Thanks. It was a blast. I have a lot of great things to say about the tournament, and a few funny stories. The course was great. The entire venue is awesome, and it's regular setup looks pretty good too.
I don't want to make excuses because conditioning is always an issue with me, but after my Saturday morning round I almost couldn't walk because my hamstrings hurt so badly. The sandy soil is totally different to walk on and if I go back I'll definitely have to do something to get acclimated.
But the real story is the format. I love it! In fact I'm thinking about making it the format for the state championship this year, but I'm gonna talk to Adam about it first. He did a great job in Iowa City this year. We talked about moving it around, but I don't want to do anything without his blessing (as far as the state championship aspect goes).
I wish you guys could see more of what was going on in the B and C brackets because there was some real drama and some great matches. I think there will be huge improvements next year, and with no USDGC this may be the premier tournament outside of Worlds.
