Sneds Tour Members are expected to:
Each 18-hole Sneds Tour event is played as two stipulated nine (9) hole rounds. This allows the field staff on site to shorten an event to nine holes if weather, daylight, etc. will not permit an 18-hole division to complete all 18 holes the day of the tournament. If a one-day, 18-hole event is shortened due to weather the tournament will not be resumed the following day, and a winner will be crowned as long as all participants in a division are able to complete at least nine holes.
At all Sneds Tour events, players will be issued official tournament scorecards. Players are expected to serve as a marker for another competitor. Competitors should check scores at the completion of each hole. Players should keep track of their own score on the "Markers Notes" section of the scorecard. At the completion of the round, players MUST report directly to the scoring area BEFORE signing their scorecard. In the scoring area, a field-staff member will be available for rulings and to aid in the scoring process. Players should remain in the scoring area until scoring is completed for all players in their group. A scorecard is considered returned when placed in the "Scorecard Return Box" and no corrections can be made after it has been returned. It is recommended that a player double check his/her scores as well as verify the scorecard has been signed by the marker and the competitor themselves before placing the card in the box.
For Micro Division events, caddies may assist the player with keeping score, but ultimately it is the players responsibility to keep his or her scorecard. Only players should report directly to the designated scoring area, but caddies should be readily available should a question or dispute arise.
Ties for first place only will be broken by an on-course sudden death playoff. These playoffs will be conducted where space on course permits. Ties for 2nd and 3rd will be broken by the USGA's recommended scorecard playoff method (last nine holes, last six holes, last three holes, last hole). If the tournament has a double tee start, the last nine holes, last 6 holes, etc. is considered to be Nos. 10-18, 13-18, etc.
