2020 Xmas Round

19th December:
[Presentation 2020Dec19a]
2020 Playing Group

We had a field of six playing in the 2020 Christmas round. Mark, the latest Skins Champion, was a late withdrawal with health issues and we were joined by Sujay for his first Christmas Classic round.

The damp weather made play uncomfortable for some, but not for our low handicappers: PeterD and Kim. Kim demonstrated the skills gained on his recent intensive golfing holiday and took the Championship by 4 points.

The Nth Turramurra competition was the usual single stableford and 2BBB. The winner scored 38 points and Kim was the runner-up on 36 points. Kim and PeterD missed out on the 2BBB prize.

N.T.C.C. Champion for 2020

The winner is Kim with 36 points with PeterD the runner-up on 32 points. The trophy for 2020 was presented to Kim by the 2019 champion Craig.

[Presentation 2020Dec19c]
NTP Winner
Longest drive (13th hole):

no player made it to the fairway although Kim was very close. After some active discussion it was determined that Kim should be the custodian of this trophy until next NTCC. Kim was equal Longest Driver leader for the year and PeterD had left the building.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

Kim with a tee shot 2.75 pds from the flag, ahead of the early mark set by Sujay.

[Presentation 2020Dec19d]
Bradman Award Winner
Bradman Award:

The Bradman award goes to David with PeterH close behind.

Interesting Shots:

on the 15th, Craig tried a bump and run onto the green but was frustrated by the green-side bunker: first in, then out and finally back in.

Catering:

it was intended that the beer and nibbles should be shared today, but, after the recent increase in Covid-19 cases on the Northern Beaches, we decided to avoid sharing.

Conditions:

overcast, warm and humid with steady misty rain for the duration of the round.

Rules of the Round:

Rule 13 - Putting Greens

13.1 Actions Allowed or Required on Putting Greens

d. When Ball or Ball-Marker Moves on Putting Green

There are two specific Rules for a ball or ball-marker that moves on the putting green.

(1) No Penalty for Accidentally Causing Ball to Move. There is no penalty if the player, opponent or another player in stroke play accidentally moves the player’s ball or ball-marker on the putting green.

The player must:

  • Replace the ball on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated) (see Rule 14.2), or
  • Place a ball-marker to mark that original spot.

Exception – Ball Must Be Played as It Lies When Ball Begins to Move During Backswing or Stroke and Stroke Is Made (see Rule 9.1b).

Rule 18 - Stroke-and-Distance Relief; Ball Lost or Out of Bounds; Provisional Ball

18.1 Relief Under Penalty of Stroke and Distance Allowed at Any Time

At any time, a player may take stroke-and-distance relief by adding one penalty stroke and playing the original ball or another ball from where the previous stroke was made (see Rule 14.6).

The player always has this stroke-and-distance relief option:

  • No matter where the player’s ball is on the course, and
  • Even when a Rule requires the player to take relief in a certain way or to play a ball from a certain place.

Once the player puts another ball in play under penalty of stroke and distance (see Rule 14.4):

  • The original ball is no longer in play and must not be played.
  • This is true even if the original ball is then found on the course before the end of the three-minute search time (see Rule 6.3b).

But this does not apply to a ball to be played from where the previous stroke was made when the player:

  • Announces that he or she is playing a provisional ball (see Rule 18.3b), or
  • Is playing a second ball in stroke play under Rule 14.7b or 20.1c(3).
Annual General Meeting

Not a lot of enthusiasm for AGM proposals or discussion; just the usual hilarity about the offering of new founding memberships.

Craig suggested an amendment of the Skins Qualification Rule 2012. The proposed rule would read as follows, with the added condition underlined.

Players must complete two (2) qualifying rounds in the last six (6) months before becoming eligible to win skins. In addition, players must participate in the post match socialising for, at least, the time set by early leaver PeterD. Special dispensation may be granted by a simple majority of the Founding Members.

Round 23: Mark Ends with Eleven

5th December:
Trophy Presentation
Trophy Presentation

Craig and Mark showed good form following the tough stroke play rounds for the club championship. In this round, Mark scored well on the holes that mattered and finished with an impressive 11 skins.

Our 2020 skins championship finish was tense until the last putt on hole 18. The result was a one skin win to Mark just ahead of Craig.

The NT competition was individual stableford and 2BBB. The winner scored 43 points and the 2BBB winners made 48 points.

The mystery absence of Kim has been solved: a birthday golfing junket to the north of the state.
