  1. If you are playing any nine holes the formula is: Course Handicap = (Handicap Index / 2) * (9 hole Slope Rating / 113) - rounded
  2. When an Authorized Association issues Course Ratings and Slope Ratings to golf clubs, the 18-hole ratings should also be presented with front nine and back nine Course Ratings and Slope Ratings. The calculation of a 9-hole Course Handicap must use the correct Slope Rating for the 9-hole golf course being played
  3. I have no idea who these people are and what their relationship on the course was. I didn't notice a post that spelled it out. Am i right in thinking there were actually 3 players. I wasn't referring to the Sunday thing.
  4. Have I got this right? Kim's caddie was Dye. Weber's caddie was Schram Kim plays first. Before Weber plays, Dye 'asks' Schram if Weber is taking an 8-iron Schram indicates that she is. Doesn't the old decision 8-1/6 cover this? If not, why not?
  5. OK, got it now. I don't think I have ever seen a video of such a situation but I'll see if I've got any old diagrams or graphics
  6. This is a pretty good but rather wooden explanation. Just ignore the out of date instruction on dropping - it's now knee height of course
  7. Very useful. I have still got the hardcopy but sometimes a pdf is more useful for the occasional back track
  8. As it is a pdf why didn't you do a pdf search for '20-1/5.5' ?
  9. It seems that the current PGA Tour hardcard is on their website but is only available to members who have registered. My copies are in the form of locked PDFs so I can't post any extracts. A few years ago the PGA Tour promised the USGA they would no longer introduce any local rules or conditions of competition that were not authorised by the USGA/R&A. To date, they have not broken their word
  10. I could only find this but I believe the PGA Tour Australia is associated with or part of the PGA Tour https://pga-tic.com/factsheets/2019/N053/File_1.pdf
  11. Under the Rules of Golf, which the PGA Tour specifically say they follow, they are not permitted to make any modifications that are not authorised by the USGA/R&A. The only modifications are those specified in the Committee Procedures section of the Rules of Golf. The prohibition on using clubhead is not one of them. Incidentally, I have copies of the PGA Tour Hard Card with the Conditions of Competition and Local Rules going back to 2008. The is no mention of the subject on any of them. Do you have document saying they are prohibited?
  12. Did you not read post #2? 14.1a .....the player must mark the spot which means to: Place a ball-marker right behind or right next to the ball, or Hold a club on the ground right behind or right next to the ball.
  13. How could it provide a line if it was not exactly on an extension of the line from the hole thru the partner's ball or on the line of borrow?
