High Season-A Little Late

High Season-A Little LateHangDong

Usually the Koreans and Japanese arrive late December to early January to play golf in the warmer climate of ChiangMai and often frequent the cheaper courses where they often play in groups of 6,something they could never do,or even think of doing in their home countries.

Anyway,this year just when it looked like there was going to be little or no “high season” golf they arrived in early February and off they go in their large groups playing 5-6 hours for 18 holes on a short course! It appears though that the invasion is relatively short lived as it is anticipated that by the end of February in to early March the mass exodus will occur and normality will return.

Can”t blame them, cheaper by far than their home countries ,weather much better and no silly rules on many of the golf courses. Can also be fun to join up with the smaller groups to find that golf is very much an international sport and language.

This is why I mow my own lawn.

Lee Trevino:

Why I Mow My Own Yard

(A true story; you got to love him.) 

 

One day, shortly after joining the PGA tour in 1965, Lee Trevino, a  professional 
golfer and married man, was at his home in Dallas, Texas, mowing his front lawn, as he always did. 

A lady driving by in a big, shiny Cadillac stopped in front of his house, lowered the window and asked, “Excuse me, do you speak English?”   

Lee responded,  “Yes Ma’am, I do.”   

The lady then asked, “What do you charge to do yard work?”  

Lee said, “Well, the woman in this house lets me sleep with her.”  

The lady hurriedly put the car into gear and sped off.

Changes in the rules of golf

Saturday, February 6th, 2016

 Changes in the rules of golf

The 2016 Rules of Golf changes have been revealed by the R&A and USGA, and include a number of alterations.

The 2016 Rules of Golf changes take effect on January 1st 2016, and come after a four-year review cycle and a collaborative effort between The R&A and the USGA. The new updates also come after CONGU announced plans to change the way handicaps are calculated, making it a busy few months for golf’s ruling bodies.

The most significant 2016 Rules of Golf changes include:

If your ball moves at address there is no longer an automatic penalty
Rule 18-2b (Ball Moving after Address) has been withdrawn. This means that if a ball at rest moves after you address it, you are no longer automatically deemed to have caused the ball to move. A one-stroke penalty under Rule 18-2 will still be applied only when the facts show that the player has caused the ball to move.

GM verdict: This is a great common sense move. If you’ve done nothing to cause your ball to move it seems unfair to be penalised.

No longer an automatic DQ for submitting an incorrect card
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 their card. Instead, the player incurs the penalty under the Rule that was breached and must add an additional penalty of two strokes for the scorecard error. In all other cases in which a player returns a score for any hole lower than actually taken, the penalty will continue to be disqualification.

David Rickman of the R&A explains why they changed the Rules of Golf

GM verdict: This has been introduced after a few high profile incidents of players signing score without knowing they’d incurred a penalty. Possibly one for the Tour pros!

Modification of penalty for use of artificial devices or equipment
The penalty for a player’s first breach of Rule 14-3 (Artificial Devices, Unusual Equipment and Abnormal Use of Equipment) during the round has been reduced from disqualification to loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play. The penalty for any subsequent breach of Rule 14-3 will continue to be disqualification.


Prohibition on anchoring
As announced in May 2013, the new Rule 14-1b (Anchoring the Club) prohibits anchoring the club either “directly” or by use of an “anchor point” in making a stroke. The penalty is loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play.

Discussing the changes, David Rickman, executive director Rules and Equipment Standards at The R&A, told GM: “We continually look at ways we can improve and clarify the Rules of Golf. The R&A and the USGA collaborate closely and we consult with our respective national and international advisory members to produce a code of Rules that is relevant to all golfers around the world.”

Printed copies of the new Rules of Golf are now available from the USGA and The R&A. More detailed information on the 2016 Rules of Golf changes and the complete Rules of Golf can also be found at randa.org.
