That's what I thought mate...
Full story....
Smithy and I were having a piss funny day with B1 and B2.... who were having certain issues that didn't represent their true ability as golfers... B1 was hitting hooks instead of his usual draw...
When we arrived at 9th tee B2 was busy issuing instructions to B1 about how he wanted tee shot hit so that he woild have a chance if putting their 2nd shot close to the green on the par 5.... there was much laughter and mirth and B1 duely smashed drive to a point middle of the fairway inside of 200 to hole....
I was the following player of tee and when I noticed B1's error said to B2 you gave him to many instructions etc... more laughter and muttering and B2 hit from correct tee...
When we finished hole discussion was held about score on the hole.... my gut feeling was that there was a penalty applicable but got out voted... wasn't that worried because B1 and B2 were not going to win anything apart from the Naga...
Subsequent discussions with B1 and B2 revealed that whilst playing away at another clubs open day a similar issue occurred... senior player in that group convinced all that there was no penalty........

B1 and B2 now know the correct rule and are appreciative of the input...

B2 did return favour to B1 with a hooked tee shot that rattled around in a gum tree and came to rest up the the gum tree... luckily I could see tip of ball in amongst bark... after some thought and scrambling ball was retrieved and put back into play with correct procedure and penalties.... not to be outdone B1 put his subsequent shot 6 inches from out of bounds fence...

 

B1 must play from the correct tee.  Since B2 played it is 4 PS (2 wrong tee; 2 incorrect order)  B1 must correct before teeing off from next tee, else DQ

It is amazing in mixed foursomes how many times my partner will hit the ball out of bounds from the tee, requiring me to hit from the men's tees.  Adds a certain level of difficulty to the hole.

One of the guys I work with played it on the weekend, partnering his wife. She put one tee shot OOB and they lost by 0.5

I’m not sure he’s had the balls to relate the same story again to her.

A long time ago in OZ women were “Associate Members” or generally “Associates”.
A mate of mine used the following term..
“Mixed Fearsome with an Attrociate “ , I don’t know if that description was widely used.

Penalties don't alter the order of play.

The other dude is hitting three from the correct tee.

 

 

Yeah I know about how penalties apply ib foursomes...
Yes other dude rehit tee shot from correct markers...
Discussion was held about if penalty was applicable

 

 

So what bump said

 

I hope you have all read #23

 

The original player MUST replay from the correct tee.

Played our mixed foursomes championship last weekend and only had to hit one tee shot from the ladies, boy how much easier is it with a decent head start from the forward tees ?
