That's just flat out wrong. It takes out a majority of the risk for worse players. Sure go for that 250 yard shot over the water into a tight green, you only lose a point instead of that triple staring you in the face. it COMPLETELY changes the game and strategy which is really not staying true to the sport or competitiveness of the athletes.
I love and hate match play. I like to be the one to take the risk and push the issue on a hole but the sting of losing to a higher handicap sucks.
The Ryder Cup is what it is because of match play. Just hasn't worked out for us three times. I would love to see a stroke play championship and a match play championship.
