    Faldo is back because Zinger crapped himself at the US Open. Simple enough

    Internal OB = War crime

  3. David George says:

    I have no problem with internal out of bounds. Their course, their rules! AND, I would enforce play it as it lies. No free drops from spectator stands, walkways, equipment trucks, anything. You hit it there, you deal with it 😁
    Just like club golfers have to.

  4. You can't be bombing patrons buying merchandise, food and booze. At most tour events it's a free drop from hospitality areas within the course boundaries. Additionally those areas typically don't encroach on holes.

  5. Merlin says:

    Can we get any further detail on the “over the fence” option that Homa’s caddie was commenting on?

  6. Shane M says:

    Internal OB is rad. Props to the R&A for not caving in to the players.

  7. Blujay says:

    Fun video. Keep 'em coming.

  8. Bards says:

    Lol. In England drinking guinness .

  9. I hate internal out of bounds areas. Out of bounds separating the course from surrounding properties is perfectly fine with me, but using OB on the internal areas of the Irish to define a hole's shape shouldn't be used!!! Especially in a Major tournament like The Open Championship!!!
