 2017 (Zone) Replacement Tournament
Due to the lack of sign-ups for the annual NCGA Zone Qualifier that would not generate enough money to advance a team to the next level of competition we were forced changed the days venue. We instead put on a cash prize 18 hole tournament that was three fold. Front nine was alternate shot format for each 2 man team. Back nine was Two-Man 1 best ball format.The Group also played a skins game.

We had 14 players (7-2 man teams)

 First place – Tom Baird / Rick Faller –
Low net 61 (won in tie breaker)

Golf Rules Quiz

New to this newsletter
we will be featuring the new NCGA rule changes for 2017

Proposed Rule: Under new Rule 14.2c, in that same situation:

The ball would always be placed on a spot rather than being dropped.

If the exact original spot is not known, the player would be required to replace the ball on its estimated spot (including on, under or against any attached natural objects that the ball had been at rest on, under or against).

Reasons for Change:

A fundamental principle of golf is to play the ball as it lies; so this should mean that, when a ball at rest is moved, it should be returned to and played from its original spot or as close to that original spot as possible.

When a player marks the ball’s spot with a ball-marker before lifting the ball, the original spot is known and the ball is replaced on the marked spot.

But when a ball is accidentally moved, the player may not know the exact original spot:

  • Currently, if the ball was at rest anywhere off the putting green, the player must drop the ball as near as possible to its estimated spot and play the ball from where it comes to rest (unless it rolls to where it must be re-dropped under Rule 20-2c).
  • This means that the ball will often not be played from the estimated spot, as the dropped ball is allowed to roll as much as two-club lengths away from that spot.
  • It also means that the ball may end up being played from a better or worse lie than the original lie (such as when the original spot was in the rough and the dropped ball comes to rest in the fairway, or vice versa; or when the ball had been at rest in deep grass and the dropped ball comes to rest on top of the grass).

Requiring the player to replace the ball on the estimated spot (including being required to replace the ball on, under or against any fixed or growing things it had been at rest on, under or against) would help make sure the ball is played from as close as possible to its original spot and from the same or almost the same lie.

Replacing the ball on its estimated spot also applies when the player does not know the exact original spot of a ball that was lifted or moved on the putting green, and so the same procedure would apply throughout the course.

Say What?

She's single 

She's shapely 

She's beautiful and she lives right across the street.

 I can see her place from my kitchen window. 

I watched as she got home from work this evening.

 I was surprised when she walked across the street, up my driveway and knocked on the door.

 I opened the door, she looked at me and said, "I just got home, and I have this strong urge to have a good time, dance, get drunk, and have sex tonight. Are you doing anything?”

 I quickly replied, "Nope, I'm free!”

 "Great," she said. "Can you watch my dog?”

 Being a senior citizen isn't always like I planned.

The lighter side 
Brought to you by

Do you know the meaning of these golf terms or definitions?

Take-away - The initial part of the backswing. The name derives from the fact that a properly executed, ground-scraping, slow, backward sweep of the club with the clubhead pressed firmly onto the ground will "take away" most impediments interfering with the lie.

Take it deep - To shoot a very low score. (See also shooting the lights out)

Talk to it - Golfers are always issuing pleas or instructions to their ball. "Get up!" "Get down!" "Sit." "Bite." It's fun, and there's no rule against it, so go ahead and talk to it.
Tap in A short, easy putt that anyone can make. (See also gimme)

Tap-in - A putt short enough to miss one-handed.

Target Line - An imaginary line from a player's lie to the target which the ball would follow if an imaginary golfer hit it.

Tee - Small wooden peg on which the ball is placed for a drive from the teeing ground. The condition of the tee after the tee shot provides an indication of whether or not the ball was hit correctly. If the tee flips backwards and lands in one piece a few inches behind the place where it was inserted into the grass, the ball was probably hit well. If, on the other hand, the tee breaks into three or more pieces, is driven deeper than two inches into the ground, travels farther than the ball or catches fire, it probably wasn't.

The Beer Talking

Neat repeat

Eleven Minutes Can Be Forever

 A Police Officer was patrolling late at night off the main highway.
 At nearly midnight, he sees a couple in a car, in Lovers' Lane, with the interior
 light brightly glowing. He carefully approaches the car to get a closer look. Then he sees a young man
 behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine. 

   He immediately notices a young woman in the rear seat, filing her fingernails.
 Puzzled by this surprising situation, the Officer walks to the car and gently raps on the driver's window. 

   The young man lowers his window. "Uh, yes, Officer?" 

   The trooper asks: "What are you doing?" 

   The young man says: "Well, Officer, I'm reading a magazine." 

   Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat the Officer says: "And, her, what is she doing?" 

   The young man shrugs: "Sir, I believe she's filing her fingernails." 

   Now, the trooper is totally confused. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in Lover's Lane and nothing obscene is happening! 

   The trooper asks: "What's your age, young man?" 

   The young man says: "I'm 22, sir." 

   The trooper asks: "And her, what's her age?" 

   The young man looks at his watch and replies: "She'll be 18 in 11 minutes."
