According to http://playdg.com/courses/?s=WI&c=blueberryhill&h=2, it's 370'
Still a rip though...


That actually makes more sense. I was looking at that shot, and thinking "no way that's over 400'."

Anyways, Marcus is tearing it up today. He's destroying Blueberry this morning.


Ya. Nice throw to get it parked, but I've deuced that hole on a similar shot and my two playing partners overthrew the pin. It's pretty downhill and the prevailing breeze usually makes for the hyzer.

Now then, 18 on Granite and 17 on Blueberry are another thing.

Markus was like Babe Ruth on BH 17. He said that he'd be going for the pin and he did and he parked. Very, very tough shot. Indeed, make-able by the likes of Avery and Doss as well, but in competition play at this level they wouldn't risk the shot...Markus did. I think DGTV has it as a shot of the day somewhere. I was standing about 40 feet away with a small group and beleive me, we were stunned. MK threw bombs all week.
Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.

Like I mentioned in a previous post, the Worlds' courses were extended for the tourney.
Blueberry Hill is normally 370. However from watching the video it did appear the tee was moved back significantly. I know what the hole looks like from the 370' tee. Markus was not throwing from the 370' tee. 530' may very well be accurate.

Did you throw hole 2 Bluberry during the 2007 Pro Worlds as in last week?

If not you probably did not throw the same hole they did. I parked hole 2 BH at the 2005 Mid Nationals. I also had several shots in practice in which I accidentally overdrove it by 150 feet almost hitting the Honka house. From the standard tee it is reachable with a midrange or even a putter if you are a big arm.

The video of Markus shows a different angle to the green than from the standard tee.

Sometimes videos and pictures of holes are deceiving. There are many holes on playdg.com that I don't recognize right away from the pictures because they look so much different in person.
