No Inappropriate Inflatables, but a Successful Pro Am Nonetheless
Sometimes you have the opportunity to witness greatness. Usually it’s through the TV. Occasionally it’s in the crowd. But every once in a while, you have the opportunity to stand right next to it, watch it hit a draw on 4, a 261 yd par 4, see the ball move around the trees to the left and land softly on the green WHILE THE WOMEN’S LEAGUE IN FRONT OF YOU IS STILL TRYING TO CHIP ONTO THE GREEN (Which was not visible at the time). And then, you see that tee shot followed up by a 40+ putt that drops.
So yeah, McCann eagled hole 4.
In summary, the Pro Am went as we thought. McCann played rather well, Burke stepped it up quite a bit and Weston snuck icy cool beverages into his cart. Following the event was a live concert with Esteban at Jimmy V’s in Grandview, a performance which all enjoyed.
New Scoring System
At the request of the masses, the scoring method has been revamped. We have adopted Cumulative Points, which is as it sounds, in addition to adding Average Round into the calculation where it was previously just a tiebreaker. The new scoring for the WsPGC Tour is calculated by normalizing the scores of Cumulative Points, Average Round and Average Points then taking the average score of the three. Slightly higher emphasis is placed on Cumulative Points (.45) to reward consistent superior play than Average Points (.35) and Average Round (.20).
The same method is used for the Rank Amateur Tour, although the weights have been shifted differently to account for those that cannot attend most events. Average Points (.50) receives slightly higher weight than Cumulative Points (.40), and Average Round (.10) receives small consideration.
The WsPGC Open at Granville
Our next event is this Saturday morning at Granville Golf Course, rated by Golf Digest in 2009 on their best places to play list. Some of the Pros are pretty excited for it, and there are post round festivities to be held as well. If your schedule permits, reserve a spot by emailing our Purveyor of the Sand Trap.
