Rules of Golf explained with John Paramor: Playing from the wrong tee

NCG's Rules of Golf expert Steve Carroll and former European Tour chief referee John Paramor talk us through another sticky situation on the golf course
 

In this Rules of Golf Explained series in association with TaylorMade, I’m delighted to be joined by former European Tour chief referee John Paramor to discuss various situations in which you might find yourself on the golf course and how you deal with them within the boundaries of the game’s laws. In this episode, the focus is on playing from the wrong tee.

Rules of Golf explained: Playing from the wrong tee

It’s one of those things that you never really expect to happen to you or a playing partner – and then when it does you don’t really know what to do. So I’ve set the scenario up and John is on hand to explain what happens next.

This series is in association with TaylorMade and filmed at Sunningdale Heath Golf Club.
