Rule of the Day

4-2/0.5 Lead Tape Applied to Clubhead or Shaft During Round

With regard to Decision 4-1/4, may a player remove, add or alter lead tape during a round?

No. However, lead tape that becomes detached from the club in the normal course of play may be placed back onto the club in the same location. If the lead tape will not remain on the club in the same location, new tape may be used. Every effort should be made to restore the club, as nearly as possible, to its previous condition. Alternatively, the club may be used in its damaged state (without the lead tape) for the remainder of the round (Rule 4-3a).

If the tape is altered or damaged other than in the normal course of play, the club may not be used for the remainder of the round, under penalty of disqualification (see Rules 4-2a and 4-3).

golf-history 1955 J. Wood Platt Wins Inaugural USGA Senior Amateur

Oct 01

The USGA Senior Amateur was established in 1955 as a result of a remarkable growth in senior golf. Several senior associations on the district, state and regional level were running events but there was no single event open to all senior male golfers. The USGA was asked to create a competition and thus was born the USGA Senior Amateur, for male golfers 55 years and older. The first championship attracted 370 entrants and was contested at Belle Meade Country Club in Nashville, Tenn. J. Wood Platt defeated George Studinger, 5 and 4, in the final to claim the inaugural USGA Senior Amateur crown.
