re: the distance competition: Any video? I don't see any on usdgc.com or on youtube.
...the shortest section to clear the lake is 510 feet while it takes a 630-foot shoot to clear the road.
One of the highlights of the exhibition was when long-bomber Garrett Gurthie of Florida, threw a drive left-handed (his opposite) in memory of lefty Craig Leyva, who passed away this year.
Gurthie then proceeded to clear the lake with a Roc followed by a Putter (with his right hand).
