September Rules Quiz

2021 Invitational Recap

Just wanted to recap the 2021 Invitational, “Salute to Frontline Workers”. Two days of fun and camaraderie. Thanks to the 100 ladies who participated.
Not only did we survive the delta variant uptick and smoke from many fires, but made new friends and reconnected with old.

Here’s the recap of what occurred:

Probably the biggest success was the $450 raised for the Brentwood Food Pantry. The ladies that are involved with this charity,
were so happy that we could raise this money. I have to say, it’s actually the shining light from our invitational. Be proud of that.

and Flight 3 played holes 6 – 8. The winners of each flight met on hole 9 and played one hole for horse race placement. It came down to a chip off.
From what it seemed 100 yards from the back of the green, D. Martin made the perfect chip. Been back there a lot Debbie?? 😁 It was a very exciting finish for all and congratulations to making it to the last hole.

Play Day Results – Aug 10, 2021

Hi Ladies-

It was a challenging day yesterday! Golf was one thing, but the math mind boggling. The game was 39, and for those who had never played it, a bit much to figure out. I took all scorecards home and ran a spreadsheet, from which my head is still spinning.
Carolyn Barnes joined for check in, lunch and figuring out the Optionals. It was great to see her again. She’s been traveling and getting ready for knee surgery. We also welcomed Joanne Leete, returning member from Texas, who played with us, but not part of the game.

We had 19 players, so 3 flights, 2 winners per flight.

1st Flight – Hcps to 23
1st/2nd – Debbie Martin and Julie Hanson tied with -4, each winning $11.10

2nd Flight – Hcps 24 – 31
1st – Deborah Veatch with -4 winning $15
2nd – Frances Shipilov with -5 (tie breaker with Cathy Fancey on back nine) winning $7.15

3rd Flight – Hcps 32-35
1st – Doris Bunnell with -2 winning $15
2nd – Sondi Schnee with -7 winning $7.15

Closest to the Pin paying $4.75 each
Hcp to 28
Hole 2 – Mary Watkins 22’10.25”
Hole 7 – Sandy Smith 49’6”
Hole 14 – Julie Hanson 13’6”
Hole 17 – Mary Watkins 11’8”

Hcp 29-36
Hole 2 – Deborah Veatch 26’6”
Hole 7 – Jeanne Zwemer 45’8”
Hole 14 – no entry
Hole 17 – Deborah Veatch 37’8”

There was a lone birdie (worth 5 points in our game!) and that was Julie Hanson on Hole 6.

Chip Ins – payout of $4.50
Amelia Lyons Hole 15
Sondi Schnee Hole 14
Julie Hanson Hole 6
Sherry Boyd Hole 11

Finding the Rules’ answers

Ladies:
As my computer imploded this weekend you are fortunate that I am currently unable to send out this month’s Rules quiz. Instead I am sending you some advice on finding answers to your Rules questions using the USGA rules app. At the bottom of this e mail I have added the link which you can use to download it to your phones or computers, totally without cost..

Advice:

When you open the app the first page that opens has a “search” bar at the top Searching for answers is only as good as the words you put in.
Make sure you use the correct terms.

Do not use:
Sand trap, it is a BUNKER.
Water hazard, is a PENALTY AREA.

Be as specific as possible, the more specific you are the quicker you will find the answer.

If your “ball moved by player on putting green”, type those words into the search engine. By adding “putting green” it makes the answer you want quicker to find.

If your ball moved in the fairway type in “ball moved in General area”

If your ball moved when you were removing loose impediments then type all that in the search engine, “ball moved when removing loose impediments.”

Since 2019 certain conditions have been grouped together under one term. Ground under repair, immovable obstructions, animal holes and temporary water are now all covered by the word “Abnormal course conditions”. So if you need an answer about ground under repair when you type in those words the answers will come up for Abnormal course conditions. Don’t panic, you are at the right place it is just that the terms have changed.

Where you drop your ball under a Rule is now called “the Relief Area.” If you have any questions about lifting, dropping and you type in “rough”, or “fairway”, the word “General area” will come up. Again, you are in the right place, the terms have just changed.

The more specific and accurately you describe your situation the easier it will be for you to find the answer.

Try it, you might like it and it is certainly quicker than using the actual Rules book that I’m sure you all carry in your golf bag! NOT.

https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules-hub/rules-of-golf-apps.html

I hope this helps you.
Hilary
