TD Comments- George Crudden Memorial at Four Seasons 2018
This year’s Crudden Memorial provided another winner with a score under par which seems appropriate considering the names found on the Crudden trophy. It reads as a “who’s who” of Lancaster County junior golf over the last 20 years. Brock Fassnacht has now secured his place on that list. While he had a bit of a roller coaster round that included six birdies, he ultimately held it together to shoot one under and hoist the trophy. Luke Thompson finished second at 73, and Nicolas Fioravante and Hamilton McNaughton tied for third at 75.
Ellen Wager and Amanda Gerrish had quite a battle going for the Girls’ Gold win. Wager eventually pulled out the first place win with a strong score of 80. This is her second win of the season.
In the Boys’ Silver Division, Logan Wagner secured his first win of the 2018 season with a score of 83. Nicholas Weaver and Simon Domencic finished right behind him with a pair of 85’s. Keegan Dings posted a 90 to win the Girl’s Silver Division, Jesse Shue won the Boys’ Bronze Division with 84, and Dylan Ramsey won the Futures’ Division with a fantastic score of 40. Nicholas Stramara finished second at 44.
Volunteers: Parents, we continue to look for volunteers to serve in several areas at each event. We always need spotters. Even if you have never done it, we can give directions and support so you feel comfortable with expectations. Please email or text Peanut Erb or the website to volunteer.
Staying for Awards: It is important to make this VERY CLEAR because there were several instances where this didn’t happen at Four Seasons, if you are in position for a prize you MUST stay for the awards presentation unless you get approval to leave on tournament day from the tournament director or assistant tournament director. The way you know is by checking the scoring to see your current position. If you are within the prizes- stay. Once you are outside of the prizes- you may leave.
Handicap Spectator Carts: Tanglewood does not permit spectator carts for any reason. Please be aware of this. It is not an LCJGT decision in any way.
Range: The range at Tanglewood is not on the same property as the golf course. It is located on the same road and about 1 mile before you arrive at the course. I would suggest arriving with sufficient time to stop at the range on your way in for a warm up session. Once you get to the course you should then be sure to check in at the registration table.
Pace of Play: We are expecting all groups to play in 4 hours and 12 minutes or less. You are considered “out of position” if you arrive at the tee of a par 4 and the group in front is off the green. A few ideas that will help you play at a better pace: walk with a purpose, limit practice swings to a maximum of two, place your bag where you will exit the green, start preparing to play before it is your turn, and be efficient in how you read putts.
Known or virtually certain: This term can be found in Decision 26-1/1, and it refers to the situation on a golf course where the player strikes his ball toward a water hazard, but doesn’t know for sure if the ball actually entered the hazard. Known or Virtually Certain literally means being 99% sure. A player can’t assume his ball entered a water hazard, just because it went in that direction. There needs to be actual evidence that the ball went into the hazard. Without that, the ball may have to actually be deemed lost, and that penalty (Rule 27) is much harsher than a ball entering a water hazard (Rule 26).
Marking balls on the green: At many of the younger levels we are seeing a lot of players putting while other balls are on the green. If there is ANY chance you could hit another ball on the green, that other ball should be marked. Before you get a penalty for hitting another ball with your putt, start making sure others are marking their ball. On the flip side, you should be marking your ball nearly every time it is located on the green and it isn’t your turn to play.
See everyone at Tanglewood for our 2018 Major. Points are worth 1.5 towards the tour championship.
