PRESIDENT'S CORNER

by Cindy Campbell

August is “Pay it Forward” Month

There is a lot going on our world today that threatens our safety, health and happiness.  Are you willing to take action and make a positive difference by “paying it forward”?  The steps are simple, yet the outcome could create good will that changes the world.  Here are the four steps:

  1. Be aware of opportunities to help someone, no matter where you are.  Perhaps you have an elderly or disabled neighbor who is too proud to ask for help with their yard work or maybe you're in a restaurant and see someone who looks like they could use some kind stranger to pay for their meal. You can change people's attitudes about the world through your unobtrusive acts of kindness.
  2. Do something nice for someone you don't know.  It should be something significant, and not for a person from whom you expect to receive something in return.
  3. Spread the word. If the person thanks you and wants to "repay" you, tell them all you want is for them to “pay it forward” to three people they don't know, and ask those three people to do something nice for three more people. The idea is to consciously increase the goodness in the world.
  4. Pay it forward. When you notice that somebody has done something nice for you, make note to practice three acts of kindness towards other people, as described in Step 3.

VOLUNTEERS / LEADERSHIP

Volunteers are important to the success of the Fort Worth/Metroplex EWGA.

"Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one's ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them"...Harriet Naylor

Feeling inspired? Want to get involved, but don't know where to start? Joining a committee or volunteering for an event is a great way to meet members. We're all busy women, but it is very satisfying, and just plain fun, to work with and get to know other women who enjoy this challenging game as much as we do.

Contact us to learn more about how you can get involved and make things happen.

Handicaps

The purpose of the USGA Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis.

Having a handicap index allows golfers to participate in more events (those that require a handicap index), have a measurable means of tracking improvement, and allows score adjustments to even the playing field when playing with golfers of different skill levels.

PACE OF PLAY: TIPS TO KEEP IT MOVING

Being a short hitter isn’t the cause of slow play, being inaccurate however does add time to the round. What you do – or fail to do – between shots sets the pace of play, not the number of strokes you take.

Following the guidelines below will keep things moving along smoothly, earning you the approval of the marshal and the gratitude of the group behind you. 

Things you can do to keep up the pace of play:

  • Before starting the round, load up your pockets with tees, divot repair tool, ball markers and an extra ball.
  • Play “ready golf”: whoever is ready to hit, goes ahead – especially shorter hitters who can’t reach the group ahead.
  • Develop a concise pre-shot routine and limit the number of practice swings you take.
  • If you think your ball may be lost or out of bounds, hit a provisional ball, so you don’t have to go back.
  • Limit the time you search for a lost ball.
  • When riding a cart, drop off your partner at her ball and proceed to yours. If you’re the one riding along, take several clubs with you and start walking down the fairway after you’ve hit instead of waiting to be picked up.
  • If you’re playing into the green, take your putter with you as well so you don’t have to go back to the cart.
  • Leave your bag or cart on the side of the green that is towards the next tee.
  • Study your putting line while others are putting and hole out instead of marking your ball.
  • The first one to put out, picks up the flagstick and replaces it when everyone is done.
  • Don’t linger on the green to mark your score card. Proceed to the next tee and mark cards there.

    And the best way to keep up the pace of play? Always, ALWAYS
     keep up with the group ahead of you!
