and Entry Fee

Failure to sign-in on the Computer BEFORE your round will result in disqualification. The System will not allow you to enter a score if you have not signed in and will be flagged to the Competitions team for review. In the event of a system issue – there will be a manual sign-in backup. Once you have signed-in, your entry fee to the competition will be deducted from your purse and a label printed for your card.

Failure to enter your score in the computer for singles competitions may result in disqualification, unless in the exceptional case the computer was out of order, and the player indicates this on his scorecard. This card must be signed by both player and marker. Failure to adhere to above will result in disqualification.
