Press Release from Rules Committee

This is merely a re-posting of the rules posted officially on the 18-12-2007.  The re-posting has largely to do with the fact that there was a large amount of confusion regarding 'Rule 4'

4. The 18th hole (and only the 18th) must be played in medal format. i.e. no picking up and 'ringing' unless you feel you are completely out of the running.

Special attention should be made to the provision made at the end of the rule.

You can look at the rule book yourself if you like.  The rules committee is deeply disappointed that even the reporting media at the latest Daly Cup seemed to be confused about the rule and seemed to disqualify a competitor based on this misunderstanding.  I am not asking for an apology, but a correction I feel would be in order.

I hope that for the next Championship all those concerned will be au faux with the rules.

I would also like some feedback on a proposed new rule that the use of transport aids by competitors on the course be banned.  We are currently debating the issue.

Yours Sincerely

The Rules Committee
