So partly an excuse to experiment with the new poll feature, but mostly to add to the discussion. I'm surprised no one seems to be talking about what I think was the biggest decision of the Masters.
On Sunday there was a pretty good head/tail wind. Tgas opted to drop his 32off pass so he could get a 39 headwind. Nate went out at his 32off and then posted a strong 39. With the pressure now on Parrish to match Nate's score, he went out at 32 off, but then opted to skip his 35off pass and go to 38 where he fell around 3 ball.
I was standing out on the platform watching Parrish between passes and without the aid of the big screen I could see him turning his head looking back down course at the water conditions considering his move.
I spoke with a prominent skier afterwards, and he said CP made the right decision. His logic was that if he couldn't run 38 in a tailwind, he wasn't going to run 39, so it really didn't matter. What do you think?
Should Parrish have opted up at the Masters? 36 votes
CP should have run up the line from -32 without opting up.
CP should have started at -35 to get the -39 headwind.
CP should have opted up from -32 to -38 .
