I'm in 100% agreement, but again, the elite golfers and the ones with the huge distance advantage want to be able to throw as far as they can and use that advantage off as many tees as possible, and they want to birdie every single hole,
if possible. The idea of just playing for a three is often a completely foreign one to them, and is often portrayed by them seemingly as a crime against humanity and the very nature of golf and our sport.
