  1. Decisions of the Rules of Golf

    This link goes to the 2014/15 edition. The link from jlbos83 is the 2016/17 edition. There are a few differences
  2. Lost ball rule and pace of play

    Such a bounce and selective drop may of course result in a wrong place and serious breach DQ.
  3. Signing for "incorrect scorecard"

    It's the score on the card that counts, no matter what system you enter into. If you want the total, add it in your head, on a calculator, into a spread sheet or a system of some sort. If it doesn't tally the card is the be all and end all.

  5. Signing for "incorrect scorecard"

    The 'tradition' goes back centuries. Many would find that insulting in the UK. But given that hats these days equates with caps, it is an unlikely to crop up in a business situation.
  11. Unwritten Rules of Golf

    That is the norm in the UK
  12. Unwritten Rules of Golf

    even more so
  13. Unwritten Rules of Golf

    Fist bumps are now so passe
  14. Unwritten Rules of Golf

  15. Blown leaf alters putt, you can replay?

    As has been pointed out elsewhere, the rule itself is designed so that you are not disadvantaged if your stroke from the green is knocked off course by something moving into your line of putt. See 19-1/7
