  1. It is a Local Rule G-4. It includes the following words. "This Local Rule is recommended for use only in competitions limited to highly skilled players (that is, professional competitions and elite amateur competitions)."
  2. I suspect it started when the 2019 was being muted. If it was worthwhile it would have been introduced then. I can't see them making such a significant change now, particularly having just issued a new interpretations update
  3. "Off the stick" or "off the stick end" is widely used in the UK to mean disregarding handicaps (generally in match play).
  4. Then there are those of us who enjoy the game all the more by playing as best we can and by the Rules. 😉
  5. If you are playing any nine holes the formula is: Course Handicap = (Handicap Index / 2) * (9 hole Slope Rating / 113) - rounded
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. 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 Just ignore the out of date instruction on dropping - it's now knee height of course
  11. Very useful. I have still got the hardcopy but sometimes a pdf is more useful for the occasional back track
  12. As it is a pdf why didn't you do a pdf search for '20-1/5.5' ?
