HANDICAP REPORT

This is a repeat, but timely for the beginning of the year:

Here are a couple of the changes/amendments in the “Rules of Golf” for 2012 that you will want to know.  They will no doubt be applicable to most of us at one time or another in next year’s tournaments.  These changes will become effective in January of 2012.

BALL MOVING AFTER ADDRESS (rule 18-2b) A new exception is added which exonerates the player from penalty if the ball moves after it has been addressed when it is known or virtually certain that they did not cause the ball to move.  For example, if a gust of wind moves the ball after it has been addressed there is no penalty and the ball is played from its new position.

BALL IN HAZARD: PROHIBITED ACTIONS (rule 13-4) Exception 2 to this rule is amended to permit a player to smooth sand or soil in a hazard at any time, including before playing from that hazard, provided it is for the sole purpose of caring for course and rule 13-2 (improving lie, area of intended stance or swing or line of play) is not breached.

Handicap Chairman
