    Re: Retrieving a card from the Comp Box

    Put a little feint signature on your card right at the start



    Then at the end go over it with your proper signature.



    If you forget to go over at the end, the feint signature will be fine.

    As you well know but omitted to make clear, it depends on the circumstances.

    #46 implies that DQ is always the penalty.

    If you want to sign it faintly before you start, why not just sign it boldly and only have to do it once?

    As I've said more times than I've had hot dinners, it's not the existence of the signature that is important, it's a statement of "I've checked the gross scores with my marker".

    Really?


    As you well know but omitted to make clear, it depends on the circumstances.

    The point I was making was you could return a signed card with the wrong score (which could affect the players handicap and/or the results of the competition and only get a 2 shot penalty if the error was discovered.

    Whereas returning a correct score but not signed is a DQ

    It's the imbalance of the punishment I am questioning


    Perhaps a future rule change could reduce the DQ to a 2 shot penalty as they have done in other circumstances

    What error?

    Except in one specific case relating to an unknown rule breach, the penalty for a wrong score is DQ.

    Why do you concentrate on the rare exception, which is really a penalty for not being aware of a rule? It's not really about entering the wrong no of strokes played.

    It will probably never crop up in club competition.
