The rule for the Memorial changes every year - instead of just using common sense and having the OB line be the INSIDE of the wall where it meets the grass, and then any shot that hit the wall would have NEVER been IB, but no one can ever convince Ginnelly that common sense trumps having 150 people argue whether a shot 250 -350 feet away form the tee was ever in or ever hit the wall as sometimes the spotter isn't in position to give an accurate reading.

I have spent countless hours at that tee over the last several years since the redesign and it plays different for everyone instead of EXACTLY the same for everyone because of the "wall" issue.
And since that hole starts off your round, it could make or break it depending on how it is ruled and how your perceive it should have been ruled if your disc is anywhere close to the wall.

It is a stupid way to have an OB line for one of the premiere Events on the PDGA schedule in my opinion.
