removing snow off of branches question

So played a round today...and the snow was making branches hang down and basically block the area right in front of the teepad ... is it legal to shake the snow off the limb so it lifts back up to its "intended" position? Just curious as you arent actually removing anything from in front of your lie...but you are technically improving your lie... I dunno...just curious

You can't remove the snow if the branches are in front of your lie/teepad. But if your group coming from the previous hole happens to approach the teepad from the front and accidentally bumps the branches...

HA!!!

You should have shaken the branches hanging over the tee pad harder! "I didn't mean for the snow up there to move, I swear!"

Illegal, don't even try. Can you pump a lake dry if your disc lands in it?

Only if the lever controlling the dam is in your lie.

I assumed it was illegal...It was also stupid to be playing WHILE a foot of snow was falling...so...live and learn

Can a TD make an exception on a certain hole for the tourney?

I think TD could allow removal of "casual water" that's located above the ground.

How close to the tee pad were the branches. If on your practice throwing motion you accidentally bumped the branch and the snow were to fall off i see no harm since you didn't mean to hit the branch. you were just trying to figure out the best throwing option for that hole.
