The legendary Australian Norman Von Nida’s temperament on the course was Vesuvian. Once in an Australian tournament, players were permitted to take a free drop away from a tree if the tree was no smaller than 2 metres. Von Nida’s ball rolled up against a tree and an official ruled he had to play it. Von Nida challenged the ruling and a tape measure was brought out. The tree proved to be 2 metres and 2.5 centimetres tall. Von Nida played the shot from against the tree. Then, furiously wielding his iron like an axe, he chopped the tree to the ground.
