    Mandos in tournaments

    Here's a hypothetical question....

    Say a course has a mando on a particular hole. It's not marked, but use of the mando is "common knowledge" among those who frequent the course. During a PDGA tournament, the TD does NOT make mention of this mando on a particular hole. Is the mando in play?

    Same scenario, but this time the mando is actually marked. Does that make a difference? If the TD does not mention it, is it ever in play?

    The same question could be asked for OB lines.

    In the past at the Hoover open we had a hole where you had to go through 2 soccer goals for a mando

    You mean the vertical mandos?

    Yes, that's why we convinced Bob Horning to create a mando on #18 at Horning's Hideout. Originally he just had the #13 fairway marked as O.B., but that doesn't stop people on #18 from throwing in that direction and hoping to land in safe territory.

    Because without the mando tree a player can drive up the other fairway (over or through the OB fence) and try to hyzer skip it back in-bounds. That can make walking down the other fairway dangerous. That congested area of the course is already dangerous enough, the mandos keep it only mildly insane...

    It is a sad day when a key tree like that one goes away...

    Well, there is a new ribbon on the (now) first tree on the right side up by the basket. We've been playing the hole with that as a mando since the other tree came down.

    Well, it's still O.B. if you go past the fence, isn't it?
