I wonder if I'm the only one who would have been reckless and tried to hit a stock shot JUUUUUST to the side of the fade/draw wall. Maybe that's against the rules - your ball has to actually fade or draw or something. But these guys were starting their balls at the edge of the fairway and trying to shape it back to the center. Seems much easier to me to just try to hit a little fade or draw instead of the 20 yard fade/draw. Or just play your stock shot, which is probably a...
40th. +3.
I think that's a good modification. I'd imagine trees and deep rough would be the things that would cause me the most trouble that wouldn't already be penalties.   Personally, there isn't much trouble that I see around greens that aren't penalties (I have too much experience playing out of deep rough, and rarely play on courses with lots of trees).

So Paddy needs a birdie just to force a playoff now? Ouch.
I'm not surprised. The courses I play have been pretty busy this past year.
Super impressed by Reed's performance so far. 
I was able to watch a lot of this today. Man, the wind was brutal out there. But it was really fun to watch. I personally really like this course.
