Thanks to NEWGA rep Deb Johnson, tournament chair Lynn Lefler and President Robin Bickerstaff for making this event such a success!

* Interesting facts about this year's NEWGA Tournament:

  • The tournament was played 30 years ago at Hop Meadow CC. In the field again this year were two winners from the 1987 event! Lida Tingley was the 1987 overall Champion. Holly Reynolds was the 1987 Junior Champion. Her father Red was on the bag when she won the one-hole junior playoff and he was on the bag again this year.
  • Former CWGA President Fanchon Cartin, who donated the Cartin Cup, spoke briefly at the awards ceremony.

RULE OF THE MONTH -- 'Playing from Outside Teeing Ground'

Playing outside the teeing ground can mean teeing off from the incorrect tee box on the correct hole, teeing off from in front of the tees on the correct hole, or teeing off on the wrong hole.

Match Play -- If a player, when starting a hole, plays a ball from outside the teeing ground, there is no penalty, but the opponent may immediately require the player to cancel the stroke and play a ball from within the teeing ground. (Note - the opponent can require you to play the original shot.)

Stroke Play -- Is more involved. If a competitor, when starting a hole, plays a ball from outside the teeing ground, she incurs a penalty of 2 strokes and must then play a ball from within the teeing ground. If the competitor who teed off from outside the proper teeing area holes out, and then makes a stroke from the next teeing ground without first correcting her mistake she is disqualified. The stroke from outside the teeing ground and any subsequent strokes by the competitor on the hole prior to her correction of the mistake do not count in her score.
