LOCAL RULE (Decision 14-3/0.5) PERMITTING USE OF
DISTANCE-MEASURING DEVICE A player or caddie
may use a USGA approved legal Distance-Measuring
Device in Team Matches and Tournaments unless a
local rule at a Member Club prohibits the use of
such a device. Penalty for using an
illegal device Disqualification Penalty for
using such a device where or when
prohibited Disqualification (Rule
14-3) According to the USGA any device that has
any other features, EVEN IF TURNED OFF, is not
allowed. IT MUST MEASURE DISTANCE ONLY (RULE 14-3
B). NOTE The WGAP Executive Committee reserves
the right to prohibit the use of
a Distance-Measuring Device at any time and will
not settle any personal disputes
involving Distance-Measuring Devices.

If your club allows DMDs, be sure they have a
LOCAL RULE in effect.
  • Distance-measuring devices (i.e., devices whose
    primary function is to measure distance) may
    continue to be used only if the local rule is in
    effect.
  • When the local rule is in effect,
    distance-measuring devices must be limited to
    measuring distance only.

Etiquette (Decision 33-7/8) in ALL Team Matches
and Tournaments. Penalty Disqualification

Whats New For 2014 Stroke and Match Play
  • 2014 is not a Rule Change year
  • Effective 2016, no anchoring of putter
  • The Decisions Book was updated in 2014
  • Rules Books are free except for postagekeep one
    in your bag
  • Smart Phone/tablet APP is very useful

32
Knowing the Rules in Match Play
  • Not knowing a Rule is OK
  • Overlooking a breach by an opponent is OK
  • Agreeing to waive a Rule is DQ
  • Very different than stroke play

33
Order of Play
  • Order of play is a major part of match play
  • Order of play does not care whether you are on or
    off the putting green
  • Penalty for playing out of turn opponent MAY
    recall the shot.
  • Dont putt out if it isnt your turn
  • For team matches, visiting team has honor on the
    first tee (local rule)

34
Penalties
  • All stroke play 1 stroke play penalties are the
    same in match play
  • Moving your opponents ball in play is a 1 stroke
    penalty. Ask before marking opponents ball or it
    is a penalty.
  • The general penalty is loss of hole there are no
    2 stroke penalties in match play
  • Loss of hole is immediate

35
Doubt as to Procedure
  • Dont play second ball (stroke play option only)
  • Try to agree with opponent on correct play
  • If you dont agree, do what YOU (the player)
    think is right PLAY ON. Dont stop play to get a
    ruling
  • If opponent disagrees she may make a claim if it
    affects the outcome of the hole

36
Making a Claim
  • Make the claim before teeing off on next hole or
    leaving last putting green
  • Example I am making a CLAIM and want a RULING
    because THIS wasnt right
  • Late claims allowed only
  • If facts unknown to player AND
  • Given wrong information by opponent (opponent may
    not have known it was wrong)
  • After results posted (sheet signed by both
    captains), opponent must have known it was wrong

37
Just the Facts Maam
  • Most bad rulings result from bad or incomplete
    facts
  • Understand what your opponent believes her score
    for the hole is
  • If you disagree on outcome of hole, first focus
    on the facts, not the penalty
  • What do you agree on
  • What do your disagree about

38
Protests
  • You have made a claim and think you have been
    given an incorrect ruling that affects outcome of
    the match
  • You believe a team match procedure has been
    violated
  • You believe a player or the team has been treated
    in a way inconsistent with the spirit of the game

39
Concessions
  • Can concede the next stroke this is not
    concession of hole (anyone can pick up the ball)
  • Can concede the hole or match before conclusion
    of hole or match (dont have to complete hole or
    match)
  • Cannot concede after conclusion of hole or match
  • Good Good is OK anytime after start play of hole
  • Shaking hands is concession of next stroke of
    both players
  • Cannot refuse or take back a concession (even if
    based on incorrect information)

40
Status of the Match
  • Your opponent is entitled to know where things
    stand
  • If asked, you must provide CORRECT information on
    number of strokes taken BEFORE opponent plays her
    next shot
  • If you have had a penalty stroke and your
    opponent did not see it, you must inform her as
    soon as practicable
  • Difference between incorrect and wrong information

41
Adjustment Penalties
  • Adjustment to the state of the match penalties
    include club and caddie penalties
  • These are NOT loss of hole penalties or stroke
    penalties
  • Play out and determine the result of the hole by
    skill then adjust state of match

42
Playing Outside the Teeing Ground
  • Opponent MAY recall the shot
  • This includes things like teeing off on the wrong
    hole or from the wrong teeing ground (white tees
    versus red tees)

43
Scorecards
  • No scorecard required in match play
  • Score cards are for the players convenience
  • Match play scores should be posted for handicap.

44
Match Play Reminders
  • If YOU move your ball, replace, 1 stroke penalty
  • Includes balls moving after address since you are
    deemed to have moved it new exception known or
    virtually certain something other than gravity
    moved it
  • If your ball moves on its own, play it from new
    location, no penalty
  • Play a provisional BEFORE you go forward to
    search
  • Provisional is not for a ball that might be in a
    water hazard

45
DMDs and other devices
  • Range findersmake sure you choose model with
    range only. No slope correction. Some ads are
    quite subtle
  • From Appendix IV A multifunctional device such
    as a smartphone or PDA may be used as a distance
    measuring device provided it contains a distance
    measuring application that meets all of the above
    limitations (measure distance only). In
    addition, when the distance measuring application
    is being used, there must be no other feature or
    applications installed on the device that, if
    used, would be in breach of the Rules, whether or
    not they are actually used
  • Most smartphones have apps that render them
    illegal as DMDscompass, weather, elevation,
    etc.
  • If using a medical device (fingers taped
    together, arthritis gloves), report it ahead of
    time.

46
Questions
  • Continuous putting
  • Dont do it in match play
  • Caddie responsibility
  • Player is responsible for any infractions by
    caddie
  • Equipment carried by caddie is equipment of the
    player whose ball is involved
  • Posting Scores
  • Do it. Use most likely score if you did not hole
    out
