Round 3: Kim Coolly Moves to Second Place

20th February:
[Presentation 2021Feb20a]
Trophy Presentation

The skins event was broken into two groups today with Sujay joined by MarkT and Roy. PeterH played with Kim and PeterD.

Kim had waited until Stix was safely out of the field before making a return to Skins golf. It was a good move as he made 9 provisional skins and added one at the post match allocation.

The Nth Turramurra competition was the usual single stableford and 2BBB. The winner scored 40 points and the leading 2BBB scored 45 points.

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

None.

Longest drive (13th hole):

no tee shots made it to the fairway.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

Kim with a tee shot to 19 metres as measured by PeterD's rangefinder.

Interesting Shots:

PeterD played two spectacular approach shots to the 6th and the 13th greens leaving putts of a few centimetres. The shot on the 6th was from the long grass high above the green.

Catering:

self-catering is still happening.

Rules of the Round:

Rule 16.1 Abnormal Course Conditions (Including Immovable Obstructions)

This Rule covers free relief that is allowed from interference by animal holes, ground under repair, immovable obstructions or temporary water: These are collectively called abnormal course conditions, but each has a separate Definition.

a. When Relief Is Allowed

(1) Meaning of Interference by Abnormal Course Condition. Interference exists when any one of these is true:

  • The player’s ball touches or is in or on an abnormal course condition,
  • An abnormal course condition physically interferes with the player’s area of intended stance or area of intended swing, or
  • Only when the ball is on the putting green, an abnormal course condition on or off the putting green intervenes on the line of play.

If the abnormal course condition is close enough to distract the player but does not meet any of these requirements, there is no interference under this Rule.

b. Relief for Ball in General Area

If a player’s ball is in the general area and there is interference by an abnormal course condition on the course, the player may take free relief by dropping the original ball or another ball in this relief area (see Rule 14.3):

  • Reference Point: The nearest point of complete relief in the general area.
  • Size of Relief Area Measured from Reference Point: One club-length, but with these limits:
  • Limits on Location of Relief Area:
    • Must be in the general area,
    • Must not be nearer the hole than the reference point, and
    • There must be complete relief from all interference by the abnormal course condition.

Definition of General Area

The area of the course that covers all of the course except for the other four defined areas:

  1. the teeing area the player must play from in starting the hole he or she is playing,
  2. all penalty areas,
  3. all bunkers, and
  4. the putting green of the hole the player is playing.

The general area includes:

  • All teeing locations on the course other than the teeing area, and
  • All wrong greens.
Weather:

humid and mostly overcast, there was some sunshine and a few light rain showers.




Round 2: Mark Stretches His Lead

6th February:
[Presentation 2021Feb06a]
Trophy Presentation

Mark is still continuing his good form! This time he hit the front on the 9th and forged ahead from there.

David made a welcome return to golf and snapped up 2 skins.

The Nth Turramurra competition was stroke play and the playing conditions returned to normal with no preferred lies on the fairway and in the bunkers. The maximum score rule was in place and set to 10. NTP was on the 15th. The winner and runner-up both scored 9 under par net.

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

15th (par 3) Mark.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

Mark with a tee shot to 6.15 mbs.

Longest drive (13th hole):

PeterH with a tee shot of 204m just ahead of Mark with 203m. No triple crown today.

Interesting Shots:

David entertained us with his persistence with the trees, especially along the 11th fairway. Mark did join in with a 100 metre rebound across the 6th fairway.

Craig usually has the 18th under control but this time his spectacular chip over the bunker to the flag somehow ran off the back.

Catering:

self-catering is continuing.

Rules of the Round:

21.2 Maximum Score

a. Overview of Maximum Score

Maximum Score is a form of stroke play where a player’s or side’s score for a hole is capped at a maximum number of strokes set by the Committee, such as two times par, a fixed number or net double bogey.

The normal Rules for stroke play in Rules 1-20 apply, as modified by these specific Rules. Rule 21.2 is written for:

  • Scratch competitions, but can be adapted for handicap competitions as well, and
  • Individual play, but can be adapted for competitions involving partners, as modified by Rules 22 (Foursomes) and 23 (Four-Ball), and for team competitions, as modified by Rule 24.

b. Scoring in Maximum Score

(1) Player’s Score on Hole. A player’s score for a hole is based on the player’s number of strokes (including strokes made and penalty strokes), except that the player will get only the maximum score even if the actual score exceeds the maximum.

A player who does not hole out under the Rules for any reason gets the maximum score for the hole.

To help pace of play, players are encouraged to stop playing a hole when their score has reached the maximum.

The hole is completed when the player holes out, chooses not to do so or when his or her score has reached the maximum.

(2) Score Entered for Each Hole. To meet the requirements in Rule 3.3b for entering hole scores on the scorecard:

  • If Hole Is Completed by Holing Out:
    • When Score Is Lower Than Maximum. The scorecard must show the actual score.
    • When Score Is Same as or Higher Than Maximum. The scorecard must show either no score or any score at or above the maximum.
  • If Hole Is Completed Without Holing Out. If the player does not hole out under the Rules, the scorecard must show either no score or any score at or above the maximum.

The Committee is responsible for adjusting the player’s score to the maximum for any hole where the scorecard shows either no score or any score above the maximum and, in a handicap competition, for applying handicap strokes to the score entered for each hole.

c. Penalties in Maximum Score

All penalties that apply in stroke play apply in Maximum Score, except that a player who breaches any of these four Rules is not disqualified but gets the maximum score for the hole where the breach happened:

  • Failure to hole out under Rule 3.3c,
  • Failure to correct mistake of playing from outside the teeing area in starting a hole (see Rule 6.1b(2)),
  • Failure to correct mistake of playing a wrong ball (see Rule 6.3c), or
  • Failure to correct mistake of playing from a wrong place when there is a serious breach (see Rule 14.7b).

If the player breaches any other Rule with a penalty of disqualification, the player is disqualified.

After applying any penalty strokes, the player’s score for a hole cannot exceed the maximum score set by the Committee.

Weather:

Overcast with occasional light showers. The serious rain waited until the post match presentation.




Round 1: Mark Is Still On Top

23rd January:
[Presentation 2021Jan23a]
Trophy Presentation

Mark continued his good 2020 skins form and proceeded to dominate round one for 2021.

There was some early optimism in the first group as provisional skins were distributed very evenly. This all changed in the wrap up.

The Nth Turramurra competition was the usual single stableford and 2BBB. The winner scored 45 points and the leading 2BBB scored 52 points.

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

5th (par 3) PeterD
6th (par 4) Mark
7th (par 3) Mark
8th (par 5) PeterD.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

PeterD with a tee shot to 3ccs.

Longest drive (13th hole):

PeterD with a tee shot of 206m.

Interesting Shots:

PeterD chipped in on the 5th hole for a birdie from well below the green.

Catering:

self-catering is still happening.

Rules of the Round:

9.6 Ball Lifted or Moved by Outside Influence

If it is known or virtually certain that an outside influence (including another player in stroke play or another ball) lifted or moved a player’s ball:

  • There is no penalty, and
  • The ball must be replaced on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated) (see Rule 14.2).

This applies whether or not the player’s ball has been found.

But if it is not known or virtually certain that the ball was lifted or moved by an outside influence and the ball is lost, the player must take stroke-and-distance relief under Rule 18.2.

If the player’s ball is played as a wrong ball by another player, that is covered by Rule 6.3c(2), not by this Rule.

Penalty for Playing Incorrectly Substituted Ball or Playing Ball from a Wrong Place in Breach of Rule 9.6: General Penalty Under Rule 6.3b or 14.7a.

If multiple Rule breaches result from a single act or related acts, see Rule 1.3c(4).

Definition of Outside Influence

Any of these people or things that can affect what happens to a player’s ball or equipment or to the course:

  • Any person (including another player), except the player or his or her caddie or the player’s partner or opponent or any of their caddies,
  • Any animal, and
  • Any natural or artificial object or anything else (including another ball in motion), except for natural forces.
Weather:

Fine and hot.
