What a great final 35 holes it was for Hideki as he catapulted to the lead late on Saturday after the rain delay and played steady golf all day and with a triple for Xander on #16. His first triple in over 1000 holes, opened the door for Hideki to hold on to a 1 stroke victory over rookie sensation Will Zalatoris who faltered a bit early today but was able to bounce back for a very respectful day. What you guys may not know is that a certain LFG guy, lets call him Josh for the sake of the story hit on a nice Hideki ticket at about +2800. Well done sir.
The LFG Rules Committee have decided to make the following rule changes for the upcoming 2021 season.
Out Of Bounds/Hazard White Staked Area: 2 strokes, Relief at point of entry extended to the fairway (Does have option to hit from original spot for 1 stroke penalty, please do your best to never have to walk back to a spot to hit) Click on link for video explanation https://youtu.be/QY2QNyFaqNs
Red Staked Area: Drop at point of entry, 2 club lengths, 1 stroke penalty
Non Staked Area: If ball is found and can be played, play it. If found and can not be played play as a red stake, If ball is NOT FOUND must be played as a LOST BALL which is a 2 stroke penalty and relief extends to fairway. **PLEASE MARK YOUR BALLS OR AT LEAST LET PLAYING PARTNERS KNOW WHAT BALL YOU ARE PLAYING AS BEST YOU CAN***
We understand this is quite different than what we have always done in the past but we are doing our best to always be as close to USGA rules as possible while keeping the pace and competition as fair as possible.
Other Rule changes
All players must putt everything out, no more pick up after the 3rd miss.
Ball will be played UP in the fairway, a player may move the ball 6″, no closer to the hole for a preferred lie.
Root rule has been removed, If a player does not want to hit a shot he must take an unplayable and a 1 stroke penalty
Excessive mud can be removed from ball anywhere in play. Must request it from playing partners before doing so.
Any ball that comes to rest in a cart path may get relief on the players preferred side, 1 club length.
Max score is now 5 over par. 3=8, 4=9, 5=10
Those are some of the biggest rule changes we have for the upcoming season. We will have a sheet or the rules on the scorecards for the players to be able to refer too though out the round.
If I would have hit this shot, It would have hit the lip of the bunker and rolled back into the sand 9 times out of 10.
Huge news came out in the Golf world yesterday as Tiger Woods signed what I imagine to be an incredibly lucrative contract to become probably the face of the PGA 2K Franchise. I play a lot of this game and do truly think it already is one of the best golf games ever made. (It took a while to grow on me, and I had to get the settings just right) Now with Tiger helping, it can only improve and continue to get better. It is great to have a good golf game on all our gaming platforms and it sure does help get me through the winter months when we can’t get outside.
I like this alot, we finally allow limited fans and are trying to get back to normalcy and we got idiots chirping Bill for missing a 20 footer.
Should be easy for him…the 28 year old who is giving up his football career will look to one day play on the tour..good luck man.
Hopefully Tiger is okay here, I will just let you guys read the TMZ story. Judging by Tigers eyes on Sunday he could be in a bad place again but let’s hope not and he recovers quick.
Not a bad weekend….
