Rules Evening - is that a penalty?
On the evening of Wednesday 28th November our resident PGA referee Paul Deeprose hosted an evening on the 2019 Rule changes. A very informative session with a great turn out from 82 club members.
The evening consisted of a run down of the principle changes to the rules for 2019, from dropping from the knee to putting with the flag in. Paul negotiated all the hazards and provided anecdotes from his time refereeing on the European and Euro Pro tours. Paul took questions throughout the evening and managed to enlighten many of our golfers on rules that haven't been rules for years but they were still using.
The Chef did an excellent job in catering for us all with a lovely Cottage Pie.
Paul rounded out the evening with a small quiz on the rules, he chucked in some tricky questions to catch us out but in the main we all managed to get some questions correct.
I'd like to offer up my thanks to Paul and his team, plus the club for allowing this evening to run, the turnout was fantastic and just goes to show the type of club we have at Long Sutton.
Hopefully the weather doesn't dampen the spirits of our members too much in the coming week and we're able to get some golf in pre-christmas
