Rules of Golf
27/8 Ball Found After Search Exceeding Five Minutes Is Then Played
A player searches for his ball for five minutes and does not find it. He continues to search, finds the ball and plays it. What is the ruling?
The ball was lost and therefore out of play when the five-minute period allowed for search expired -- see Definitions of "Ball in Play" and "Lost Ball." When the player played a stroke with a ball out of play, he played a wrong ball -- see Definition of "Wrong Ball" -- and incurred a penalty of loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play -- Rule 15-3. In stroke play, he was disqualified if he did not correct the error by proceeding under Rule 27-1 before playing from the next tee -- Rule 15-3b.

The Durham Junior Golf Tour (DJGT) is excited to announce a new three-year strategic partnership with Durham College (DC) commencing the 2016 season. DC will be the title partner of the tour for the next three seasons. Over the years, several of our alumni have attended DC and had successful playing careers with the Durham Lords.
Founded in 1967, DC is located approximately one hour east of Toronto. With campuses in Oshawa and Whitby and a learning site in Pickering, the college offers more than 12,000 full-time post-secondary and apprenticeship students access to more than 140 full-time and 16 apprenticeship programs through its Centre for Food and eight academic schools. This includes the schools of Business, IT & Management; Continuing Education; Health & Community Services; Interdisciplinary Studies; Justice & Emergency Services; Media, Art & Design; Science & Engineering Technology; and Skilled Trades, Apprenticeship & Renewable Technology. The Durham Lords have a tradition of excellence that has been developed and continued year in and year out by dedicated staff, first-rate coaches and talented and focused student-athletes from around the province and across Canada.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with the DJGT for the next three seasons," said Durham College Director of Athletics, Ken Babcock. "They do an excellent job in developing and promoting junior golf throughout the Durham and Peterborough Regions. We are looking forward to building a strong relationship with the tour and working with its membership to grow the game of golf."
YouTube Channel - Player Videos
In keeping with our constant desire to enhance the tour, we have a number of initiatives planned for the 2016 season; first of which is the introduction of a College/University recruiting service. In order to host and promote our player profiles, we are happy to announce that the Durham Junior Golf Tour now has its very own YouTube Channel. Please take a moment and subscribe to our channel.
In an effort to continue the development of and to further enhance the athlete experience at Durham Junior Golf Tour events, the DJGT has implemented new guidelines as it pertains to onsite coaching and event observation.
Jumpstart Community Partner
Raising funds. Lifting spirits. Supporting dreams
The Durham Junior Golf Tour is thrilled to be recognized as a Community Partner with Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities. Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.
The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.
Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.
Community Partners, like the Durham Junior Golf Tour work with local Jumpstart Chapters to identify the kids whose families need Jumpstart’s funding assistance to get them off the sidelines and into the game. What kids do is up to them; we’re here to help them do it.
