Dave Hill shot the best score of the day and duly qualified as best nett with John Holyoake the second best nett of the day also qualifying. Pat Clasby was runner up in the gross and Jimmy Cooley 3rd in his division to also qualify.

06/06/2017 - “Ready Golf”

In this year’s Amateur Championship (strokeplay rounds) The R&A is adopting the principle of “Ready Golf” in order to assist pace of play. Where possible competitors are asked to similarly give this a try.  Examples of “Ready Golf” in action are: 

• Hitting a shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a challenging shot and is taking time to assess their options.

• Shorter hitters playing first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait.

• Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being ready to play.

• Hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball.

• Putting out even if it means standing close to someone else’s line.

• Hitting a shot if a person who has just played from a greenside bunker is still farthest from the hole but is delayed due to raking the bunker.

• When a player’s ball has gone over the back of a green, any player closer to the hole but chipping from the front of the green should play while the other player is having to walk to their ball and assess their shot.

 

 
06/06/2017 - Single World Handicap System 
The USGA and The R&A announced they in April that they are working with golf’s handicapping authorities to develop a universal system which will apply all over the world. Firm proposals will be made later this year. Currently there are six different systems around the world, providing handicaps for over 15 million golfers in more than 80 countries.
