Ouch. But, nice par!
On that topic: take relief. I never throw hole 1 from that mossy sidewalk with the exposed round aggregate. I throw from the grass to the left of the sidewalk. It's not the most level ground, and there is a tree root, but you can find a line, and it is much less dangerous. Heck, I am just laying up when we play the tournament pin anyway!
I propose that we continue to allow blanket relief on all teepads during winter team golf. Specifically: up to 2 meters on either side of the teepad, and up to 5 meters behind it.
Let's be safe out there! I have personally transported a player to the hospital from an injury during team golf, and I can name others also hospitalized in seasons past. Let's have a clean, injury-free season!
