But interference does not exist if the aeration hole only interferes with the player’s stance or, on the putting green, on the player’s line of play. Model Local Rule E-4. 

SPECTATOR ADVICE – Under no circumstances are spectators able to give advice or a player ask a spectator for advice. In addition, any conversation between player/spectator may be construed as advice. This includes any conversation between player/spectator in a language other than English. Players are responsible for the actions of their relatives and spectators in regards to this rule. In either instance, penalty for breach of this rule is two strokes, at the discretion of the rules official(s).

SPECTATORS - Spectators must remain on cart paths or in the rough, and approximately 15 yards from the players, except when helping to search for a ball. There may be no communication between players and spectators that could be deemed advice of any nature for the duration of the 18 holes. Please be aware of other groups and their positions. Spectators are encouraged to forecaddie.

TIME OF STARTING – A player is responsible for being at the assigned tee promptly to begin play on time. A player should arrive at the assigned tee prior to the player’s starting time in order to receive all information. Players will not be called to assigned tees. See Rule 5.3a.

STOPPING AND RESUMING PLAY – Local Rule as prescribed in Section 8 of the Committee Procedures is in effect. Model Local Rule J-1. A suspension of play for a dangerous situation will be signaled by one prolonged note of a siren or horn. All players will be notified of suspension verbally and must stop play immediately. All other suspensions will be signaled by 3 consecutive notes of a siren or horn. In either case, resumption of play will be signaled by 2 short notes of a siren or horn (unless otherwise indicated). See Rule 5.7b. Note: All practice areas are closed during a suspension for a dangerous situation until the Committee has declared them open. Players who practice will be asked to stop practicing; failure to stop practicing might result in disqualification.

TRANSPORTATION - Players shall walk at all times during a stipulated round. UNLESS shuttles are provided by tour officials or volunteers in designated shuttle areas noted in the Notice to Competitors. Players are prohibited from sitting in or riding in a cart driven by a family member and/or coach during the round played. Players are prohibited to ride other than these shuttle areas. This rule is waived in the event of inclement weather/emergency situation where player safety is in question.

CADDIES – All non-Discovery players are prohibited from using a caddie during a stipulated round unless otherwise stated in the Notice to Competitors.

PRACTICING BETWEEN ROUNDS - Prior to and after a round in stroke play, a player may practice on the designated practice area. Rule 5.2b covering practice in stroke play is modified in this way: A player may not practice on the competition course before or between rounds on a competition day. Model Local Rule I-1.2.

SCORECARDS – In the event that a defined, roped scoring area exist, a scorecard is deemed returned to the Committee when the competitor leaves the scoring area. In the absence of such area, a scorecard is deemed returned to the Committee when the score is posted on the official scoreboard. In the case that no physical scoreboard is used, a scorecard is deemed returned to the Committee when the score has been verified by the scorer. No alteration may be made on a scorecard by a competitor after it is returned to the Committee. Competitors are encouraged to remain in the scoreboard area until their scores are posted.

HOW TO DECIDE TIES - In the event of a tie for first place, there will be a hole-by-hole sudden death playoff starting at a hole determined by the Committee. For all other ties, a scorecard tie-breaking system will be used. In multi-day events, the tiebreaker will be the lowest score of the most recent round, and then if necessary, the lowest score of the next previous round, etc. In the event there is still a tie, the tie will then be broken by the scores of the most recent round starting on the 18th hole and working backwards to determine trophy positions. In one-day events, all other ties will be determined by a scorecard play-off starting on the 18th hole and working backwards to determine trophy positions. For ties in both one-day and multi-day events, tour points will be equally distributed among tied players.

CLOSE OF COMPETITION- The competition is deemed to have closed when the trophy has been presented to the winner or, in the absence of a prize ceremony, when the Committee has approved all scores.

LIVE SCORING - Players are required to provide their scorecard to a scoring checkpoint station when asked.
