803.02.A

Play shall begin on each hole with the player throwing from within the teeing area. When the disc is released, at least one of the player’s supporting points must be in contact with the surface of the teeing area, and all the player’s supporting points must be within the teeing area. If a tee pad is provided, all supporting points must be on the pad at the time of release, unless the director has specified a modified teeing area for safety reasons. If no tee pad is provided, all supporting points at the time of release must be within an area encompassed by the front line of the teeing area and two lines perpendicular to and extending back three meters from each end of the front line. The front line of the teeing area includes the outside edges of the two tee markers. Running up from behind the teeing area before the disc is released is permitted. Following through in front of the teeing area is permitted provided there is no supporting point contact outside the teeing area when the disc is released

So, If I am wearing cleats, and playing a course with flypads, Ill tee off from the rubber? or say I have knee problems, and the fly pads exacerbate the issue.

If the Tee pad is slick, damaged, icey, dangerous etc.... you get 5m regardless behind the pad, if the pad is deemed unsafe.

According to 803.05.C, you can take relief. You simply back up behind the tee. That would be the nearest lie no closer to the hole and still on the line of play. You can only move up to 5 meters back.

I have a related question.

Has anyone here played hole #11 in Wrightwood??

The tee is directly behind 2 large pine trees. It's challenging for a RHBT, but damn near impossible for a LHBT. Is it legal to drive from 2m behind the teepad??

No. because you are not in harms way because of the teepad. Better learn how to do a LHFH

If it's that tough, I might try to learn how to throw opposite handed on that hole just to make sure I get a decent drive.

DAMN!!! LHFH is difficult too because of the angle. It's a damn good thing I don't intend to play in any tournaments there.
