Be sure to double check start time.
Remember this year will be the second year of the new classifications for girls golf. The breakdown is 6A – 36 (if all compete), 5A – 36 (if all compete), 4A – 40% of remaining, 3-2-1A – 60% of remaining.
Regional entries are due online Oct. 10. This can be done through the coach or AD login. Regional managers need to refrain from organizing groups until Oct. 10 noon.
Playoffs Only For First
Reminder: with the new postseason format passed by the executive board last year, playoffs will only occur if there is a tie for 1st. Places 2-10 will receive a top-10 medal.
There is a statement in the golf manual that pertains to worthy competitor for postseason play. If you have golfers that should not be participating in postseason because of high scores it is important to make a good decision for the spirit of competition.
Rule of the Week
This past week at the Safeway Open, Justin Thomas hit an approach that came down on the green and contacted Jim Furyk’s ball that already lay on the green. Thomas’ ball caromed off the green.
Ruling: Justin Thomas has to play his ball from where it lies. Furyk will replace his ball to where it lied before impact from Thomas’ ball.
