B14: BriskerGolf. Use of an Omniscorecard in addition to a BriskerGolf scorecard

Every BriskerGolf scorecard has an Omniscorecard printed on its opposite side.

Additionally, a BG App will also have an Omniscorecard, and in many circumstances this electronic scorecard must be used in place of a printed Omniscorecard.

All BriskerGolfers’ scores need to be recorded on an Omniscorecard:

If a ball is picked up before an inappropriately high number of shots has been played, the Gross number of shots played to the pick up point is to be recorded, followed by a period (full stop) on the main section of an Omniscorecard, and the Net number of shots played may be recorded as  –  (null), as in the following examples:

4–  and 5–  and 6–  and 3

A  –  (null) Net score implies a legitimate default NetBogey score, even if it may have been possible to achieve a (futile) Net-Par* on a Hole, or even a (futile) Net-Birdie**.

[*There are instances when a Net-Par score is insufficient as a posting, e.g. when a Net-Birdie or Net-Eagle has already been posted]

[**There are just two instances when a Net-Birdie score is insufficient as a posting. They are when a Net-Eagle or a Net-Albatross has already been posted!]

—————————————————————————-

However, the preferred option when posting a null Net score is to leave the Net score section BLANK, as in the following examples:

4/     and   5/     and  6/     and  3/       

Both types of null scoring are acceptable, but ‘BLANK’ is preferable to ‘ – ‘ 

—————————————————————————-

BriskerGolfers’ Gross scores always need to be recorded on an Omniscorecard, either physically in pencil on a printed Omniscorecard, or electronically on a BG App Omniscorecard, showing:

  • All competitors’ significant (appropriate) Gross scores, and their corresponding significant net scores, as in the following examples:

4 / 4  and 5 / 4  and 6 / 5  and 3 / 3

  • All competitors’ insignificant (yet legitimate) Gross scores, and their corresponding BLANK net scores, as in the following examples:

4. / 4  and 5 / 4  and 6. / 5  and 3. /

  • All competitors’ insignificant (and illegitimate) Gross scores, and their corresponding Penalty net scores, as in the following examples:

7. / P  and  5 / and  6. / P18  and  3. / P

—————————————————————————-

In the event of a significant score being made redundant soon after, by better score, the redundant (superseded) scores are to be enclosed in parentheses, both as Gross and Net figures, when using pencil & scorecard, as in the following examples:

(5) / (4) ; (5) /  (5) ; (4) / (3) ; (4) / (4) ; (3) / (3)

When a BG App is being used, the net score is always completed automatically, and in the case of superseded scores, these are recorded in parentheses exactly as cardboard Omniscorecard Net scores. i

Parentheses always imply a score that has been superseded and as a result the Net score has become the equivalent of a default net bogey score, (a gimmie) as in the following examples:

  • Either preferably:  (5)    ;  (5) /     ;  (4) /    ;  (4) /    ;  (3) /
  • Or acceptably: (5) / –  ; (5) /  –  ; (4) / –  ; (4) / –  ; (3) /

Square Brackets [  ], not parentheses, must be added to an illegal Gross score, or an illegally curtailed Gross score (i.e. curtailed at too high a score), where the net score is simply P, or P18, as in the following examples:

[5] / P  ;  [5.] /  P  ;  [4] / P18  ;  [4.] / P  ;  [3] / P18 ;  [3] P

If a ball is picked up after an inappropriately high number of shots have been played on a hole, the gross number of shots played to the pick up point must be recorded on an Omniscorecard, and the Net number of shots must be marked as a score of P  or  P18 (for Practising on the course). This will be done automatically on a BG App Omniscorecard.

Gross scores that equate to net bogeys, net double bogeys or worse always indicate practising on the course. Similarly, in certain circumstances, a Net par score may also indicate practising on the course, and in very rare circumstances, a Net birdie score may also be deemed to be practising on the course.

A Net score of P on an Omniscorecard means that an errant BriskerGolfer incurs a Penalty of two-off-the-tee from the successive tee, unless the penalty offense occurs on the 18th hole, in which case, the Penalty is that the offending BriskerGolfer becomes ineligible to benefit from Countback in the event of a tie on the 18th hole.

      Thanks Janell. I’m currently at The Open, at Royal Portrush, hoping to persuade World No.1 golfer, Brooks Koepka, to endorse my website!
      Brooks has often complained about SLOW PLAY, and now will have an opportunity to do something about it!
      I am about to make a slight modification.
      I realise that there is no point in offering a ONE or TWO shot penalty placement, for an errant golfer that has either lost or sent his/her ball out of bounds, dependent on how quickly the decision is made.
      It should should be either a one shot penalty for decisive action taken within 30 sec, or a Default Net Bogey for indecisive action, after 30 seconds of deliberation!

      A two shot penalty will inevitably lead to a poor score at the hole, and is therefore encouraging practising on a hole!
      I’m too busy to make this amendment now, but will do it very soon.
