Sunday and Monday winds

We had the course picked up pretty well prior to Sunday. Looks like some micro-bursts went through. The winds created a big mess. One area that was really interesting is the fairway of one blue shown below. The branches were scattered in a narrow band, almost like they were placed there.
Well, it finally happened. I would often wonder if I would be taken out by the limb on seven red. I would pass under it and hold my breath. I even had a professional arborist look at the branch to ensure it was safe. He claimed it had a solid attachment point to the tree and was extremely strong.
Well, it went down, and I was not under it.
It has left a rather large wound in the tree, this could be the beginning of the end for that old fella.
