Rule of the Day

33-2a/12 Internal Boundary Between Holes

Q:
It is proposed to install boundary stakes between two holes as a safety measure. It would prevent players playing a "dog-leg" hole from driving onto the fairway of another hole in order to cut the "dog-leg." Is it permissible to establish such a boundary?

A:
Yes. For the recommended status of such boundary stakes, see Decision 24/5.

golf-history 1930 Longest 18-Hole Match in U.S. Amateur History

Sep 23

The 1930 U.S. Amateur is best remembered for Bob Jones’ victory to secure the historic Grand Slam, but the championship is in the USGA record books for another reason. In the second round at Merion Cricket Club in Ardmore, Pa., Maurice McCarthy Jr. needed 10 extra holes to defeat George Von Elm, a record that was matched by Michael Eiserman in his 28-hole victory over Patrick Honeycutt in the 1960 U.S. Junior Amateur but has never been broken. The second-round victory wasn’t McCarthy’s only dramatic battle at the 1930 Amateur. He made a hole-in-one in stroke-play qualifying to earn a spot in the playoff, won the sudden death playoff and then outlasted Watts Gunn in 19 holes in the first round. McCarthy was defeated by Jess Sweetser in the third round.
