Will have to disagree, there is a fair share of tournaments out there that have great 1 v 1 match play portions (US Am, Mid-Am, etc.). Having just one match play event on the calendar isn’t the end of the world and overall, is a good thing. We don’t need more 72 hole, stroke play tournaments. There is a reason Zurich has been a relative hit and why the Euro Tour continues to shake it up.
I may be in the minority but I think the pool play format has been an improvement. Those 64 man brackets can get real boring, real quick if big names drop on day 1. It’s not perfect though, as other ideas could enhance the event further.
