Midville Golf Club host of the OSWGA TEAM EVENT on September 10 Opens August 26 & Closes September 2

2014 Pairings/Results Midville

This is a 9 hole course but we are playing 18 holes- 9 holes 2-BB and 9 holes step-aside. You are going to play all of the “front” 9 holes 2-BB first. This means if you start on hole # 3-you will go to the OSWGA markers 3,4,5,6,7,8,9, then 1 & 2 playing a 2 BB for all 9 holes. THEN once completing these 9 holes-you will then arrive at hole # 3 again-your starting point. DO NOT PLAY FROM THIS MARKER! You are now playing your back nine.  Go to the OSWGA marker # 12. (because you started on hole #3. {3 + 9 = 12}. If you start on #2 your back 9 will begin at hole # 11,{2 + 9= 11} if you start on #4, your back nine will begin on hole # 13, {4 + 9=13}etc, etc.) Continue to all the back 9 markers completing your back nine in the step-aside portion. Just remember to play your 1st 9 holes, BB portion, from all the single digit tee signs and THEN your back 9 holes, step-aside, will all be from the double digit tee signs.

Failure to complete the tournament as described will result in your team being disqualified. Please ask if you don’t understand.

On the step aside portion-it is a modified scramble. All 4 players will tee off-you will then decide which drive to use, say for example this team on the sample card uses Joanne’s drive on hole # 10, she must step aside and cannot hit the next shot. This continues all the way til you hole out. You will still be stepping aside when putting. If one player putts to within 2 feet, she must step aside and the other 3 players will attempt the 2 footer. Any questions or confusion please ask prior to play.

Kudos to Elaine Crawford for looking at the sample card below and finding an error! Hole # 3, Gross 7 is correct but Donna got 2 strokes so their net should be 4 not 5. In this case, hopefully the scoring committee would catch the error and correct it. Thanks Elaine!

Fenner Hill Golf Club host of the OSWGA MIXED EVENT on September 3 Opens August 19 & Closes August 26

Congratulations to the overall winners Nancy Diemoz, Cissy Grady, Ted Bouchard & Mike Rogers!

 

2014 Fenner Hill Pairings/Results

There will be a drop zone on hole #18 for  A-Division  ONLY.  It will be announced at the tournament. After attempting to hit across the hazard for A Division, those who go into the hazard may proceed to the other side. You will find 2 markers marked “Drop Zone”.  There will not be a line or circle. You may drop-not place-your ball within 2 club lengths behind the the imaginary line created by the foremost part of the markers.

See below NOTE: When using a dropping zone……………regarding your drop.

“If a ball is in or it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is in the water hazard (Hole #18), the player may:
(i) proceed under Rule 26; or
(ii) as an additional option, drop a ball, under penalty of one stroke, in the Dropping Zone.

Note: When using a Dropping Zone the following provisions apply regarding the dropping and re-dropping of the ball:

(a) The player does not have to stand within the Dropping Zone when dropping the ball.
(b) The dropped ball must first strike a part of the course within the Dropping Zone.
(c) If the Dropping Zone is defined by a line, the line is within the Dropping Zone.
(d) The dropped ball does not have to come to rest within the Dropping Zone.
(e) The dropped ball must be re-dropped if it rolls and comes to rest in a position covered by Rule 20-2c(i-vi).
(f) The dropped ball may roll nearer the hole than the spot where it first struck a part of the course, provided it comes to rest within two club-lengths of that spot and not into any of the positions covered by (e).
(g) Subject to the provisions of (e) and (f), the dropped ball may roll and come to rest nearer the hole than:
• its original position or estimated position (see Rule 20-2b);
• the nearest point of relief or maximum available relief (Rule 24-2, 24-3, 25-1 or 25-3); or
• the point where the original ball last crossed the margin of the water hazard or lateral water hazard (Rule 26-1).

Junior member Katie Um has a great showing in her first Junior Amateur………

Congratulations to Katie for making it to the finals in the Junior Amateur.

Losing 1 up after being 3 down at one point,  Katie, who has only been playing golf for one and one half years should be as proud of herself as we are! We are looking forward to reading her name for years to come. Read the complete story described as a “battle” by clicking here.

Congratulations to junior OSWGA member, Katie Um-posting the low score in the girls division of the 93rd Junior Amateur being held at Metacomet Country Club. That earned her a bye in the first round of the match play portion . Nice job Katie!
