Medal Update:

On Saturday we have the Senior Club Championship and medal played from the white tees. Followed by a yellow tee stable ford on Sunday. On Wednesday the 10th we have the MFQ #9 from the yellow tees. I have had a few queries as to the reasons for some recent disqualifications in the last competition and to help avoid these I have copied the R&A ruling on the player’s responsibilities as to completing the scorecard.

“In any round of a handicap competition, the competitor must ensure that his handicap is recorded on his score card before it is returned to the committee. If no handicap is recorded on his score card before it is returned, or if the recorded handicap is higher than that to which he is entitled and this affects the number of strokes received, he is disqualified from the handicap competition; otherwise, the score stands. Note: It is the player’s responsibility to know the holes at which handicap strokes are to be given or received.

After completion of the round, the “competitor” should check his score for each hole and settle any doubtful points with the committee. He must ensure that the marker or markers have signed the score card, sign the score card himself and return it to the committee as soon as possible.”

PENALTY FOR BREACH OF RULE 6-6b: Disqualification.
