10 Rules Golfers Still Get Wrong

In this series we pick out 10 rules that many golfers are unaware or are unsure of. In competition, some of these could lead to penalty shots or even disqualification.


In some cases, these rules are there to help you, so they are well worth knowing.


In our newsletter, we will be covering one rule per week, to assist you with your rules knowledge on the course.


2. Playing from outside teeing area

A very commonly broken rule.



The key here is in relation to the penalty because this is something golfers frequently get wrong.


There is a two-stroke penalty in stroke play, and you must correct the error before you tee off on the next hole. If you do not do that, then you get disqualified.


In match play, however, there is no penalty and it is entirely up to your opponent as to whether or not they ask you to cancel the stroke and play again. This may depend on how good or otherwise the original shot was!

Please be sure to look at the back of the scorecard for our local rules. If a player is unsure of the right call on the golf course, their 1st point of call is to verify with their marker.




With only 4 qualifiers left for the final, and a MINIMUM of 6 games needed, if you have not yet played an event, I'm afraid it's too late.


Remember for next year, in order to get to the final of the ECM Monthly IPS, you need to be IN IT TO WIN IT!
