New NIGHT GOLF Club forming


New Governmental Golf Czar!



Senator Robert Q. Kowalski (no relation to our own Tuesday Golfer Kowalski), Our New Golf Czar is implementing major rule changes in the game of golf and will become effective September 1, 2012.

Golfers with handicaps:
  below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35%.
  between 10 and 18 will see no increase in green fees.
  above 18 will get a $20. check each time they play.

The term "Gimmie" will be changed to "Entitlement" and will be used as follows:
 
  handicaps below 10 - no Entitlements.
   handicaps from 11 to 17, Entitlements for putter length putts.
   handicaps above 18, if your ball is on the green, no need to putt, just pick it up.

 These Entitlements are intended to bring about fairness and, most importantly, equality in scoring. In addition a player will be limited to a maximum of one birdie or six pars in any given 18-hole round. Any excess must be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or par.

Only after all players have received a birdie or par from the player actually making the birdie or par, can that player begin to count his pars and birdies again. The current USGA handicap system will be used for the above purposes, but the term 'net score' will be available only for scoring those players with handicaps of 18 and above.

This is intended to "re-distribute" the success of winning by making sure that in every competition, the above 18 handicap players will post only 'net scores' against every other player's "gross score". These new rules are intended to CHANGE the game of golf.

Golf must be about Fairness. It should have nothing to do with ability, hard work, practice, and responsibility. This is the "Right thing to do."


And speaking about 'Fairness" --- Tuesday Golfers Rules will also change effective September 1, 2012.

There will be NO MORE "A" Players!

There will be NO MORE "Manipulation" of chips!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Even "A" players can have a bad day, otherwise they'd be in the PGA Tourneys.

For Team Selections (And we're talking about FAIRNESS here), all chips will be turned over, so no names appear, and a different golfer, each week, will turn over the chips, and wherever they fall that's the way the teams will be... (In all FAIRNESS, there should never be the same team 2 weeks in a row.

Some weeks we may even have 2 'Alleged' (who really decides) "A" players on the same team.  "Tango Sierra, y'all", And maybe a couple of 'All Red-Tee' guys too. Again: "Tango Sierra" -- "Get over it, we're here to have FUN!

 


Kowalski's Tee Shot on the 10th Tee


Our Tuesday 'Trivial Specialist', and Internet 'Improbable Research (IR) Googeler', Steve Landrum discovered that for the past 11 years, June 5 has been celebrated as "Dead Duck Day" to commemorate the sudden and dramatic death on June 5, 1995 of the mallard (Anas Platyrhynchos) that entered the scientific literature as the first victim of homosexual necrophilia in this species. In 2003, the incident was also commemorated with the awarding of the Ig Nobel Biology Prize.

Kowalski's tee shot was a direct hit to the head of the duck. Later, at the 19th hole, he was able to produce a valid Michigan Duck Hunting License. (We're still investigating whether it applies to duck hunting in Florida.)

Every year, the duck-loving citizens of Rotterdam, Holland gather to commemorate and re-enact the historic event and attendees are invited to take part in the six-course duck dinner at a nearby restaurant.

"It is impossible to please everyone ALL the time." Some like Early, Some need more sleep.

So... our new 'team selection' time will be 7AM. If you like 'Early', stop in at Nicole's Kitchen
and have a full breakfast: ham and eggs and bacon or whatever. (And you can request to be in
the 1st or 2nd group.)

If you like 'Late', we MIGHT be able to fit you in the last group, but there are no guarantees.
So be there before 7AM.

And remember: "Some Old People grumble and complain and are unhappy no matter what.!"
But...Tuesday Golfers are a fun group of folks who enjoy golf, camaraderie, a few 'caustic'
and/or sarcastic remarks, and always enjoy their 'highlight of the week'.
"See ya at 7:00 AM!"
