Round 22: Craig In Control

23rd November:
[Presentation 2019Nov23a]
Trophy Presentation

Craig had a fine round taking second place in the NT competition with 43 points and the NTP and a birdie on the 5th hole.

There were a number of four pointers scored, all on the front nine: 3 to Craig and 2 to Kim.

In the 2019 skins championship, Craig needed 10 in this match to catch Mark, but finished 3 skins short.

The disappointment showed as you can see on the right. He took the trophy and left early.

[You gotta have a dream]
You gotta have a dream ...

Our resident philosopher provided some sage advice during the round:

"You gotta have a dream, if you don't have a dream, How you gonna have a dream come true?"

This caused much misplaced hilarity in the gallery as it was assumed that this wisdom came from the children's film Frozen.

It turns out that the quote comes from a much more serious source: the song "Happy Talk" in the musical South Pacific.

Catering:

by PeterH. Next round to be catered by all at the Xmas round.

Rules of the Round:

No rules today.

Weather:

Overcast and fine with high humidity.

[Presentation 2019Nov09a]
Trophy Presentation

Kim is dominating the Skins results with three wins in succession.

One round to go for the 2019 Championship and despite Kim's good form, no-one can catch Mark.

PeterH with a tee shot to 7phs.

Longest drive (18th hole):

After all players missed the 13th fairway the longest drive moved to the 18th where Craig won with a tee shot of 175m.

Interesting Shots:

On the 14th green competition NTP, Kim landed his ball closest to the pin but did not qualify. PeterH then attempted to win the NTP with a tee shot 4.3 metres from the pin. It was a futile attempt however as a later player won with a 3.51m shot.

Catering:

by Craig. Next round to be catered by PeterH.

Rules of the Round:

18.2 Ball Lost or Out of Bounds: Stroke-and-Distance Relief Must Be Taken

b. What to Do When Ball Is Lost or Out of Bounds

If a ball is lost or out of bounds, the player must 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).

13.1 Actions Allowed or Required on Putting Greens

f. Relief Must Be Taken from Wrong Green

Interference under this Rule exists when your ball is on a wrong green or a wrong green physically interferes with your area of intended stance or area of intended swing.

When there is interference by a wrong green, you must not play the ball as it lies. Instead, you must take free relief by dropping the original ball or another ball in the relief area.

There is no relief under this Rule if interference exists only because you choose a club, type of stance or swing or direction of play that is clearly unreasonable under the circumstances.

Weather:

Overcast and windy early on, followed by sunny and hot.
