HGoOC Tournament Tie Breakers

 Low Net – USGA Tie-Breaker
Matching scorecards to break a tie is also known as a card count-back or a scorecard play-off.  Complete USGA tie-breaker rules and guidelines can be found at https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=cp&section=rule&rulenum=5 in Committee Procedures 5A, paragraph (6).

Additional Considerations:

  •   If this method is used in a competition with a multiple tee start (shotgun start), it is recommended that the “last nine holes, last six holes, etc.” are holes 10-18, 13-18, etc.

  •   For net competitions where the stroke index allocation as set by the Committee is not used, such as individual stroke play, if the last nine, last six, last three holes scenario is used, one-half, one-third, one-sixth, etc. of the handicaps should be deducted from the score for those holes. Handicap stroke fractions should be applied in accordance with the rules or recommendations contained within the Handicap System operating in the local jurisdiction.

 

Overall Low Net (2-day total low net)

  •   Last 18 holes/round net score

  •   USGA low net tie-breaker on last 18 holes/round

  •   Also used from Members’ Memorial Cup tie-breaker (2 days over 2-month)

 

Overall Low Gross (2-day total low gross)

  •   Last 18 holes/round gross score

  •   USGA low gross tie-breaker on last 18 holes (same as low net tiebreaker, but handicap not taken/used)


CoViD-19 Specific Rules

Flagstick: The flagstick must remain in the hole during play and golfers must not touch the flagstick at any time. If a golfer should make a stroke from anywhere on the golf course with the flagstick removed, the golfer will be assessed a one stroke penalty for breach of the modified local rule to rule 13.2. Maximum of one stroke per hole. If the flagstick is removed inadvertently and then replaced before a stroke is made then there is no penalty.

Sand Traps/Bunkers: When a golfer’s ball comes to rest in a bunker, it is played as it lies in a general area (no stroke).  General area no stroke and stroke options can be taken if applicable.


Other USGA & Local Rules

Maximum search time for lost balls is 3 minutes.  If you didn’t hit a provision ball, use the 2-stroke penalty, 2-clublength fairway drop rule.

 For KPs (“Closest to the Pin”) and “Second Chance”:  Mark your ball with another golfer in your group present. If you will be measuring, mark your ball BUT do not pick it up/lift it.  Measurements need to be done by a golfer other than the golfer whose ball is being measured.  Record measurements to the nearest ½ inch.  Except for hole-in-ones and chip-ins, no ties.

 Play “Ready Golf”:  Don’t demand, expect or play “honors” or “your tee” if you are not ready to play.  It's okay to hit/putt before someone behind you (“away”) if you can reasonably do so.  Pace of play is very important.  Each golfer in your group will be penalized a stroke a hole if your group finishes two holes or more behind the preceding group.

Ball Holed: As always, no gimmes - putt the ball until it stays in the hole.  A foam “noodle”, metal insert or upside-down cup may be used in the cups, but the ball usually stays in the hole.  If a ball for any reason bounces out of the hole, the ball is not holed. Golfer must hole out period (Rules 3.3c and 6.5).

Lost Ball/OB:  If you didn't hit a provisional, use the 2-stroke penalty, 2-clublength fairway drop (https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules-hub/rules-modernization/major-changes/golfs-new-rules-stroke-and-distance.html) for lost and OB balls.  Allow 3 minutes maximum for looking for a lost ball.

Tee Box/Ground (Rule 6.2):  It is a rectangular area two club-lengths in depth, the front and the sides of which are defined by the outside limits of two tee-markers. A ball is outside the teeing ground when all of it lies outside the teeing ground.

Advice:  Advice given or requested between golfers in not allowed in tournament/match play.  USGA defines advice as: “Any verbal comment or action (such as showing what club was just used to make a stroke) that is intended to influence you or another player in choosing a club, making a stroke, or deciding how to play during a hole or round. But advice does not include public information such as the location of things on the course, the distance from one point to another, or the rules”

Marking your ball on the green: When marking your ball, mark it exactly as it lies. Do not give yourself an advantage by flipping your marker or sliding your marker under your ball.  If needed, move your mark not your ball.  Use a reference point/landmark when moving your mark.

Ruben Tacub was undoubtedly the best Hawaii Golfer of Orange County for many years.  He was an active member of HGoOC until he suffered a stroke and could no longer play.  He sadly passed in May 2013 at the age of 58.  He was a great role model to his family and friends and was well liked by the members of our club/organization and represented our club well.  He took the game of golf seriously, he was a scratch golfer and always dressed and carried himself in a professional manner.  He demonstrated characteristics that were ideal for HGoOC members and brought positive energy to all that he encountered.  For all this and more, and in the spirit of friendly competition we have named our year long scoring competition the Ruben Tacub Memorial Championship (RTMC).  The HGoOC member to receive this annual award will be named and honored as "Golfer of the Year".
