short tee and rethrows
chuck / steve....
i like the idea of a 3rd drop zone halfway to the green from the short tee, therefore approx 90 feet away.
i am pondering which of the three following rules of play makes most sense for this hole:
1. If you miss the green from the pro tee you proceed to the short tee, aka the drop zone for missed shots from the pro tee. if you miss from the short tee you then advance to the weenie tee 90 feet from the green.
2. since it is the pro tee you keep throwing from the pro tee until you do land in bounds on the island green, no matter how many times you have to re-throw from that tee
3. a compromise between # 1 and #2 is that if you miss your first two attempts from the pro tee, THEN you advance to the drop zone / short tee. this would eliminate the possibility for a double digit score on Hole #1. an 18-hole round could be fugly if you score a 10 or more on your first hole.
which of these 3 scenarios makes the most sense? is there a 4th way to play the hole that makes the most sense?
