Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Please provide your full name?

    Explanation
    Example: John Smith

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which one of the following is NOT one of the duties performed by a Caddie?

    • A.

      Carry the player’s bag.

    • B.

      Help with the club selection.

    • C.

      Slow down the pace of play.

    • D.

      Rake the bunker once your player has hit out of the bunker.

    Correct Answer
    C. Slow down the pace of play.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Slow down the pace of play." A caddie's duties typically include carrying the player's bag, helping with club selection, and raking the bunker once the player has hit out of it. However, it is not their responsibility to slow down the pace of play. In fact, caddies are often expected to help maintain a good pace of play by assisting the player efficiently and keeping up with the group ahead.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which one of the following is NOT a condition that would entitle the player to relief?

    • A.

      A puddle of water.

    • B.

      A hole made by a burrowing animal.

    • C.

      An area marked with white paint.

    • D.

      A bunker that is not raked.

    Correct Answer
    D. A bunker that is not raked.
    Explanation
    A bunker that is not raked is not a condition that would entitle the player to relief. The other options, such as a puddle of water, a hole made by a burrowing animal, and an area marked with white paint, are all conditions that could potentially affect the player's ability to play the game and would therefore entitle them to relief. However, a bunker that is not raked is not considered a condition that would impact the player's ability to play the game and therefore does not entitle them to relief.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What should your player do if they hit the ball out of bounds?

    • A.

      Drop a ball where the original ball went out of bounds.

    • B.

      Go back to the place where the original ball was played from and play another ball with a one stroke penalty.

    • C.

      Drop a ball near the closest competitor and play from that spot.

    • D.

      Not play another ball and take an 8 for the hole.

    Correct Answer
    B. Go back to the place where the original ball was played from and play another ball with a one stroke penalty.
    Explanation
    If a player hits the ball out of bounds, they should go back to the place where the original ball was played from and play another ball with a one stroke penalty. This is in accordance with the rules of golf, where hitting the ball out of bounds results in a penalty stroke and the player must replay the shot from the original spot.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following is a movable obstruction?

    • A.

      A small plant, that is still alive and growing, between your player and the green.

    • B.

      A trash can, not secured to the ground, which interferes with the players swing.

    • C.

      Out of bounds stakes on the perimeter of the course.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. A trash can, not secured to the ground, which interferes with the players swing.
    Explanation
    A movable obstruction refers to any object that can be easily moved and is not considered a permanent part of the golf course. In this case, a trash can that is not secured to the ground and interferes with the player's swing can be moved out of the way without penalty. The other options, such as a small plant or out of bounds stakes, are not considered movable obstructions as they are either natural features or course boundaries that cannot be moved.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which statement is FALSE regarding a ball in a Water Hazard (yellow stakes or lines)?

    • A.

      A player may play the ball as it lies in the water hazard without touching the ground or water with his hand or club and without moving any loose impediments (stones, leaves, etc.) without penalty.

    • B.

      A player may play a ball from the same place as the ball that was originally hit into the water, adding one penalty stroke.

    • C.

      A player may drop a ball behind the hazard, keeping the point where the ball last crossed the margin of the hazard directly between the hole and the spot where the ball is to be dropped, no limit how far behind the hazard it may be dropped, adding one penalty stroke.

    • D.

      A player may use the drop area, if one is provided, without penalty.

    Correct Answer
    D. A player may use the drop area, if one is provided, without penalty.
    Explanation
    The statement that is FALSE regarding a ball in a Water Hazard (yellow stakes or lines) is that a player may use the drop area, if one is provided, without penalty. In reality, if a drop area is provided, it is optional for the player to use it. They can choose to play the ball as it lies in the water hazard, drop a ball behind the hazard, or play a ball from the same place as the ball that was originally hit into the water, all of which incur a penalty stroke.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Out of Bounds is defined as beyond the boundaries of the course or any part of the course so marked by the Committee.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement accurately defines "Out of Bounds" as being beyond the boundaries of the course or any part of the course marked by the Committee. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which statement is NOT true regarding the SCJrT pace of play?

      Each player may take no more than 45 seconds to play a shot.

    • B.

      It is the caddie’s duty to help players hit their shots within a reasonable time.

    • C.

      Over-coaching by a caddie will speed up the round and improve pace of play.

    • D.

      Player must play without any undue delay.

    Correct Answer
    C. Over-coaching by a caddie will speed up the round and improve pace of play.
  • 9. 

    Participants must exchange scorecards with the other players in the group so that no player has their own scorecard.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because in order to ensure fairness and prevent cheating, participants should exchange scorecards with other players in the group. This ensures that no player has their own scorecard and eliminates the possibility of tampering or favoritism. By exchanging scorecards, each player can independently verify the accuracy of the scores and maintain transparency in the game.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The nearest point of relief from a paved cart path is the nearest point on the course where the cart path is no longer in the way and is not nearer the hole.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the nearest point of relief from a paved cart path is the closest point on the course where the cart path is no longer obstructing the player's shot and is not closer to the hole. This means that the player can move their ball to this point without any penalty or interference from the cart path.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which of the following would be considered inappropriate attire for caddies or players at a SCJT event?

    • A.

      A collared shirt with sleeves.

    • B.

      Tennis shoes or golf shoes.

    • C.

      Slacks or shorts.

    • D.

      Caddy Bib

    • E.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above.
    Explanation
    All of the options listed would be considered inappropriate attire for caddies or players at a SCJT event. A collared shirt with sleeves, tennis shoes or golf shoes, slacks or shorts, and a caddy bib are all examples of attire that would not meet the dress code requirements for the event.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which statement is FALSE regarding a ball in a Lateral Water Hazard (red stakes or lines)?

    • A.

      A player may drop a ball two club lengths from the point where the ball last entered the hazard, but not closer to the hole

    • B.

      A player may play a ball from the same place as the ball that was originally hit into the water.

    • C.

      A player may drop a ball behind the hazard, keeping the point where the ball last crossed the margin of the hazard directly between the hole and the spot where the ball is dropped, with no limit how far behind the water hazard the ball may be dropped.

    • D.

      A player may drop the ball as close as possible to the green.

    Correct Answer
    D. A player may drop the ball as close as possible to the green.
    Explanation
    The statement that is false regarding a ball in a Lateral Water Hazard is that a player may drop the ball as close as possible to the green. In reality, a player is not allowed to drop the ball as close as possible to the green. They have to follow specific rules such as dropping the ball two club lengths from the point where the ball last entered the hazard, but not closer to the hole, or dropping the ball behind the hazard, keeping the point where the ball last crossed the margin of the hazard directly between the hole and the spot where the ball is dropped.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    If during play, the player and caddie are not sure how to proceed under the rules, what can they do?

    • A.

      Continue play and disregard all rules.

    • B.

      Stop play and wait for a rules official to drive by.

    • C.

      Take an 8 on the hole

    • D.

      Play a second ball, under rule 3-3, and advise all of the other players which ball you plan to count as the score for that hole, if the rules permit.

    Correct Answer
    D. Play a second ball, under rule 3-3, and advise all of the other players which ball you plan to count as the score for that hole, if the rules permit.
    Explanation
    If the player and caddie are unsure about how to proceed under the rules during play, they can choose to play a second ball under rule 3-3. This allows them to continue playing while also giving them the opportunity to consult with a rules official or clarify the situation later. They must inform all other players which ball they plan to count as their score for that hole, if the rules permit. This option ensures fair play and adherence to the rules while resolving any uncertainties.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    When is relief NOT available from an immovable obstruction?

    • A.

      When a ball lies in or on the obstruction.

    • B.

      If the obstruction interferes with the players swing.

    • C.

      If the obstruction interferes with the players line of play.

    • D.

      If the obstruction interferes with the players stance.

    Correct Answer
    C. If the obstruction interferes with the players line of play.
    Explanation
    Relief is not available from an immovable obstruction when it interferes with the player's line of play. This means that if the obstruction is in the direct path between the player's ball and the intended target, the player is not allowed to take relief. In this situation, the player must play the ball as it lies and navigate around or over the obstruction. Relief is available if the ball is in or on the obstruction, if the obstruction interferes with the player's swing, or if it interferes with the player's stance.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Use a cell phone or other electronic device on the course.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    Spectators are not allowed to give advice to the players, walk alongside them on the course, or use a cell phone or other electronic device on the course. "All of the above" means that all of these actions are not allowed for spectators.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    What is the maximum score allowed per hole in a SCJT event?

    • A.

      15

    • B.

      12

    • C.

      10

    • D.

      8

    Correct Answer
    C. 10
    Explanation
    In a SCJT event, the maximum score allowed per hole is 10. This means that if a player takes more than 10 shots to complete a hole, their score for that hole will be recorded as 10. This rule is in place to prevent players from excessively delaying the pace of play and to ensure that the event runs smoothly and efficiently.

      A few snacks such as granola bars.

    • C.

      Sunscreen.

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the Above
    Explanation
    A player should bring all of the above items to a tournament. A full water bottle is important to stay hydrated during the games. Snacks like granola bars provide quick energy and can help sustain the player's performance. Sunscreen is necessary to protect the player's skin from harmful UV rays, especially if the tournament is held outdoors. Therefore, bringing all of these items is essential for a player's comfort, performance, and well-being during a tournament.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Which of the following is something a caddie is allowed to do?

    • A.

      Stand behind a player while he or she plays a stroke.

    • B.

      Give advice to your player on which club to use or where to hit the ball.

    • D.

      Give advice to other players of which you are not caddying for.

    Correct Answer
    B. Give advice to your player on which club to use or where to hit the ball.
    Explanation
    A caddie is allowed to give advice to their player on which club to use or where to hit the ball. This is one of the main roles of a caddie, as they provide guidance and strategic advice to help the player make the best decisions during the game. Standing behind a player while they play a stroke, touching the putting green to indicate a line of putt, and giving advice to other players are all actions that a caddie is not allowed to do according to golf rules.

      Keep kids on track

    • B.

      Carrying their bags

    • C.

      Help with confusing situations

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the Above
    Explanation
    Caddies are included in SCJT tournaments for multiple reasons. Firstly, they help to keep kids on track by providing guidance and support throughout the game. Secondly, they assist in carrying the players' bags, which can be physically demanding and tiring for young participants. Lastly, caddies are there to help with any confusing situations that may arise during the tournament, ensuring that the players have a smooth and fair experience. Therefore, all of the given options are valid reasons for including caddies in SCJT tournaments.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    If a player declares his ball unplayable, which of the following would NOT apply?

    • A.

      If two club lengths do not get the player out of trouble, drop the ball more than two club lengths with a one stroke penalty added to the score.

    • B.

      Play a ball as near as possible to the spot from which the original ball was played no closer to the hole.

    • C.

      Drop a ball behind the point where the ball lay, keeping that point directly between the hole and the spot where the ball is to be dropped.

    • D.

      Drop a ball within two club lengths of the spot where the ball lay, but not nearer the hole.

    Correct Answer
    A. If two club lengths do not get the player out of trouble, drop the ball more than two club lengths with a one stroke penalty added to the score.
    Explanation
    When a player declares their ball unplayable, they have several options for dropping the ball. They can drop it within two club lengths of the original spot, but not nearer the hole. They can also drop it behind the point where the ball lay, keeping that point directly between the hole and the spot where the ball is dropped. Another option is to play a ball as near as possible to the spot from which the original ball was played, but no closer to the hole. However, dropping the ball more than two club lengths with a one stroke penalty added to the score is not one of the options for an unplayable ball.

    D. SCJT events are designed to encourage participants to have fun, learn the basic fundamentals of the game and provide an opportunity to advance and grow.
    Explanation
    The given answer states that SCJT tournaments for ages 7-10 are designed to encourage participants to have fun, learn the basic fundamentals of the game, and provide an opportunity to advance and grow. This aligns with the purpose of youth tournaments, which typically focus on creating a positive and enjoyable experience for young players while also helping them develop their skills and progress in the sport.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Under the SCJT disqualification policy for players age 7-10, if a player incurs a penalty for disqualification for any reason other than code of conduct or unauthorized use of electronic devices, the player will be assessed the max score for the hole instead of disqualification.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    According to the SCJT disqualification policy for players age 7-10, if a player is disqualified due to any reason other than code of conduct or unauthorized use of electronic devices, they will be given the maximum score for the hole instead of being completely disqualified. This means that even if they incur a penalty, they will still be allowed to continue playing and their score will be recorded as the maximum possible for that particular hole. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    If a player hits a ball and can-not find it, how much time does the player have to search for the ball before it is considered lost?

    • A.

      3 minutes

    • B.

      5 minutes

    • C.

      7 minutes

    • D.

      As much time as it takes to find the ball

    Correct Answer
    B. 5 minutes
    Explanation
    The player has 5 minutes to search for the ball before it is considered lost. This time limit is set by the rules of the game. If the ball is not found within 5 minutes, it is deemed lost and the player will incur a penalty.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    How many caddies may a player have at any one time?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      There is no limit

    Correct Answer
    A. 1
    Explanation
    A player may have only one caddy at any one time. This means that they are allowed to have one person assist them in carrying their golf clubs, providing advice, and helping them navigate the course. Having more than one caddy would provide an unfair advantage and disrupt the flow of the game. Therefore, the correct answer is 1.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    If a player declares their ball unplayable and they are in a bunker, which of the following must be followed:

    • A.

      The player may drop a ball outside the bunker and continue play with no penalty.

    • B.

      The player must drop the ball inside the bunker and continue play with no penalty.

    • C.

      The player must drop the ball inside the bunker and continue play with a one stroke penalty.

    • D.

      The player may not declare their ball unplayable in a bunker.

    Correct Answer
    C. The player must drop the ball inside the bunker and continue play with a one stroke penalty.
    Explanation
    If a player declares their ball unplayable while in a bunker, they must drop the ball inside the bunker and continue play with a one stroke penalty. This is in accordance with the rules of golf, which state that if a player deems their ball unplayable, they have three options: to play the ball as it lies, to take relief by dropping a ball within two club lengths of the original spot, or to go back to where they last played from. However, in the case of a bunker, the player is not permitted to take relief outside of the bunker. Therefore, they must drop the ball inside the bunker and incur a one stroke penalty.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    If a caddie commits a penalty under the rules of golf, is the golfer responsible for the caddies’ action?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a caddie commits a penalty under the rules of golf, the golfer is responsible for the caddie's action. In golf, the golfer is ultimately responsible for their own game and the actions of their caddie. The golfer is expected to ensure that their caddie follows the rules and regulations of the game. Therefore, if the caddie commits a penalty, it is considered the golfer's responsibility.
