Then you'll know which tree to bring down next.
That's how I worked, by estimating where most of my errant shots would end and spend most of my energy clearing that spot.
I found Kent clearing a huge pile of sticks behind a tree about 40' to the right of hole 6's basket. I asked why he was doing that and he said, "I figure most of my putts will be coming from over here so I thought I'd clear me some space."
THAT is why we go to work parties.
