On what grounds?
It has been mentioned here that the purpose of such swale is to collect and divert water. This is from the Definition of Penalty Area:
A penalty area is:
•• Any body of water on the course (whether or not marked by the Committee),
including a sea, lake, pond, river, ditch, surface drainage ditch or other open
watercourse (even if not containing water),
Seems pretty straightforward to me. That means also that any water in those swales is NOT Temporary Water and the is NO free relief from them whatsoever.
Shot 36-36 = 72 - 1 over on my home course. 3 birdies and 4 bogeys. Tied PR.
Windy with slight rain. Hosted 16 members of my other club to play with 15 members of this club. Amazing day. Good score was just a bonus.
Very, very quick video.
Thoughts? Some questions/comments:
Do you think 60° to 120° is a lot?
Is there a benefit in reducing that number/rotation?
Is this something you "do" or something that "happens"?
What are some other PGA Tour player numbers? What do you think?
