RULES OF GOLF CLARIFICATION

RULES OF GOLF CLARIFICATION

 

The 2019 worldwide review of The Rules of Golf put forward several changes to the Rules, most of these were accepted by the R&A and put into play.

 

One of these suggestions:

 

That if a ball is lost the player has the option to drop a replacement ball on the fairway adjacent to the area where the ball is deemed to be lost, under a two-stroke penalty.

 

THE R&A, IN CONJUNCTION WITH CONGU (THE UK HANDICAPPING AUTHORITY) DECIDED NOT TO ALLOW THIS RULE CHANGE FOR COMPETITIVE GOLF (HANDICAP QUALIFYING COMPETITIONS) BUT WOULD ALLOW CLUBS TO CREATE A LOCAL RULE FOR NON-QUALIFYING GOLF.

 

THE BLANKNEY GOLF CLUB COMMITTEE DID NOT OP TO HAVE THIS LOCAL RULE.

 

THEREFORE, IF YOU LOSE A BALL PLAYING AT BLANKNEY, YOUR ONLY OPTIONS ARE TO PLAY ANOTHER BALL FROM WHERE YOU LAST PLAYED YOUR LOST BALL, UNDER A ONE STROKE PENALTY OR TO FORFEIT THE HOLE.

Dear Gents,

It gives me great pleasure to inform you that I have now been given the go-ahead to start competitions although there will be some differences this year.

I have not tried to revisit the three Qualifiers that we have missed but have re-allocated the two Board Competitions to later in the year.  I have decided not to run the Reg Woolley Knock-out this year.

The first one will be the June Qualifier on Monday, 29th June, stableford format, off the yellow tees.  The Qualifiers have always been a roll-up however due to the restrictions placed on us because of the virus we must formalise the running of them to allow us to start playing competitive golf again. 

Online booking for the competition will be done via the new ClubV1 Hub / HowdidIdo App details of which were emailed to you all by Graham a few months ago.  Once I receive all of your entries I will get the system to do a random draw (first time this has happened in truth!)  we play in 3 balls with 8-minute intervals between each group using the same guidelines that are in place now, i.e. do not arrive early,  no congregating in the car park or on the first tee.

Time slots that have been allocated for this competition are:

0754hrs – 0826hrs  Early birds

0834hrs – 1000hrs  Normal folks

1008hrs – 1032hrs  Night Owls

I trust that majority of you will be able to enter using the new Hub, if you know someone who can’t, please help them.  As a last resort please contact me and I will make the entry on your behalf.

Registration and payment will still be done in the pro shop.  The cost of this competition will be £2 with an optional two’s pot.  All payments must be by card no cash.

You are to collect your card at registration and fill your own card as neatly as possible with your name, correct handicap, date, tee used (yellow), time off and name of competition – JUNE QUALIFIER.

You are to mark your own card throughout your round in column A with your stableford score in the Points column.

You are to allocate a playing partner as a check scorer in your group and record his scores in the marker’s column on the left of the card, as if you had swapped cards.  You are to print your allocated playing partners name on the markers signature line so I can cross reference.

Once you have completed your round, players are to check their cards against their allocated check scorer.  Once the scores have been verified as correct the player is to sign his own card and enter the stableford score in the box provided on the bottom left of the card.

Your card is to be put in the foot bin at the entrance of the clubhouse in the correct lid.  This has 3 lids; one for gents, one for ladies and one for seniors.

Results will be published on the club website by the following Friday.

Flagsticks/Holes: If clubs have made the decision to modify the depth of the hole to allow players to remove the ball without touching the flagstick, scores will be acceptable for either competition or supplementary score purposes.  In such cases, the ball is considered holed if any part of the ball is below the surface of the putting green, even if not lodged against the flagstick.

Bunkers: As we know, the rakes have been removed.  Preferred lies within bunkers is permissible for competition or supplementary score purposes (Congu ruling). Please note the distance for preferred lies in the bunker is limited to 6 inches and the area cannot be smoothed before placing.

If I may encourage you to smooth the sand using your foot, club or personal rake if you have one once the shot has been played.

Are the competitions qualifying? - Yes.  I do accept that not being able to remove the pin whilst on the green is alien for some, but this is not seen as an overall disadvantage, and remains within the Rules of Golf as does the preferred lie within the bunker. As you would expect, you must complete the hole by ‘putting out’.  

Marking your own card is not normal practice, but these are extraordinary times and we must make some change to help mitigate against the potential of Covid 19 transmission.

Being in the open, in the fresh air, enjoying the exercise and in the company of your friends is an important tonic during these restrictions to normal life. We still have to be mindful of the risk, but these measures should help minimise any potential spread.
