more often be for deuces instead of pars. The net difference in score would probably favor the latter scenario.

Back when I played a lot of Am-1 the vast majority of my competition out-drove me big time but couldn't putt as well. The best I ever did in an Am-1 tournament is finish 10th out of about 50. They're putting for birdies and if they're 20 percent worse at 30-footers, that means they're hitting one fewer putt out of five than I am from circle's edge. I'm maxing out at 10th place in this scenario and have always wished I did better.

You would make a ton of money with option 1. Way more than you would with option 2.

Just saying.

Yes. But I don't play "super easy rec courses" so nothing lost. Now, when the Par 1 holes start being built, my playing one of them might tear the fabric of the space-time continuum.
