Round 7: Second win for Kim
Kim and Craig managed the difficult conditions well and dominated the skins today leaving a mere 2 skins for the opposition.
Kim has now moved into the lead with Craig five skins behind.
Sadly, PeterD had to withdraw mid round due to an unfortunate back injury. There is speculation that the cause was bike riding earlier in the weekend on a low quality cycle.
The Nth Turramurra competition was the usual single stableford and 2BBB. The A grade winner scored 38 and the B grade winner scored 35 points. The leading 2BBB pair scored 42 points.
Stableford Individual Scores
[Name (hcap) Points Skins]:
- Kim (17) 33 10 skins
- Craig (23) 29 6 skins
- Mark (20) 25 1 skin
- PeterH (20) 24 1 skin
- Sujay (20) 25 0 skins
- PeterD (4) withdrew
- Remaining 0 skins.
2BBB Stableford Scores:
- Sujay & Craig 32
- Sujay & Mark 31
- PeterD & Kim no score
- PeterD & Craig no score
Longest drive (13th hole):
Sujay with a tee shot of 196m.
Nearest to the pin (14th hole):
PeterH made a tee shot to 3.6pds.
Mark's putting on the 6th hole prompted one of our rules today. His putt wandered a metre off line and stopped after striking a ball on the green.
On the 11th hole PeterH took the provisional skin with 1 point. There was much hilarity in the group about how 1 point could win a skin. Of course the 11th hole was the only skin won by PeterH.
Rules of the Round:
11.1 Ball in Motion Accidentally Hits Person or Outside Influence
a. No Penalty to Any Player
If a player’s ball in motion accidentally hits any person or outside influence:
- There is no penalty to any player.
- This is true even if the ball hits the player, the opponent or any other player or any of their caddies or equipment.
Exception – Ball Played on Putting Green in Stroke Play:
If the player’s ball in motion hits another ball at rest on the putting green and both balls were on the putting green before the stroke, the player gets the general penalty (two penalty strokes).
If you’re worried you might hit another ball that’s also on the putting surface, you can ask a player to mark it.
If they’re not willing, you can require them to do so – using Rule 15.3b – if, given the intended stroke, there is a ‘reasonable chance the player’s ball in motion could hit that ball’. In stroke play, the player required to lift or mark has the option to play first.
16.1 Abnormal Course Conditions (Including Immovable Obstructions)
e. Relief for Ball Not Found but in or on Abnormal Course Condition
If a player’s ball has not been found and it is known or virtually certain that the ball came to rest in or on an abnormal course condition on the course, the player may use this relief option instead of taking stroke-and-distance relief:
- The player may take relief under Rule 16.1b, c or d, using the estimated point where the ball last crossed the edge of the abnormal course condition on the course as the spot of the ball for purposes of finding the nearest point of complete relief.
- Once the player puts another ball in play to take relief in this way:
- The original ball is no longer in play and must not be played.
- This is true even if it is then found on the course before the end of the three-minute search time (see Rule 6.3b)
But if it is not known or virtually certain that the ball came to rest in or on an abnormal course condition and the ball is lost, the player must take stroke-and-distance relief under Rule 18.2.
The weather was dry and humid and the course provided many challenges. Most fairways had wet and muddy areas and the rough had long grass and plenty of water.
Special Course Conditions
- The 15th hole was out of play with 2 points allocated.
- 1 club length Preferred Lies "thru the green" [i.e. the general area].
- Bunkers to be treated as GUR.
- Two stroke penalty OOB / lost ball rule.
Round 6: Nth Turramurra Ambrose and Lawn Party
No skins for round 6 due to the North Turramurra Ambrose and Lawn Party.
Round 5: Too Much Rain
Some heavy rain in the morning meant that even the hardiest skins golfers stayed at home.
