Actually, under [Decision 1-4/10], he's entitled to free relief from the snake.

If his ball is in a hazard, he should drop in the same hazard, or one no closer to the hole.

Gee, that's great.  Has anyone heard the Masters started hours ago?  Maybe we could have a thread?

Without Tiger, golf is pretty much dead.

/Hey look, it's our annual Fred Couples sighting!  Will the 82 happen on Saturday or Sunday this year?

I see the Stadlers are on opposites ends of the leaderboard.

/yeah it's less interesting without Eldrick - lots of talent out there though, the weekend should be fun

Kuch is at even par and my personal hero, Miguel Angel Jiminez, is in red numbers. That's a good Thursday so far.

Dufner with a complete nightmare at 13.  Over the green in 2.

3- Chip across and off the green into the hazard
4- Pitch doesn't hold, rolls back into the creek
6- Duffed short of the creek from drop area
7- Pitch to 25 feet

Two putts for 9.

You can fly the green on an uphill, dogleg-left, 510 yard hole in 2?

The rest, I agree with you. But I'd most likely need 3 shots to go over the green.

Yeah, I'd have made 9 by laying up, dumping my approach in the water, hitting my 5th over, chipping on then three-putting.

And now it's Phil stealing a page from my book, three putts from inside 15 feet for a triple bogey 7 on the 7th.

Just popped in to ask if anyone remembers the Diamondbacks old sign:

"Do not reach where you cannot see, black widow spiders and rattlesnakes may be present."

Can't GIS-magic it into appearance.
