GOLF INTEBPBETATI0N3 OUT
New Rales Are Seat to All Member
NEW YORK. April 17. All clubs holding
membersshlp In the Vnlted Btatee Oolf
association are being supplied with books
of the new rules containing the American
Interpretations. In some Instances clubs
have sent for a sufficient number of extra
copies to supply all their members, as It
la quite the thing these days for. devotees
of the game to make a study of the rules.
Iready several well known players through
thoughtlessness have got Into difficulties.
Even on the other side, shortly after the
new St. Andrews rules went Into effect,
James Rrald early In a match proceeded
brush the line of his putt, whereupon
hla opponent promptly claimed the hole.
That probably will serve to keep this
change fresh In the open champion's mem-
This rule, however, Is not so drastic as
some seem to think, while brushing the
line of putt Is prohibited, the rule also
statea that dung, worncasts, snow and Ice
may be scraped aside with the club, but
ha club must not be laid with more than
Its own weight on the ground, nor may
nythlng be pressed down either with the
club or In any other way. At match play
violation of this rule Incurs loss of the
hole, while at medal play the penalty la
There la now no loophole for thoee who
have ever aought to bar stymies. For in-
tance, rule 7 atates that "when the balls
re In play the ball further from the hole
hall be played first." The special rule
(1) reads: "On the putting green if the
competitor whose ball la the nearer to the
hole play first, his ball shall be at once
The penalty for a breach of thla rule Is
the disqualification of both competitors.
As a further check, special rule S provldea
that a competitor shall not waive any
penalty Incurred by hla opponent under
penalty of disqualification.
Other points to be remembered this sea
son are that a player Is allowed -a clear
putt to the hole on a green where there
s casual water; that a shot out of bounds
from the tee may be reteed, but through
the green only dropped; that a practice
awing Is permtssable more ' than a club's
length from the ball and that players
looking for a lost ball must algnal to
othera to pass and must wait until they go
by and are out of range.
