Model Local Rule E-1
L-1 Modification of Penalty Under Rule 3.3b(2) for Missing Player or Marker Certification
Purpose. Rule 3.3b(2) imposes a penalty of disqualification when the hole scores on the scorecard have not been certified by the player, the marker or both.
The WDCGA Rules Committee feels it is more appropriate to modify the penalty to two strokes via adopting Model Local Rule L-1 for tournament play:
Rule 3.3b(2) is modified in this way:
If a player returns a scorecard without the hole scores being certified either by the player, the marker or both, the player gets the general penalty (two penalty strokes).
The penalty applies to the last hole of the player’s round.
