...well, for today anyway.
If the rumored move to a Thursday-Sunday setup happens in 2008, this would significantly alter the Captain's strategy on day 1.
As a trusted observer pointed out to me today, the pressure on the Captain's to make their afternoon foursome's selections creates one of the few moments where the Captain's have to make big decisions under the gun.
A move splitting the opening four-ball and foursomes play would eliminate one more bit of strategy and pressure.
Big deal or not?
