SINGLES MATCH PLAY
TIME OF STARTING
When the two opponents arrive under 5 minutes late on the first hole, they both lose the first hole and they resume play on the 2nd hole all square. If one of the players had arrived more than 5 minutes he would have lost the match. If both players arrive more than 5 minutes late, both players would be disqualified from the competition.
It is permitted by the Rules to complete a hole even if the result is known. This will not be considered as an illegal practice.
CONCESSION OF A STROKE OR HOLE
DOUBT AS TO PROCEDURE; DISPUTE AND CLAIMS
A claim may be made before the start of the next hole. In our case, Jack spoke to the official and he learned that the hole was lost by both players, so he can ask to cancel the concession he made previously. It is important to know that if both player had started hole # 2 without talking to anybody, Eddy would have been 1 up because of the concession and the lack of knowledge of the Rules.
The penalty for carrying more than 14 clubs is the adjustment of a hole. Without considering the result of the first hole, Eddy must lose a hole. In our example, The hole was tied so Eddy became 1 down.
TEAM MATCH PLAY

A player may continue the play of a hole even if the result is known, this won’t be considered as an illegal practice…..AT ONE CONDITION: During the play of the hole, if any of his strokes could have helped his partner, the team would have lost the hole.
