This will take place at The Art and Music Center in Escondido, where Hal was a volunteer, on a date and time to be determined shortly.

Tie Breaker system adopted for all weekday Tournaments
In order for us to stay within our subsidy budget we are now going to break ties for first place using the a tiebreaker system available to us from our Tournament Players Program . If there are ties the software will break all ties using the back nine as a beginning point for tie breaks. TPP uses the USGA tie breaker...starting with the back 9 holes (net), then the back 6 holes (net), then the back 3 holes (net) and then the Back 1 hole (net) then if we need it a coin toss. Handicaps for the tie breakers are 50% for the 9 hole, 33% for 6 hole, 16.7% for 3 hole, 5.55% for 1 hole..all handicaps are rounded 0.5 or higher is a stroke.

Posting of Tournament Scores
POSTING OF SCORES FOR ALL PLAY AT TPMGC EVENTS WILL BE POSTED BY THE TOURNAMENT COMMITTEE USE OF “T” SCORES The USGA is reviewing and tightening up the usage of T scores by Clubs. T scores are only supposed to be used for the club’s significant tournaments. However, more and more clubs are routinely posting local tournament scores as T scores, which can dilute the effectiveness of what T scores are supposed to do, i.e. be a check on player performance. The issue is that the number of T scores a player has in the last 12 month period can significantly reduce the effectiveness of the T score review. Therefor for TPMGC to comply with the new USGA policy clarification with respect to club T scores TPMGC will only use T scores for our Board Tournaments, and will they will be posted by the tournament committee. No member should post any T score at a TPMGC event or any play at Torrey Pines Golf course. TPMGC Board tournaments are: SCGA BB of Partners Qualifiers weekend and weekday TPMGC Senior Championships weekend and weekday TPMGC Club Championship weekend TPMGC Turkey Shoot weekend and weekday .....Marc Sorensen Handicap Chairman

Marshalls Needed!
Torrey Pines has requested the club improve pace of play and use marshals to aid in this. In response, the Board has formed a new position, Pace of Play Chair. We need 2 marshals for each TP tournament, one for early play, and one for late. Each marshal will be assured a tee time in Torrey Pines tournaments, an early tee time for the later play marshal, and a late tee time for the early play marshal. This is a great way to support the club in this important matter, ensure you will have a tee time, and make tournaments at Torrey more efficient and enjoyable for all. Please email me at kmclean@tpmgc.org if you would like to serve as a marshal, and indicate if you would prefer early or late. We will hold a training session on how to marshal, and share thoughts on how to make it work well for both marshals and players. Thanks. Kevin McLean Chair, Pace of Play Committee TPMGC
