The ideal placement of trees is for them to be just behind the tee box on any given hole.
That way, I can stand in the shade while I wait to hit my tee shot and then never encounter them again until the next hole.
Also. Water should stay in water buckets.

Played with the new Hogan irons. They are a club longer on average for me. I will have to get used to that as I hit a bunch of shots over the back of greens. Really like them overall though, the combo set doesn't really even fell like it is one too me. Love having the blades 8 iron and down. I am curious if I would like the BH Icon blades in a 7 or a 6 as well maybe.
I am working on some things with the swing to get some more consistent face angles held through impact. Swinging the driver decently well, but I am using a completely different swing than my irons for it to do so. One day I won't need to do that is the hope. Can't really hit anything right now after driver until I get to a 5 iron, so I have some work to do.
What I find most interesting about that graphic is that everything else seems to be accurate (within a couple of points), besides speed. With that ball speed increase we would also expect to see over 50 yards gained, not the 30 that it shows (which is accurate).
Not sure if I'm right about this but wouldn't trees also absorb more water/fertilizer? Therefore taking it away from the grass? I'm not a tree hugger but I do like trees on the golf course. The only time I am in favor of removing them is when they keep the sunlight and air away from the greens.
