  1. Playing with a partner precludes a score from being a qualifier. But your results must be reported to your home club if the comp was not at your course. New rule by England Golf since start of 2017.
  2. Whoops !!!

    15-2 is about a Substituted Ball 15-3 is about a Wrong Ball
  3. Of course it is not proposed that handicaps are adjusted directly from these returns. They are only to be used as supporting (or otherwise) information at Annual Review time. Not really different from results in internal competitions where the handicap committee have much 'local knowledge'. Note that matchplay is specifically excluded, with good reason.
  4. Thoughts on rule proposals

    1) Has been debated for years. The RBs don't like the idea so it will never happen. But no one has yet managed to define exactly what a divot hole is. 2) Similar to above. What is a footprint (as opposed to poor raking say)?
  5. Provisional Ball & Pace of Play

    You can do the latter but not the former. The ball becomes lost if it is not found within 5 minutes or any of the other actions in the definition has taken place. It cannot be made lost bey declaration.
  6. Affiliated Clubs have the discretion under Clauses 23 and 24 of the UHS to deal with a player who persistently submits incomplete cards or makes ‘no returns’..
  7. 9 hole comps

    Yes the regulation changed Jan 2016. Any 9 holes of an 18 hole course can be rated. It's only a paper excercise by England Golf
  8. 9 hole comps

    You divide the SIs for that 9 by 2. For example, in the nine holes to be played the stroke indices in hole-number sequence are as follows: Hole No. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 SI from the 18- hole scorecard 14 10 4 16 2 8 6 12 18 SI for the nine hole scorecard 7 5 2 8 1 4 3 6 9
  9. 9 hole comps

    Just curious. How many knew that prior to 2016, the handicap of cat 1 players was not adjusted after playing in a 9 hole comp, whatever their score?
  10. TheLyth I guess it was about the time that a some clubs in north east Leeds had an 'arrangement' barring a couple of players from a 'certain' club because of their winning all the open 4BBBs without ever seeing a handicap reduction over about 4 years. But this is not about handicap adjustment as a direct result of competition but to supplement the information available to the hcap sec relating to his own players' general performance at his club. It is just another piece of information to be used at annual review. I see it being used when qualifying scores don't provide a full picture. The scores being returned are of course the total for the team. No information about hole scores or number of holes where a contribution was made is recorded or reported.
  11. Thoughts on rule proposals

    Apart from the individual rule changes, it's the language, style and format I like. The players' guide seems like a good idea.
  12. Ladies nine hole competitions

    There is no limit
  13. Markers responsibility

    Markers are not referees, so cannot make decisions. If the marker does not agree with the player's score he should not sign the card until the committee have made a decision. Nor should the player should not try and return his card. If the player returns his card unsigned without reference to the committee he is DQd. If the marker refuses to sign the card Decision 6-6a/4 applies 6-6a/4 Marker Refuses to Sign Competitor's Card After Dispute Resolved in Favour of Competitor Q.In stroke play, B, who was A's fellow-competitor and marker, refused to sign A's score card on the grounds that A had played outside the teeing ground at the 15th hole. A claimed that he played from within the teeing ground. The Committee decided in favor of A. Despite the Committee's decision, B continued to refuse to sign A's card. Should B be penalized? A.No. A marker is not obliged to sign a card he believes to be incorrect, notwithstanding the determination of the Committee. However, the marker must report the facts and authenticate those scores which he considers correct. The Committee should accept certification of A's score at the 15th hole by anyone else who witnessed the play of the hole. If no witness is available, the Committee should accept A's score without certification.
  14. Finally the USGA and R&A see sense!!

    This is more accurate and informative
  15. Flag on the green!!

    No. That's been around since the last century
