Get Rewarded for Participation

Once again, we will be tracking participation in LPGA Amateur Golf Association Tucson events. At the end of the year, we will hold a drawing for a fabulous prize! Each time you enter one of our events you will get one entry into the drawing. Don't worry! We'll keep track of it all. Fun events, ringers, competitions, leagues, social events, everything counts! The winner will be recognized at our Annual Business Dinner in the fall.

In line with LPGA Amateurs Chapters around the country, we're going to broaden our outreach, publicize our events more widely, and welcome guests at all events.  All levels of golfers who want to learn, play, and enjoy golf for business and fun are welcome to play at chapter events.  Your chapter hosts golf outings, social, and networking events throughout the year.  Chapter members are provided with the opportunity to participate in local, regional, and national championships and events.  Whether you’re a beginner taking your first lesson or an experienced lifelong golfer, you’ll find a warm welcome from our members. 

Five reasons to join:
-  Largest amateur women's golf organization in the US
-  Connect with new friends who share your love of the game
-  Make useful business contacts
-  Save $$ and let us organize your round at courses across the Tucson area
Have fun!!

Your chapter is a volunteer-run organization. Volunteers serve on the board to plan and hold many events throughout the year, but it takes many volunteers behind the scenes to make our chapter a success. The Tucson Chapter welcomes volunteers to  work with board members, plan and manage events and assist tournament directors on competition days.

Your chapter is a volunteer-run organization. Volunteers serve on the board to plan and hold many events throughout the year, but it takes many volunteers behind the scenes to make our chapter a success. These key volunteers help keep things running smoothly during the year:

  • Sponsors: Joanne Dowdy organizes and finds new sponsors that support our events. Joanne also tracks member participation for recognition at the end of the year and she is always happy to help with other events, too!
  • Handicap: Sandi Rabrich, handicap chair, provides handicap indices to the event organizer for competitions that are flighted or require an index. She is also our AGA handicap liaison for members that wish to  hold their handicap with AGA. She can answer any question about handicaps. If you don't have a handicap, contact Sandi!
  • AGA Rep: Jacki McCue is our AGA representative and organizes the AGA medallion qualifier. Jacki has also served on the board in many positions
  • Recordkeeping: Janet West prepares minutes of our board meetings and keeps the chapter records organized

This year's LCQ tournament director of the day, Liddy West, made sure all went smoothly and was assisted by Terry Rosales and Janet West.

Please thank our volunteers when you see them. Volunteers are what make our chapter a success. If you would like to volunteer, contact any Board Member.

February Rule of the Month

New Rule: Under Rule 13.1d, there is no longer a penalty if a player (or opponent) accidentally causes the player’s ball to move on the putting green.
 
Reasons for Change:

The shape, slope and condition of many putting greens today increase the chances that a ball at rest on the putting green might move, and it can be difficult to determine whether a player caused the ball to move or whether the ball was moved by wind or other natural causes.

When a ball moves while the player is doing nothing more than taking normal actions to prepare for a stroke, it can seem unfair for the player to be penalized.

Most “ball moved” situations occur on the putting green, involve minimal movement of the ball, frequently occur when the player is taking reasonable actions to prepare for a stroke and the ball can be easily replaced.

These considerations are not the same when the ball lies off the putting green, and so the penalty continues to apply (with exceptions, such as accidentally moving a ball during search) to a player or opponent in those circumstances to reinforce the principle that the ball should be played as it lies and that players should continue to exercise care when near to a ball in play.

 

How Do I Join The Two Club?

The Two Club is a golf group that anyone can join. The only requirement for membership is that a gross “2” is scored while playing with a Two Club member or members.

  1. Score a gross “2” (usually a birdie on a par 3) AND ASK if anyone is a member of the Two Club.
  2. If so, pay each Two Club member $1.00. You are then a member for life.
  3. Once a Two Club member, whenever you score a “2”, you must ask if anyone in the group is a Two Club member. If there are any, EACH person owes you $1.00. Thereafter, if you are playing with someone who scores a “2”, you either receive $1.00 from them, if they wish to join, or YOU pay them $1.00 if they are already a member.
  4. If you score a “2” on a hole and ARE NOT playing with a Two Club member, YOU CANNOT JOIN THE CLUB yet.

When you have joined, contact Sandi Rabrich at srabrich@gmail.com and she will give you a “2 club” pin to display proudly on your golf bag.
