I personally love the idea of the A-Tier playing the same courses as the Pros. We're not playing the original version of Blue valley, so its really not THAT big of a deal to play 2 courses a day. If you don't think you can handle the 5-course option there's always intermediate for you
As for the art, sure its being a little recycled, but what else do you recommend be put on there? I think its a pretty sweet representation of Kansas City. Only thing better could be Oldenburg's shuttlecock statues
If we want something new and unique someone has to take the time and effort to DO IT. That's what it really all comes down to.
Also, how is this event the same year over year? Other than format, or courses chosen what would you like to see be 'different'
Are you playing in the KCWO?
What about the XXX games, isn't that a neat and new idea we're integrating with the Wide Open?
Its hard to say something Stinks when you aren't out there making it smell better. (Or maybe you are!!?)
