    Player A would have two holes deducted from his score. He would be 7 up.

      Ben you are incorrect.

  4. if not disqualified in match play, then it would be a penalty for each hole in which 15 clubs were used, for a max of 2 holes making the score 11-0

      Close Ben! 11 & what? (not zero)

  5. The match will be awarded to player A as there are not enough holes remaining for player B to even tie. At the turn, prior to the rules violation, player A was up nine dormie. After the max 2 holes awarded, player A would then be up 11; and with nine holes to play, the match would be over.

      So are you saying the match score would be 11&9?

  6. That doesn’t really make sense, but I would assume that out of kindness, perhaps the rules official would award the remaining holes to the poor sap who can’t win a hole even with 15 clubs.

      You score match play by how many holes won & how many holes left to play. For example if a player went 2 up after hole 17, the score would be 2&1. So how would you score the match for our scenario?

      April 20, 2011 at 9:58 am

  7. Then yes, I say the score 11 and 9

      Nice job Ben, 11 & 9 is the correct answer!

      Rule 4-4 Maximum of 14 Clubs
      Match Play – At the conclusion of the hole at which the breach is discovered, the state of the match is adjusted by deducting one hole for each hole at which a breach occurred; maximum deduction per round: Two holes.
