Junior Schedules Are Busy!

Mitsy Duarte, 8, qualified for the Junior World Tournament (Girls 9-10) by shooting a +6 42. Esther Lee also shot a 42 but lost out on qualifying because of the possibility of a scoring error by one of the qualifiers. The error was not caught until the scoring was closed so there was nothing the SCPGA could do because parent’s did not find out about the error until they went home and saw the results and hole scores of the card in question. This is a good lesson for the player’s to become more aware of the score’s being posted after each hole. It is the player’s responsibility to get the score correct. In the event of an error, it is important for the scorer to discuss the error in question and correct the mistake. If a solution cannot be agreed to, the scorer should refuse to sign an incorrect scorecard. This is important issue, especially as young player’s are learning to play the game and learn the importance of correct score keeping.
