KC Wide Open Pin Settings
« on: May 08, 2012, 01:37:59 PM »
I am planning on getting some practice in at Young Friday and may not make it out there again before the Open.  Have the pin positions been chose for the Open and if so can someone post them here?  I would guess something similar to the Eastern Front last year, but maybe somebody can enlighten me.  Thanks!

Too many longs? I understand that the course is technical, but the holes are hardly long. Just like any other tournament on a challenging course. Play safe for par and take the deuce if it's given to you. IMO, courses should ALWAYS be set tougher in a tourney atmosphere.

It's funny that you say too long, because I thought that the layout chosen was a little under challenging for an NT event.

don't get me wrong, i feel that the layout is challenging, but for the best players in the world?

though, to be fair, it seems like maybe the reason for some of the shorter pins was for safety.  I can see where playing 16 long at the top of the hill could be dangerous to people on the walking path.  Same for 17 right and 13 short, shots will be flying potentially into other fairways if the alternate placements were used.
