QUALIFYING: Monday, May 4, 2020 - Wallingford Country Club (Wallingford)

General Information:
The Rules of Golf as adopted by the United States Golf Association govern play.  This information sheet, the CSGA Hard Card and any site-specific Local Rules and Conditions of Competition sheets are supplements to the Rules of Golf.  Local Rules of the host course do not apply.

Schedule of Events:
Monday, May 4, 2020 – Qualifying Round (18 Holes)

18 holes of stroke play.

Qualifying Positions:
The number of players advancing, including those tied at that final position, will advance to the 17th Russell C. Palmer Cup at the Country Club of Waterbury on May 26th & 27th, 2020.

Per the Russell C. Palmer Cup alternate policy, any player with the next best score after the cut line will be placed on the alternate list.  Alternates will be randomly ranked and may be placed into the starting field to fill any remaining spots necessary to build a full field or to replace an exempt or qualifying player that withdraws after qualifying has been completed.  

A player may carry his own bag or employ a caddie. Players are responsible for any fee incurred for the use of a caddie.  There are no club caddies available through Wallingford Country Club.  Players are entitled to employ a caddie and use a golf cart with the only restriction being that of the cart limitation outlined in the “Golf Carts” section of this notice.

Golf Carts:
The use of a cart is permitted but not included in your entry fee. Each starting time is limited to one cart per twosome or two carts per threesome. 

Proper golf attire is required at all times by players, caddies and spectators. Shorts must be Bermuda length.  Shirts must have a collar and be tucked in.  Jeans of all kinds, cargo pants/shorts, tee shirts and tank tops are prohibited.  Hats must be worn in a traditional manner.

Rule 4.3a is modified in this way:  During a round, a player must not wear shoes with traditional spikes (that is, spikes having single or multiple points designed to penetrate deeply into the surface of the ground (regardless of whether made of metal, ceramic, plastic, or other materials)) or spikes of any design that are entirely or partially made of metal, if such metal may come in contact with the course.

Driver Heads & Golf Balls:
Local Rule G-1 and G-3 are in effect.  A player must not make a stroke with a clubhead or golf ball that is not on the current listing of the USGA List of Conforming Driver Heads or List of Conforming Golf Balls. Penalty for breach of this Rule is disqualification.

You must contact the CSGA at (860) 257-4171 if you must withdraw from this qualifier.  A competitor who fails to notify the CSGA of his withdrawal may be subject to disciplinary actions by the CSGA.
