General Banter / rules changes for 2013
« on: September 21, 2012, 10:42:06 AM »
FYI - these are significant and expect them to be ratified, not necessarily by vote


Definitions added: Approximate Position, Falling Putt, In-bounds, Position, Previous Lie, Re-throw,
Tee Line

Definitions removed: Completion of a Round, Fairway, Thrower, Two meter rule

Only one witness is required for a violation that results in a warning. Confirmation from a
second person is required for a violation that results in a penalty throw. If a throw is
subject to more than one violation, the one with the most severe penalty is applied. For example,
a throw from an illegal stance that goes OB is penalized for being OB. Ties are broken by
chronological order of the violations. For example, a throw that goes OB and then crosses
the wrong side of a mandatory is OB.

The 30-second clock (excessive time) now starts when you reach your disc, rather than after
you mark it, since a disc may not be marked. You can no longer stand over your disc holding
your mini for an indefinite amount of time.

Carrying an illegal disc is no longer punishable by itself. You have to throw it for there to
be a penalty. The same goes for an illegal device. You are allowed to use a towel or pad on
a lie. GPS devices are no longer disallowed.

"The thrown disc establishes a position where it first comes to rest." That is an important concept
which provides a basis for many other rules. Once a position has been established, it remains even if
the disc moves, no matter how that happens. The following rules are now related to establishing
position: disc above/below ground,  broken disc, and disc in water or foliage.

The disc on the playing surface is now the primary way to mark the lie. The use of a mini is
presented as an alternative.

The thrower cannot call or second a stance violation. That closes the self-called falling putt
loophole. You are now allowed to retrieve a disc after a stance violation (the excessive time
rule still applies of course). There is no longer a three-second limit on calling a stance
violation. All calls must be made promptly, as noted in "Application of the Rules".

A few exemptions have been added to the interference rules: interference to prevent injury
or to prevent (with the thrower's consent) a disc from becoming lost is allowed.

The two-meter rule has been moved to "Discretionary Rules".

"Playing from Another Player's Lie" is now an "Incorrect Lie" misplay, meaning there's just
one penalty throw instead of two. The player whose disc was moved handles it the same as the
disc being moved for any other reason, and replaces it to its approximate position.

The entire group must assist in the search for a lost disc. Whoever starts the clock has to
tell the group that it has started.

You can no longer throw back across a mandatory line after having made the mandatory.
There's no longer a default drop zone. If the Director has not designated a drop zone, go
to the previous lie.

A scorecard is late after 30 rather than 25 minutes.

General Banter / what a links style course is or hlinc
« on: July 15, 2012, 11:26:41 PM »
fyi: A links is the oldest style of golf course, first developed in Scotland. The word "links" comes via the Scots language from the Old English word hlinc : "rising ground, ridge"[1] and refers to an area of coastal sand dunes and sometimes to open parkland. It also retains this more general meaning in the Scottish English dialect. It can be treated as singular even though it has an "s" at the end and occurs in place names that precede the development of golf, for example Lundin Links, Fife.[2]
The land was unsuitable for building houses due to its sandy nature and equally unsuitable for farmland due to the salt content of the turf.
Links courses tend to be on, or at least very near to, a coast, and the term is typically associated with coastal courses, often amid dunes, with few water hazards and few if any trees. This reflects both the nature of the scenery where the sport happened to originate, and the fact that only limited resources were available to golf course architects at the time, and any earth moving had to be done by hand, so it was kept to a minimum. Even today, some links courses do not employ a greens staff, use only basic machinery such as hole cutters without boards to ensure that the hole is cut unevenly, and use grazing animals to keep the grass cropped.
Links courses remain most common in Ireland and also in Great Britain, especially in Scotland. The Open Championship is always played on links courses, and this is one of the main features which differentiates it from the three major championships held in the United States.
The style of play on a links golf course is considerably different from the style of play on other types of courses. The challenges of links golf fall into two categories: Firstly the nature of the courses themselves, which tend to be characterised by uneven fairways, thick rough and small deep bunkers known as "pot bunkers"; and secondly, due to their coastal location and lack of trees, many links courses are frequently windy. This affects the style of play required, favouring players who are able to play low accurate shots. As many links courses consist literally of an "outward" nine in one direction along the coast, and an "inward" nine which returns in the opposite direction, players often have to cope with opposite wind patterns in each half of their round.

General Banter / PDGA Board of Directors
« on: July 02, 2012, 09:55:44 AM »
I cast my vote today in the hope that Rick, Avery and Jack will finally allow golfers to compete with or without shoes at PDGA sanctioned tournaments. Not everyone owned slaves in the 18th century, so why should everyone wear shoes in this day and age? also if there is anyway to get a seniors discount on those exorbidant annual dues, that would be appreciated.
