Giving Putts


Recommended Posts

Matchplay
I have been having this argument with several friends in my club...so wat is we are aguing over! In a match if you concede your oppenents putt for the half, if he/she decides to finish out for practice and miss could I claim the hole?

As many replies as possible for it is gonna take alot convincing this person he is wrong!

O and if your gonna say yes you can pull dnt reply! Only jokin! lol! :)

hole is over once you concede... if he putts well it's practice because practice putts are allowed.

 

Bingo... :)

Ask for gimme...got to nip that in the bud. "You ask, You putt"! Our regular bunch of guys play no gimmes, putt everything out. With the amount of bets and pitchers of beer riding on the game and bragging rights, we made it a rule years ago... Makes it even for everyone (some guys were a little too liberal in the gimme department). It's incredible how tough a 1.5 foot slider, downhill is when there is cash on the line. Also good test of the nerves.

Here's a variation on the theme, if I can slightly hi-jack the thread...

 

What if you're playing team/partner match play (best score per hole from you or your partner), and you're out of the hole, but your ball lies on your partner's line... If the other team concede's your putt -- with the idea of you picking it up and NOT putting to show your partner the line -- then can you putt it anyway (and show your partner the line)? Or, do you have to pick it up?

 

Any different ruling applied here, or is it the same situation? Is it a rules or an etiquette question -- or neither?

 

Thanks!

Ahh, good question. I don't know for sure if it's a rules violation, but it would definitely breach etiquette rules IMO. I've seen local rules posted where this would result in a loss of hole penalty.

 

You can putt it later (after everyone has putted out) for practice, but I'm not sure you could go ahead and putt before your partner if your putt was conceded.

If conceded in this circumstance it must be removed and not stroked.

 

Now, is that etiquette, or a matter of the rules?

 

Thanks, folks.

Straight from the USGA, here's the answer to both scenarios.

2-4/6 Putting Out After Concession of Stroke

 

 

Rule 2-4 does not cover the question of whether a player may putt out after his next stroke has been conceded. A player incurs no penalty for holing out in such circumstances. However, if the act would be of assistance to a partner in a four-ball or best-ball match, the partner is, in equity (Rule 1-4), disqualified for the hole.

 

Agreement to Concede Short Putts — See 1-3/2.

2-4/7 Concession of Stroke Refused by Player and Withdrawn by Opponent; Player Then Putts and Misses

 

 

Q. In a match between A and B, A putts and his ball comes to rest near the hole. B concedes A’s next stroke. A says: “No. I haven’t holed out yet.” B says: “OK. Go ahead and putt.” A putts and misses. In such circumstances, is the concession invalidated?

 

A. No. When B conceded A’s next stroke, A had completed the hole. Concession of a stroke may not be declined or withdrawn — see Rule 2-4.
