bracket play is now blind... no idea which course we are playing until we start playing it
You are incorrect... you CAN see what courses are to be played within brackets even WITHOUT signing up.
Once you are on the Bracket Tournament page, select a bracket that you are interested or want to see what courses are to be played. Right above the Sign Up tab you should see a tab that says "View Bracket." Once you click View Bracket, then click Courses and it will list the courses that are to be played.
Not only that, you can also see if your opponent has played yet and what they scored, from the "my tournaments" tab and looking at a bracket's leaderboard. Quite handy information, that allows one to choose, how expensive ball they need to win. Or saving hits on your ball, if you know you can't make that score 6 holes before the end...
Some people are even blinder than the brackets ;-)
