2015 Challenge Match ResultsNovember 20th, 2015 posted by Ken Hafner
Team Captain John Gilliland reports that our Coronado team lost the home match of the 2015 Coronado / Sea ‘N Air Challenge Match 10 to 14. Bob Plumb and Dan Trowbridge won their home match 6-0 and the other three teams were not closed out until the 18th hole. Jim Powell had the low gross score (74) and tied for low net with Bob Plumb (70). Mike Maloney had an eagle after driving the green on #12.
The second match at Sea ‘N Air was won by Sea ‘N Air 18 to 6. Brian Smock – who holds the course record 64 at Sea ‘N Air – shot a 66 with an eagle on number 14 and a drive landing ten yards short of the green on number 18. Jim Powell shot even par and John Meyer had a net score of 68 but two Sea ‘N Air members had net scores in the mid to low 60’s and could not be overcome.
Rules of Golf Changes for 2016November 7th, 2015 posted by Ken Hafner
Every four years the USGA and the R&A publish the changes to the rules of golf. The changes will take place for this next four year period on January 1, 2016. Three of the significant changes are as follows:
1. Under Rule 18-2b, a player whose ball moved after address was automatically presumed to have caused the ball to move. In 2012, an Exception to that rule was introduced to cover situations where it was known or virtually certain that the player had not caused the ball to move. Rule 18-2b will be withdrawn effective 1/1/16 which means that there no longer will be any presumption that the player has caused the ball to move so that the same overall test in Rule 18-2 will apply to all actions by the player: if the facts show that the player’s addressing of the ball or other actions caused the ball to move, the player will incur a one-stroke penalty.
2. A new exception has been introduced to Rule 6-6d (Wrong Score for Hole) to provide that a player is not disqualified for returning a lower score for a hole than actually taken as a result of failing to include penalty strokes that the player did not know were incurred before returning the score card. Under the new exception, the player incurs the penalty under the Rule that was breached and must add an additional penalty of two strokes for the score care error. The rule still will provide that in all other cases where a player returns a score for any hole lower than actually taken, the penalty will continue to be disqualification.
3. As we all know by now, anchoring the putter while making a stroke is no longer permitted under new Rule 14-1b.
