our course will never ever be anything like official and is strictly private but nevertheless we want to follow pdga-rules of course. we already played some minor tournaments and two of them had a double mando with rules like continue from your lie and make it through the mando.
so do you know of any legitimate rule supporting our idea? are there any yt-videos showing "our" ruling? or do you think this is completely bs and we should install a dropzone?
Just curious, but why do you want to play it this way?

A few questions on the hole:
- how far off the tee is this mando?
- how far from the pin is the mando?

My main concern here is twofold:
- if this course is to be used for pdga events you won't be able to use this ruling.
- depending on the answers to the above, it could be overly punitive. If the mando is close to the tee and I throw 200' past it I have to throw 200' back to the AND place the shot in a way that allows me to navigate the mando.

I still think it's OB explaining that just like if a disc is in a tree you have to mark the lay directly under, I explained if you make a mark under the twigs then its obviously OB, nobody else saw this.
If you don't make them play by the rules who is going to?
