I don't know how with computer/cell phone internet, how radar couldn't have helped make the call. I was at swope and it looked like it might stay south and it darkened up out east and I saw some bolts. These were already by us. Then winds picked up and then it dumped sideways. Finishing hole 7 Pete Cashen stopped us and hooked a ride up right as the rain started. Thanks for the ride. I would ultimately say if you're worried lightning is gonna hit nearby then stop, head to the TD and demand a stoppage. I think swope was handled fine. I've rarely seen players argue to stop for safety during the round.
Remember the days when we all had sub100 tags? Now were the dumping ground for the high ones. When 2014 tags come out and we start playing we should have a forced acefund or some wager. Maybe even a play 2-3 fridays before you can participate in all in tags?
This is not directed at anyone in particular. I've just seen people show up once, take the goods, and then poof, gone. Oh well.
