Whadaya think?

That would be sweet.

If they answer it, I'd be fuming.

Go for it. Call it an experiment. :)

OK - I'll get on it tomorrow....This should be interesting - especially if he sees the text is identical to what you sent...

I have no clue why this would be.

I mean, I asked a question about a USGA regulated event. Not one outside the US. The fact that I live 2 hours from the international border should have no bearing on whether or not the question can be answered, albeit with a disclaimer explaination accompanying it.

Don't you think?

I have a feeling if I sent a question to the R&A I would get an answer like you did.

Stupid yes, but if they have this as a formal arrangement, they're not likely to bend the rules for some goatee wearing Canuck from Regina. :p

Even if he does play Mizunos.

It does seem a little odd but the wording makes it clear that, "we are unable to answer questions that are posed from outside this jurisdiction".

Isn't it interesting that they call it a "jurisdiction" when there are no laws in play here?

From what I have been told, the ROG over the past 50+ years, have been written largely by lawyers who are associated with the USGA and R&A respectively. Therefore, they take a "legal perspective" when writing this stuff. And I can only imagine the discussions they had when arguing over who would "call the shots" in which part of the world.

FWIW - the email went out today.

You know it might be interesting for you to copy and paste the text and send it along to the R & A (they will see your Canadian address etc).

We can then compare notes to see if they interpreted the rule the same way...

My interpretation is that all people outside the US are idiots, and they get alot of e-mails from jerks like me. So, this is like passing the buck. ;)

That's what I think.....stupid jurisdiction BS garbage.... :p
