I think a lot of people were tired after 3 rounds and would have opted out if it just meant that they didn't get plastic.
I also know a lot of people wanted to watch the PRO final 9, it was odd playing AM and NOT getting to watch the big guns duel it out at the end.
This usually seems to be the time where everyone winds down and enjoys watching some good golf and the end of a long tourney...
If we had chosen to skip the FINAL 9, would it have counted as a DNF?
Or could we have just taken our place out of the money?
Lots of questions arise of the situation... I still had a blast!
One of the funnest tourneys I have been to, can't wait for the next!
Thsi happend several years ago at an LCO AM player was better then last cash pased on 9 and took last cash.
I was looking at the flyer and it says
Format all players
Sat Two rounds w lunch break assuming 18 hole/round min
Sun 1 round with safari final 9
Final 9 Open cash +1
Final 9 Adv scrip +1
Seems pretty straight forward to me 9 was included.
Now the passing on the nine is intersting. It would depend on how the paperwork was sbmitted as a 54 hole event or a 54 hole event + a final 9. If you did pass on the nine you should not DNF just sacrifice your payout
