Each team will be able buy a yard stick (1 per team) at a cost of $40. The yard stick will be used to measure a distance from where a putt stopped short of the hole to the hole itself to make the putt. It cannot be used to move the ball closer to the hole. Example: All the players on a team putt for a birdie, all players miss the hole, but one ball is close. The yard stick may be used to measure the distance from the ball to the hole. This distance is scratched off of the yard stick and the team is deemed to have made a birdie.
