Rule 10.2a Advice
During the Round you must not:
• Give advice to anyone in the Competition who is playing on the course, or
• Ask anyone for advice other than your Caddie or partner in foursomes or fourball.
• Touch another player’s equipment to learn information that would be advice if given by or asked of the other player.
Advice is: Any verbal comment or action (such as showing what club was just used to make a stroke) that is intended to influence you or another player in choosing a club, making a stroke, or deciding how to play during a hole or round. BUT Advice does NOT include public information, such as the location of things on the course, the distance from one point to another, or the Rules.
