1 Princess Anne Living | November/December 2015

Up-to-Date from the General Manager

As I scribe this column in early October we are preparing for the November 7th Annual
Membership Meeting where new Directors and Officers will be elected. While we look forward
to welcoming these new leaders, I very much wish to recognize and thank outgoing Directors
Bob Barton, Liz Long, Sam Steingold and Kay Stockwell. Each of these Directors have served
the Princess Anne faithfully as committee chairs and provided valuable leadership that has truly
made a difference. Mr. Barton chaired our Golf Committee for the past three years, leading with a
transparent, inclusive and gentle team building style. Mrs. Long led the Pool Committee the past
three years. She worked tirelessly and devoted countless organizational hours as we transitioned
following Scott Evans’ retirement. Mr. Steingold chaired our Tennis Committee. He strategically
focused our Committee and Team on numerous Member benefit and facility maintenance
issues, along with revenue generating initiatives. Mrs. Stockwell chaired the Youth Involvement
Committee with a special passion to survey and garner Member feedback and she guided security
initiatives that enhanced surveillance and safety measures around our youth and babysitting areas.
If you have a chance to personally reach out to these devoted volunteers, I encourage you to extend
congratulations and appreciation.

While I wrote about outgoing President Gary Beck in last month’s issue, I would be remiss if I
did not take another opportunity to recognize his remarkable service. Very few realize the unique
demands put upon a private club volunteer president and President Beck has met each one with
a thoroughly conscientious open mind. He has a truly special blend of analytical and conceptual
leadership skills and has generously volunteered these gifts to better the Club in so many ways over
the past decade. Gary, I will forever be grateful for your mentoring and friendship and hope that
in the days ahead The Princess Anne Family can fully express our gratitude to you, Jeanne and the
Beck Family.To that end, I urge you to join us for the November 7th Annual Meeting and Great
Gatsby –Themed Soiree. Dinner is free and we look forward to expressing our appreciation.

The holiday season is just around the corner and this issue highlights our holiday festivities. Please
make plans today to enjoy your Club this special time of year. On behalf of our Princess Anne
Family of Membership and Operations Team I wish you and your family a joyous and safe holiday

See you at The Princess Anne!

TeamTeam Member Spotlight

Kenny Smith

Locker Room Attendant

With the holiday season approaching, many are looking forward to the Annual Eggnog
Social (yummy details below).This tradition has become a PACC favorite, just like Kenny

Kenny Smith started working for the Club in 1978 as the cook in the old Men’s Lounge.
Many will remember his famous burgers, so good members begged for his recipe (which
he never gave up). Kenny remembers the club was busy back then. He did not have the
opportunity to get to know Members like he does today. His fondest memories are the
Saturday cookouts outside of the Men’s Lounge. On those days, Members wouldn’t even
pick up the menu, they would just ask Kenny what he prepared, knowing it would be
delicious. He was ecstatic that they loved what Chef Kenny was cooking.

He took a brief hiatus, taking a position on a civilian contract at Fort Story, but when the contract ended in 1995, he
returned to what he refers to as his “second home.”Throughout the years Kenny has served as Men’s Lounge Cook, a grill
cook in the main kitchen, a Men’s Lounge attendant and ran the 10th Tee for a few summers.Today, he is the Locker Room
Attendant, assists in the Men’s Lounge and even steps in to assist in Kids Club 3800 when needed. When asked what has
kept him at the Club for so long, he stated “The Members. I enjoy looking after them.”

Kenny had surgery a few years back that kept him from work for several weeks. He was overwhelmed by the love he

received from Members, with some even coming to visit him at home. In his free time, Kenny loves watching game shows,

specifically The Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. His friends tell him he is really good! Originally from

Beaufort, SC, Kenny

brings his southern

hospitality and charm to Don’t Miss
the PACC team. He looks Kenny’s Annual
forward to seeing our

Members each day and Christmas Eve
we are proud to call him a

part of the PACC Family.

Another thing Kenny is EGGNOG SOCIAL
really good at...keeping
secrets. Just like the 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM
burgers, we couldn’t in the Linkhorn Lounge
wrangle to eggnog recipe
out of him! You’ll have to
come see him to try it!

The Golden Rules

The Golden Rules of Golf Will Set You Free.

Dear Rules Guru, Local Rules:
I have just discovered that in
addition to knowing the Rules of The Rules of the United States Golf Association govern play.
Golf, I must also be familiar with
the PACC’s Local Rules. I do have a 1. OUT OF BOUNDS - In addition to white stakes, lines and boundary

hole #4 to the left of the green, #5 & #6 behind the green, #11 behind
Question 1: Rule #2: Embedded Ball. the green, #12 to the right of the hole, & #16 behind the green.
My friend June and I have some
disagreement about the embedded ball rule. Last week the 2. EMBEDDED BALL - The local rule for a bal embedded anywhere

10. DISTANCE-MEASURING DEVICES – are alowed in accordance with
the Local Rule (Appendix 1).

Princess Anne Living | November/December 2015 24

“Always keep the spot where the ball last crossed between you and the hole.”

Question 3: Rule #4: Hole #1& #4: Drop Zones.
June hates hole number one and almost always goes in the water. Last week,
she got over the water and then watched her ball roll back into the water
from the other side. She usually just drops the ball wherever she wants and
hits again. I told her she had to use the drop zone. I am sure that is why the
drop zone is there. Correct?

Answer: First, note that the drop zone is an additional option to the
water hazard Rule; it is not mandatory; also it may only be used if the ball
crossed a YELLOW line.The player may also use the other options under
the Rules.To review, when a ball last crosses a yellow line the player may:
1) replay the stroke; 2) drop a ball behind the spot where the ball LAST
crossed into the hazard; 3) play the ball where it lies in the hazard. On hole
#1 and #4 there are many situations where there is no place to drop behind
the hazard, so the drop zone was added to keep the player from only having the option of replaying the stroke. As a side
note, the term “ball drop” has been changed to “drop zone” to conform with our friends at the Royal and Ancient. Note:
Always keep the spot where the ball last crossed between you and the hole.

Question 4: Rule #7: Roads Crossing Holes.
Last week, I hit my best tee shot ever on number 4 from the red tees. As I was hitting my second shot, the Blue Angels
flew over.There went my concentration. I pulled my shot to the left. It bounced across the road and came to rest on the
tee box of #5. It was a great lie, so I hit from there. My ball landed on the green and I made my putt. I was so happy to
make a par on this hole. After we got in, June mentioned there was a local rule that might have something to do with my
par! What is your ruling?

Answer: Local Rule #1 tells us which roads define “out of bounds.” Local Rule #7 tells us that if a ball crosses this
road and comes to rest on another hole, it’s considered to be out of bounds, even though its still on the golf course.This
prevents a player from playing a shot across the road. It also means that a ball that bounces across the road has the same
status as a ball that is on the road. Both are out of bounds. In your case, you played a ball that was out of bounds.The
penalty in match play is loss of hole. In stroke play, the penalty is two strokes and the error must be corrected before teeing
off on the next hole or you would be disqualified.

Question 5: Rule #8. Hole #17: I love this rule.
My husband plays the back tees and I play the red tees on hole #17. I pointed out to him that it is possible that we could
both hit our tee shots into the greenside bunker on the right of the green. Unfortunately, if he hits his bunker shot over
the green into the water he has to replay his shot from the bunker again; however, if I hit my bunker shot over the green
into the water, I do not have to replay it from the bunker. My relief would be within two club lengths from where the ball
last crossed the hazard, no closer to the hole. Right? I love this rule.

Answer: You are completely correct. A point to remember is that the status is the same for any shot played, not just the
tee shot.

Until next time, keep the questions coming! Email me at [email protected].

If you send in a question, your name will be entered into a drawing
for a free sleeve of balls!

~ By Matt Liebler, PGA

Putt, Chip or Pitch?

When a golfer hits their ball near the green, they must decide whether it is to their
advantage to putt, chip or pitch to get the ball close to the hole. Making a poor decision
can often add strokes to a golfer’s score, while a correct one that is executed properly
can keep a good round going. Knowing when it is time to putt, chip or pitch comes
with experience and also depends on which of these three golf shots the player feels the Matt Liebler, PGA
most comfortable with. My rule of thumb is: Putt when you can; Chip when you can’t
putt; Pitch when you have to.That being said, none of these shots are incorrect.The correct shot is the one that is going
to get YOU closest to the hole!


As we all know, once a golfer has managed to get his or her golf ball on the smooth putting surface, it is time to putt.
There are other instances when it may make more sense to putt the ball from off the green than it does to try to pitch
or chip. Since the putter will keep the ball on the ground, many golfers would actually rather putt a ball from the fringe.
This is particularly true if a player does not feel comfortable enough hitting pitches and chips cleanly. Often, a golfer
will hit the middle of the ball rather than underneath, causing the ball to “skull” over the green into more trouble.
Beginners facing a downhill shot onto a green, for example, have the option of putting the ball if the grass is not too
high and no hazards are in the way. Another time to perhaps choose to putt from off the green is when the player has
a slight uphill shot to the flag, but sees that the grass is low enough to allow the golf ball to roll easily. Striking the ball
with authority while putting can get it through the fringe, rolling it up close to the hole.

Chip Shot

The chip shot is unlike the pitch shot in that the ball will not have a high trajectory.The ball will spend more time on
the ground than it will in the air. It is time to chip the golf ball when the golfer is close to, but not actually on the green,
with nothing between themselves and the flagstick but open area.The chip shot will carry over the fringe or rough
around the green, which makes it impractical to putt the ball. Once the ball hits the putting surface, it will ideally roll
close to the hole. In many cases, a golfer will simply try to land their chip shot on the front edge of the green with
enough roll to carry to the hole. Chip shots do not get up into the air, meaning they can be attempted with an iron,
(specifically 7-9 irons) or a pitching wedge.The player does not cock their wrists as they take the club back to hit the
ball, and their backswing is very short, as is their follow-through. I like to describe the chip as a putting stroke with a
lofted club. Executed in the right manner, this will be enough to clear the grass around the green and land the ball on
target where it will then roll.

Pitch Shot

The pitch shot in golf is one that lofts the ball up into the air and onto the putting surface.The ball will spend more
time in the air than it will on the ground.There will be very little roll if the pitch is struck correctly.The golfer should
attempt a pitch shot when he or she needs to clear a hazard, such as a sand bunker, tall grass, water or other obstacles
that require the ball to fly over them to reach its destination. During a pitch shot, the golfer will cock their wrists
and then get under the ball and lift it into the air.The goal is to land the ball as close to the hole as possible with a
minimum amount of roll after it comes down.To accomplish this task, I recommend using the club with the most
loft in the player’s bag.The lob wedge, the sand wedge, the gap wedge and the pitching wedge are all designed with
different degrees of loft to the clubhead,and all are capable of getting the ball into the air quickly.

Charmagne Goes to the US Open!

In September of 2014 at the stringing symposium, Ron Rocchi from Wilson asked if I would string
and help at the desk at the Miami Open in March of 2015. I did and had a blast, until I asked
Nishikori his name. Yes, you heard me, I asked him what his name was when he came to pick up his
racquets. Yikes! It was only half as bad as when my co-worker asked Navritilova her name, which
went over like a lead balloon. I somehow, even after that, got asked to do the same thing at the US

The US OPEN is a whole other animal. I had never really been to New York, and keep in mind I’m
from Alabama. ;-) Do not fear, this Alabama girl did not fail to bring home some funny stories. My
favorite one for this tournament has to be the moment I noticed that a player had walked up to the
desk. I was going to look up to help him/her but I had about five more seconds left to finish what I
was doing. So…I held up my finger (without looking up) and said “hold on just one second…give
me just a second”… silence… Oh, hello Rafael Nadal. WHAT? I almost died!

The experience was fun, exciting and exhausting.The team strung a record 501 racquets in one
day.The next biggest was the day before at 484 (also a record at the time). It’s a small room
that’s run like a well oiled machine.There are 16 stringers and 6 or more desk staff at all times.
It was awesome to watch Ron from Wilson work with the players to perfect their racquets.
Verdasco came into the stringing room for over an hour and sat right next to where I was
standing. I was frozen like a stone for ummm…….an hour!

Now as some of you already know, I am now Snap Chat famous. I will try my best not to be
changed forever. I am a little snobbier but that should wear off shortly. I‘ll work on that….:-)
To wrap it up, I loved meeting (if you call taking racquets from and confirming tension
changes meeting) some of the pros and learning new things but my heart belongs here at
home with the PACC members and my family.

USTA Tournament

Despite the threat of severe weather, the USTA Select Automotive Junior Open still went on with 80 kids from all over the
Mid- Atlantic region competing. Luckily, Hurricane Joaquin ended up staying far enough off the coast that we didn’t have to
cancel the entire tournament. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the consolation draw, moved all the main draw divisions indoors
and shortened the scoring format. PACC Academy kids took home a significant amount of hardware and several more went
deep into the tournament. It was another successful tournament for PACC.Thank you to all the participants who played! Here

Spindle Cup

Our Spindle Cup Ladies Team picked up where they left off last year coming away with a 4th straight win at Farmington
Country Club in Charlottesville in September. As always, it was hard fought with many of the matches going the distance.
Our girls were just tougher and fitter in the closing stages prevailing in most of their three setters.The first day was a wash
out with rain all day, so we had to move indoors. After sweeping all four of the singles matches on Saturday morning, our
doubles teams went into the afternoon with a little cushion lead, taking much of the pressure off. We won two of the four
doubles matches on Saturday afternoon, giving us a two point lead over Farmington and CCV going into Sunday. On
Sunday, winners play winners and non-winners play non-winners with a point being awarded for each match win.
We won 3 out of the 4 singles giving us a 3 point lead going into doubles so we really only needed one doubles win to
clinch it. Instead of doing the bare minimum we decided to put an exclamation point behind it with a convincing three out
of four doubles wins giving us 12 points with 2nd place going to Farmington who had seven. I couldn’t be prouder of our
ladies who went to battle for us to keep the trophy for an astonishing 4th year in a row! Congratulations, well deserved!

John’s Tip of the Month - Using Technology and Technique
to Master Spin

We keep hearing about how much technology has contributed to the advent of power in
our game with these new racquets and strings, but it’s also made a huge difference in how
much spin we can now generate. How so? Well for one, there are racquets and strings out
there that are made just for that, to accentuate spin. Namely the Wilson “Spin Effect”
racquets that have string patterns that are less dense making the “squares” bigger.This
allows for the string to move further under the pressure of the ball at contact and then
the “snap back effect” in turn generates the spin. You may have heard of polyurethane
string or “poly” as people often refer to it.This string is more powerful and generates more
spin due to its smooth, textureless form. In order to really take
advantage of this you must make some minor modifications to
your swing pattern.

First, you must make sure that your unit turn (used to be
referred to as backswing) includes a “closed” racquet face, meaning that the strings are facing down
on your backswing like Donald Young is doing (above) on his forehand at this year’s BB&T Open
in Atlanta.

Closing the racquet face allows the strings to brush up and over the ball if you simply swing low to
high. Most recreational players swing parallel to the ground which allows for only flat, inconsistent
hits.The ready position has the racquet weight being held up by the non-dominant hand.The
dominant hand should be in a loose forehand grip. Should the ball come to the backhand side, the
non-dominant hand closes the racquet face as the unit turn is initiated, effectively changing the
grip for a backhand plus dropping the racquet head below the ball for topspin ala Serena and Simona pictured here.

Yoga at The Princess Anne

“One of the most obvious things about having a body is that it tends to stiffen and tighten the
older you get, much like a plant that is tender and supple when young and becomes hard, dry and
woody with age. With yoga, you can dramatically retard, even reverse, the tendency to stiffen as
you age. There are many physical benefits that accrue from regular physical practice. The three most
obvious are the immediate increase in your balance, strength and flexibility.”

—Yoga,The Spirit & Practice of Moving into Stillness (by Erich Schiffmann)

Nancy Hicks Basic Yoga Instructor
Nancy attended her first yoga class in 1997 at
Wareing’s gym, quickly finding herself in yoga
classes four days a week, two of those mornings
at PACC. A year later, her teacher, Kristy Brock,
suggested she pursue teacher training. She began
teaching at PACC and Wareing’s Gym in 1999,
continuing her training locally with Master Adam
Nguyen, ultimately receiving her certification from
International Yoga Institute in 2001.

Nancy sees more senior members turning to yoga for its amazing benefits. Her focus is to
make yoga doable for them by teaching basic alignment and making adjustments for them
as needed. Students tell her they feel better, which encourages her to keep teaching.

Heroes of Healthy Living

We are so proud of our senior members and would like to recognize three very special fitness
center users celebrating birthdays this November. We could set our watches to the consistency
with which we see them. They are a true inspiration. Happiest of birthdays to you!

Mr. Hugh Meredith

Age: 99 (As of birthday on November 2)
Feels: “As MacArthur said, youth is not entirely a time of life; it is a state of mind.
I believe that.”

How would you describe your personality? “Outgoing.”
How has your activity level changed throughout the years? “The first organized exercise
I did was the Royal Canadian Air Force Exercise, an 11-minute exercise routine that
I could do at home. I started this when I got out of the navy in 1949 and did it for a
few years. I didn’t do anything except for walking and golf for many years, but I was
always active. I started to exercise again in my mid-70s when I lost sight in one eye and
became concerned about my health. I came and worked out the day they opened the
first 20-foot fitness center here at the Princess Anne.” Take-Away: Make activity part of your daily life; the way you live your
What kind of exercise and activities do you currently enjoy? “I do 30 minutes on the treadmill and then 30 minutes of strength
training.” Take-Away: “The most important thing about exercise is that you’ve got to push yourself. I hired a trainer for a while
(Larissa). She pushed me to do my best.”
What is your diet like? “I never paid much attention to my diet. I ate what was prepared for me. I had two cups of coffee in the
morning and a couple of drinks a day. But I never overate. I never really had that much of an appetite.”
Take-Away: “Moderation!”
Did you ever smoke? “I smoked occasionally while I was in the Navy during World War II, but I quit as soon as I got out.”
Do you have a philosophy about health? “I never really gave it much thought. I was always very interested in my work, the world,
in people.” Take-Away: Maintain your interest in current events and stay connected with people.
What advice would you offer to someone trying to live a long and healthy life? “Be disciplined. I learned this from the Navy. Live a
disciplined life.”

What is the Royal Canadian Air Force Exercise Plan?

A series of five exercises for men (called 5BX) and 10 exercises for women (called XBX) designed by a doctor in the 1950s.
The idea is that you can fit it in every day, working all your muscle groups in a short amount of time, using no equipment.

The 5BX plan for men (takes approx 11 minutes) The XBX plan for ladies (takes approx 11 minutes)

• Toe touching/Warm-up: 2 minutes • Toe touching/Warm-up: 30 • Side leg raising: 1 minute
• Partial sit-ups: 1 minute
• Leg lifts: 1 minute seconds • Push-ups (from a kneeling

Dr. T. Roy Jarrett

“When I grow old I want to be like Hugh Meredith.”

Age: 91 (As of birthday on November 20)
Feels: “I feel like I’m in my 60s.The way I look at it, there is no expiration date on
the bottom of your foot. You are only as old as you feel. “

How would you describe your personality? “Gregarious. I enjoy people.”
How has your activity level changed throughout the years? “I was always active, always
independent. I enjoyed swimming and loved tennis and played until my knees started
to bother me in my 60s.Then I switched to golf; I always walked. I played until all of
my golfing partners passed or were unable to play. As my mom said, if you’re going to have a long life then you’d better have
young friends.” Take-Away: “I respected my body. It let me know what I could and could not do.”
What kind of exercise and activities do you currently enjoy? “I came to the gym off and on, throughout the years, but have
been coming consistently for the last 10 years. I feel like I get a better workout in the gym than in other activities, (except
for maybe tennis). In the gym you can do a lot more in less time. I do 30 minutes on the treadmill, and then 30 minutes of
strength training. Still, I’d go back to tennis if I could.” Take-Away: “I enjoyed my work, and still work. I worked hard and
played hard. I created space in my life for both.”
What is your diet like? “I have always had a healthy diet. Lots of fruit and vegetables. I never had a sweet tooth. I used to
have more meat, but now I stick to chicken and salmon. I have coffee in the morning, and enjoy alcohol socially, but never
to excess.” Take-Away: “Moderation!”
Did you ever smoke? “Never.”
Do you have a philosophy about health? “You can’t control everything, but take care of the things that you can. Get regular
check-ups and address problems as they arise, before they get out of control. Don’t put them off.” Take-Away: “It’s not the
quantity of your life that’s important. It’s the quality. Do the best with what you have.”
What advice would you offer to someone trying to live a long and healthy life? “Being involved with people and activities is so
important. Maintain an interest in what’s going on in the world. You have to be connected.”

“Youth is not a period of time. It is a state of mind, a result of the will, a quality of the imagination, a victory of courage over
timidity, of taste for adventure over the love of comfort. A man doesn’t grow old because he has lived a certain number of
years. A man grows old when he deserts his ideal. The years may wrinkle his skin, but deserting his ideal wrinkles his soul.
Preoccupations, fears, doubts and despair are the enemies which slowly bow us toward earth and turn us into dust before death.
You will remain young as long as you are open to what is beautiful, good and great; receptive to the messages of other men and
women, of nature and of God. If one day you should become bitter, pessimistic and gnawed by despair, may God have mercy on
your old man’s soul.”

Mrs. Mildred Boyd

Age: 100 (As of birthday on December 18)
Feels:“Young at heart.”

How would you describe your personality? “Positive. Upbeat. What’s the
sense of getting down? It doesn’t help.”
How has your activity level changed throughout the years? “From a young age
until now I have always felt the need to move. Now, though, it’s not as easy.
I’ve always been a dancer. I took lessons when young and taught dance at my
own studio. And I have always walked. Take-Away: “Keep moving.”
What kind of exercise and activities do you currently enjoy? “I still walk. I love
to walk outside for the fresh air. I started working out at the PACC gym in
my late 70s, and am back now in my late 90s, training with Mallory twice/
week. Take-Away: “Never stop moving. Do what you can.”
What is your diet like? “I eat everything, whatever is put in front of me. I love and have always loved vegetables, especially
green things. My favorite is ice cream! I drink coffee daily, and enjoy wine or a cocktail.” Take-Away: “Eat green things!”
Did you ever smoke? “No.”
Do you have a philosophy about health? “Enjoy life. Be blessed with what you have. And keep moving.”
What advice would you offer to someone trying to live a long and healthy life? “Keep moving. Appreciate where you are.”
