Last week Advanced PGA Professional and Golf Academy Director Craig Thomas joined the likes of Mark James (Past Ryder Cup Captain) as a Brand Ambassador for Glenbrae Golf - the producer of Britain's finest knitwear.

Craig said "It's a privilege to be an ambassador of such a great brand and to join a team which includes Mark James is truly an honour".

Craig will now be wearing these fine garments during the remaining 2014 season and throughout the 2015 season. If you would like to find out more about how you can order Glenbrae products please contact the Academy Shop - click here.

Craig Thomas has again been seen in the local press, this time National Club Golfer helping to spread the power of golf for the impaired. If you have not managed to pick up a copy at your local Golf Club, here are a couple of links that show the article on pages 36 and 37 as well as a video (click on the page numbers and video above to view).

Over the last week we have seen a huge amount of rain fall, thus causing bunkers to flood and many golfers to ask us what the ruling is if the ball comes to rest in a bunker which is full of water, So, here it goes:

What happens if a ball lands in a bunker full of water?

So, what can a player do under the Rules when a bunker is completely covered by water? Decision 25-1b/8 clearly sets out that they have four options:

  1. The player may play the ball as it lies
  2. Drop the ball in the bunker without penalty at the nearest point, not nearer the hole, where the depth of the casual water is least
  3. Drop the ball behind the bunker under penalty of one stroke; or
  4. Deem the ball unplayable and proceed in accordance with Rule 28

Note that the third option above incurs a penalty of one stroke and the ball must be dropped outside the bunker, keeping the point where the ball lay in the water in the bunker directly between the hole and the spot on which the ball is dropped, with no limit to how far behind the bunker the ball may be dropped.

We hope you enjoy the rest of the newsletter and have a great weekend.
