Even if you had the video, at best it would be like Tiger at the Players that one year. People trying to make definitive conclusions about the balls path using a skewed camera angle that shows nothing as their “evidence.” Possibly exacerbated by a dumb announcer doing the same.
But I agree fully with your base assertion.
My 17 year old son is really my only partner. I joined a league last year just to play more and with other people. It will be weird when he goes to college in the fall. Definitely need to find new partners.
Unfortunately, I recorded Saturday's action, but not Friday's. And I could not find any video replay of Reed's 5th hole Friday online. If anyone else has the recording, I would be interested to see if the video matches my recollection.
That said, I realize it would not be conclusive evidence either way. Just another thread in a line of things that make you say "hmmm...."
