Frequently Asked Questions - Competition Manual
A woman may play in any division as long as she meets the qualification criteria for that division. There are no divisions that are restricted to males only.
If a group mistakenly starts play early and then hears the official start signal, they return to the tee and start over. None of those throws count as practice throws even if made after the two-minute signal. If the group actually started early but never heard the official start signal, their scores stand as thrown with no penalties.
