Captains News

A reminder that there is a meeting for Match Committee this week. Please contact one of the committee members if you have any thing to be raised.

Thanks to Greg and the committee for keeping things on track in my absence.

The last two rounds of Men's Pennants are being held this weekend at Humpty Doo and Darwin. With some favourable results both sides could still make the final. Good luck to everyone playing this weekend

As always,

Happy Golfing,

Axel

Golf Rules

Several players witness a magpie goose pick up one of the players' ball lying on the fairway, flying away with it and then dropping it on the green. The player can putt the ball now it's on the green.? FALSE The ball has been moved by an outside agency and must be replaced as near as possible as to where it was on the fairway before the bird picked it up. There is no penalty.

If you wish to improve your rules knowledge, these questions and many, many more are available online at the Royal and Ancient website (also available as an app for smartphones). Click on the R&A logo to access the R&A webpage and rules quiz. Rule Books and quick guides are freely available at the clubhouse and should be carried when playing.

Did you know?

Caddyshack. "Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion.”
A cult classic, "Caddyshack” delivers one memorable movie line after another. But few are quoted as often as greenskeeper Carl Spackler's Masters reference, as he imagines winning the tournament, while swinging away at flowers with a garden tool. Incredibly, the entire scene was ad-libbed by comedic legend Bill Murray.

Golf Quips

'A golf ball is like a clock. Always hit it at 6 o'clock and make it go toward 12 o'clock. Just be sure you're in the same time zone'.
