Every now and then I have to revise the design of a hole or the location of a tee pad because I was unable to concieve how errant a throw that some beginners are capable of throwing. Not only were they capable of throwing an extremely errant shot, but they were doing it over and over and over again, not just a flash in the pan. Accurately forecasting the worst shot possible on some holes in the vicinity of streets or other safety concerns is a real challenge.
