Rules of Bag Tag Challenge
The goal is to get the lowest Bag Tag # before the Bag Tag Award Ceremony
The purpose of the Bag Tag Challenge is to add another fun element to personal, league and tournament rounds of disc golf. Please proudly display your Bag Tag where others can easily see it and have fun.
The Bag Tag Challenge consists of many players buying numbered tags to display on their disc golf bags. The object of the challenge is to work your way up to finish with the #1 tag.
Your goal is to have the lowest numbered Bag Tag possible. When players participate in Bag Tag challenges, the player with the lowest round score earns the lowest numbered Bag Tag among the challengers. Bag Tags must be exchanged immediately following the round. In the event of a tie, the player who started with the lowest numbered Bag Tag will be awarded the lowest numbered Bag Tag.
Give someone a call and challenge them to a round at your favorite course and try to get that elusive #1 tag. If you don’t succeed try again and again. Hold a one round mini in your area to decide the starting order or even the reverse order so the best players start with the highest tags.
Then a tournament will be held when the Top 3 players from each division will have a tri-park playoff for prizes and ultimate bragging rights.
The important thing is to have fun, get out and play more and show some club pride.
The Goal of the South Florida Disc Golf Ambassadors Challenge is to bring the South Florida Disc Golf Clubs and those in the surrounding areas closer together through a unified competition.

Rule 2. Match Play
All defined terms are in italics and are listed alphabetically in the Definitions section.
A match consists of one side playing against another over a stipulated round unless otherwise decreed by the Committee.
In match play the game is played by holes.
Except as otherwise provided in the Rules, a hole is won by the side that holes its ball in the fewer strokes. In a handicap match the lower net score wins the hole.
The state of the match is expressed by the terms: so many “holes up’’ or “all square,’’ and so many “to play.’’
A side is “dormie’’ when it is as many holes up as there are holes remaining to be played.
2-2. Halved Hole
A hole is halved if each side holes out in the same number of strokes.
When a player has holed out and his opponent has been left with a stroke for the half, if the player subsequently incurs a penalty, the hole is halved.
2-3. Winner of Match
A match is won when one side leads by a number of holes greater than the number remaining to be played.
If there is a tie, the Committee may extend the stipulated round by as many holes as are required for a match to be won.
2-4. Concession of Next Stroke, Hole or Match
A player may concede his opponent’s next stroke at any time provided the opponent’s ball is at rest. The opponent is considered to have holed out with his next stroke and the ball may be removed by either side.
A player may concede a hole at any time prior to the start or conclusion of that hole.
A player may concede a match at any time prior to the start or conclusion of that match.
A concession may not be declined or withdrawn.
(Ball overhanging hole — see Rule 16-2.)
2-5. Doubt as to Procedure; Disputes and Claims
In match play, if a doubt or dispute arises between the players, a player may make a claim. If no duly authorized representative of the Committee is available within a reasonable time, the players must continue the match without delay. The Committee may consider a claim only if the player making the claim notifies his opponent (i) that he is making a claim, (ii) of the facts of the situation and (iii) that he wants a ruling. The claim must be made before any player in the match plays from the next teeing ground or, in the case of the last hole of the match, before all players in the match leave the putting green.
A later claim may not be considered by the Committee unless it is based on facts previously unknown to the player making the claim and he had been given wrong information (Rules 6-2a and 9) by an opponent.
Once the result of the match has been officially announced, a later claim may not be considered by the Committee unless it is satisfied that the opponent knew he was giving wrong information.
2-6. General Penalty
The penalty for a breach of a Rule in match play is loss of hole except when otherwise provided.
