Rule of the Day

6-2b/3.5 Wrong Handicap Recorded on Score Card by Committee; Error Discovered Before Competition Closed

In a stroke-play competition, the Committee issues the score cards containing the competitor's handicap in addition to his name and the date.

The Committee mistakenly records a competitor's handicap as seven instead of six and this affects the number of strokes received. The error remains unnoticed until after the card is returned, but before the competition has closed. What is the ruling?

The competitor should be disqualified under Rule 6-2b. It is the responsibility of the competitor to ensure that his correct handicap is recorded on his score card before it is returned to the Committee.

golf-history 1964 Johnny Miller wins U.S. Junior Amateur

Aug 01

For the first time in U.S. Junior Amateur history, the USGA conducted on-site stroke-play qualifying to determine the 64 players who would advance to match play out of the 150-player field. Johnny Miller, a 17-year-old from San Francisco, Calif., who would later capture the 1973 U.S. Open, not only was the stroke-play qualifying medalist at 3-under-par 139, but he also advanced all the way to the championship final, where he defeated Enrique Sterling Jr. of Mexico, 2 and 1, at Eugene (Ore.) Country Club. Miller is one of only two golfers to win both the Junior and the Open. The other is Tiger Woods.
