DA Official 2007 Yoot Shoot Covenants


Section 1.  This will be played in a scramble format.  No Mulligan's!  You swing and miss...you're out…..next person up!   If your team is less than 4 players, you are NOT allowed to take extra shots in place of the missing person.  It is the team’s responsibility to make sure all players will show up to play.

Section 2.  Off the green, balls are to be placed no further than one club length from the chosen ball.  The ball chosen, may be lifted and placed, but you must mark the ball where it lies before lifting the ball.  Ball position may not be improved, (balls in rough/heather must be hit from rough/heather, etc.)  Ball must be played where it lies on the green. 

Section 3.  One (1) throw per nine is allowed. (1 on the front and 1 on back nine)  The throw does NOT count as a stroke (it is a FREE stroke).  The throw can only be taken if your ball is OFF the green. (You can no longer drop the ball in the cup)   When determined that the throw will be used, all members must throw from the same spot on the same hole (each person CANNOT use the throw on different holes).  The throw must be hand tossed and may not be projected in any other manner. 

Section 4.  Be sure to use your Official Yoot scorecard, and not the course card.  In order for everyone to fairly know which “talent” hole is upcoming, they have been marked on your scorecard.  This is the Official scorecard, which must be turned in.  All scores must be entered on this scorecard, and turned in to your Yoot CEO, Paul Gomez, after your round.  Be sure you participate in each one.  Monitor the team behind you.  If your team should “forget” a talent hole, the whole team will be subject to unbearable yoot peer ridicule, and be stripped to their birthday suit, rubbed with honey, rolled in grass & hay, and placed in a cage with a 2-ton lonely Black Rhino!.  Oh,...............if your team is in contention, you will also have to play the “forgotten” hole on a hole chosen by the Yoot Executive Committee or replayed after the round on the same hole.

Section 5. Highest score on any hole will be 2 over par.  If you are putting for a DOUBLE BOGEY on any hole, you may pick-up your ball and proceed to the next hole.  This means if you miss a bogey putt, pick up your ball, leave the green & mark a double bogey for your score.  DO NOT putt for double bogey, it is a “gimmee”.

Section 6.  On the hole which designates alternate team members to take two shots, this will be for each shot, for the entire hole.  A different person must hit two shots for each stroke.  (ex. First person hit's two drives & rest of team hit's one., Second person hits two iron's, while rest of team hit's one, and so on) Five people always hit for every stroke. 

Section 7.  On the "Same Club" hole, each team member may chose a different club, but must use it the entire hole...including the putt. (choose wisely grasshopper)  It is not necessary that every member hit his or her designated club on every shot, but as your attorney, I highly recommend it!  All players do not have to designate their club until they hit it.  (if the first player hits a good shot, the remaining players may select their club when they get to the ball)

 Section 8.  For the “Missing Person Hole”, each person (all 4) hits from the tee.  Whoever hit the chosen shot (in this case off the tee), will NOT hit the next shot. The hole is played in this method until the ball is in the cup. Only three people should hit every shot after the drive. (If you use your throw on this hole,  all four players are allowed to throw)

 Section 9.  On the "Ol’ Tom Morris" hole, all shots off the tee must be played with the old wood driver provided.  Good Luck!

 Section 10.  On the Freddy “G” Memorial hole, the closest chip shot or approach shot, off the green (must be off green & fringe – shots from rough only), to the pin is the winner. Use the Marker provided.  (Can be fairway approach or chip, but must be played from off the green)

Section 11.  On the par 3 “Feast or Famine” hole, all participants that have paid to enter and then land their ball safely on the green (Fringe NOT included) shall mark their name on the provided marker.   These individuals will share the pot. You are guaranteed at least your money back if you hit the green.

 Section12.  All Par 3 holes are “Closest to the Pin” holes.  Only balls hit with the first shot from the tee qualify.  If you swing and miss on your first shot, you cannot qualify.  If you beat the present location, add your name and mark the spot with the marker provided.

Section13.  On the Longest Drive hole, the ball MUST be in the fairway on the drive from the tee box.  The one club rule does not apply.  Add your name and mark the spot with the marker provided, if you beat the present location. (You Beast!)

Section 14USGA rules are in effect except where noted.  (Including the 14-club rule!)
Common rule infractions;

         No more than 14 clubs in your bag is allowed.  This INCLUDES the putter. 

         All balls on the green must be putted with a club and not “pool cued” (except when required by the rules) 

         Any shots Out of Bounds (OB) will be a loss of stroke AND distance.  (OB will be marked by white stakes and/or listed on the venue scorecard)

         Lateral hazards (red stakes) – you may drop the ball into play anywhere on line to where the ball last crossed the hazard, no closer to the hole.

         You are not allowed to ground your club in a hazard (Sand trap or anywhere the ball lies within a red staked area)

         Note: Yoot Rule WILL allow the use of a laser range finder to identify distances to the pin especially for those handicapped that are unable to figure the distance on their own, using the markers provided by the course. DOH! DOH! DOH!

Section 18.  Two tee shots from each team member must be used during the round.  Par 3’s can be included in this count.  An area has been included on the official scorecard to mark whose tee shot you use.  Mark the initials of the person under the “Drive” column on each hole.  All holes MUST be marked or the team will be disqualified.

Section 19.  Ties for the winner of the Yoot Shoot will be determined by hole-by-hole score regression of the last round played.  The tying teams scores will be compared starting at the lowest handicapped hole to the highest handicapped hole.  (The first team to have a lower score on a particular hole than any of the other tying teams wins)  For example, 3 teams tie. All three shot a score of 4 on the #1 Handicapped hole. (no winner) Two teams shot a score of two, and one team shot a score of 3 on the #2 Handicapped hole (no winner, The team with the score of 3 is out).  One team shot a score of 4, and one team shot a score of 3 on the #3 handicapped hole.  The team that scored 3 wins the Yoot Shoot!

 Section 20   Remember, you are playing for the honor of Drinking from "Lord Yoot's Cup"  Play fair!  Anyone caught cheating will be disqualified from the competition.
