(1) I just don't see many amateur players needing 8000 yards to challenge them, and (2) I don't think the tour will host a tournament in Myrtle Beach anytime soon.
Just seems to be pointless to do that, all things considered. It's not like most tourists who go down there to play are hitting tee balls 325 yards and hitting irons into 200+ yard par3's.
It's basically a publicity thing. And I don't anticipate it working in their favor.
