    Like DK I don’t want to hear complaints about heat either as You would not believe some of the temperatures experienced in junior golf championships from Rancho Mirage to Vegas.

    Last year The pga of America held a jr league regional around this time outside Vegas. It was pretty hot especially for a pga pro to tell me I cannot talk to my daughters on the cart path between holes while waiting a long time in the hot heat. Meanwhile he spends the entire time helping 3 older boys grinding against my 2 little girls.

    Fcg world championship are in mid July with wise shotgun starts at 7 am carts and parent caddies.

    The lpga was smart to allow carts this week.

    With no fans, the Lpga tour could/should shotgun start this week. Sure shotgun starts have never been done At the highest levels of golf but unlike silly Handicap strokes,
    It doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be done.
    They already split tees. Why not split it 18 ways?
    It is arguable that everyone teeing off at the exact same time on different holes is the fairest way to compete because everyone (in contention) gets the same temperatures.
    Shotgun starts are also a way to avoid too much downtime in the tv coverage when there are just a few players left on course.
    This was a great week to try that. Imo
