Distance Measuring Devices:  A player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only.  If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (for example - gradient, windspeed, temperature, etc), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is acutally used.


Pace of Play:  For all (3) rounds each pairing group will consist of a maximum of 3 players.

This will help maintain a better pace by eliminating one player from each group.  

Allotted Time - Maximum times to play will be determined for each day of the Championship. Maximum times to play each hole will be printed on each competitor’s scorecard, and competitors will be additionally advised of that day’s maximum time to play prior to starting. It is the group’s responsibility to finish each checkpoint within the times outlined on the scorecard or within position of the group directly in front of them. When a group falls behind – regardless of the reason – it must regain its position. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking time between holes is included in the allotted time.

USGA Rule 6-7.  Undue Delay; Slow Play states: "The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidlines that the Committee may establish.  Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play."
