Driving was excellent, gained .87 strokes off the tee.
Had multiple doubles but still managed to score a 79. 67% GIR helped with that.
Greens were super slow and length of the grass on the greens was ridiculously long. Took me a long time to get used to that.
Had my first eagle of the year on hole #15, Driver 280ish, 3 wood 230 ish pin high about 30 feet left of flag, sunk the left to right breaking putt for the eagle.
Competition is fun! Golf is a game, games are competitive in nature. It's not necessary to play for a bunch of money or anything like that, but I think you may have trouble finding too many people that don't want to play for anything. I literally cannot remember the last round I played where something wasn't on the line.
Top 6 in season long points would determine who gets into the final day playoff so season long results still matter....but the past gets thrown out on the final day (same as in any other sports' playoff final) and it's winner take all. Would make for way better TV IMO.
