2015 Senior Club Championship NewsJune 16th, 2015 posted by Ken Hafner
JOHN HOFFMAN WINS THE SENIOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP AGAIN! John rallied from 4 shots back after Saturday’s round to best Jim Garvey and Jim Powell by one stroke to take the title once again. Congratulations John!
The Super-Senior winner for 2015 is John Gilliland with a two-day net score of 128. John posted the lowest net score of anyone in the tournament. Gene Kemp claims the Octogenarian title with a two-day net score of 139. Congratulations to John and Gene!
Side note: On the first day, the foursome of Rod Ritchie, Dick Reynolds, Don Bickley and John Meyer had four natural birdies on the par three 11th hole. Don pitched in from off the green … followed by Dick’s 45 foot putt … then Rod’s 35 foot putt …. and finally, John’s 2 foot putt. Good work, guys!
“Know the Rules” for June 2015 – Subject: Rule 28June 10th, 2015 posted by Ken Hafner
An unusual situation occurred during our May tournament. Todd Gustfason playing the 10th hole skulled his approach shot over the green. The ball went over the 11th tee and under the fence next to the cart path. Both the fence and the cart path interfered with his stance and swing. What were his options? Rule 24 allows for relief from an immovable obstruction. The club’s local rules deem all fences on the course to be integral parts of the course. Therefore they are not obstructions so the player is not entitled to relief from the fence. The player could obtain relief from the cart path provided the exceptions to Rule 24 don’t apply. If either exception applied the player would be required to apply one of the options to Rule 28 the unplayable ball rule with a one stroke penalty. As it turned out the event was a four ball event and Todd’s partner made par on the hole so no damage done! Thanks Todd for your unusual rules question.
Hope this helps.
Rules Chairman, Bill Pultz
