Rules of Golf
Golf is one of the few ball games that do not require a standardised playing area. . Maximum output with some simple thoughts...
1.Clubs must conform to the specifications in Appendix II; generally, clubs must be of a traditional form and make, and plain in shape. Normal wear and tear does not make a club non conforming if it was originally conforming as long as it is fit for play.
2.The characteristics of a club cannot be changed during a round, and foreign material cannot be applied to the club to influence the ball.
3.Clubs that become damaged and unusable by normal play may be repaired or replaced if it does not delay the game; clubs damaged in other means (frustration) cannot be used, repaired or replaced. A player may not borrow a club from another person playing to substitute a damaged one, nor assemble one from any spare parts that may be carried to repair clubs. If a club damaged in the normal course of play is unfit for play it may be replaced or repaired. Repair means to return the club to its original state.
4.A player must not start a stipulated round with more than fourteen clubs. If two players are sharing clubs, the combined total clubs for both players must not exceed fourteen.
The penalty for carrying, but not using, an illegal club is two strokes for each hole up to a maximum of two that was played while in violation.
The penalty for using a non-conforming club or more than 14 different clubs to make a stroke at the ball is disqualification.
