# Pardon My Ignorance, Couple of Questions

## Recommended Posts

A) A French golfer on the Euro' Challenge Tour was DQ'd for running out of balls. Is there a max limit to how many balls a player can have, or did he simply not have enough?

B) When watching the tour each week, the commentator most of the time tells us what club a player is using for the shot. I can see if it's a driver or wood, yet irons? Does someone by the player(caddie, etc), signal which club is being used?

C)

No max, and he could have borrowed one from someone else, but that's a two-stroke penalty if the one-ball rule is in effect.

They use hand signals. A 4 pointed upward is a 4-iron, pointed downward is a 9-iron (4+5 fingers).

Interesting, I didn't know that they used the downturned hand to add 5.  How do they differentiate each wedge?

I don't know. Closed fist is usually a pitching wedge (i.e. "10").

• It happens. There's nothing wrong with taking a break. I don't play golf four months out of the year.
• I'm really frustrated with golf right now and am hating it. I keep shanking the ball and am at my wits end. I just totally suck.
• @Cantankerish take heart!  At least you are playing golf.   I am currently nursing an injury, again. Out all last week, this week and not sure when I can play again.
• Also breaking state laws?  Not every state has legalized medicinal marijuana.   CBD oil is legal in every state though
• Pick yourself up. It’s happened to every one of us and will happen again and again. Golf is a four letter word. Embrace it.😀
