The Sixth and Final Selection for the 2017 Newport Cup, West Coast (Red) Team is…

@kpaulhus

Red Team

I'm lucky enough to get Kyle on the team before he moves to FL. He played in the '15 Newport Cup and I remember him hitting a lot of great shots. Particularly one off a wall :-OHe's a longtime member of the site and his game always seems to be trending in the right direction. I also think he plays almost every day so a couple 36 hole days won't be a big deal for him ;-)

Thanks to everyone that submitted their videos and showed interest. I really appreciate it. It's great to have the '17 team be a good mix of new guys with some returning players. Look forward to having everyone compete and have a lot of fun in Pinehurst.

Here's your West Coast Red Team! :beer:

He is old, he doesn't hit it far, he can't putt and he spends too much time online ...our last and worst East Team member... @bkuehn1952

Other than being selected in a different position, you've described me perfectly.  Weelcome to the team!! :beer:

And congratulations to @kpaulhus, its going to be a treat to see you again, and compete against you!

Thank you all very much. It's a Monday morning in Arkansas and I'm golfing. (Shocker I know) looking forward to being on the Red team and contributing one last time. Great guys on both sides and looking forward to meeting everyone.

You're cheering for the wrong team..

No No, I have "Red Blood" in my veins and I live on the West side of the Mississippi which make me a West Coast fan.

I'll be rooting for my guys believe me, but I also support any player to play as well as they can. Just ask @DaveP043 how much competiveness I have in my Blood...  ;-)

Now can someone help my find my ball in the woods? 

Only if your tee shots were half as predictable as the old man jokes...:-D

    • Figured it out. KVC only applies to where the ball is, not whether it completely crossed the hazard or not. 
    • I think this is the course @Double Mocha Manis talking about. Doing this from my phone so not sure if you can read the rules in the upper left. 
    • Direction of play is to the right - the trench runs more or less perpendicular across the fairway. There’s definitely a lot of foot wedging going on there. Because the trench was shaped to collect and divert water along the natural slope of the hole, it also tends to collect balls and divert them into the flatter parts of the trench.
    • Welcome.  Before the snow flies in Kelowna I'd get out on the course for at least one round... to see what you need to work on over the winter.
    • 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.
