I hope this finds you well after a good weekends golfing, Jane and I are still being inundated with well wishes after a fantastic wedding weekend, for which we thank you all very much. A lot of people have been asking when we are going on honeymoon, we are heading to America in January and flying into New York. We will be spending a few days there before travelling down the east coast and flying back from Miami. We have got our flights booked, but need to fill in the blanks with places such as Washington, Savannah and Key West high on the agenda.
You are deemed to have addressed the ball when your club touches the ground behind the ball, now if you do this and the ball moves, you will not longer be penalised. This makes perfect sense to me because you should not be penalised for something that is not your fault.
'Provided a player is not disqualified for returning a lower score for a hole than actually taken as a result of failing to include penalty strokes that the player did not know were incurred before returning the score card.' So, if you didn't add a penalty shot that you should have, you will not get disqualified. You will only get disqualified if you knew about the penalty and then wrote a lower score down than you scored and a two shot penalty will in incurred for an incorrect scorecard... simples! This is probably more one for the tour pro's after players incurring penalties without knowing... a lot of these incidents have been reported by people watching at home and with the help of slow motion cameras. Padraig Harrington was disqualified in an event a couple of years ago after a ball moved on a green and he did not replace it.
4. Anchoring the club whilst making a stoke is now prohibited.
The big one and the one that has caused the most controversy! This rule now states that you must not allow the club to be directly or indirectly anchored to your body. This does not mean that belly and long putters are prohibited, you can use them, but they must not be anchored to you in any way. This has caused some controversy amongst players who are suggesting that this rule will lead to a loss of earnings for them and therefore are contemplating legal action. In recent years Adam Scott, Keegan Bradley and Ernie Els have all won majors with their extended putters.
