Well run tournament, Kurt. I appreciated the shorter lunch break. In spite of being in the masters division, I don't need lunch and a nap - just enough time for lunch is fine. Also, I like what has happened at the last couple tournaments I have attended when an ace hasn't been hit. Instead of rewarding just one person during the ace throw-off, the two or three closest are rewarded. IMHO, if you don't hit an ace during the actual tournament rounds, you shouldn't be rewarded with the entire amount just because you laid an approach shot next to the pole during the throw-off.
One last thing - I thought the distance (although short) was great for the ace throw-off. I have participated in too many throw-offs where I thought one-fourth of those throwing had almost no chance of putting something close. I felt like everybody had an opportunity to win part of the ace fund during the Newton throw-off - fun!
