Nick Wheeler showed how it can be done by easily winning Saturday's Monthly Medal with a fabulous 66 nett on a day where only two players from a filed of 66 players played better than their handicap. His great play was exemplified with a nearest the pin on the difficult 13th hole. 2017 Club Champion and runner up the last three years, Joshua Tracey, played some exceptional golf to have a 69 nett -a score which included 6 birdies (68 off the stick)-to win the A Grade competition. Rod Wilton also played very well to finish second with his 70 nett score with vet Peter Conroy third with an excellent 70 nett. Jordan Wilkinson won B Grade with his 70 nett, just ahead of John Burgess and Peter McKenzie. Andrew Keogh's 70 nett score was good enough to win C Grade with Steve Primmer and Ian Taylor filling the minor placings. The shot of the day belonged to Reece Caldwell on the 2nd, finishing only 48 cms away. A 74 nett score was needed to win a ball on a day when the tees were well back and the rough continues to be punishing. Club Captain Steve Ross wants to remind members that a 4 - Ambrose sponsors day is scheduled for the 27th March.
Playing the wrong ball Rule 6.3 C
In Stroke Play, the player must correct the mistake by continuing play with the original ball-the stroke played with the wrong ball and any more strokes before the mistake is corrected (including strokes made and any penalty strokes made and any penalty strokes solely from playing that ball) do not count. If the player does not correct the mistake before making a stroke to begin another hole or, for the final hole of the round, before returning his or her scorecard, the player is disqualified.
Slow Play tips
Mark you card after you've played your tee shot or while someone else is playing their tee shot on the next hole - at no other time mark your card on the green or before playing tee shot if no one is playing. Be conscious of your place on the course and keeping up with play.
