TD Comments- Fairview Golf Course
I want to start by complementing our first group of the day for the speediest round of the year thus far. The foursome finished in just less than 3 hours and 50 minutes. Great work! In addition, Garrett Engle posted our lowest score of the season at 3 under 68 as a part of that pairing. Simon Domencic moved up from the Boys’ Silver Division to finish in a tie for second place with Reese Watson at 74.
Ellen Wager was pushed all day by Amanda Gerrish. Both played well, but Wager responded like the four-time winner she was finishing with seven straight pars to edge Gerrish with a final score of 75. Gerrish finished right behind at 77.
In the Boys’ Silver Division there was another new winner with Andrew Bilson shooting a solid 76. Sean Cliff and Isaiah Parido finished in a tie for second place at 81. Keegan Dings continued her dominance in the Girls’ Silver Division with an 85, Jesse Shue’s 79 was a season low for the Boys’ Bronze Division, and Dylan Ramsey again won the Futures’ Division with a score of 40 on the back 9.
Attire: Boys- Just a reminder that you are expected to have your shirts tucked in at ALL TIMES while participating in an LCJGT event. We need to see them tucked in on the range, course, scoring area, and parking lot. In addition, remember that cargo shorts are not acceptable to wear while playing on our tour.
Foxchase: Next week’s tournament is our one shotgun of the year. Plan ahead! You need to be finished with all warm ups and registration for 1:00 instructions. Even though we start at 1:30, you need to be ready by 1:00. We suggest you arrive no later than 12:15.
“Lost” Clubs: There were several clubs left by players at different spots around the course. Clubs left behind sometimes happens when playing using a motorized cart, but it should not happen when walking. After using your club either get it back in your bag, by your bag, or on the fringe. When you leave it in the rough on the opposite side of the green, it is unlikely that you will retrieve/remember it.
Nearest point of relief: Many of our players are forgetting how to find the nearest point of relief. All of you had to do this at the rules clinic when showing how to take free relief from an immovable obstruction (cart path). Remember to take the club you are likely to play the shot with, take your stance, and then put a tee where the ball would be at your club. From there, now you start to measure your club-length. Here is a link to a great video on how to do this properly. https://www.usga.org/videos/2015/12/23/rules-of-golf-explained--nearest-point-of-relief-4673621920001.html
See you next Wednesday at Foxchase, and let’s hope for great weather and no storms.
