We had a great day for golf this morning and 40 FBMGA members teed it up at 8:30 AM. We had 20 two- man teams playing a shamble where both players drive and they pick the drive they want to play and each player plays his ball into the hole from there. The total of the two players is the score for the hole. We added a new wrinkle this tournament and each player had to play their own ball into the hole on the par threes. It made a difference, because I heard of some double and triple bogeys on 7South. Thanks to all those who played and congratulations to the winners. We had four flights and $1,800 in prize money.

As always, if you have ideas to improve our FBMGA Tournaments, please contact me. New member Mark Omura has been discussing some new ideas and one that I liked I heard from someone else recently. A Two man shamble but each player will have to use 9 drives: A player: 1,3,5,7,9, etc. B player: 2,4,6,8, 10 etc. Play your own ball in from the player's drive that you have to play. I might try that in the fall. The Golf Course Advisory Board is starting to set up a committee to start organizing a "FRIENDS OF THE FERNANDINA BEACH GOLF COURSE" non-profit organization. If you are interested in assisting in this long term project, contact me.
Thanks to our General Manager, Mike Cooney for all his help this weekend. It has been 10 years since we had a General Manager participating, keeping score, making sure everything is right. A BIG THANKS TO YOU MIKE, and a big thanks also to Mike Benjamin who did a great job with scorecards, score sheets...thank you Mike and TO ALL THE FBGC STAFF...thank you also!!!

Most notably, there are 10 fewer rules: 24 versus 34. And, for the most part, they are more understandable and more accommodating to the realities of today’s game.
Regarding the “stroke and distance” penalty for hitting a ball out of bounds: the new rules will provide for a local rule “to allow golfers the option to drop the ball in the vicinity of where the ball is lost or out of bounds (including the nearest fairway area), under a two-stroke penalty.” The change is intended to support pace of play and is not for higher levels such as professionals and elite amateurs.
Accidentally moving your ball on the putting green won’t cost you a stroke
No additional penalty for hitting a ball in motion. The “double hit”.
No penalty if your ball in motion accidentally hits you or your equipment.
Embedded-ball relief anywhere except in a bunker.
No penalty for hitting an unattended flagstick if you are putting while on the green. This may or may not be to your advantage.
You can repair “spike marks, and other damage made by shoes, animal damage and other damage on the putting green.” There is no penalty for touching the line of putt.
There also are more generous applications regarding relief from hazards and other penalty areas. Under the new rules, a player will be able to move loose impediments in a bunker and touch the sand with club or hand. It goes without saying, it is hoped, that this is not for players to improve their lie therein.
In relief situations, you can drop from the knee, not shoulder, level.
The time searching for a lost ball is down to three minutes from five.
The 600-page Decisions on the Rules of Golf doorstop is gone. It will be replaced by three volumes: Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf, the Rules of Golf and the Official Guide to the Rules of Golf. There will be more than 30 “how to apply” videos and a summary of the principal changes available at www.usga.org/rules and www.RandA.org or try this: https://sports.yahoo.com/nine-changes-rules-golf-absolutely-192449723.html
