From the Shortgrass for the 3rd Weekend in October
POST scores THROUGH NOVEMBEROctober 20, 2018 

Just a reminder that our score posting season runs through the end of November and starts up again on March 15th.  

I hope we are all thinking there are a few weeks of Indian Summer left to come.   

RULES CHANGE - no more penalty for a double hit

Under Rule 10.1a, if the player’s club accidentally hits the ball more than once during a single stroke, there will be no penalty and the ball will be played as it lies. 

Reasons for Change:

Where a double hit occurs as part of a single stroke and was not the intention of the player, it was felt unfair and unnecessary for the player to be penalized.

Just as there is no penalty if a player’s ball accidentally deflects off his or her body, equipment or caddie, there is no need for a penalty when a player accidentally strikes his or her own ball in making a stroke.

We often don't report on National Championships because we try and keep a more local feel for our weekly email but when I read about the 51 year old champion having her 78 year old father on the bag, well, let's just say it's a story worth sharing and is one of those great stories about why our game is so special.
