The Cejka Ruling Today on Champions Tour


Recommended Posts

How was KVC determined for Cejka’s drop after hitting into the water (I think on 15)?

Jimenez questioned the ruling and I think that he was correct in doing so. 

How did that official determine with KVC that the ball, before going back into the water, bounced inbounds on the green side of the hazard? Nobody saw it and TV footage only showed the golf ball bouncing before returning to the water (not that it ever cleared the line for the penalty area).

I may have just been helped to find the answer. 

Is rule 1.3b the answer? Is the measure now “reasonable judgement” of the player rather than KVC?


If so, I think that opens the door for those who would be inclined to bend (I’m being kind) the rules to benefit themselves. 

It seemed clear to me that Jimenez didn’t agree with the “reasonable judgement” that Cejka used - and I’m not implying that Cejka cheated - just that Miguel disagreed with the drop.

What the heck is KVC? I did see that tourney and I did wonder how they came to the conclusion they did.

It appears that Hardsluckster has found the correct terms to answer their question.

KVC is used when it is necessary to determine whether a ball is on a specific area of the course or out of bounds.

Reasonable judgement is used when it is known in which area a ball is but it is not sure what is the reference point to be used, that is, the point where that ball last crossed the edge of that area (such as a Penalty Area or GUR).

    • My college was about 50% Natalie's cost. An order of magnitude would be crazy. I don't think that rule of thumb holds up. 10x over 20-25 years? That's so far out of whack I can't imagine it. Denison costs about $75,000 per year. No way it cost only $7500 in 1996. Allegheny almost as much, and no way did it cost < $7k 25 years ago. It's gone up but I have no belief it's an order of magnitude.
    • Definitely better and different than at the 2017 Newport Cup. Good work. This amount of change is hard.
    • Sadly, a rule of thumb on tuition is an order of magnitude per generation. When I was a freshman at WPI, my roommate and I were paying $6000 tuition. His dad, who went to WPI, pay $600. Now it $60,000. And frankly, it’s not like the school is worth a 1000% more now.  I would only agree to forgiveness or help where the loans were predatory in nature. There have been instances of this, especially in the for-profit universities. But the cost has to be reined in. It’s far greater than inflation would justify.
    • My go to ball is the Snell MTB Black (great ball at a great price).  Characteristics and performance are comparable to the below balls I also play. I’ll buy the ZStar (buy 2, get 1) and TP5x (buy 3, get 1) when they’re on sale.  I also really like the ProV1, but only play them when I get them as a gift.
    • I don’t see anything wrong with your bag.  Maybe just continue messing around with longer clubs until you find something you really like?   Not sure an extra club in your scoring clubs is necessary either.  I think the best way to tighten up that end of the bag is working on flighted shots.
