Well duh. But also match play events almost never have 128 or 156 players.
The point is that for a better player, they’re easier to win. It’s head to head. You must beat only one person. And each time you do your odds increase exponentially. 🙂
Me too. It happened to us last week at league night of all things. We were on the green when it happened so we timed it, ran in hit our putt and ran away. My guess is it was some kind of mistake, because the sprinklers didn't run long and it was only on that hole. Usually, if I have to do the run in, hit, run away thing it's because I'm playing an early AM round.
My experience is normally there's at least some warning too. You hear the thing kind of purging the air or what not and you know it's about to go off. Seems like getting blasted mid-swing would be unlikely. ... It might be possible though.
