I love the idea of two rounds at Lakewood on Saturday, and a round plus finals at Seatac, or two more at Seatac with no finals.
I love trying to beat a course, whacking away at it multiple times, but when I travel I prefer to experience the variety different regions have to offer.
Even changing tees or pin positions during a tournament, to me, creates interest and new challenges.
From a touring pros viewpoint, I can see the disadvantage to playing multiple courses, trying to find time to practice each one, but that's half the fun. Extra trips to the region to play the courses.
Another problem, or advantage, to running multiple courses is having cooperation and help. With help, both courses can run simultaneously and the event can hold twice as many players. The problem is finding the help and cooperation. It can be twice the undertaking.
Ho Hum, or Multiple Courses, either way, I'm coming over for both.
