False, but it is my biggest nightmare and I constantly have dreams, year round, about being out on course and having no idea where to go. The colors on the flags are always a mushy grey so I can never tell, same with the numbers. So, I feel like I have done it hundreds of times, but luckily I haven't- YET!
