Is this the Red course hole 12 we're talking about for rollers vs air? Is this how it played at Worlds? 260 ft? As shown?

The long pin played is to the left along the brush line and about 25 feet longer. The greenery near the tee was trimmed back plus brush along the ground about halfway there on the left. If the two trees in line to the left of the pin in the picture were taken out, the airshot would then be way too easy.

The right gap is about the size of a disc, the left gap is about the size of 2 discs, and then there's an inside route just left of that (over the disc in the picture). The pin we played would not be visible in this picture long and left.

The gap you fools see for the thumber looks to be from a short tee ..... if you look at the first pick it looks like there is a long tee, where there is no thumber gap from there .... I'm assuming they played the long tee for worlds

You dont need a ceiling for a thumber. They work just as well thrown low to the ground, whenever you get done :lol: And usually get a nice skip and roll when done this way

I know the shot and I highly doubt it would work on this hole, just looks to tight and too long for that shot.

Ok...looking at that first picture...I will retract my previous statement.

Seconded...to much sway right to left for that shot to work consistently...you'd need a good amount of technical luck for it to work

I played with one guy who threw thumbers, and I think he threw 10 of them.
