EGU TO PERMIT THE USE OF DISTANCE-MEASURING DEVICES

19th November 2008

The English Golf Union (EGU) has taken the decision to allow Distance-Measuring Devices (DMD) to be used in all its championships in 2009.

The move was agreed by the EGU's Board of Directors following the recommendation of the Championship Committee at its recent meeting at Woodhall Spa and the change will be written into the conditions of each of next year's events.

EGU Officials have contacted the R&A and the other Home Unions to inform them of the move.

Only DMDs that calculate distance will be permitted. Those providing other information such as wind speed, temperature and elevation, will not be allowed. Any player found using such a DMD will be in breach of Rule 14-3 for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.
