All those events are early in the season. I think you want the player who is playing the best golf NOW(August), not who played the best in April. This is why I think one event should decide it. If that event is two-dayer, great.
Back to back weekend events at different locations; combined score from both weekends wins.
Sorry Stibs, but as much as I agree with Clue, I must disagree with you about the same amount.
Earning your way into the USDGC as the Iowa rep should be earned over the course of the Iowa Tour - I want to say " that guy was the best of the non-qualified players*(qualified players being the other) I don't care who is the best is April, that's why I would love to see a 2009 temporary qualification process followed by a non-calendar year points race (let everyone get warmed up and start the new season in September) This way guys that need time to get there summer legs would...f*ck it...I think everyone knows what I mean. Due to the need for a decision in Aug. I would hate to see the heart of the Iowa season lost in the process because there's no time to pick a candidate at that time.
It would also give some accolades to guys (besides AO, Tanner, and me in the past IL now) Madrid would be our Daytona 500 - think about it!
