USGA-TOURNAMENT MANAGEMENT CLUB (TM Club) IN OPERATION FOR WEEKENDS
As mentioned in the club newsletter, TM club will be the TPMGCs’ tournament management system for 2018. TM club has already been used at weekend tournaments beginning in May, including the successful use of the on-course scoring mobile App during the club championship.

The link to weekend schedule and results on the current TPMGC web page has been changed. It now links to TM club for access to weekend tournament schedules, tournament sign-ups, tee times and results.

To see the September event, select the gear in the upper right and then select dashboard. On the next screen select the September event portal.

For the remaining 2017 weekend tournament schedule, sign-up, tee times, and results will be available on the tournament portal. The TM club app will allow on course scoring and monitoring of the leaderboard.

The TMClub member portal links: For September Event: Click Here

For 2017 Events October, November December: Click Here

The platform is intuitive and we are all going through a learning curve on this new cloud platform, please email me with any questions you have with the new platform.

TPMGC CLUB CARD
Recently many of you have inquired about a TPMGC Club Card. This is a new program started by the City for all members of the TPMGC (City or County). Essentially, it is an "ID" card, issued free of charge to any active TPMGC member. Its SOLE purpose is to expedite the check in process at Torrey Pines or Balboa GC. When you are checking in for a TPMGC event, simply show the card and they will scan it, and then charge you the city resident rate green fee. You can only get this card at the course at the Management Office's. You DO NOT need this card if you already have a City of SD Resident card. NOTE: This card is NOT valid for any NON TPMGC events or for public play.

TPMGC Adopts Local Rule Pertaining to Accidental Movement of the Ball on the Putting Green
When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment. The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1. This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.

Natural Areas Are Now Playable on North Course
When we are playing the North Course all Natural Areas (not flower beds) are now playable. We no longer will be taking a drop outside the Natural Areas. If your ball or swing is obstructed by a plant or other obstruction take a FREE DROP, one club length from the obstruction, no closer to the hole. Your ball must be played from the NATURAL AREA.

PROFILE ACCURACY
To All TPMGC Members When you join or renew your membership in the TPMGC, you enter some personal information that is stored in the GHIN data base of members. We frequently use this information to communicate with members and to select players to participate in tournaments. For example, we use email to contact the players for every tournament. Another example is your birth date. We use that date to confirm your age for participation in a Senior Championship, such as the upcoming 1 June event. We have noticed problems with data for a few members. This includes missing or incorrect birth dates. This may cause us to exclude you from a tournament. If you have any concerns about the accuracy of your information, please got to your Profile at http://ghin.com/eclub/Torrey_Pines_Mens_GC/ or you can check with our Membership Chairman, Larry Prosi, for assistance. We have also had some members who have told us they were not receiving our emails. These emails could come from any Board Member or from a program we use such as TPP Online. These emails are important for our members for several reasons. For example, they confirm your entry into tournaments as well as your cancellation if you do that. If you have an anti-spam or anti-junk mail system in place, it may file these emails in a folder or may reject them altogether. It is your responsibility to receive these emails. If you suspect you have this issue and need help adjusting your computer or email server settings to receive these emails, you can contact our Technology Chairman, Steve Arkin for assistance.

Marshalls needed for 2017 Torrey Pines Tournaments
Hi TPMC members, I am Gary Paluso, the new Player Assistant Chairman. Player Assistants are needed to help monitor and assist with the pace of play in TPMGC tournaments on TP North and South. One assistant is needed for the early shift 8:00-11:00 and later shift 11:30-2:30. The player assistant gets priority to play on the day they assist or can chose to save their priority to play another TPMGC Torrey event. Your help is imperative as Torrey Pines requires us to have monitors in order to keep up the pace of play. Let me know if you have an interest. Best Regards Gary Paluso - email gpaluso@gmail.com cell 858 922-8267.
