Conrad Damon wrote:Your interpretation appears correct to me. The picnic table is part of the course and is treated as if it were a bush or any other obstacle. If the player can mark a lie underneath, that is what they do. The top of the picnic table is not a playing surface; that has the corollary that a shot that lands and stays on top of the picnic table is marked directly underneath, just as if it had stuck near the top of a bush. Generally, picnic tables are open enough that a lie can be marked underneath. There are some solid
concrete picnic tables where that's not true, but a disc cannot go underneath them anyway.
The player can always choose to take optional relief or an optional rethrow at the cost of a penalty throw.
