Ear Plugs

An interesting issue.

Rules do not specifically mention ear plugs but under 4.3a(4) an action not allowed is listening to music to eliminate distractions. As ear plugs are used for the same purpose I would say using them is a breach of R4.3a. Unless there is a medical reason for using them.

I am not allowed to reveal info provided by the USGA through their Rules Q & A service.  In my opinion, you have a good grasp of the Rules and your interpretations appear to be accurate.
