One tour player agreeing with you out of hundreds doesnt really make for strong evidence.
Interesting how you felt the need to start an additional forum post/poll just to prove your point, even though the majority of the people so far 9 out of 16 votes have said they either dont want to see it, or dont care. Keep in mind that is on a forum for dedicated golfers. If more than half of dedicated golfers in a forum wouldnt want to see it, surely the general public would have very little interest in it, which is the reason that tournaments even exist, because there is enough public interest for the course/PGA to make money on each event.
As @jsgolfer says, this topic has been talked about extensively for a long time. As a moderator, I'd merge this over to the thread linked above, but it would look strange to have this basic question inserted after all of the discussion.
Locking this topic. For discussion, go to the link in the post directly above this one.
Can't tell you how many times I've tried to explain this to my golfing friends: there's no shame in playing a provisional.
Just hit it: it takes virtually no time, best case it's a free practice swing, worst case you have to play it but at least you didn't have to walk back to the tee and hold up play for everyone else.
