Admittedly, I was in a rush and didn't go through my normal routine when laying out the ob on both #10 and #13. #10 ended up just a few feet tighter than it will likely be set up for the WO. On #13, the left side was intentionally made wider for this event. I may remove the left side added line altogether for the WO. The mistake I made on #13 was the right side, it was too far back, but only 10'-15' or so. I usually set it closer to the trees. Emac was one a the few that called out the mistake specifically. Since then, I have been thinking how get that line just right. I'll be shooting some distances to tweak the placement of that line to get a nice risk/reward balance for the WO. I want to see the big arms going for the green in 2, but I don't want to hand it to them on a silver platter. I don't think my original design is far off, I was just in a hurry on Friday and didn't get the line in the best spot. Even with the minor rushed mistakes, I don't feel the layouts on those holes made them ridiculously unplayable.
As a side note: A LOT of people misjudged the distance when around, or short of, the tree on #13 peninsula. The tree itself is 200' from the long pin, It's also uphill from there, into the wind (Sat.) and a pushing down (ltr) tail wind (Sun.). While spotting, I could tell before many throwers even threw, by their pre-shot routine, that they weren't going to make it to the green. Hopefully, Dick and JAT will put key distances on these holes for the WO caddy book.
