    Re: Mickleson 2_shot or DQ?

    I would have thought the second part of the answer in decision 1-2 5.5 covers it, although I'd also like to know in this context what would be considered a 'serious breach'.

    You guess wrong then, I do know who Casey Martin is. I was hoping to glean some relevant information and informed opinions from club members, rather than some sarcastic, smart Alec response.

    Buggies in Club Qualifying Competitions

    I would be interested on views, or particularly club policies, on using buggies in your club's monthly medals / stablefords, and trophy competitions.

    Re: When others 'NR' in a comp.

    I would say the Handicap Committee should have a look at it. Wonder if their names came up at the Annual Review.

    Thank you Duncan, my apologies for misquoting the requirement.

    Re: When others 'NR' in a comp.

    I think you misunderstood - I said they shouldn't get the 0.1 increase. They have withdrawn from the competition - a withdrawal does not get a 0.1 increase.
    They are effectively building a false...

    The IG system has a withdrawn option in the results which doesn't add 0.1 to your handicap and I think should be used for injuries, illness etc.
