In accordance with USGA Rules of Golf, the Note under Rule 14-3 for all TMGA Championshipsis in effect. Therefore, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (gradient, wind speed, temperature, etc.) the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional information function is actually used.
Contestants (and their caddies) are to observe proper golf etiquette at all times. Any abuse or disrespect of fellow competitors, officials, spectators, employees of the host facility, or other persons conducting or attending a TMGA sponsored event can be grounds for disqualification from the event, and possible rejection of entry for future TMGA events. Such abuse may be verbal or physical or threat thereof and includes, but is not limited to: the use of obscene language, physical damage to property or equipment including that of the TMGA or the host facility, and being under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances during a competitive round.
Appropriate golf attire is required at all TGA events. This includes collared shirts with sleeves that must be properly tucked in at all times, Bermuda length shorts, or slacks. The dress code of the host facility will prevail if there is any question.
Entries received after the field limit has been reached will be placed on a “waitlist” for that event. Applicants will be ranked on the waitlist in the order their application was received by the TGA. Any spots in the field that become available will then be filled in accordance with the ranked waitlist. The TGA will use the waitlist up until 6:00 PM of the night prior to Round One. After that time, any player on the waitlist may exercise their right to walk up on site. Please see “Walk Up Procedure” for further details.
