Q.How do I take relief from a yellow or red penalty area?
A.When you take relief from a penalty area, you get one penalty stroke. For yellow penalty areas, you have two relief options. For red penalty areas, you have three relief options (the same two relief options as you do for yellow, plus one additional option.)
For a yellow penalty area, you may take relief by dropping into a relief area using (1) the spot at which your last stroke was made under stroke and distance (see Rule 17.1d(1)) or (2) the back-on-the-line relief procedure (see Rule 17.1d(2)). For a red penalty area, you have the two options above for a yellow penalty area, plus an additional option to take lateral relief.
Lateral relief allows you to drop a ball into a relief area measured from where your ball last crossed the edge of the red penalty area. From that reference point, you are allowed to drop outside the penalty area and anywhere within two club-lengths of that spot, no nearer to the hole (see Rule 17.1d(3)). CLICK FOR A VIDEO

Tie Breaking Policy
For the purposes of breaking ties at any time other than determining a champion the following method of tie-breaking will be used:
For an 18-hole competition, use the best back 9, then to best score on the last (18th) hole. If this fails to break the tie then go to the best score on the second last hole (17th hole), then to the best score on the third last hole (16th hole), then to the best score on the fourth last hole (15th hole), and continue through holes one by one to the best score on the first hole.
If the players are still tied after this, the Committee shall flip a coin.
