Thanks. I guess I was way off on 18 holes. I was thinking 7k yards is 21k feet so ~4 miles, and of course they do more walking than that between holes, around the green, etc.Since this never actually got answered, an 18 hole round is ~6-8 miles. These guys did at least 12 miles of brutal hills today. That place is exhausting to walk.
When was the last time you went on a 12 mile hike? How about 6-8 miles 5 days in a row? It's a lot, no matter your age. It's not climbing Everest or anything, but it's pretty exhausting. After a few days at Bandon I always feel like I could sleep for 2 days straight. Some of that is a 4 day hangover, but a lot of it is just walking 18+ every day for multiple days in a row.I mean, I have to imagine that was as much the reason for Tiger pulling out as how it would affect his golf game. But is it really that bad for healthy 29 year old men?

I've volunteered at about 2 dozen professional tournaments as a walking scorer. They NEVER sit down unless it's in the portapotty, or in the scorer's trailer.And the players also don't really seem to sit down very much.
They all looked pretty beaten up by the 72nd.
Have to think that Hovland's struggles toward the end were at least a little impacted by the pairingFinal round time was just under 5 hours for Rahm and Koepka (due to Cantlay). Apparently Hovland was walking ahead of Cantlay at times and played out on 13 while Cantlay was still walking down the fairway short of the creek. Augusta really needed to step and do something.
That's what made me think I forgot. Normally I'd see the daily breakdown of how many tickets were requested and awarded for each of the days but there's nothing there for me this year. I also couldn't find my "application received" email that I would have received registering.Damn -- maybe that's the same for me. But that is one email I always open immediately. I didn't see anything specific in my account on the ticketing website. Oh well.
Yep - exact same for me. Though I did find my email confirmation from 2013.That's what made me think I forgot.
