MARQUIS SHIELD TEAM – Our team recorded a 3 – 1 (10½ - 7½ games) win over Carterton at Martinborough on Sunday 26th. Well done, guys. The team is tied in the Marquis Shield 11 points all with Eketahuna who they play this coming Sunday here at home. While we are off the pace in Workman Cup (Seniors) and Intermediate Cup, we are leading in the Sutherland Trophy in the Junior section just ahead of Martinborough and Eketahuna. Selector Club Captain has agonised over naming the team for Sunday with so much talent available, and thanks all the players who have made themselves available, especially at short notice.
The team is, Senior: Danny Pierey and Noel Coombe, Shaun Smith and Jason Smith, Intermediate: Nigel Pearson and Steve McHardy, Colin Wallace and Logan McHardy, Junior: Mark Thomson and Peter Johns, Todd McHardy and Lionel Toheriri.
I’m sure the guys would appreciate your support, head on out to cheer them along. Good luck!
PGA DECANTERS DATE CHANGE – Please note in your calendars
PGA Decanters which was set down for Saturday 17th September has been brought forward to Sunday 21st August at 12noon. Mixed pairs, combined stableford – arrange your own partner.
RULES – UNPLAYABLE BALL Rule 19.2 Relief options: There have been instances lately where there was confusion about the unplayable ball rule, in particular, when a ball lies under the bushy tree just off the left of #5 fairway. There may be relief under another rule (EG, burrowing animal), but that’s another ruling, see Rule 16, abnormal course conditions.
The player is the only person who can decide that their ball is unplayable, and this can be done anywhere on the golf course except when your ball lies in a penalty area. You have 3 relief options, in each case adding one penalty stroke. NOTE: Relief is taken from where the ball is, so if you are under a gnarly tree or bush and can’t get 2-club lengths lateral relief, you have to look at either stroke and distance (based on where the previous stroke was made), or back-on-the-line based on a reference line going straight back from the hole through the spot of the original ball.
There was a very good example of this rule on the 3rd round of the recent Women’s PGA Championships when In Gee Chun had to go back and take stroke and distance as she considered the other 2 options were not available to her.
Unplayable ball relief is available anywhere on the golf course, except in a penalty area
You have 3 options, each under penalty of one stroke –
- Play again from where you last played
- Drop back on the line keeping the point where the ball lay between you and the hole
- Drop within two club lengths of where the ball lay, no nearer the hole.
