Begin your set up procedure by clearly establishing your target line in your minds eye. I always pick a mark on the ground a few feet ahead of me as a reference point. Next, set the clubface behind the ball so that it looks squarely at your target. Then move your body into position, using the square clubface and either your selected mark or the image of the target line in

GOLF RULE Rule 20-2c/3.5 Q. A player’s ball comes to rest against a boundary stake. He declares the ball unplayable and drops it within two club lengths of where the ball originally lay, as prescribed by Rule 28b. After the ball has been at rest it rolls and comes to rest out of bounds. What is the ruling. A. If a dropped ball comes to rest, but subsequently moves, the ball shall be played as it lies. In this case the ball is out of bounds and the player must proceed under rule 27-1. Since the ball was at rest before moving, Rule 20-2c is not applicable.

We continue to advise you on how to best manage your play at Monterey Pines Golf Course. You will only see the tougher Par 3 holes in this column as this month we work on: HOLE #13: 192 YARDS , PAR 3 This hole is tough! It’s long and features two huge Monterey cypress trees that guard the left side of the green. The right side is trapped, leaving the golfer with only a small opening to hit to the green. Another problem can also occur. Most golfers either slice or face a golf ball, which is affected then by the prevailing afternoon breeze off the ocean.

There are two shots to play:
“The first shot option (geared to the more accomplished golfer) is to hit a high hard drive at the right side of the bunker (sand trap) bringing it rightto-left to the green”. “With the second shot option, the average golfer, using a club that will keep the ball low, can hit the ball and let it roll to the green. If it does not hit the green, at least there is the opportunity to chip it close and save par.”
