President’s Piece

President Martin Taylor witnessed and unlikely par last Wednesday while playing in a friendly fourball. Nat Doonan played his usual fine drive across the corner of the lake at “Splash” (par 4, 6th) only for his ball to land in the sand spreader being driven by Finbar! Unaware of his extra cargo, Finbar continued on his merry way and disgorged the ball with the sand about 40 metres from the green. After an excellent chip, Nat failed to sink the putt and finished with a rather unusual par. An interesting debate on the relevant rules ensued!
