Certainly there's potential for tanking that 2nd round, but I think it's such a negligible problem I wouldn't worry about it.
I thought this would probably be the way to do it. But I didn't know if it was fair or not. Since 1/2 the players would play the course in the morning and the other 1/2 would play it in the afternoon, so the conditions would be different for the two groups.
The other concern I had about doing this, it would be after the tournament is complete, even though we are using course A as the score to flight them, we would basically be determining who would be the champ of one flight and the bottom of the other flight and not get anything. And after 1 round (the round we flight from) there are usually a lot of ties right at the breaks of the flights, this year we were doing a CTP throwoff to determine what flights they get split into so our flights would have exactly the same number of people if at all possible. If we did that in this situation it would be determining the champ of one flight and getting paid something, to the others not getting anything at the bottom of the other Flight. But we could just forget about doing that. But then how do you determine what flight you put those players in that are tied, what flight do you make larger than the others. Say there are 5 players tied between Open and Advanced, do you make Open the large Flight or Advanced the Large flight?
