NEWSLETTER MARCH 2014 Vietnamese

Dear Golfers,

The weather continues to be sensational for golf in Danang! You may have noticed that the practice range and golf course are not as busy as they were in February. The Korean Winter Golf Camp has ended and though they were a pleasure to have here for the past couple months, it has eased the tee time demand. We are still in high season but things will begin to slow down as we move through the month of March which is good news for those of you who like to play fast and score low! On the subject of scoring low; it should be noted that Ms. Ha Na Jang, one of our LPGA Winter Campers, shot a 10-under-par 62 from our blue tees here at DGC during her 2 month stay with us! She also finished 14th in last week’s HSBC Women’s Champions tournament at Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore and earned $22,542 USD! We are proud that her hard work here at Danang Golf Club is paying off at golf’s highest level!

February was an amazing month for hole-in-one's! In this shortened month, there were 7 hole-in-ones!! It looks like the 2014 is going to be a lucky year here at DGC! Congratulations to: Mr. Vu Anh Tuan, Mr. Paul Hellyer, Mr. Hwang Seong Nam, Mr. Pham Van Chat, Mr. Kim Hya Ran, who won a return ticket to any destionation in Asia sponsored by Vietnam Airlines, Mr. Tran Van Luong who won 2 night stay at Fusion Maia sponsored by Fusion Maia Danang and 2 return tickets sponsored by Vietjet Air, Ms. Lim Ae Ran who won 42 inch 3D TV sponsored by LG Company. Nice shots!

The Seimatic Pairs Tournament was held last weekend at Montgomerie Links on Saturday afternoon March 8th and Danang golf Club for the final round on Sunday morning. It was a fun two-man team format with great prizes!

We will hold our Club Championship on the 29th and 30th of this month! The Club Championship will be held in conjunction with the Mercedes Trophy Qualifier so there is a Mercedes E-Class to be won by some lucky player who can make a hole in one on Sunday! Qualifying players will also play for a chance to advance to the country finals later in the year. The Danang Golf Club Championship is known as the first Major Championship of the year here in Vietnam so don’t miss it! For those of you who live outside Danang, please take advantage of the deep discounts on accommodations offered by The Ocean Villas and The Pullman Resort! All tournament and accommodation information can be found below.

Sincerely,
JOE MILLAR

From the superintendent

Dear Golfers,

With the daylight hours becoming longer and temperatures getting warmer, the turf grass is starting to respond to both cultural and mechanical maintenance practices.

All playing surfaces have been verti-cut to help promote new turf growth at least once during the past 4 weeks. The fairways have received two verti-cuts with very positive results. Selected fairways have been reshaped to help improve playability and visually enhance the playing corridors.

The weeding of native areas is now completed. Regular maintenance will now be utilized to control any germination of the exotic weeds that may appear.

With the Club Championships less than a month away, the maintenance department is concentrating on presenting the course in the best possible condition for the event. The leveling of bunker floors and faces is expected to start in the next few days in an effort to minimize bad lies and plugged balls in the faces.

Good golfing.

Thank You,

Dan Brown
Golf Course Superintendent.

RULE OF THE MONTH

Rules regarding the use of the long putters and anchjoring them against your body have been in question for some time now. Please see the letter that I received this week from The PGA of America. In 2016, the Rules of Golf will no longer allow players to anchor the club when making a stroke as players do when using the long style putters. The PGA of America wanted this rule to be waved for amateur players for a while longer so that amateurs who used this method could enjoy the game more. In the end, the USGA disagreed. Please see below:

Dear Joseph,

I am writing to inform you that the United States Golf Association (USGA) has decided not to extend the implementation date of Rule 14-1b (anchoring) for amateur golfers beyond Jan. 1, 2016. Last month at the USGA Annual Meeting in Pinehurst, N.C., PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem and I outlined our proposal for a "grandfather" period to provide amateurs with more time to adapt to playing without an anchored stroke.

Both the PGA of America and the PGA TOUR have consistently shared strong feelings about this matter with the USGA and we appreciated the opportunity to formally present our views before the USGA's full Executive Committee.

While we are disappointed with the USGA's decision not to extend the implementation date beyond Jan. 1, 2016, I know that all PGA Professionals are committed to helping amateur players choose a permissible putting stroke that will help them continue to enjoy the game well into the future.

Indeed, PGA Professionals go to work every day knowing that we are the most respected instructors in the game. This is a new challenge and opportunity that we will embrace, and along with helping PGA TOUR players, we will assist golfers of all abilities in advance of the implementation date of Rule 14-1b.

Finally, we believe that one of the profound outcomes that emerged from the discussion of "anchoring," is that both the PGA of America and the PGA TOUR have a more meaningful seat at the Rules table for future decisions affecting the game. We strongly believe that such enhanced communication among our respected organizations is essential to the long-term viability of golf.

Regards,
Ted Bishop, PGA
38th President
