Personally I love it when the Tour mixes things up. The Stableford (not sure if they still do that), Match play, and now this! It's amazing how much the participation skyrocketed when they made it a team event and let players pick their partners. I also love seeing the Pros show a little emotion. I thought it was great for TV and great for the Tour. Hopefully they'll keep getting creative.
But enough about my thoughts- Did you like it as well, or would you rather see stoke play all day?
