Round 9: PeterH is Still Leading

15th May:
[Presentation 2021May15a]
Trophy Presentation

Just like the sports reporting cliché, the scoring today was in two halves. PeterH scored well on the front nine and managed to accumulate enough skins to take the round.

Mark made 22 points on the back nine including two 4 pointers in succession. Sujay scored 20 on the back nine but his good holes failed to provide many skins.

The Nth Turramurra competition was single and 2B Aggregate stableford. The individual winner scored 42 points and the 2B Aggregate winners scored 74 points.

Individual Stableford Scores
[Name (hcap) Points Skins]:
2B Aggregate Stableford Scores:

15th (par 3): Mark.

Longest drive (13th hole):

Mark with a tee shot of 185m.

Interesting Shots:

On the 12th, Mark spectacularly chipped in from 40 metres. Unfortunately it was for a double bogie 6 following a lost tee shot.

Catering:

has ceased.

Rules of the Round:

No rules today.

Weather:

Fine,cool and windy.




Round 8: Kim is Back

1st May:
[Presentation 2021May01a]
Trophy Presentation

Another stroke play round today and Kim started on fire with spectacular recovery shots taking the first five skins with ease culminating with a birdie on the 5th. The Skins were spread a little more evenly as we moved on but Kim could not be overtaken.

As usual, the stroke play round exposed some flaws with our group recording scores of 1 ten, 2 nines and 3 eights.

The Nth Turramurra competition was stroke play with 76 competitors. The winner scored 61 net.

Strokeplay Individual Scores (par 68)
[Name (hcap) Gross / Net Skins]:
Birdies:

5th (par 3): Kim.
17th (par 4): PeterH.

Longest drive (13th hole):

Craig with a drive of 170 metres after some confusion with a crow theft.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

Kim with a tee shot to 4ccs.

Interesting Shots:

Craig managed to save par on the 6th when his approach shot hung onto the steep fringe of the green. PeterH had no such luck with 2 OOB shots and a missed approach shot before settling on a sextuple bogie 10.

The longest drive hole took longer than usual with the disappearance of 3 of the 4 balls (Kim was using an adjacent fairway). The mystery was solved when a crow was spotted escaping with evidence in the beak.

Catering:

after a casual poll of the available skins players, self-catering is now permanent. The poll results:

Rules of the Round:

6.3 Ball Used in Play of Hole

Purpose of Rule: A hole is played as a progression of strokes made from the teeing area to the putting green and into the hole. After teeing off, the player is normally required to play the same ball until the hole is completed. The player gets a penalty for making a stroke at a wrong ball or a substituted ball when substitution is not allowed by the Rules.

c. Wrong Ball

(1) Making Stroke at Wrong Ball. A player must not make a stroke at a wrong ball.

Exception – Ball Moving in Water: There is no penalty if a player makes a stroke at a wrong ball that is moving in water in a penalty area or in temporary water:

  • The stroke does not count, and
  • The player must correct the mistake under the Rules by playing the right ball from its original spot or by taking relief under the Rules.

Penalty for Playing Wrong Ball in Breach of Rule 6.3c(1): General Penalty.

In stroke play, the player must correct the mistake by continuing play with the original ball by playing it as it lies or taking relief under the Rules:

  • The stroke made with the wrong ball and any more strokes before the mistake is corrected (including strokes made and any penalty strokes solely from playing that ball) do not count.
  • If the player does not correct the mistake before making a stroke to begin another hole or, for the final hole of the round, before returning his or her scorecard, the player is disqualified.

(2) What to Do When Player’s Ball Was Played by Another Player as Wrong Ball. If it is known or virtually certain that the player’s ball was played by another player as a wrong ball, the player must replace the original ball or another ball on the original spot (which if not known must be estimated) (see Rule 14.2).

This applies whether or not the original ball has been found.

Weather:

Fine and humid.




Round 7: A Second Win for Sujay

17th April:
[Presentation 2021Apr17a]
Trophy Presentation

After a large number of withdrawals for various reasons we were left with just two players today. The conditions were overcast with no wind and should have led to good scores.

Both players started well but faded as the round went on with Sujay taking a second win for the year.

The Nth Turramurra competition was stableford and 2BBB. The individual winner scored 42 points and the 2BBB winners scored 48 points.

Individual Stableford Scores
[Name (hcap) Points Skins]:
2BBB Stableford Scores:
Birdies:

5th (par 3): Sujay.

Longest drive (13th hole):

PeterH with a tee shot of 204m.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

PeterH with a tee shot to 12.4 phs.

Interesting Shots:

Sujay made the birdie on the 5th with a 10 metre double breaking putt.

Catering:

self-catering continued.

Rules of the Round:

No rules today.

Weather:

overcast and still with high humidity.
