Round 16: A First Win for Kim

31st August:
[Presentation 2019Aug31a]
Trophy Presentation

The heavy rain for the days leading up to the round deterred many players, banned the use of golf carts and prompted the postponing of the "Doing It For Jarrod" round.

An advantage of the poor conditions meant that we had the course to ourselves for most of the round. The soggy course held no fears for the regular players and notably Kim was striking the ball impressively.

Rules of the Round:

The Rights of the single player.

Does a golfer playing alone have any right to play through, or does a single have to allow all other groups to play through despite being faster?

The etiquette section of the Official Rules of Golf used to say:
"A single player has no standing and should give way to a match of any kind."

However, this rule was changed in 2004.

The rule is now as follows.

5.6 Unreasonable Delay; Prompt Pace of Play
b. Prompt Pace of Play

A round of golf is meant to be played at a prompt pace.

Your pace of play is likely to affect how long it will take other players to play their rounds, including both those in your group and those in following groups. You are encouraged to allow faster groups to play through.

The implication is that the definition of a group includes a single player.

 

16.1 Abnormal Course Conditions (Including Immovable Obstructions)

This Rule covers free relief that is allowed from interference by animal holes, ground under repair, immovable obstructions or temporary water:

These are collectively called abnormal course conditions, but each has a separate Definition.

This Rule does not give relief from movable obstructions (a different type of free relief is allowed under Rule 15.2a) or boundary objects or integral objects (no free relief is allowed).

a. When Relief Is Allowed

(1) Meaning of Interference by Abnormal Course Condition. Interference exists when any one of these is true:

  • The player’s ball touches or is in or on an abnormal course condition,
  • An abnormal course condition physically interferes with the player’s area of intended stance or area of intended swing, or
  • Only when the ball is on the putting green, an abnormal course condition on or off the putting green intervenes on the line of play.

If the abnormal course condition is close enough to distract the player but does not meet any of these requirements, there is no interference under this Rule.

(2) Relief Allowed Anywhere on Course Except When Ball Is in Penalty Area. Relief from interference by an abnormal course condition is allowed under Rule 16.1 only when both:

  • The abnormal course condition is on the course (not out of bounds), and
  • The ball is anywhere on the course, except in a penalty area (where the player’s only relief is under Rule 17).
Weather:

Overcast and cool with occasional rain showers.




Round 15: Clean sweep averted

17th August:
[Presentation 2019Aug17a]
Trophy Presentation

Today's game was teetering on the brink of a clean sweep, with Craig winning the first 12 skins. The next 5 holes were halved with 6 skins riding on the last. But Mark hit a stunning second shot into the 18th, securing a comfortable par and averting the clean sweep.

The most remarkable thing about today's round was not the good fortune Craig had but the bad luck Mark had. His luck included nearly being hit on the 10th and losing a ball that should have been in the middle of the fairway on the 17th. Very mysterious.

Stableford Individual Scores
[Name (hcap) Points Skins]:
Birdies:

None.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

PeterD with a tee shot to 7.25 PDS.

Longest drive (13th hole):

PeterD wind assisted shot of 245m.

Interesting Shots:

Mark's second to the 18th, rivaling last weeks shot from Kim as the shot of the year.

Catering:

by PeterD, next time by Craig.

Rules of the Round:

No controversy this round.

Weather:

Another nice sunny winters day.

3rd August:

Stroke Play Individual Scores
[Name (hcap) Gross Net Skins]:
Birdies:

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

PeterD with a tee shot to 13 CCS.

Longest drive (13th hole):

Craig near the top of the hill.
