Ball didn't get past the ladies tees

4 posts in this topic

So I play in a mixed league on Monday's. This one guy was playing against this on girl. On the 2nd hole, a par 5. The white tees are some 60-70 yards away from were the women tee off. So he duffs his drive about 40 yards in front of him. The girl was about to hit, but my opponent held her up to allow the other guy to play his 2nd shot because he was away. I got to thinking, is that correct. We are pretty lax about "Order of Play", and who has honors. So it was no big deal, but I was just curious as to what would happen in an official match were competition has people hitting from different tee boxes.

So a bit of research,

10-2. Stroke Play

a. When Starting Play of Hole

The competitor who has the honor at the first teeing ground is determined by the order of the draw. In the absence of a draw, the honor should be decided by lot.

The competitor with the lowest score at a hole takes the honor at the nextteeing ground. The competitor with the second lowest score plays next and so on. If two or more competitors have the same score at a hole, they play from the next teeing ground in the same order as at the previous teeing ground.

Exception: Rule 32-1 (handicap bogey, par and Stableford competitions).

b. During Play of Hole

After the competitors have started play of the hole, the ball farthest from thehole is played first. If two or more balls are equidistant from the hole or their positions relative to the hole are not determinable, the ball to be played first should be decided by lot.

From this I presume, it doesn't matter if the guy duffed it a foot or 40 yards, the girl would then proceed to hit. Then the hole is now currently in play, the person farthest would play first.

His ball can't be "away" if she hasn't put a ball in play.

As a side note:  If she had played and hit her ball out of bounds, she would have played a stroke and even though she is playing again from tee, with the option of teeing the ball, he is now away as both players have started play on the hole.  In this case it doesn't matter that she doesn't yet have a ball in play.  The fact that she played a stroke means that both players have begun play on the hole.  The same ruling would apply if she had whiffed the ball.

That is what I said.

I guess it would have read better this way,

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
