    Yes! I had never hit it before, not even once. But hit it twice in the last clash, once with 3W, once with driver. Both lost balls exactly as you say, 4 yards in front of the tee box.

    I thought it was just one of those complete chance things, but then I read this.... Suspect the tree may have grown with the last update? ! Lol

    Let me inform you that there is also a creek down there. I found it once. LOL

    Yes, I've hit it a couple of times but it's very rare and difficult to do

    This isn't really legit as I was deliberately aiming for the trees, but I just wanted to see how difficult it was. Had to have a fair few tries but I got them eventually.

    Apologies for the audio but I haven't yet worked out how to separate my audio channels in OBS, and I wanted to cut out as much of the music as I could to avoid YouTube copyright issues without taking out the WGT audio as well...

    LMAO. Scott that is funny as hell. Good job. Plus I don't think anybody's looking at you just to see about copyright infringements.

    some trees seem to be club/ ball specific - as a different combination allows for a different trajectory.  but there are shots I won't attempt with lower end Srixon balls even with maxed out apparel, that I can pull off with a better ball and no apparel.

    I've hit the tree to the left of the tee box a few times over the years. But it's probably been at least 2 years since i've done that. It's rare enough i don't think it's worthwhile to think that it will and avoid going at green.

    The old saying ... trees are 90% air.

    I try fly through that tree almost every time.  Sometimes it does not work.  Suck it up and move on when it doesn't.

    I can add other holes to that list ... BP2, Oly1 and 10 come to mind.

      Full backspin will decrease your chances of hitting any tree . By how much ? IDK . But it is a considerable amount .

    You can also hit a draw around both trees. Works well especially at BPB #2.
