V. COMMENCEMENT OF PLAY
VI. STARTING TIME
(1) Hardship cases such as strikes, etc. will be considered on an
individual basis by the TIGL officers.(2) Teams unable to field enough
players to play on a Tuesday night can try to arrange another
night during the week to play the match. The arrangement must be made
by the members of the teams, not the TIGL officers, and it must be
agreed to by both teams involved. The match must be played prior to
the next regularly scheduled match; thus, generally before the next
A. Matches start between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.. At 5:30 p.m.,
the players must have paid their greens fees, be checked in with the
starter, and be ready to play. A PLAYER WHO IS IN THE PARKING LOT
AT 5:30 GETTING HIS OR HER EQUIPMENT READY IS NOT DEEMED READY TO PLAY!
A. A course/conference rainout is declared if:
(1) Lightning and/or inclement weather conditions exist and no one
is on the course by 5:30 p.m..
(2) The course professional closes the course because of local conditions
(e.g., too wet).
(3) In all other situations, play can be canceled only by the league
officers and the course officers that are present. Do not assume
play has been canceled prior to the 5:30 starting time unless you
have received official notification from the course officer.
B. Alternative scheduling possibilities:
(1) If there is a rainout (nonexcessive), the scheduled matched will
be played the following week, and all subsequent matches will be delayed
one (or more) week.
(2) Cancellation of part of the league schedule will occur only in
the event of excessive rainouts, and will be determined by the league
C. If play has be delayed for more than 30 minutes, play cannot be
continued, and six (6) or more holes already have been completed by
at least 80 percent of the field, then the week's matches are deemed
official and the results for every match will count toward the standings.
The matches in progress at the time of the delay will be considered
over at that point, with each remaining hole considered to be halved.
If less than 80% of the field has completed six (6) holes and play cannot
be continued, the entire schedule of matches for that day will be canceled.
When play is stopped, note your position and turn in your score
VIII. ESTABLISHING HANDICAPS
IX. TEAM ROSTERS
A. All players who competed in the league last season will begin this
season with the handicaps that were in effect at the yearend Jamboree.
B. New players can establish a league handicap by any of the following
(1) Submit a handicap card which is certified by a recognized golf
professional from the state of Florida. (a) Either a USGA or FGA handicap
card is acceptable. The nine hole handicap will equal one half the
eighteen hole handicap.(b) If a new league player has a certified
handicap, a copy of the handicap card must be received by the league
no later than the Friday before the start of the season. If
proof of handicap has not been provided by this date, the player will
be forced to establish a handicap through the league.
(2) When a player without a handicap plays his or her first round,
the player's handicap will be computed after completion of the round
by computing 80% of the differential between his or her adjusted score
and the course rating for the nine holes played. For the second and
subsequent rounds, the handicap will be computed according to the
league handicap system. In the event a player is establishing a handicap
(i.e., first round of play in the league), he or she will play as
the #2 golfer on the team. If more than one player is establishing
a handicap, then the positions played should be in the following order:
#2 position first, #3 position second, #4 position third, and #1 position
last. For example, if two players need to establish handicaps, they
would play as the #2 and #3 golfers; if three players need to establish
handicaps, they would play as the #2, #3, and #4 golfers; and, so
on. In the case where more than one player is establishing a handicap,
the decision as to which establishing position each player fills is
left to the discretion of the team captain or representative.
C. The lowest 50% of all rounds played will be used to compute handicaps
for the yearend Jamboree. A minimum of five (5) nine hole rounds is
required to be flighted for the Jamboree. Players with less than five
(5) rounds will play in the rostered Calloway.
D. In order to participate in the league playoffs at the end of the
year, a player must have played at least five (5) competitive
rounds during the regular season. In the event a playoff is needed to
determine a first half division winner, only players with at least
two (2) competitive rounds will be permitted to participate.
E. Questions regarding handicaps may be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A. Completed team rosters must be received by the Vice President of
Handicapping no later than three weeks before the start of the season.
A TIGL officer must be notified at least 48 hours prior to a scheduled
match if there is to be a change in team rosters.
B. Roster changes will not be permitted after the first Tuesday
in June. Only hardship cases will be considered by the league officers
after this date. Again, the league must be notified at least 48 hours
