In the World Stars of junior golf, we encourage all players to have a caddy.
All players are permitted to have a caddy. Players ages 10 and under MUST have a caddy at all times. Caddies must be at least sixteen years of age.
Caddy is permitted to ride a golf cart while caddying but player must walk during the hole and players can ride only between holes. A caddy must be aware of the rules and assist his player in accordance with the rules. If a caddie becomes disruptive, he will be warned. If this problem continues, the caddie will be dismissed.
USGS Caddy Related Rules
1. Rule 14-2b states that in “making a stroke,” a player shall not allow his caddy to position himself on or close to an extension of the line of play or the line of putt behind the ball. A caddy may position himself in this manner before the player commits to beginning his swing but must move away once the player is set to begin his swing. Failure to do so will result in a two-stroke penalty.
2. Rule 8-2b states that when a player's ball is on the putting green, the player or his caddy may before, but not during, the stroke, point out a line for putting, but in doing so the putting green shall not be touched. No mark shall be placed anywhere to indicate a line for putting. Violation of this rule will result in a two-stroke penalty.
3. Rule 17-3 states that the player's ball shall not strike the flagstick or attendant when the flagstick is attended or the flagstick is in the hole, unattended, or when the ball has been played from the putting green. Should this occur, the player is assessed a two-stroke penalty, and the ball is played as it lies.
4. Rule 8-1 states that a Caddy is one who carries or handles a player's clubs during play and otherwise assists him in accordance with the rules. A player may only have one caddy at any given time. A caddy may be replaced or eliminated at any time by the player. No other person may offer advice or help to a player other than his caddy.
All caddies will be asked to sign a Caddy Policy Form.
