Thanks to Martyn Huish and Katy McNicoll for running a rules quiz for the squad and committee tonight. The quiz really tested our knowledge of the rules and made everyone realise that it is well worth brushing up on the rules as sometimes it can be to our advantage. Martyn and Katy certainly chose some testing, “advanced” questions for us to answer. Let’s just say some were better, or luckier, than others. You can do a lot of guessing when the questions are multiple choice and true or false.

Who can drop a ball if you are playing a foursomes? Can you lean on your club in a bunker? What is the penalty for a double hit?

After such a long break from competition golf we probably need a quick reminder. The R and A website has an excellent rules section and there is an App that you can download.
