From the Short Grass for the Weekend before Halloween
Ron eubel is our senior player of the yearOctober 27, 2018 

Eubel's strong play in the US Senior Open Sectional, Qualifying for the US Senior Amateur, a top finish in the Ohio Senior Amateur as well as his tie for fourth in the Senior Metropolitan, allowed Ron Eubel to finish on top of our Senior Play of the Year Point race for the 2018 season.  

This is Ron's first Player of the Year honor although he did win the Metropolitan Championship in 2003 at Greene CC.  

Congratulations Ron!


Under Rule 7.4, if a player accidentally moves his or her ball while searching for it:

The player will get no penalty for causing it to move, and the ball will always be replaced; if the exact spot is not known, the player will replace the ball on the estimated original spot (including on, under or against any attached natural or man-made objects which the ball had been at rest under or against).

Reasons for Change:

A fundamental principle of golf is to play the ball as it lies; so the Rules should help the player to find his or her ball and play it from the spot where it was at rest.

  • Players often need to probe in grass, bushes, leaves and other conditions to look for a hidden ball, and such reasonable acts create an inherent risk of moving the ball.
  • The current Rules allow both an opponent in match play, and other players in stroke play, to help search for the player’s ball without risk of penalty if they accidentally move the player’s ball; outside persons such as spectators are allowed to help search as well.
  • It is inconsistent to encourage everyone but the player or his or her caddie (or partner) to look for the ball, and this creates an odd incentive for the player to hold back and let others search.
