    New Federal Golf Rules

    He gives us more than just health care. I thought you would enjoy this.

    These new golf rules will be in effect beginning September of 2012. Please
    share with fellow golfers.

    President BHO has recently appointed a Golf Czar and major rule changes in
    the game of golf will become effective September 1, 2012. This is only a
    preview as the complete rule book (expect 2000 pages) is being rewritten as
    we speak.

    Here are a few of the changes.

    Golfers with handicaps:
    - below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35%.
    - between 11 and 18 will see no increase in green fees.
    - above 18 will get a $20 check each time they play.

    The term "gimmie" will be changed to "entitlement" and will be used as
    - handicaps below 10, no entitlements.
    - handicaps from 11 to 17, entitlements for putter length putts.
    - handicaps above 18, if your ball is on green, no need to putt, just pick
    it up.

    These entitlements are intended to bring about fairness and, most
    importantly, equality in scoring. In addition, a Player will be limited to a
    maximum of one birdie or six pars in any given 18-hole round. Any excess
    must be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or
    par. Only after all players have received a birdie or par from the player
    actually making the birdie or par, can that player begin to count his pars
    and birdies again. The current USGA handicap system will be used for the
    above purposes, but the term "net score" will be available only for scoring
    those players with handicaps of 18 and above.

    This is intended to "re-distribute" the success of winning by making sure
    that in every competition; the above 18 handicap players will post only "net
    score" against every other player's "gross score". These new Rules are
    intended to CHANGE the game of golf.

    Golf must be about Fairness. It should have nothing to do with ability, hard
    work, practice, and responsibility. This is the "Right thing to do, and it
    gives everybody a fair shot".

    the funny thing about that is after a week everyone will be paying to play.
    the handicaps will bring your score right into line to the pay window.
