Yeah, I'm wondering if the angles shown on the chronic field layout's pictures are somewhat deceiving. It seems as if they put bunkers in off places, which would regularly force game play otherwise.
Regarding certain fields, I'm honestly wondering why they would choose such untraditional (and in my opinion poorly configured) designs for of all events, the Commander’s Cup. Their aesthetic quality even seems to suck (that plays no factor in game play, but regardless it still blows.) That's just my opinion, however.
