Golf Rules Quiz

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

Modernizing Golf's Rules: Major Proposed Changes

Proposed Rule: Players would continue to drop a ball when taking relief, but the dropping procedure would be changed in several ways as detailed in Rule 14.3.
The focus of the dropping procedure would be on a specific “relief area” set by the Rule under which relief is being taken and would be either 20 inches or 80 inches from a reference point or reference line (and may have certain other limitations).
Reasons for Change:
The new procedure avoids giving players more relief than necessary:

  • A dropped ball is currently allowed to roll up to 2 club-lengths from where it hits the ground – so that, for example, it can end up being played up to 3 club-lengths from the nearest point of relief from a cart path or ground under repair, or up to 4 club- lengths from where the original ball went into a lateral water hazard or where it was unplayable.
  • Requiring the dropped ball to come to rest in and be played from the same relief area where it was dropped would make it much more likely that the ball will be played from close to where it originally came to rest.

The new procedure would make it simpler for players to know where and how to drop a ball:

  • For example, many times today a player is required to drop a ball as near as possible to a certain spot (such as where the previous stroke was made or where a ball was embedded) and questions can arise about whether it was dropped near enough to that spot.
  • The new procedure when dropping with reference to a spot would be to drop a ball anywhere in a relief area measured 20 inches from (but not nearer the hole than) that spot.

Say What?

Oldie but Goodie

How men and women record things in their diaries.

             Wife's Diary:- 
  Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner.
I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it.
Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much.

  I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing.'
I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset.
He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it.

  On the way home, I told him that I loved him.
He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior. I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.'

  When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent.
Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep; I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

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

That's good When you want to let an opponent know that you are conceding a putt you say, "That's good."

Thin, hit it To hit the ball in the centre with the club's leading edge, instead of sliding under it. Chances are your shot will fly lower and farther than you intended. This is still much better than hitting it fat.

Three! - What many golfers, through habit, cry instead of Fore!
Three-jack Three putts on a single green. Very bad, indeed.

Throw-Up range Any putt that's short enough so a good player should make it, but long enough so that he's nervous about missing it, is in throw-up range. Players don't really throw up over these putts, they just miss them. (See also yips and knee-knocker.^)

Tight If there is very little cushion (grass) between the ball and God's earth, you have a tight lie. If the guys in your group don't want to play for some cash, they're tight.

Tight Lie - Poor playing position in which the ball is lying low in the grass or sitting on a bald or bare spot. Also known as a "close lie" or, more commonly, as an "original lie," "preliminary lie," "previous lie" or "former lie."

The Beer Talking

Drunk Husband
 A wife was in bed with her lover when she heard her husband's key in the door. "Stay where you are," she said. "He's so drunk he won't even notice you're in bed with me." 
Sure enough, the husband lurched into bed none the wiser, but a few minutes later, through a drunken haze, he saw six feet sticking out at the end of the bed. He turned to his wife: 
"Hey, there are six feet in this bed. There should only be four. What's going on?" "Nonsense," said the wife. "You're so drunk you miscounted. Get out of bed and try again. You can see better from over there." 
The husband climbed out of bed and counted. "One, two, three, four. Honey you're right as always."
