Celebration of Life for Clem Lee

As many of you know, Coronado Men’s Club member, Clem Lee, passed in November 2018. 

Clem was born on January 29, 1935 in Arkansas.  He was raised in Corcoran, California with his 10 siblings and loving parents.  He spent his later years as a loving husband, father, grandfather, lover of golf, lifetime Detroit Tiger and Fresno State Bulldog enthusiast, and friend to all he met.  The world was a better place with The Clemster in it, and he will be lovingly missed by those he adored, and that had the honor of loving him.

There is going to be a Celebration of Life of Clem Lee at the Coronado Boathouse on Sunday, Jan 20, from 12:30 – 3:30 PM.  The Boathouse is located 1985 Strand Way, past the Coronado Community/Recreation Center at the south end of the Glorietta Bay Park.

Clem is survived by his best friend and wife of 40 years, Susan Lee, his 6 children, 13 grandchildren, and 9 great grandchildren.

Rules Corner

A men’s club player recently while playing the par 3 fifteenth hole hit the fence that protects golf balls from going into the tennis courts to the right of the hole with his tee shot. The player wanted to know if the shot could be replayed without penalty. The answer is that it can not be replayed without penalty.
Rule 19 deals with a ball in motion deflected or stopped. Rule 19-1 provides as follows:

19-1. By Outside Agency

If a player’s ball in motion is accidentally deflected or stopped by any outside agency, it is a rub of the green, there is no penalty and the ball must be played as it lies”

The Definition of an Outside Agency is as follows:

Outside Agency

“In match play, an “outside agency” is any agency other than either the player’s or opponent’s side, any caddie of either side, any ball played by either side at the hole being played or any equipment of either side.

In stroke play, an outside agency is any agency other than the competitor’s side, any caddie of the side, any ball played by the side at the hole being played or any equipment of the side.

An outside agency includes a referee, a marker, an observer and a forecaddie. Neither wind nor water is an outside agency.”

Bill Pultz, Rules Chairman
