Whisky Run Rules They be a' Changing!

Having had the esteem pleasure of facilitating several Rules of Golf Workshops while serving on the Education Committee of the PGA of Ontario I can say with almost a straight face how much fun I had. If anyone suffers from insomnia just pick up a copy of The Rules of Golf and start reading you will be asleep before you leave the Table of Contents. However, the long-awaited changes to the Rules will be here starting January 1st, 2019. There will be many a golf enthusiast not only ringing in the new year on December 31st but will be eagerly awaiting the stroke of midnight to usher in the long overdue changes to Rules of Golf.

Some of the more noticeable changes are; as stolen from a Golf World publication as of March 13/2018 written by Joel Beall.

The number of rules has considerably shrunk

In order to streamline and simplify the sport's regulations, there are now 24 rules, down from 34.

There were tweaks from the initial modernized proposal that was released in 2017

Four, to be exact. After the first draft was submitted to the public, the governing bodies took feedback from the golf community. The alterations are a response to what they heard.

One change is designed specifically for the recreational golfer

Regarding out of bounds or a lost ball. Instead of stroke and distance, a new local rule allows the option of dropping a ball in the vicinity of where the original was lost or out of bounds, including the nearest fairway area, with a two-stroke penalty. Basically, if you blow your first drive into the woods, you no longer have to hit your third from the tee box. Instead, you can play your fourth from the fairway—basically, the best-case scenario (save for a hole-in-three) with your third shot. This was done to help pace of pace.
This rule will not be in play at the professional level, or other elite competitions.

Another tweak: The height of your drop

Although the initial proposal had a player taking a drop from any length above two inches from the ground, the new rule stipulates drop be taken from knee height, still a significant change from the current shoulder level.

There's also no longer a penalty for a double-chip

Somewhere, T.C. Chen is smiling. Golfers will now just count the hit as one stroke.

Club-length, not inches, will be the measurement for relief

One of the March 2017 proposals called for either a 20-inch or 80-inch standard, but golfers responded by saying "How are we going to actually measure that?" The governing bodies agreed, going back to club lengths instead.

Aside from the tweaks, other proposals in the first draft from March 2017 will be implemented

These touch on six main areas: ball-moved penalties, relaxed putting-green rules, relaxed rules for water hazards, pace of play, player integrity and rules in the bunker.

The big takeaways from this are:

No more penalty for accidentally moving a ball on the green

You are still penalized, however, if it is "virtually certain" you caused it to move on purpose.

You can putt with the flagstick in

Not only has the penalty for putting to an unattended flag been eliminated, you can go at it without having it removed at all.

You can repair all the damn spike marks your heart desires

As well as repair animal or other damage on the green.

Another penalty removed: touching the line of the putt

However, caddies are not allowed to stand behind or serve as an extension of the line.

You can now move impediments in bunkers and water hazards

There's also no penalty for touching the ground or water in a penalty area. In the sand, however, you cannot ground the club right next to the ball.
However, if you're "generally" touching the sand with the club, that's OK.

An extra relief option has been added for an unplayable ball in a bunker

Yep, more good news for those that struggle in the sand. You can play the ball to be outside the sand with a two-stroke penalty.

The Rules also give your integrity some latitude

A player is given "reasonable judgement" when estimating or measuring a spot, point, line, area or distance. Your placement will be upheld, even if video evidence later shows it wasn't in the exact right spot.

You also are no longer required to announce when you are lifting a ball to identify or see if it's damaged

The new Rules are really trusting you on this, buddy. Don't blow their faith in you.

You're no longer allowed five minutes to look for a lost ball

Your search party now has three minutes. Let's be honest, you weren't going to find it in five, anyway.

And a player can take no more than 40 seconds to play a stroke

A change made to help speed of pace of play, although admittedly this one could be a tad hard to enforce at the amateur ranks.

There will be a short quiz some Wednesday night, so study hard.

Greyson’s Golf Fore the Heart Charity Fundraiser

Play in Greyson’s Golf FORE the Heart – Charity Fundraiser

Last year’s inaugural tournament was such an incredible success! Not only did our family and friends and our community come together to raise almost DOUBLE our original goal of $10,000, we were also able to raise awareness about Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) and the number of families in need of support.

 

Greyson’s journey is one of the countless success stories at SickKids.
“Not only are you helping to provide a place for children with CHD to receive an initial life saving surgery, your donation also helps to secure a lifetime of support for that child and their family.”

 

Since Greyson’s open heart surgery performed a week before his 1st birthday, he has had two heart catherizations to help decrease the pressure in and around his heart. The incredible doctors at SickKids have managed to reduce it from 80% (normal being 25-30%) down to 40% systemic pressure! Not only does this help alleviate the strain on his heart, it also allows him to run and jump and play like any other 2 year old boy!

 

The care that Greyson has received prior to and following his initial surgery has been first class! And it wouldn’t be possible without the funds that the Labatt Family Heart Centre receives from events such as Greyson’s Golf Fore the Heart Charity Fundraiser!

 

Every dollar counts! Please help us reach our goal of $15,000 by participating in our 2nd Annual event or by donating online in honour of Greyson.

 

Thank you for your love and support,
Kevin, Jessica, Greyson & Willa Dobbs
