That situation is one where a re-throw from the original position is justified. Off the tee, if one has reasonable access to the disc and is able to throw it, then it's better to throw from there and be lying 2 than to re-tee and be lying 3 from the subsequent throw... especially for these pros that can make up bad throws much better than (most) casual players can...
2016 USWDGC. I remember it as it was the subject of discussion at tourney central after the round because Terry Miller was looking for one of us on staff to go out with him to shoot a little rules explanation to tack on to the video.

From what I saw most were legal or too close to call, but a few of them looked like he was in the air still holding his disc.

After seeing 2 rounds of unique shots through some well defined wooded fairways... it was sure nice to see 18 holes of throwing a distance driver into an open field.

I find it ironic that many then clamor for better catching baskets and now provide a path to playing tough elevation holes early in a round, to give pros a better chance, when they are fresh.

I honestly found that part of the challenge and reputation of DeLa was the brutal finish. In fact, I might go as far to say it is one of the signature feature of this course.
Paige Pierce agrees with you. I asked her about the changes at some point in commentary, and she talked about how it used to be an advantage for her to finish with a tough hike. Others might get tired, but she didn't.

But I can see why. Just a bummer I couldn't play it before it got drastically changed.
The course isn't changed at all, just the tourney layout. This will have no effect on your round in July.

Unlucky with tree sticks.

Anyway, while were on the subject, I still posit that it is impossible to get directly killed by a disc. Sure, a weak old person gets a driver in the nose from top of the world, the trauma might lead to complications in the worst case, but otherwise healthy person, nope, dont see it happening.

The tomahawk/thumber rule is crazy. How about grenades or otherwise crazy steep spike hyzers?
Kristine King came close a couple years ago at Masters Cup. She was in the parking lot when an errant drive from top of the world hit her in the head, and knocked her out.

As for the weather in round 2. It rained the entire time for FPO, but really didn't start raining hard until 2 holes left to go, which is when MPO was just kicking off.

I agree. I was getting so tired of watching interesting golf, it was nice to just be bored.

Great to see Garrett win a big one though!!!

I hope it's not too early for spoilers. Don't click unless you want to see the effects of every score on every hole for the top ten in ratings or finishing place.

Can you spot the island hole with re-throw?
