Golf at its Finest ...
And "FINEST" is what the condition of the course is. The greens are fast but hold, the fairways are manicured and the rough is really rough. Just like on tv, but we get to play it!
A BIG thanks to Phil Waite and his crew for making MCC look and play the best ever!
If you are going to play this game, you've gotta know the rules! Here are a few notable ones:
- A golfer will be allowed to lift a ball for identification in a bunker or water hazard. However, there will be a two-stroke penalty for playing a wrong ball from a hazard. In match play, the penalty will be loss of hole.
- Q. A player asks his opponent or fellow-competitor the distance from one object (e.g. his ball or the teeing ground) to another object (e.g. the putting green, a water hazard, or a bunker). Is he considered to be asking for advice and in breach of Rule 8-1?
A. The distance between any objects is considered to be a matter of public information and therefore not advice. As this information is not advice, it may be exchanged without restriction. (Definition of "Advice" and Decision 8-1/2)
Q. Clyde`s ball lies 10 feet from the hole, but in a bunker. Lew`s ball lies 15 feet from the hole on the putting green. Who must play first?
A. The ball farther from the hole must be played first, regardless of the location of the ball. Lew must play first from the putting green before Clyde plays from the bunker. (Rules 10-1b and 10-2b)
- Q. During the stipulated round, is it permissible to practice putting or chipping between the play of two holes?
A. Yes. Between the play of two holes, the player may practice putting or chipping on or near the putting green of the hole last played, any practice putting green or the teeing ground of the next hole to be played in the round, provided such practice is not from a hazard (water hazard or bunker) and does not unduly delay play. (Rule 7-2) However, be careful, sometimes the Committee may prohibit this practice as a Condition of the Competition (Note 2 to Rule 7-2).
