That's funny because I actually had a little to do with that design. I pushed for shorter Par 3s and better, sometimes longer, Par 4s. Unfortunately they took almost every Par 4 idea I had and NONE of my Par 3 ideas. So you got Long and Longer.

I like the course, but I didn't like the OB in some places.  With the wind it was dang near impossible on some shots to keep it in bounds.

Basically. They told me that short Par 3s were too easy for the top 6 guys so they lengthened them. No one cares about  the other 430 people.

So you didn't like the Wind.

I actually liked Muni.  Had my best round out there, even on Sunday, the windiest.

So you didn't like the Wind.

Loved it, just didn't like it with OB in play on every hole.

It shouldn't be nearly as windy at worlds in July as it was last April. July and August typically have much calmer winds in Kansas than April.

I second that Tom.  You'll be wanting some wind in July, even though it'll feel like a furnace...lol  ::)

I'm no meteorologist, but don't Spring / Fall winds have more umph than summer winds due to the temperature and the weight of the air.  Or am I just full of it?

Well, I learned something today.  I had renewed my membership to the Professional side, and even though I haven't accepted any cash yet, my invite got yanked to Am Worlds.  I had to call them up and talk to the Tour Director, to get it to where he/they understood that.  I'm back on the invite list, but unknowingly figured they would see that I hadn't accepted any yet.  Wasn't planning on accepting any until after Am Worlds, (insert your joke here...lol... :P), but he said he didn't look at it that way.  If he sees Professional, it's an automatic yank.  FYI, for those that try that approach.  8)
