Does anyone know the rule on this? Down the side of one of the fairways at my course it is GUR, I was playing in a stableford comp on Saturday and a boy in our group fires it in to there off the tee. We head down to have a look and cant find it. I thought he would have to go back to the tee and hit another but he said as we agreed it went in to the GUR he gets a free drop even though he didn't find it. I couldn't be arsed arguing with him so just told him to do whatever he wanted, he was well out of the running anyway. Just want to know if hes a cheating bastard or no!

I would have thought it is covered under the abnormal rule mentioned a few pages back. Free drop where it entered the GUR.

the exact opposite in fact - the ball has to be lost, everyone has to agree it went into the dodgy area -  which itself has to meet certain pre-conditions. I would imagine GUR automatically qualifies for those conditions simply by the fact its GUR

Think the confusion is that its not staked, its a wooded area thats usually covered in bark so you can find the ball if it goes in, its overgrown a bit so the captain and the committee decided to make it GUR until it was sorted.

I had a good weekends golf. Played in the Winter league omn saturday and was 5 down after 10 (giving 11 strokes away) but played the last 9 in level par and managed to half the match - dormy 3 as well. The other guy was vomiting. On sunday met a guy at the first tee and played against him - giving away 9 strokes and was 3 down after 4 but again bounced back for a 3&2 victory.

 

lesson - I need to stop drinking the night before golf

Actually prefer the Kings course, the pga course is kinda bland in comparison

We move it into the rough or off a mat up to yourself. 

Anyway was sitting on 18 points on the 8th tee hit a drive up the left didn't have a 2nd shot so decided to hit a 6 iron up the 7th hole and lost the ball must have been plugged or under a leaf and wasn't walking back as it was Baltic got a par at the 9th for 20 points. I was out in 29 without counting the 8th but it was winter greens. Then came back in 19 points had a blob up the last so had 39 points not scoring on 2 holes never do well in the winter would put money on it being my best score this winter. It was me my dad and another guy we know the other guy had 45 points he was sinking everything.

winter league 4 ball got beat 3&2. The guy I was paired with I have never even seen before and plays off 23. he done nothing the entire round and wasn't even taking it that seriously till about the 9th when he had a tap-in for the hole and fresh-aired it. I was fucking seething and my face was tripping me.

gross 75 as well, full greens ( and i play off the rough rather than mat) so pleased with the way i was striking the ball, but the two guys we were playing were both off 16 and dovetailed nicely and I felt I was playing them myself because of the useless cunt I had with me.

 

Not bitter though...:lol:

How does your winter league work ? We are just stableford but seen a few folk saying it's doubles with different folk.

they do a draw every week, typically 4 ball depending on numbers you may get drawn in the 2 ball. Different partner ever week based on the draw. 90% of the low man handicap and match play. 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw

Ahh right so say you and your partner win you get 3 points each and that goes to your points on the league. That's a good way saves all the cheating with stableford. 

Tap in and fresh airing it :lol::lol:
