Educational Tip of the Week

The Illinois Junior Golf Association strives to help its members to not only learn the love of the game but also to learn about the rules and etiquette that goes along with playing golf. In 2017, the IJGA will feature a new rule or etiquette tip on the first tee and on our website each week to help educate not only our members, but also our spectators.

Week of June 19th

This week we are looking at 18-4 Ball at Rest Moved by Fellow-Competitor, Caddie or Equipment in Stroke Play. Read the full rule here.

If a fellow-competitor, his caddie or his equipment, moves the player’s ball, touches it or causes it to move, there is no penalty. If the ball is moved, it must be replaced.
