This year's USDGC enlightened me to something new...."The Buncr Rule".
I Don't know if others were already using it before. Definitely took the infamous 17 and toned it down just a touch.
Earlier in the broadcast, I was watching a dude come up short....shot after shot...like 4 times...thinking....."holy $#!t" ...."that's a double handful at best"....it wasn't till the second day I heard them mention the new rule.
I liked the new rule....adds difficulty without being completely devastating!!!
This could technically be factored into a course design....any course design.
If done tastefully, with a nice looking professionally done rock wall for maximum lifespan...It could add something cool to one of those boring transitional type holes that appear in most course designs. Could also be done with a rustic cattle fence type construction....old railroad ties....landscape timbers...or on the cheap with fallen tree trunks and logs.
Any thoughts on that?
How would you feel about something like that on your home course?
How would you play it in casual rounds?...i.e. by the course rule if were to be or would you shrug it off and play your lie where it landed?
