victorb - Don't pdga rules state there must be an hour break between rounds? If so, most likely going to see some serious protests because after the first round I heard that there was only a 25 minute break allowed.

Please post where you see this rule in the Competition Manual.

Never said I read it straight out of there. I haven't been on the course in almost 2 months, let alone opened up my comp manual.

Regardless of if it is in there or not, there should be a common courtesy of at least 45 minutes between rounds for players to have a break.

Expressing your opinion on common courtesy and stating what you believe to be pdga rules are two different things. Just sayin'

And like Leopard said, many matches aren't full rounds.

yeah Match play rounds go until someone wins. it could be 10 holes to 18+. The Park Crown course at TP is insanely long and the ropes/ob/wind/hills probably are making guys play a lot slower. I could see an 18 hole match out there going an easy 4-5 hours(2 matches per card). It gets dark about 7pm now, so that doesn't leave a lot of time for a lunch break. You honestly walk more to the next hole as you do the actual hole length on a few. They took the best layout that 2 long courses had to offer. You cover every corner of the property. I think someone was quoted on Eric McCabes facebook as saying "I have never player 9 holes and felt like I played an entire round".

Oh an go check out music video about E-Mac on his facebook
