Round 12: Last hole thriller

25th June:
[Presentation 2022Jun25a]
Round 12 Winner

The round was a very tight skins race with the last hole clutch putt by PeterD resulting in a 3 way tie of 5 skins each for PeterD, Mark and Craig. After a countback, Craig was eventually declared the winner, having won 4 holes compared to 3 for the other ties.

This round was very relaxed compared to recent rounds and resulted in some good scoring by all players including a bunch of birdies.

The Nth Turramurra competition continued with the usual single stableford and 2BBB. The A grade winner scored 39 points and the B grade winner scored 38 points. 2BBB winners scored 47 points.

Round 11: PeterH Best of the Worst

11th June:
[Presentation 2022Jun11a]
Round 11 Presentation

The round started poorly with long queues at the first tee and many enquiries about our tee time. The normally placid Mark eventually changed the response to "what is YOUR tee time?".

Very early on the group focus moved on to winning skins as the stableford scores were in trouble. A number of holes were won with single points.

The Nth Turramurra competition continued with the usual single stableford and 2BBB. Both A grade and B grade winners scored 36 points. The 2BBB winners scored 43 points.

Interesting Shots:

Some interest may have been the count of our total number of wipes: 33!

Conditions:

Sunny and cool with stiff breeze at times.

Rules of the Round:

Rule 10.1 Making a Stroke

Purpose of Rule: Rule 10.1 covers how to make a stroke and several acts that are prohibited in doing so. A stroke is made by fairly striking at a ball with the head of a club. The fundamental challenge is for you to direct and control the movement of the entire club by freely swinging the club without anchoring it.

a. Fairly Striking the Ball

In making a stroke:

  • You must fairly strike at the ball with the head of the club such that there is only momentary contact between the club and the ball and you must not push, scrape or scoop the ball.
  • If your club accidentally hits the ball more than once, there has been only one stroke and there is no penalty.



Round 10: Steve takes the count-back

28th May:
[Presentation 2022May28a]
Round 10 Winner

A field of three skins players started in this round and we were joined by Lei Cui to make up the foursome. Play was slow as most balls had to be recovered from the mud, cleaned and placed before taking a shot. Scoring was tough for some although Lei made 24 points on the front 9 and included a near hole in one on the 7th.

There was some discussion required to award the round win as a count-back was required. For a short time it seemed that PeterD had won the coveted triple crown. A quick review of Skins Rule 3a on the website clarified the situation and Steve took the win with a greater number of hole wins 6 to 5. No formal presentation was made as the trophy remains with Kim after his win in round 7.

During the brief post round discussions, some Skins Rules clarifications or extensions were suggested. It is hoped that the founding fathers will add these discussion points to the agenda for the next AGM.

  1. If a player withdraws before the end of the round due to injury or lack of interest, does that player retain any skins won to that point?
  2. If a skins round is abandoned or shortened before completion due to weather or course conditions, are the skins won to that point to be awarded? And if so, is there a minimum numbers of holes to be played before this can happen?

The Nth Turramurra competition continued with the usual single stableford and 2BBB. The A grade winner scored 39 and the B grade winner scored 42 points. Lei was the A grade runner-up on count-back with 39 points.

Stableford Individual Scores
[Name (hcap) Points Skins]:
2BBB Stableford Scores:
Birdies:
Longest drive (13th hole):

PeterD with a tee shot of 200m.

Nearest to the pin (14th hole):

PeterD with a tee shot to 6.0pds.

Interesting Shots:

Lei made a birdie on the par three 7th after a spectacular tee shot. The tap-in putt was 10cm.

Conditions:

The Nth Turramurra weather was sunny and cool until some breeze and cloud came in late in the round. As in recent rounds, fairways had wet and muddy areas and the rough was waterlogged in places. In contrast, the greens were in perfect condition.
