Rules of Golf
27/8 Ball Found After Search Exceeding Five Minutes Is Then Played
A player searches for his ball for five minutes and does not find it. He continues to search, finds the ball and plays it. What is the ruling?
The ball was lost and therefore out of play when the five-minute period allowed for search expired -- see Definitions of "Ball in Play" and "Lost Ball." When the player played a stroke with a ball out of play, he played a wrong ball -- see Definition of "Wrong Ball" -- and incurred a penalty of loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play -- Rule 15-3. In stroke play, he was disqualified if he did not correct the error by proceeding under Rule 27-1 before playing from the next tee -- Rule 15-3b.

The “Hammer” Golf Tournament
Remembering our friend Chris Karam
The 4th Annual Hammer Golf Tournament is being held to commemorate and celebrate the life of a fine young man named Christopher Wayne Karam (1992 – 2011). Chris passed away suddenly while playing one of his favourite sports, ice hockey, on Saturday, August 20, 2011, at the age of 18, just one week shy of his 19th birthday. He was taken from us, his family and his friends far too early. Chris loved life, his family, his friends and his community. Chris’ other passion was the game of golf. He had been playing golf competitively with the Durham Junior Golf Tour for two years and was a vital member of their golfing family. He had just been with his golf family a few days prior to his passing. His final round of golf was the round of his life. Chris’ contagious smile and his fun loving spirit were felt by all who met him. Chris would absolutely love knowing that so many of his family members and friends get together once a year to play a game that he loved while cherishing their time together and sharing special memories. To date, this very special event has raised $25,000 which has been utilized for both SADS research and help build awareness of SADS. What a wonderful way to commemorate Chris’ life. Please join us and help us make this year’s tournament the most successful so far.

Jumpstart Community Partner
Raising funds. Lifting spirits. Supporting dreams
The Durham Junior Golf Tour is thrilled to be recognized as a Community Partner with Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities. Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.
The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.
Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.
Community Partners, like the Durham Junior Golf Tour work with local Jumpstart Chapters to identify the kids whose families need Jumpstart’s funding assistance to get them off the sidelines and into the game. What kids do is up to them; we’re here to help them do it.
