GCAA Rules Corner: Please mark and lift your ball
By Clyde Luther
At the recent East Tennessee State Invitational, an interesting situation arose that few players are aware of yet it is important and something that occurs in almost every competition. A player from Virginia Tech hit a shot to the green just about a foot and a half behind the hole and I observed that he had not marked and lifted his ball, and at that time I realized that another player, from UNC, was about to play a pitch shot from just off of the green. At that point I approached the green and almost simultaneously, both the player from UNC and me, said "mark your ball please." Why would I as a Rules Official intervene in a situation such as this? Let's look at Rule 22, "Ball Assisting or Interfering With Play." More

Nationwide Tour    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

While he still has a lot of work to do, he arrives in Ponte Vedra Beach this week 39th. Scott Gutschewski is in a strong position to earn a return trip to the PGA TOUR as he grabbed a T2 finish to move from 27th to 18th. After missing his last five cuts, Chris Nallen fell four spots and now occupies the bubble position at No. 25. He has a $2,853 cushion over David Hearn, whose was in contention for the win in Miami only to play the last 11 holes in five-over par.
