Rules Corner: USGA and the R&A Adopt New Video Review Rules

The USGA and the R&A have unanimously agreed to adopt a new set of protocols for video review when applying the Rules of Golf. 

The group, consisting of the PGA TOUR, LPGA, PGA European Tour, Ladies European Tour and the PGA of America, as well as the governing bodies, will implement the following measures from January 1, 2018:  

    1. Assign one or more officials to monitor the video broadcast of a competition to help identify and resolve Rules issues as they arise.

     2. Discontinue any steps to facilitate or consider viewer call-ins as part of the Rules decision process. 

In addition, the USGA and R&A have approved the adoption of a Local Rule, available from January 1, 2018, to eliminate the additional two-stroke penalty for failing to include a penalty on the score card when the player was unaware of the penalty. All of the organizations represented on the working group will introduce the Local Rule for 2018, and the score card penalty will be permanently removed when the modernized Rules of Golf take effect on January 1. 2019. 

Bill Pultz, CMG Rules Chairman

Men’s Club Wins “The Coronado Cup” for 2017!

The 2017 Coronado Cup Matches took place December 2-3, pitting 12 of CMGC’s finest against Brian Smock’s Golf Shop Team. The 2 days in Ryder Cup-like match play format proved to be a “nail bitter”! In the end the CMGC prevailed over the Golf Shop by a very narrow margin.

On Day 1 the format was “Four-ball” play (a.k.a. known as “better ball of partners”), and at the conclusion of play the CMGC Team held the lead, winning 4 of the 6 points available.

During Sunday’s singles matches the Golf Shop was able to capture the majority of the points, claiming 6 ½ points (out of 12), but it wasn’t enough to capture the win. CMGC prevailed over the Golf Shop, 9 ½ to 8 ½ !

There was great golf played by both sides during this competition, but  unforeseen outcomes the event created were the real sense of comradery among the Men’s Club and the Pro Shop and the relationships that were forged during the event.

Many sincere thanks to Brian Smock and his stellar staff for hosting such great event!!
