Rule of the Day

13-2/24 Area of Originally Intended Swing Improved by Breaking Branch; Area of Swing Finally Used Not Affected by Branch

Q:
A player, intending to play in a certain direction, took a practice backswing for a stroke in that direction and broke a branch impeding his backswing. The player then decided to play in a different direction. The area of his intended swing for a stroke in this new direction was not improved by the breaking of the branch. In such circumstances, would the player incur a penalty under Rule 13-2?

A:
Yes. The player was in breach of Rule 13-2 as soon as he improved the area of the originally intended swing. The penalty is not avoided if he subsequently plays in another direction, even if the breaking of the branch had no effect on the area of the swing for a stroke in the new direction.

golf-history 1920 Birthday Of Julius Boros

Mar 03

two-time U.S. Open champion,Born in Fairfield, Conn., Julius Boros didn’t turn professional until 30, but quickly made an impact by earning his first victory in the 1952 U.S. Open. Boros used a third-round 68 to key a four-stroke victory over Ed “Porky” Oliver. Eleven years later, at 43, Boros collected his second Open victory, a playoff win over Jacky Cupit and Arnold Palmer at The Country Club (Brookline, Mass.). Boros won his third major at the 1968 PGA Championship at 48. Boros was later asked if he planned to retire at the end of the season. “Retire to what?” Boros said. “I already play golf and fish for a living.”
