Went up to Newton today and met Doug Hill. He is gracious enough to move pins for us and provide scorecards. Pin positions will be as follows: 1 right, 2 short, 3 normal, 4 right, 5 long, 6 short, 7 long (right), 8 short, 9 long, 10 long, 11 long, 12 normal, 13 left, 14 short, 15 long, 16 short, 17 right and 18 left.
A reminder on how match play works. You simply win, lose, or draw on each hole. Order of play is normal, furthest out throws first. Plan on holing out unless your opponent volunteers a concession. You may concede a hole at any time, but you may not ask for a concession. If you're 3 ft away and your opponent does not offer a pick up then you must play it out. You play until one person is up more holes than there are holes left to play. So, if you're up 3 holes with 2 to play, you win 3&2.
If the match is a draw at the end of 18 holes, you simply continue on to the next hole. If hole 4 was your 18th hole, then proceed to 5 to play out the match. If your match ends early and the other pairing on your card is continuing on you must walk with them to act as a referee.
We'll take a reasonable lunch break after 2nd round so plan on eating well to start the day or bring snacks because I'm gonna start 2nd round fairly quickly after 1st round is complete. Also, it's gonna be fairly hot so bring plenty of fluids. I'm gonna bring a few gallons of water, but you guys need to be prepared.
Finally, we are teeing off at 9am, meeting at 8:45. I'd like everyone to check in by 8:30. I'll be hanging around hole 1 or 4 in the parking lot. I'll be in the silver honda civic. If I'm running around for any reason, my gf Sheila will be around. See you all Saturday!
