• 1.

White-lined areas tying into artificially surfaced roads and paths have the same status as roads and paths, that of _____ .

• A.

Integral parts of the course

• B.

Obstructions

• C.

Hazards

• D.

Ground under repair

B. Obstructions
Explanation
White-lined areas that connect to artificially surfaced roads and paths are considered obstructions. This means that they are seen as obstacles or barriers that can potentially interfere with the normal flow of traffic or movement on the course. Unlike integral parts of the course, which are essential and necessary components, these white-lined areas are not essential and can be seen as potential hindrances. Therefore, they are classified as obstructions rather than integral parts of the course.

A. True
Explanation
Sod seams are the lines where two pieces of sod are joined together.

• B.

Two (2) short air horn notes, repeated

• C.

Three (3) consecutive air horn notes, repeated

A. One (1) prolonged air horn note or weather siren
Explanation
When there is a dangerous situation on the field, such as severe weather or an emergency, the suspension of play needs to be signaled clearly and immediately. One way to do this is by using one prolonged air horn note or a weather siren. This signal is easily distinguishable and indicates to all players and officials that they must stop playing and seek safety.

Explanation
When play needs to be suspended for reasons other than dangerous situations, such as darkness or lightning, three consecutive air horn notes, repeated, will be used as the signal. This distinct and repetitive sound is easily recognizable and can be heard by all competitors on the course, ensuring that they are aware of the suspension and can safely finish their current hole before stopping play.

Rate this question:

• 8.

Explanation
Fire ant hills and French drains, defined by white lines, are considered to be "Ground Under Repair."

Explanation
Wood chips and mulch are considered loose impediments, which means they are natural objects that are not fixed or growing and can be moved without penalty. However, it is important to note that this classification may vary depending on the Notice to Players, which is a set of specific rules or instructions that may override the general rule. Therefore, unless stated otherwise in the Notice to Players, wood chips and mulch are considered loose impediments.

Rate this question:

• 14.

A competitor is prohibited from using a caddie during the EWGA's Chapter Championship or District Semi-Final Championship.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Competitors are indeed prohibited from using a caddie during the EWGA's Chapter Championship or District Semi-Final Championship. This rule is likely in place to ensure fair competition and to prevent any potential advantages that could be gained from having a caddie on the course. Caddies can provide assistance and advice to players, which could potentially give them an unfair advantage over other competitors who do not have access to a caddie. Therefore, to maintain fairness and equal playing conditions, the use of caddies is prohibited in these championships.

Rate this question:

• 15.

A competitor is permitted to use a caddie during the EWGA Championship Finals; however a caddie agreement is required.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Competitors in the EWGA Championship Finals are allowed to have a caddie, but they must have a caddie agreement in place. This suggests that while caddies are permitted, there are certain rules and guidelines that need to be followed. It is important for competitors to have a formal agreement with their caddie to ensure that both parties understand their roles and responsibilities during the tournament.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The explanation for the given correct answer is that in order for a golf ball to be used in official play, it must be listed on the current List of Conforming Golf Balls issued by the United States Golf Association.

• A.

Cleaned and dropped

• B.

Cleaned and placed

• C.

Cleaned and tossed

• D.

Cleaned and replaced

A. Cleaned and dropped
Explanation
When a ball is embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground, it is allowed to be lifted without penalty. The ball must be cleaned and then dropped as near as possible to where it originally lay, but not closer to the hole. This rule applies to situations where the ball is embedded in the ground, excluding sand.

Rate this question:

• 19.

When dropping a ball under the Embedded Ball Rule through the green, the ball when dropped must first strike _____ .

• C.

The teeing ground or part of the course through the green.

• D.

The putting green or part of the course through the green.

A. A part of the course through the green.
Explanation
When dropping a ball under the Embedded Ball Rule through the green, the ball must first strike a part of the course through the green. This means that the ball must hit any area within the course that is not a hazard, the teeing ground, or the putting green. The Embedded Ball Rule allows the player to lift, clean, and drop the ball without penalty if it is embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground. The ball must be dropped in a specific manner, and it must first hit a part of the course through the green before coming to rest.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The explanation for the correct answer "True" is that according to USGA Rule 6-7, the pace of play is strictly enforced and competitors can be penalized for undue delay. To be considered in breach of this rule, competitors must not only exceed the allotted time but also be out of position. Therefore, it is true that competitors can be penalized for undue delay of play if they are both over the allotted time and out of position.

Rate this question:

• D.

A. Over their allotted time AND out of position.
Explanation
Competitors are considered in breach of the rule if they are both over their allotted time and out of position. This means that not only do they exceed the time limit set for their play, but they also fail to keep up with the pace of play compared to the group ahead of them. Both conditions must be met for a competitor to be penalized for undue delay of play.

• B.

One Penalty Stroke

• C.

Explanation
If a player starts her round within five minutes of her starting time in stroke play, the penalty for failure to start on time is two penalty strokes at the first hole. This means that the player will incur a two-stroke penalty before even playing her first shot. This penalty is imposed to ensure that players adhere to the established starting times and maintain the integrity of the competition.

Rate this question:

• 25.

In the Scramble Division of the EWGA Championship, late Scramble team members may join their team between holes, but not during play of a hole.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Late Scramble team members are allowed to join their team between holes, meaning they can join after the completion of one hole and before the start of the next hole. However, they are not allowed to join their team during the play of a hole. This rule ensures that all team members have an equal opportunity to contribute to the team's performance and prevents any unfair advantage. Therefore, the statement is true.

• A.

Infinity.

• B.

Private property lines.

• C.

The opposite side or all the way across the water.

• D.

A. Infinity.
Explanation
When a lateral water hazard is defined on ONLY one side, it is deemed to extend to infinity. This means that the hazard extends indefinitely in that direction, without any specific boundary or limit. It implies that any ball that enters the hazard on that side will be subject to the rules and penalties associated with a hazard, regardless of how far it travels within the hazard.

Rate this question:

• 27.

Under the EWGA Championship Conditions of Competition, when water hazards and lateral water hazards are bounded by out of bounds, the hazard margin extends to and coincides with the out of bounds line.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Under the EWGA Championship Conditions of Competition, if a water hazard or lateral water hazard is bordered by out of bounds, the margin of the hazard extends to and aligns with the out of bounds line. This means that if a player's ball lands in the water hazard or lateral water hazard, it is considered to be in the hazard and the player must proceed according to the rules for hazards. This rule is in place to ensure fair play and consistency in golf tournaments.

Rate this question:

• D.

Sudden death playoffs and sudden victory playoffs

A. Scorecard playoffs and sudden death playoff
Explanation
In the EWGA Championship, ties for all places, except for ties for 1st Place Low Gross in all flights, are determined by scorecard playoffs. This means that if two or more players have the same score, their scores on specific holes or a specific hole will be compared to determine the winner. However, in the case of ties for 1st Place Low Gross in all flights, a sudden death playoff is used. This means that the tied players will continue to play additional holes until a winner is determined.
