Bag Tag Rules

2013 WeDGE Bag Tag Guidelines

Conduct

1. Everyone is on their honor to conduct themselves according to the rules and within the spirit of competition. Have fun. It’s only a tag. The purpose of the Bag Tags is to encourage friendly competition among WeDGE members.
2. Each player must have their Bag Tag at all times and visible on their bag.

Rounds

1. You may play for tags at any time, at any course. Tag rounds must be 18 holes unless otherwise agreed upon by all players in the round. The Player shooting the lowest score receives the lowest tag. Ties are won by the holder of the lower bag tag at the beginning of the round.

2. You don’t have to play back-to-back challenge rounds against the same player or in a multi-player match with the exact same opponents. However, if all parties agree, consecutive round challenges are allowed.

3. Incomplete round: If a player does not complete a bag tag challenge round, the exiting player should trade tags with the player with the highest tag number. If play is stopped by all players before the round is complete, no tags are exchanged. This could be due to hazardous weather, physical emergency or mutual agreement.

4. Multiple people at the same course at the same time can have a group challenge.

Tournaments

1. All members are expected to participate in challenges at a tournament.

2. The tags are thrown into a pool and distributed by score at the end of the tourney/league not round by round. Ties are won by the holder of the lower bag tag at the beginning of the tournament.

Reporting

1. Players holding tags must update the club with the results of each challenge. Submit results on the WeDGE facebook page or email Angelo Mascia
2. The winner of the challenge is responsible for reporting the results of the challenge.
A Last Word
Not everyone enjoys playing for tags. If playing in a tag round is not fun for you, don’t do it. You do not need to consent to a tag round. If tag rounds aren’t for you and you’re saddled with a low number, you might want to trade your way out of the line of fire.
