Re David Duval's really bad hole in Round 1 - change to 'facts' recorded above

According to today's Age: he thought he was playing his third ball until he realised at the green it was the wrong ball - he could not find the correct ball - so was obliged to return to the tee and start all over again - he was playing 9 of the tee - and took 6 more shots- the marker put it down as a 15 - and then after the scorers erroneously decided the third provisional did not count, it was up dated to a 14.

I am struggling with this. In the ordinary course of events he would play his second ball (first provisional ball) which he did.  The question then is what about the loss of a subsequent provisional ball(s). The message seems to be that you need to lose balls in the order in which you hit them so you are better off only hitting one provisional ball to reduce the chance of hitting a wrong ball. If you hit 3 balls off the tee lose the first and third but find the second you are deemed to have lost all three and need to go back and hit a fourth. So his fourth ball was his 7th stroke (including lost ball penalties) plus 2 strokes for a wrong ball gives a total of nine off the tee.  If he had another 6 shots after his fourth tee shot that totals 15 for the hole rather than 14 stated in the paper.  Something doesn't make sense here,

Cheers

Final round earlier than expected
JIM TUCKER
NORTH Lakes Golf Club will close on August 11 with more than 25 staff told yesterday that they will be out of a job in the transformation to a retirement village.

Golf shop workers, bar staff and course maintenance crew were informed the last rounds would be played on course that day with a contract of sale finalised earlier than forecast.

The closing date caught the active Save North Lakes Golf Course group by surprise because they had planned a fundraising golf day on August 11 to aid the fight.

Some staff will have employment options when The Village Retirement Group repurposes the 68ha site for a retirement village, aged care facility and large tracts of public open space.

Young pro Dane McArdle, who worked two or three days a week part-time in the North Lakes golf shop, said it was sad to see the quality layout close.

“As a golf course, this is one of the best in Brisbane and it’s definitely disappointing to see it close,” Mr McArdle said. “The club did a lot for me with time off to play events, use of the practice facilities and giving me work when I returned to help fund my golf career.”

The demise of the course after 17 years was hastened when owner Adam Simpson was confronted by losses and patronage continued to decline over the past 12 months.

ENDS

Big loss of amenity for all of the locals who bought homes at North Lakes to play golf ....you would have to question the decision of the Moreton Council if they have approved the change from sport and recreation to commercial development for a retirement village ...possibly the locals may have some legal remedies if they can afford the costs involved in attempting to save the golf course .

A former PGA Tour player has been suspended from the Korean Tour for three years after making an obscene gesture during Sunday's final round of the DGB Financial Group Volvik Daegu Gyeongbuk Open. Yes, that's correct. Three years.
According to the AFP, Bio Kim flipped off the crowd and slammed his club in frustration after hearing a fan's cell phone go off while he hit a shot on the 16th hole. Kim held a one-shot lead at the time and wound up winning for his second KPGA title of the season. After, he apologized for his outburst. Apparently, it wasn't enough to keep the tour's governing body from issuing a stiff punishment.
The KPGA reached a unanimous decision to fine Kim $8,350 (Or 10 million won) and suspend him for three years. The tour's current leader in money and player of the year points will not be allowed to finish the season.

That's an overreaction if ever I've seen one rough justice you would think he'll stand up for hisself and seek a judicioal review assuming the Korean justice system allows such an opportunity.

Might be money well spent......changes always take time to get used to and you must have confidence that they'll work.

Didn't know that.  :o

It's awhile since I played. :embarrassed:

I suppose they allow a tree iron now.

That's what we used to call the foot a cheat used by kicking the ball from up against a tree out onto the fairway when he thought no one was watching.

Watched a fair bit on tv today and the Yanks stuck on really well.

Impressed with Finau’s comeback to square after being 4 down to level then fall behind before squaring up again.

Scott was disappointing today and to be blunt I expected better.

The Americans have got some good young golfers.

No Day for the internationals but US did not have Koepka, Johnson while Spieth was probably not ranked high enough to get an automatic spot.

The internationals will rue today as the one that got away.

I've been watching golf tournaments since Kel Nagle was knee-high to a grasshopper (maybe a bit of exaggeration) and I've never seen a more roller coaster finish than that of the Queensland PGA today.

I didn't quite catch why Michael Sim was playing without a caddie.

If it was to save money you'd think someone would have at least offered to pull his  buggy around for the play-off holes.

It was hilarious viewing seeing those blokes pulling a buggy. Oh, and I could certainly relate to the last, erratic, 5 holes.
What about the leader who chunked his way around t9 finish bogey, bogey, double bogey and missed a tap in to not only lose the lead but miss the play off

I’ll feel much better on the first tee at Stonecutters tomorrow   :lol:

Sim survives chaos and playoff to win QLD PGA

By Australian Golf Media media release Feb 16 2020 7:05PM



Gold Coast-based Michael Sim has completed the Queensland quinella after dropped shots and scoring miscalculations saw the final round of the Coca-Cola Queensland PGA Championship conclude in chaotic fashion.

After he stormed to the top of the leaderboard with a course record nine-under 61 in the opening round at City Golf Club in Toowoomba on Thursday, Brad Kennedy spent the next 54 holes trying to keep the field at bay.

With a one-shot buffer at the start of the final round, Kennedy picked up shots at the 3rd, 5th and 12th holes to be 15 under and four shots clear of Sim and the chasing pack with three holes to play before disaster struck.

The Queenslander dropped shots at both 16 and 17 to fall to 13 under and stood on the 18th tee with the understanding that Sydney’s Scott Arnold was safely ensconced in the clubhouse on the same score.

It wasn’t until after Kennedy had hit his tee shot into the left rough that he was informed Arnold had in fact posted 12 under and that par would be enough to complete a wire-to-wire win.

It also opened the door for Sim, who was in prime position in the centre of the fairway and needing a birdie to also get to 12 under and keep his faint title hopes alive.

“Walking off 15 I thought any chance of winning was almost gone,” Sim admitted after a par at the fourth playoff hole was enough to defeat Arnold, a close mate who is hitching a lift back to the Gold Coast on Sunday evening.

“Everything just happened so fast. I stood on the 18th tee at 11 (under) and Scott was in at 13. I actually asked Graeme Scott the tournament director whether Scott had finished at 13. He’s a mate of mine and I thought I was gone but he said he’d actually finished at 12.

“Brad was over in the trees and I saw him lay up and I thought, I’ve got a chance here if I hit a good shot and birdie it, which I did.

“I didn’t have my best stuff today – I don’t really think anyone near the top of the leaderboard did. Everyone kept falling away and it was nice to hit a great 8-iron into the last there in regulation and give myself a chance in the playoff.”

After choosing to lay up from deep rough with his second shot, Kennedy three-putted the 72nd hole to miss the playoff entirely, Sim and Arnold trading pars and bogies from all sides of the 18th hole until Sim prevailed at the fourth attempt with an up-and-down from just left of the green.

Sim’s Queensland Open victory at Brisbane Golf Club in 2017 was his first in eight years and a career that once promised all the highs that professional golf has to offer has been in a state of flux ever since.

Now a father with a young son, Sim won the WA Open in October last year but faced such an uncertain future in tournament golf that he is halfway through completing his PGA of Australia bridging course at Burleigh Golf Club.

It’s a far cry from the young man who went toe-to-toe with Tiger Woods in the final round of the 2009 US Open and his latest win ensures the tentacles of pro golf’s lure remain semi-attached.

“I might go to America and do some pre-qualifiers, I don’t know,” said Sim, who will start next week’s Queensland Open at Pelican Waters Golf Club as one of the tournament favourites.

“I’m doing my bridging program at the moment and I’m halfway through that but I seem to have been playing well since I started my traineeship. I’m not too sure what the future holds.

“There’s a lot of emotion. I never thought I’d be here and to come away with the trophy is just amazing.”

Kennedy finished tied for third at 11 under along with fellow Japan Golf Tour regular Michael Hendry, Dimi Papadatos and Korean Chang Gi Lee with Andrew Dodt (64), Denzel Leremia (70) and Anthony Quayle (73) a shot further back in a tie for seventh.
