I know it's probably for safety sakes but really?
How about we just put the clowns mouth hole back into effect as well?
I figure if you leave it the way it is with the understanding that players who throw while players on 17 are in putting range will take a one or two stroke penalty and be forced to re-tee without question. That way you keep it safe for everyone involved with out eliminating the preferred route. Now it's a side arm dream or a hopeful rhbh hyzer flip.
There's an easy shot there, if you throw an Epic or a thumber.
The hole was designed with the tree being a Mando from the very beginning, the peninsula with the OB was my addition to the hole for the tournament.
I gained a few strokes on Gordy one year thanks to the clowns mouth.
