sixcat 2,395 Author Report Share Posted October 11, 2022 Something of note for those that don't normally follow high school golf. VHSL runs and controls tournament play through the end of Regionals. The Virginia State Golf Association (VSGA) runs and controls state tournaments. It may not seem like a key distinction but it's quite significant. VHSL routinely implements a maximum score per hole policy to speed up play, limit blowup holes, and not have kids shooting their body weight. VHSL maximum score per hole is typically double par so, an 8 on a par 4 would be the maximum score anyone could get on any particular par 4. A 6 on a par 3 and a 10 on a par 5, so one and so forth. VSGA enforces a strict "USGA rules govern play" policy so their is no maximum score per hole. Everyone must play the ball through the hole. That has been reflected in some of the scores, especially at Olde Mill. The dramatic elevation changes, forest surrounding the golf course, forced carries, and abundance of water have led to some whopping scores. It also means rounds are extremely slow so, even though the first guys are teeing off at 9:00am, they won't finish until close to 3:00pm. Considering the better players typically tee off ahead of the weaker players, play will get significantly slower as the day progresses. I'll try to keep scores posted as much as I can but it could be nearing dark before play concludes. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
