Of course, the problem boils down to trying to accommodate Tiger Woods and the Sunday morning hacker on the same course. That's why golf has white, yellow and red tees.
Few other sports have world champions competing with people happy to throw rocks at the same targets.
I consider myself very much in the latter group
and to have a "gimmie" lane after a lane of standers, a lane of kneelers and 2 lanes of over 100 yards when I can comfortably have 6 blobs is a godsend.
Much to the chagrin of some people's beliefs, the point of FT is to enjoy it, not feel violated by it.
If that means the big boys have the odd lane of "gimmies", well feck em.
