rules under Barak Hussein Obama
President Barak Hussein Obama has recently appointed a Golf Czar and major
rule changes in the game of golf will become effective in March 2012.
This is only a preview as the complete rule book (expect 2000 pages) is being
rewritten as we speak. Here are a few of the changes.
* Golfers with handicaps:
– below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35%.
– between 11 and 18 will see no increase in green
– above 18 will get a $20 check each time they play.
* The term “gimmie” will be changed to “entitlement” and
will be used as follows:
– handicaps below 10, no entitlements.
– handicaps from 11 to 17, entitlements for putter
– handicaps above 18, if your ball is on green, no need
to putt, just pick it up and register a birdie on your scorecard.
These entitlements are intended to bring about fairness and, most
importantly, equality in scoring. In addition, a Player will be limited to a
maximum of one birdie or six pars in any given 18-hole round. Any excess must
be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or par. Only
after all players have received a birdie or par from the player actually making
the birdie or par, can that player begin to count his pars and birdies again.
The current USGA handicap system will be used for the above purposes, but the
term “net score” will be available only for scoring those players
with handicaps of 18 and above.
This is intended to “re-distribute” the success of winning
by making sure that in every competition, the above-18-handicap players will
post only “net score” against every other player’s gross score. These
new Rules are intended to CHANGE the game of golf.
Golf must be about Fairness. It should have nothing to do with
ability, hard work, practice, and responsibility. Mr. Obama feels ..this is
the Right thing to do.”
