Wanted to know if it is legal to use lead tape on your putter in the world amAugust 5, 2019 at 12:35 pm #46479Charles FreelandParticipant
Check USGA for approval.August 5, 2019 at 12:40 pm #46480Ryan SParticipant
Believe the answer is yes. It must be put on before the round begins. However there are some things to be aware of.
The tape cannot be removed, altered or added to. If it falls off during play it can be added back to the same spot as it was. If the old tape does not stick (gotta give it an honest effort to get it back on) you can grab a new piece of the same size and put it in the same place. If it falls off, won’t stick and you have no new tape you can still use your club.
If the tape gets altered/damaged not during normal play, the club can’t be used.
That is what I understand on the ruleAugust 8, 2019 at 8:33 am #46531DONALD MCDOWELLParticipant
I have lead tape on my clubs and wondering if that’s legal and also is the 14 club rule in effect counting the putterAugust 8, 2019 at 8:51 am #46532Mark HancockParticipant
Yes, the 14 club rule is in effect and that always includes the putter.
The World Amateur plays by the USGA rules of golf. Each club may have a local rule in effect and if so, they will point it out on the rules sheet provided at the start of the round.August 8, 2019 at 3:54 pm #46537Ken WeatherfordParticipant
Equipment adjustments? Hmmmm Does a hernia belt count?
