Hi,

Thot if cannot find the ball, strictly speaking will have to go back to original position to play another ball with 1 penalty stroke...

Let's focus on the joy of the occasion rather than the rules... it's in the past anyway Smile

You?

Oh, mine was Tanjong Puteri 'A' Course.
One was a 183m Par 3, and the other was a 380m Par 4.

That par 4 from the back 9? I remember that one.. it is very challenging.. Congrats!

It's the one where your drive needs to land on the right hand side of the fairway in order to have a clear unblocked shot onto the green over the water. It's not really a long Par 4, but if your drive goes left, there's NO way to get on in two. Smile Anyway, i putted it in from the fringe.. so it's sorta like a lucky break.

Still count as a 3.... Very Happy

I was lucky on my 1st game in 2010. Tee off on a par 5 but landed in rough, unable to find the ball as the rough is thick. Drop a ball to play my 2nd shot which landed about 45m from pin. Took my 3rd shot, the ball roll in..... Laughing

Thats a PAR and not Birdie bro..

Which means you got an EAGLE??

Dude, sorry to burst your bubble, but If you were unable to find your ball, you would have to take a drop, and you'd be playing your 3rd from where you dropped it.

Should be playing 4th shot if you drop having declared a lost ball bro. What Bro Hoewill said is correct.

not trying to take away your moment, that is a very good chip, but as long as no bets involve, i will gladly give u an birdie or eagle

BUT i would like to point out that the right mode of play woul be to go back n hit the shot again with a penalty stroke incurred, so that u can LEARN the rules of golf n can benefit from it...... in future games, like medals or formal games, u can apply what u learn in this forum


the year just started, play often n the birdies/eagles will come......

be positive: when u can chip-in once, u know u can do it again, take that experience n go for the hole every time....... i tell this to myself all the time

Changing the rule is against the rules.... Very Happy

1-3.Agreement to Waive Rules
Players must not agree to exclude the operation of any Rule or to
waive any penalty incurred.
PENALTY FOR BREACH OF RULE 1-3:
Match play – Disqualification of both sides;
Stroke play – Disqualification of competitors concerned. lol!

Let me ask a purely hypothetical question..... Question

Sunday morning and all the GR members get together for a game of soccer...

One of the members scores a goal but uses his hand to hit the ball... people object.... he states "but I dont want to play by those rules today"..... "Is everyone agreeable"?

Does that still mean it is a game of soccer?

Or tennis, lets not use the one bounce rule... the ball can bounce as many times as you want... Still tennis?

Dont get me wrong, there are a few rules in golf that I dont agree with, but you cannot tell me you shot 83 or whatever if you did not play by the rules..... Very Happy
