  1. If someone else is playing from the tee, do not tee your ball until he has played.
  2. Always stand still when another player is playing. Do not talk.
  3. Be ready to play when it is your turn.
  4. When you are playing slowly or looking for a lost ball, ask the group behind you to play through, so you do not slow everyone down.
  5. Write down scores on the way to the next hole, not on the green you are leaving.
  6. Never take more than one practice swing, if any.
