Rule 2 - The Course
Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that.
2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds
The Committee has to decide where boundaries are.
2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course
There are five:
the teeing area
If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green.
2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play
Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions.
No relief for boundary objects.
2.4 - No Play Zones
Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here
can be an ACC or a penalty area
Last lesson of the year today 12/2:
Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it.
Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
