Big Oak Splits Along #6 Fairway

On Sunday 9/8, the big Coast Live Oak guarding the left side of #6 fairway split apart.  Many recognize it as the tree with a bluebird box on the side.  The entire left side of the tree came crashing down.  The event was a bit puzzling because there was no decay inside the trunk.  Fortunately no one was nearby. But the photos below show just how much potential energy is stored well above ground.
