Agree. I see D/C/P as a "top of the funnel" kind of activity to draw in as many kids as possible to become exposed to the game. The more kids who get that exposure, the more will go one to the next level. I also see it as a venue for kids whose parents are not golfers to introduce them to the game in a non-threatening way.

As a competitive event? It's stupid; though I feel like the Masters hook is a good way to draw in "good" golfers that give it some credibility.

This is where we agree.  The longevity and health of the game needs to be driven in another way than 9 shots for most of the kids once a year.  Use the local DCP initiative to funnel the kids into the local organizations that teach them how to DCP.  Let those local organizations help drive and promote the health of the game.  The stats on how many people actually get instruction from a Professional is crazy low.  This could be an introductory to these kids.  Win win for the kids and win win for the PGA Instructors down the road because they get more students.

Jordan Spieth took the initiative at DCP events in North Texas. Not many people know this but anyone who competes in DCP event and not a member of NTPGA junior league his foundation will pay for the first tournament and Yearly membership the first year. North Texas is probably the most active junior area with kids.

I know this because my youngest got this the first time she did DCP. It covered he yearly membership and first tournament fee.  Not sure if others do this but it is a good reason to like Jordan Speith.

Did Jordan Spieth get married to Steven Spielberg?  I'm so out of the loop.

Dcp is cool and good for one reason. The prize at the end of playing at August. Does it take luck up sure does. We are lucky enough to have locals in subs in our city so as long as the prize is the masters people will go
