Forum: Rules Of Golf

Ya gotta know the rules

  1. Slope ratings

    Dunno if this is the right place to post this question, but.... What does a Slope rating sheet look like. I'm curious to know what is rated and how it's rated in coming up with a slope for a course. I guess my ulterior motive is to second-guess the slopes of various courses, but it just seems...

  2. Monty??

    I saw that Colin Montgomerie was DQ'd this weekend in the final round at the PGA but haven't heard anyway what he did. Did he sign an incorrect scorecard or was there more? Any insight?

  3. Course Etiquette Tip

    Please do not take pull carts between greenside bunkers and the putting green. This narrow traffic area quickly wears down.

  4. Destroyed the hole

    Gary, Playing a match, A's ball carries into the hole and severely damages the hole, so that it cannot be easily repaired. There is no official in the group. B has a putt for a half, and the hole is significantly larger than regulation on his line. What are the options? spidey

  5. Hole-in-one

    A lot of attention has been given to a local tournament this weekend in which two vehicles were won on the same hole for a "hole-in-one". I hope both winners realize this immediately classifies them as professional golfers and they are no longer eligible for amateur play.

  6. injury

    Gary, Question about injury. Say a player is injured during a match. Can you outline the procedures for determining the match under conditions such as: a) player injures himself while executing a stroke; b) player is injured by competitor, either accidentally or otherwise;

  7. Question Slice-Free Tees

    I was playing with someone the other day who used these special "slice-free" tees that they had picked up at Canadian Tire, and I was wondering if they were legal according to the RCGA. If you haven't seen them before, the base is like a regular tee but they have a spoon-shaped piece attached...

  8. ..not exactly a rule, but....

    I was playing a course this weekend, an older one, established about 1931. It was beautiful, and had just recently been expanded to 18 holes from 9. When I got to the original holes, I was surprised at how small some of the greens were. Just like there's a guideline about how close to the edge...

  9. Question Another problem situation

    This comes from yesterday's Junior event at Upper Canada. A player hit his ball into a lateral water hazard (red stakes) beside the putting green. He determined the point where his ball last crossed the margin of the hazard. He was unsure whether he was allowed to drop one club length or two...

  10. Question rolling ball

    During a long holdup on the 3rd tee, a player walks over to the 5th green which is open and rolls his ball at the hole from various locations on the green and then returns to the 3rd tee. Any opinions?

    Hi Gary: I was wondering about something that I had seen a few weeks ago (I think it was Sergio who did it) one Sunday afternoon. Whoever it was had embedded the ball in the woods to the left of the fairway and it had come to rest up against a tree root, the tree being closer to the gallery...

  12. Question You be the judge!

    Interesting question from today's Cisco Junior Tournament at Kingsway. These are the circumstances exactly as decribed to me by the player. I hit my tee shot into the deep rough and only seached for it for a minute. I returned to the tee and played a provisional into the same general area....

  13. Question teeing ground ruling requested

    Here is the senario. A player tee's up his ball and addresses it. The swing (club) hit's the ground behind the ball, but does not strike the ball. The ball falls off the tee (4 inches in front of the tee), but is still in the tee box. Can the ball be re-tee'd or must it be played where it...

  14. Post Reasonable Evidence 101

  15. Free Drop Ruling and power lines

    I played a course in Toronto recently that had power lines running across some of the fairways. <ZAP> Anyway. The score card stipulates a free reshot if your ball hits the wires. Question: Can your ball be placed in the spot you shot it from or is it a drop. Part B. If you have to place...

  17. Lightbulb overkill?

    On Father's Day, Mark Johnson came to the last nine holes of the Arizona Mid-Amateur with an 11-shot lead. His caddie, son Seth, was celebrating his 14th birthday. Walking with the group was Seth's buddy, 12 year old Derek, who mistakenly took the putter out of Johnson's bag and carried it. ...

    Jack's ball flies into a hazard marked with yellow stakes. There is a culvert in the hazard which extends through the hazard into the ground beyond the stakes. We all see the ball go into the culvert. When we approach the culvert, we cannot retrieve the ball, it has rolled down into the culvert...

  21. Question What's wrong with this picture?

    A few weeks ago in the final round of Buick Open, Tom Lehman arrived at the tee with 15 clubs. He declared his 5 wood out of play and started the round. He must have gone brain dead because on the ninth hole he used that 5 wood and was immediately disqualified. Can anyone explain why the Rules...

    From Sunday's intersectionals at Mont Cascades... New ob markers were put up inside a fence line which used to define out of bounds. The fence posts were painted white to identify them as OB markers. The fence was not repainted when the new OB stakes were added, and a ball came to rest in...

  23. Question area of intended swing....

    Gary.... When I see a pro tee his/her ball, many times I will see them step down on the grass behind the ball. This is presumably to press down the grass behind the ball so it doesn't accidentally get caught between the ball and clubface. I was just at the rules site for the USGA, and I saw a...

  24. damaged ball

    My irons have square grooves. They make mincemeat out of most balls, but the covers are tough enough to prevent them from becoming out of shape or cut. How much damage can I repair on my ball? f'rinstance... usually, my irons peel some of the skin pretty deeply into the cover of the ball....

Mine is embedded through the green, and I mark, lift, clean and prepare to place it. May I put a mark on it...

  26. Question watching line of putt...

    This happens to me often. I'm standing over my putt, ready to hit. Another player - fellow competitor, I guess - walks behind me looking straight down the line of my putt. First of all, I'm not used to having someone stand there while I putt, so it's distracting (although it's becoming common)....

  27. Match Play - giving bad info

    Its a match. Bob and Andy are on the tee of a par 3 hole. Andy plays first, slicing his ball into the trees out of bounds. The out of bounds is an environmental area, they are not permitted to go and look for the ball. Andy declares his ball lost, and plays another ball up to the green. Bob plays...

    Gary... Andy is a guy who has a temper. He breaks at least one club during each round. Sometimes it's broken during an aggressive swing in the trees. Can Andy carry an extra 5 iron in his bag (the club he usually breaks in the trees) and declare it out of play; but when he breaks his regular 5...

    Interesting penalty situation in the U.S. Open. Janzen penalty info This is first time I have ever seen the Committee waive the penalty of disqualification. The U.S. Open has an official with every group unlike the PGA Tour which has a few roving officials on the course.
