Last Week’s Quiz.

This actually happened to me way back when I was playing on the South African Sunshine Tour. It was during the South African Masters at Kensington GC. We were playing a threesome and one player asked another what club he hit.  The player answered “A 6 iron.”  What is the penalty if any, and who gets it?

Answer: Both players are assessed a two-stroke penalty.  One for asking for advice and the other for giving it!  Thanks to all the people who entered.  The winner is Amir Nikravesh of Switzerland.  Please send me a video of your swing from both a rear and front angle. I will be happy to give you a free critique!

Can I have a No Backswing Golf Swing?

This weeks quiz involves an incident that happened to me in a tournament in South Africa.  It was my second tournament as a golf professional, and it occurred during the second round of the South African Open at East London Golf Club.  My ball was in a small bush, and I did not want to take a penalty drop.  So I put my club behind the ball and without any backswing, scraped the ball forward and out of the bush.  Did I incur a penalty?  And if so, what was it!

The only valid form of entry is via email to melsolegolf@gmail.com.  Get your answers in quickly to win a free one-hour lesson at either the SC, NC or NY locations.  Good Luck!
