I'll have to look for the new farther tee pad when the snow clears thanks for the info.
The only problem I could think of for what ever wrap was used involved keeping the bands adjustable for growth, have to expand them every year or so to keep from strangling the growth, otherwise I think the old rubber is the way to go IMHO. If they do decide to kill the trees, ask if they can just top them, and make intentional posts. Was watching DG Live on youtube with the Helsinki tourney and their tunnel shot was an interesting "hazard."
one of my goals for this year would be to get out for more work parties. My frustration level was elevated every time I found a major (or minor) work party was being held on the weekend I work. felt like a schmuck playing on the backs of those who worked to make highbridge look as good as it does.
Thanks for all you guys do. I will still bring sustenance if needed on days I am working, just let me know what you want (non ETOH beverages only though, teetotaler here)
