Rule of the Day

19-2/1 Ball Stopped by Player's Foot Moves When Foot Removed

A player making a stroke on the bank of a bunker hits the ball to the top of the bank. The ball then rolls down the bank and is accidentally stopped by the player's foot. The player removes his foot and the ball rolls into the footprint. What is the ruling?

The player incurs a penalty of one stroke (Rule 19-2) and must replace the ball on the spot at which it came to rest against his foot. A further penalty under Rule 18-2a (Ball at Rest Moved by Player) would not be appropriate in the circumstances provided the player replaces the ball. If the ball is not replaced before the player makes his next stroke, the failure to replace the ball is considered a separate act (see Decision 1-4/12) and he loses the hole in match play or incurs an additional penalty of two strokes in stroke play under Rule 18-2a, for a total penalty of three strokes.

golf-history 1920 Alexa Stirling Claims third Consecutive U.S. Women’s Amateur Titles

Oct 07

Alexa Stirling of Atlanta, Ga., became the first player since Beatrix Hoyt to capture three U.S. Women’s Amateur Championships in a row when she defeated two-time champion Dorothy Campbell Hurd, 5 and 4, in the final at Mayfield Country Club in Cleveland. For the first time, the final was a scheduled 36-hole match. Stirling was easily the favorite as the week began. In the final against Hurd, who in 1909 had become the first in history to win the U.S. Women’s Amateur and British Women’s Amateur in the same year, Stirling was 5 up after nine holes and the match ended on the 32nd green. Hurd would go on to win a third U.S. Women’s Amateur in 1924. It was the final Women’s Amateur title for Stirling, who did reach the final again in 1921 and 1923.
