We had a great tournament on February 25 at Talega Golf Club in San Clemente. The weather was good and the course in fine shape. The game that day was “1, 2, 3 Foursome”. The 1st hole score is best net of the four players.

The 2nd hole score is 2 best net scores of the four players. The 3rd hole score is 3 best net scores of the four players. The remaining holes are scored in same rotation as 1st three holes. First Place went to the team of Roy Dohner, Morry Dohner, and Gary Katsuki. Second Place went to the team of Dennis Rosene, Bill Johnson, and Bill Verbrugge. Closest to the pin went to Bill Verbrugge on hole # 8 and John Monson on hole #17.

Exceptions to the rules of golf—Experimental Shot: When a ball comes to rest in a lie that precludes the execution of a conventional golf stroke, a player may elect to attempt an experimental shot incorporating an innovative manner of gripping or swinging the club or a novel means of addressing the ball. If as a result of this inventive and enterprising play the ball fails to move at all, or comes to rest in a position substantially worse than the one it previously occupied, he may then declare his ball unplayable and proceed to drop it in the nearest playable lie without assessing a additional stroke, provided he clearly states before commencing his swing that his sole motivation in undertaking what appears to be a greedy and idiotic shot is an unselfish desire to add a hitherto unknown method of striking the ball to the general body of golfing knowledge for the ultimate benefit of players everywhere.
