20 Must Know Rules of Golf Changes for 2019

1 -   Drop from knee height (NOT shoulder height)

2 -   Measure the area to drop in with the longest club in your bag (except a putter)

3 -   Drop in and play from the relief area

4 -   When dropping back-on-the-line, your ball cannot be played from nearer the hole than your chosen reference point

5 -   Time to search – 3 minutes (NOT 5 minutes)

6 -   If you accidentally move your ball when searching for it, replace it without penalty

7 -   No penalty for a double hit – it only counts as one stroke

8 -   No penalty if your ball hits you or your equipment accidentally after a stroke

9 -   No penalty if your ball strikes the flagstick when you have chosen to leave it in the hole

10 - Spike mark and other shoe damage on the putting green can be repaired

11 -  Ball accidentally moved on putting green – no penalty and replace

12 - Ball marked, lifted and replaced on putting green is moved by wind to another position –replace ball on the original spot

13 - Penalty areas replace water hazards, and you can move loose impediments, ground your club and take practice swings in penalty areas without penalty, just as you can on the fairway or in the rough

14 - You can’t take relief from a penalty area unless you are at least 95% certain your ball is in the penalty area

15 - In bunkers you can move loose impediments

16 - In bunkers you cannot touch the sand with your club in the area right in front of or right behind your ball, during your backswing or in taking practice swings

17 - Free relief is allowed if your ball is embedded on the fairway or in the rough (but “embedded” means that part of your ball is below the level of the ground)

18 - Unplayable ball in bunker – extra option to drop outside the bunker for 2 penalty strokes

19 - You cannot have your caddie or your partner standing behind you once you begin taking your stance

20 - Pace of Play - it is recommended that you take no longer than 40 seconds to make a stroke (and usually you should be able to play more quickly than that) and Ready Golf in stroke play is encouraged

Mixed Friendly Against Stafford Castle - Friday 17th August 2018

Our Lady Captain did an excellent job in arranging the last Mixed Friendly of the season against Stafford Castle on Friday 17th August. 

This was the first time the fixture had taken place and it is hoped to make it an annual event with the date for the return match already arranged for next year. 

Leek almost managed a white wash but were let down by of all people the team of Mr Captain and Lady Captain. By all accounts they were well and truly thrashed by a lady! Mr Captain did seem to spend more time in the trees than on the fairway and Lady Captain declared that she was saving herself for the Pro's Comp on Sunday. 

After the game we were excellently wined and dined by Tony, Adam and Staff. Five Stars chaps!

The final result was Leek 9, Stafford Castle 1.
