Wow....as a tourney player, I hate the rule. It just ADDS something into the game that doesn't need to be there. If you take the rule out, everyone has the same chance. If you put the rule in, some will get through and some won't. Quit adding luck based penalties to my game please.

Don't throw into trees and you won't have any problems. It's as simple as that.

Even simpler than that:  leave the rule dormant.


Don't apply it---be default, it doesn't apply---and those who throw into trees can be penalized by loss of distance, bad kicks, bad lies, and the other effects of missing the fairway, without an unlucky 1% getting an extra penalty stroke to boot.

Bam!  Nicely stated.

So all throws are to be within the boundries of the hole and no more than 6 feet off the ground, great rule.
