Days of full-page agate no more

Want to make any readers aware of a staff decision made this afternoon: We will no longer be running full scores for golf events due to space restrictions. Attached is an example of just how tight it can get running scores from three tours — on the third day of the event !
We understand the move may not sit well with some readers, however, this has been a long time coming. NFL box scores were a web-only deal last fall and we have excluded NBA and NHL boxes this winter.
The reason we keep the boxes from high school games is we are pretty much the only place to get those. With pro and college sports, there are several other avenues to satisfy the number crunchers.
Stay tuned for more cuts due to spacing issues.
