Big Break Skills Challenge
This skills challenge will be held on the Hilton Head Lakes Par 3 Short course on Wednesdays at 5:30pm throughout the year. Price is $15. Please RSVP to Susan Tymczyszyn at firstname.lastname@example.org
The game of golf can be broken down into two elements: the long game and the short game. In the long game, power and distance are usually required so that the player's ball can approach the putting green in as few strokes as possible. In the short game, the skills needed are more finesse-related due to the need for accuracy. Not everyone has the ability to get to the green in regulation, so the short game becomes very important in avoiding the eights+ on your scorecards.
Most people think 50 yards in for the short game, but we’ll focus on 82 yards in with three types of challenges:
Hitting from Tee to Green on short holes (65-82 yards, holes 1-3). You start at hole 1 and play like a regular Par 3 (also hole 2 & 3). Your goal here is to try and hit the green in regulation for a two putt to make a par. Think about your shot (where do want to aim so you are not in trouble if you miss, away from the water, bunkers). If being short is better than going long, don’t use a club that can get you long.
Chipping Stations from various lies and trouble spots (holes 4, 5 and 6). You can practice until the next group comes. On hole 4 there are two stations for chipping. At the tee box you will be chipping to the hole 5 green, then you’ll head to the hole 4 green and chip over the bunker. Hole 5 has three chipping stations, two are by the left trees and the third is after the green by the tree. Hole 6 has 2 chipping stations, one behind the bunker and side it.
Putting Stations from different areas of the greens (holes 4 and 6). Practice until the next group comes. The types of stations are from off the green and all angles and distances. Be sure to do these putting stations while you are at that hole doing your chipping.
All you need to bring is two golf balls, your glove, and your short game clubs (putter, sand and pitching wedge – or a longer iron if you prefer). This is a very short walking course, no carry bags or pull carts needed. Use your Golf Buddy Bag or just carry your three/four clubs. It will take less than an hour to do the challenge, depending on attendance.

New Golf Rules: Major Changes effective January 1, 2019
As if the rules of golf were ever easy to fully comprehend, the USGA has introduced changes to the Rules of Golf that went into effect January 1, 2019. Don't fret! These rules changes have been noted for helping make the game of golf easier to understand and more fun to play! Golfers at all levels are still trying to grasp the scope and breadth of the rules. There will be, of course, a learning curve, as players get used to and appreciate the 2019 Rules Changes. If you don't have The Official Guide to the Rules of Golf, find a chapter board member to get your free copy.

Our Chapter Rules Chairperson Berenice Fedder
Sometimes in golf your shot will put you in a situation you aren’t sure what the rule is. Fortunately, one of our chapter members is going to help us all understand the rules better. If Berenice doesn’t know she will find out. So, send her an email describing the situation you were in (including the course and hole if possible) so everyone can learn. We can talk about course etiquette as well (no names will be mentioned). Your Q&A’s will be put in our monthly newsletters and/or posted on our website. Berenice’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Golf education and player development is a very important part of the golfing experience. Even if you are not interested in competitions, all golfers should want to improve their knowledge in some way and their golfing skills. This makes the game more enjoyable for you and the ones you are playing with. Although we might not be able to tailor or target the specific needs of every chapter member, we are committed to finding you the best options so you can achieve your goals and increase your knowledge of the game. Please familiarize yourself with these topics with the information sheet. For our chapter, Education will focus on these topics:
