OK, I finally found a video of the shot. I guess I misunderstood the situation.

There's a lively discussion going on about the decision. Apparently the announcers agreed with me, that Na was taking relief from the curb of the cart path.

The next day The Golf Channel took it up. They agreed with you, that he took relief from ground under repair.

Looking at where the ball lay, I'd have to conclude you're right. If he were taking relief from the curb it wouldn't seem that his nearest point of relief could be on the cart path.

I'm still not clear if you can take relief from a part of an obstruction interfering with your shot without taking relief from the entire obstruction. There doesn't seem to be anything about it in the decision book.

Maybe I need to get a life.
