News & Notes

BERNIE'S PRO TIP - PROPER ALIGNMENT

1. Stand 4-5 feet away from the ball, directly behind it, and trace an imaginary line from the target back to the ball. It’s important that you stand behind the ball to see this line. Trying to do it while standing in the address position will create an optical illusion and almost always, result in poor alignment.

2. With the club still held up on the ball to target line, pick a spot about 6-12 inches in front of the ball along that line This can be a blade of grass or discoloration. It’s a lot easier to align to something close to you than 200 yards in the distance.

3. Step into the ball and align the club-face (the leading edge of the club) to that spot.

4. Now draw an imaginary line in your mind which is inside and parallel to the ball to target line (the one your club-face is now pointing on), that your body will align to.

5. Set your feet in position so they are square to this line and make sure your knees, hips and shoulders follow suit. If, like me, you flare your left foot out at address, make sure you turn your foot out after you’ve aligned your feet.

Now work on this – every time you practice! A good practice routine is to use alignment sticks or other clubs from your bag.  Remember - your feet and shoulder should not be pointing at the final target - your club face should point at the final target.

New Local Rule for 2018

Modification of Score Card Penalty

The Exception to Rule 6-6d is modified as follows:

Exception: If a competitor returns a score for any hole lower than actually taken due to failure to include one or more penalty strokes that, before returning his score card, he did not know he had incurred, he is not disqualified. In such circumstances, the competitor incurs the penalty prescribed by the applicable Rule, but there is no additional penalty for a breach of Rule 6-6d. This Exception does not apply when the applicable penalty is disqualification from the competition.

New Local Rule for 2017

ACCIDENTAL MOVEMENT OF A BALL ON THE PUTTING GREEN

When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment.

The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.

This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.

Note: If it is determined that a player’s ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location.  A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.
