Botrea Bowl

Botrea Bowl

Nineteen wonderful ladies competed today for the Botrea Bowl. The weather was cloudy and cool at the start... with a little bit of dampness... but the sun shone later in the day.

You may wonder why Lindsay is cuddling a hippo... well she won it at Truro yesterday in a putting competition scoring more points than had ever been scored before! Well done Lindsay!

In third place with 35 points was Sue D; in second on countback was Bev with 36 points. However Bev was just pipped by Lyn who was the winner of the Botrea Bowl.

Well played Lyn and everyone.

Tomorrow is Geoff's Captain's Charity Day which should be a lot of fun.

Well played Lyn!

Some of us were talking about the actions of Jordan Spieth at Quail Hollow when he appeared to improve the lie of where he was going to drop his ball... here is what Golf Magazine says in explanation...  
On the par-5 10th hole, Spieth drove his tee shot right of the fairway and onto a cart path that cuts through the pines. Spieth knew he would receive a free drop, and the nearest point of relief would leave his ball on a patch of straw. Spieth remembered that pine needles are considered loose impediments, which under the rules can be removed before taking a drop.
"How can I make a mistake here? What can't I do?" Spieth said to an official on the scene.
"What you can't do is move anything that's growing or fixed," said the ref.

Soon, Spieth was scraping away handfuls of straw like a Labrador clearing a spot for a nap. Ultimately, when Spieth's two attempted drops rolled back onto the concrete, he was allowed to place his Titleist onto a patch of dirt he had neatly groomed.
