Now imagine a long tear, razor thin, in the upper left corner sky that measured 6 inches. Due to the fact that the damage was in a very minor area of the painting and that once restored it would be almost imperceptible to the naked eye, the loss of value would be minimal at most. If that same damage took place through the face and body of the figure, then you might begin to see some depreciation in value.
But again, this all depends on how the work was restored and how much inpainting was required to fix it. I have seen instances where a painting sustained a tear, and once the opening was closed, the two sides fit perfectly together and no inpainting was necessary … unless you knew the work had been torn, you would never be able to tell … so, was the value altered? That will all depend on who you ask. In fact, the painting with the loss in the central area will, more than likely, have a huge decrease in value … and depending on which parts of the main area were affected, might actually be considered a total write-off.
Remember, that people are buying a Ridgway Knight not only for the beauty of the whole image, but his technical ability to paint the human figure … if a large part of the figure is no longer the work of Ridgway Knight, where is the value? What about a 6 inch hole and the piece is still attached?

If most of the original paint is still intact and the restorer can successfully repair the work, then loss of value will be less. Once the work has been completely repaired a more accurate assessment of value can be made. Finally, what about works that sustained severe tears or were actually cut in two?
Years ago I went to view an auction in London and in a small glass case were two paintings by the American marine artist James E. Buttersworth the image is on our web site: American Packets in Coastal Waters. After I opened the case and carefully examined the works I noticed that they were not a pair of paintings, but in fact one painting that was cut in half! When looking at the tacking edges the sides of a canvas that are used to hold the painting on its stretcher and are usually left blank of both works you could not only see paint, but there was a boat that was cut in half … and when I put the two works back to back, they lined up perfectly.
We bought the paintings and gave them to our conservator. While it took months to repair the piece, when finished, the fact that the painting had once been cut in two was imperceptible. The painting was acquired by a major collector of maritime paintings …aside from its beauty; one of the determining factors for its purchase was the story behind the restoration of this fairly important painting by Buttersworth.
Yes, the painting was sold for far less than a similar work in perfect condition … but the painting was not worthless.
Ace! A guide to the proper etiquette after landing that magical hole-in-one
The two main ships in the painting were in great condition and the ship that was visible on the tacking edges was a very small paddle-wheeler in the distance. In the weeks to come we will be adding paintings by Eugene Boudin, Jean B. Corot, Emile Munier, and Edouard Cortes. Look to the clouds for any help of strength and direction. The first real test of your nerve and golfing skill. Favor the left side for the drive as bunkers lurk down the right. As the green sits at an angle over the water, remember to take more club the further on the right the flag is cut.
If you can get a big drive away so that it reaches the top of the hill near the lone tree in the fairway, the hole becomes so much easier. Although there is no sand on the front left, beware of the grass bunker which is tricky to chip from. Give your drive a rip down the hill, as this par-5 is reachable in two despite the awkward cross bunkers.
Good luck! Although the bunkers that eat into the fairway look dangerous, they are easy to clear. Be more careful with the quartet of traps by the green. If the flag is on the front level, avoid going onto the top tier as your putt will be a nightmare. A strategic par-5 which offers two routes. The safe and conventional way is to follow the dog-leg, but another possibility is to fire over the copse of trees on the right and cut the corner off. Only recommended for big hitters though!
Probably the most difficult short hole on the course, where you should be pleased with a par. Even though you might be tempted to take plenty of club to clear the deep bunkers, chipping down from the back banks is still tricky. It is best to aim down the left side on this inviting drive down the hill, as the hole sweeps balls to the right on landing. The approach up to the shallow but wide green needs to be bold, as all the serious trouble is short.

A big drive on this semi-blind hole should roll down the massive downslope and gain an extra 30 meters, from where the green is easily in range. Choose your club carefully as the green is well above the level of the fairway. An attractive short hole surrounded with deep bunkers. It looks more dangerous from the tee than reality as the ring of front bunkers is actually well short of the green. A hole to be cautious with since the threat of clearing the water can make some hit their drives too far into the bunkers across the dog-leg.
The perfect shape would be a left-to-right shot to follow the line of the fairway. Even though there are two bunkers waiting for your approach, the left side is the safest line. An unusual short hole because there are no sand bunkers just four grassy hollows that can snag any ball hit short. Because they are awkward to chip close from, be sure to take plenty of club and rely on your putting game. If you play it sensibly as a genuine three shot hole by laying up short of the ditch and pitching on, a par should not be a problem.
Most, if not all private courses are very much in accordance with etiquettes and then some, but it's great. Hope you find your good pace. August 26, at PM DP, If the course in question is not enforcing pace of play then there is not much you can do. I myself have stopped playing golf on weekends and holidays. Many times I have been on public golf courses in the past where the round would last 6 hours because of lack of enforcement. If you have to play on these days then try to get the very first tee time of the day if possible. This, in my opinion, is the only solution.
Too many golf courses just don't care to be honest with you. August 27, at AM I call the pro shop and let them deal with it. You might have to play with some of them in the future, so you want to keep cool heads. August 27, at AM Call Marshall Call pro shop Ask them to play through Skip them and just miss a hole Light a stogie and sip a fine craft beer Sit back and enjoy yr company. August 27, at AM Cell phone call to the clubhouse may work.
If they care, they will send somebody out to monitor play. What they fail to realize is that it ticks off everyone behind them, they develop a reputation as a slow play facility, and that is a SURE way of decreasing revenue. Matthew B. Ada, MI.

August 27, at PM Unfortunately, there isn't an effective way to address this directly. Slow golfers that won't let others play through aren't going to change their ways when approached directly by other golfers. If this occurs often at a course you frequent, address it with management such as the head pro.
A HIGH-QUALITY EXPERIENCE IS ASSURED
They might then increase use of on-course rangers to manage pace of play. Alternatively, most private clubs don't seem to have nearly the amount of pace of play problems that public courses have. Most public courses have a slow play policy and recommend foursomes play in 4. We play in the mornings and most all groups play under the 4. We play a fivesome which our course allows in our morning men's group and can play in 3.
We play ready golf, which a lot of golfer's do not understand. Afternoons at public course seem to be the worse. I try to relax, enjoy the beauty of the courses I am playing and not worry when I play tournaments, because it definitely is a big change from the norm for me. Cheers, Chuck LWilliams Wiltshire uk. August 27, at PM Shotgun. I was playing in a medal today and I actually gave up after 9 holes because the group two holes in front of us took 3 hours to do 9 holes. On our home course. The club house even sent a buggy out to tell them to hurry up.
But if anything this made them slower. DHall Arizona.

August 27, at PM The sooner you say something the better. Play through as fast as you can. Whether you run into another group or not is then irrelevant because you be asking them to play through as soon as you catch them also.
My group generally keeps an eye out behind us to see if we have a single or double coming up on us. We'll happily let them play on. Matthew S Reynoldsburg,. August 28, at PM I think asking to play through is the best way. You could try different tee times. I rarely see a ranger come out and move people along. I've been fortunate enough that I've been waived to play through without having to ask. My last time out it was so backed up on the back 9 that I went back on played the front 9 again since it was later in the evening.
My favorite is when there is slow play by guys teeing off from the blues when they should be teeing off from the forward tees. Very frustrating. The problem was not just the group in front of us though. It was backed up for a number of groups.
