"(This is a make-up of the 3/29 event that was snowed out. If you signed up for the original event, you are not on the new roster, unless you have signed up again)."


-------The Challenge Golf Club------

A four-star rated course by Golf Digest, this 6935-yard (from the back tees) championship par 72 layout features some beautiful holes in all of golf.

The course was created by Larry Waggoner and built on wooded rolling farmland adjacent to the Haw River. The farmland was part of the Waggoner family Farm (Hideaway Farms) and provides a scenic round as well as chance for the risk takers to score well.

The Challenge lives up to its name by offering all Tour members a great test of ability and shot-making. In addition to the greens, the perfectly manicured bermuda fairways are defined by lakes, thick hardwood forests and well-placed sand bunkers.

This is a favorite of both the Triad, Pinehurst and Triangle Golfers.

  • Voted 2nd Best New Course in North Carolina by NC
  • Best New Public Course in the Piedmont by Carolinas
  • Currently Rated Four-Star Golf Digest Rating
  • Consistently voted as one of the Top 50 courses in North
  • Host of several Mid-Am Qualifiers

Improve Your Golf Fitness To Play Better Golf During Your Round.

All From The Comfort Of Your Home and In Only 30 Minutes A Day.

From: Stephen Ladd – Founder, Renegade Golf Fitness Institute

Are you serious about your golf game? I mean obsessed with crushing your drives, sticking your irons and draining putts? Not to mention becoming top dog in your foursome?

I thought so…

No doubt you’ve noticed the rise in popularity of fitness programs for the top players on all the Tours. Maybe you’ve started a fitness program in hopes of adding more power and distance, but aren’t getting the results you were hoping for . . or even worse, you end up injured and can’t play at all.

There is one primary reason for this, and I’m going to tell you all about it. But first, let me introduce myself.

My name is Stephen Ladd, and my obsession is training golfers as athletes, and developing their bodies to better use their golf skills and play to their peak potential. I have been doing just that for over 16 years… long before the “golf fitness” craze began.

I have been trained and certified through the most prestigious golf fitness organizations in the world, including The Titleist Performance Institute and CHEK Institute.

Sanford, NC
April 26, 2014
Fayetteville's Hollis Peery enjoyed playing close to home in the Golfweek Amateur Golf Tour event held at Carolina Trace Saturday. His 83 led him to a 2-shot win in the A Flight, for his first win of the 2014 season.
Another Fayetteville golfer, Larry Hardee, had a relatively comfortable margin of victory in the Championship Flight as the only player in the entire field to break 80 with a 78.
Raleigh's Tom Vasseur had already tasted victory this season "on-Tour" in the B Flight. He took home his second trophy of the young season in the B Flight with an 83.
Jason Beeson of Clemmons' continued his strong C Flight play with a 90 that topped the flight.
In the D Flight Apex' Denis Meyer elected not to return to the course for a sudden-death shoot-out with Fayetteville's Bernard Broadnax after both finished their regulation play with 99s, conceding the win to Broadnax.
The next event on the Golfweek Tour is this coming Saturday at The Challenge Golf Club in Graham. This is a make-up of the 3/29 event that was snowed out. If you signed up for the original event, you are not on the new roster, unless you have signed up again.

Rules Review
It has been suggested that there should be a series of Rules scenarios for you to solve. So begins a series of problems titled What's the Score?
Doc Miller has graciously agreed to allow me to share these with you that he has been sending since July 2009.
I will include one each week. You should try to determine the answer based upon your knowledge of the Rules when ever possible and then use your Rule book to confirm.
There will be no trick questions or hidden information.

If you do not have a Rules of Golf book handy, go to: usga.org/Rule-Books and-Decisions

Question from week #248:

Rule 18-2 says if a player, his partner or either of their caddies, or the equipment of player/partner touches it purposely or causes his ball in play to move, except as permitted under the Rules, the player is penalized one stroke and the ball must be replaced.

Which one of the following would not result in a penalty to the player?

A. With his ball sitting in the fairway, a player accidentally moves his ball with a practice swing.

B. With his ball unmarked on the putting green, while using his towel to disperse clumps of sand from the putting green, the player moves his ball.

C. A players ball sits on pine straw on the edge of a wooded area. When removing an interfering pine cone, the ball moves about 1/4 inch down into the straw.

D. In order to identify his ball in the rough, a player uses his finger to steady his ball, while he moves some interfering blades of grass that block the view. Neither the ball is moved nor the lie of the ball altered.


Only B does not result in a penalty (R23-1).

“A” results in a 1-stroke penalty and the ball must be replaced.

For why “C” results in a 1-stroke penalty, see the definition of “moved” and Rule18-2a. The ball must be replaced. Failure to replace in either case “A” or “C” results in a 2-stroke penalty (what Tiger got nailed with).

“D” is a one stroke penalty also under Rule 18-2a for purposely touching his ball in play. Nothing to replace here, you just can’t purposely touch it unless permitted by a Rule.


Tour Weather Guidelines:

Primarily, we adhere to the same guidelines that the PGA Tour uses: If the course is open, we're going to play.

The only exception to this is that I'll never put any of you in harm's way during an event because of dangerous weather. (i.e. - lightening or severe cold and wetness).

In other words, I won't let the course "bully" us into playing where an unsafe condition might exist.

Because I arrive at every event at least two hours prior to the start time and I generally have to leave my house at least an hour before that to get to the course, there is no sense calling me just before the event, because I won't be at the office. The best avenue to take is to call the course if the weather seems threatening.

If you are on the roster for the event, and you do not get a cancellation notice from the course after calling them, you are expected to show up in time for the scheduled shotgun start.
