Rule of the Day

6-2a/4 Handicap Stroke Claimed After Hole Conceded

In a handicap match, A holed out in 3. B, having a putt for a gross 4 and forgetting that he was entitled to a handicap stroke at the hole, conceded the hole to A. Before A or B played from the next teeing ground, B remembered that he had a handicap stroke at the last hole. What is the ruling?

A won the hole when B conceded it -- Rule 2-4. It was B's responsibility to know the holes at which he received handicap strokes -- see Note under Rule 6-2. Since B forgot about his handicap stroke, he must suffer the consequences.
