Pace of Play Policy
All players are expected to adhere to the Outlaw Tours Pace of Play Policies. Rule 6-7 states, in part: The player shall play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines which may be laid down by the Committee. The following pace of play guidelines, penalties, and fines for stroke play competitions have been adopted:

Definition of “Out of Position”
The first threesome or foursome to start will be considered out of position if, at any time during the round, they exceed the time allotted to play, as detailed on the applicable course’s Pace of Play Chart.

Any subsequent group will be considered out of position if, at any time during the round, they (a) exceed the allotted time to play or (b) reach a par-3 hole that is open and free of play or reach a par-4 or par-5 hole and have not cleared the teeing ground before the hole is open and free of play.

NOTE: The Rules Committee reserves the right to time a group when the Rules Committee deems it necessary.

Monitoring Group
When play is in threesomes, the first group in each segment to start will be notified by a Rules Official of monitoring and timing. Any subsequent group out of position will not be informed of monitoring and timing unless asked by the player(s).

When play is in twosomes, all groups will be informed by a Rules Official of monitoring.

Timing
At the discretion of the Rules Committee, once a group is determined to be out of position, players in the group may be timed. Other than on the putting green, the timing of a player’s stroke will begin when it is his turn to play and he can play without interference or distraction. Time spent determining yardages will count as time taken for the next stroke.

On the putting green, timing will begin after a player has been allowed a reasonable amount of time to mark, lift, clean, and replace his ball, repair his ball mark and other ball marks on his line of the putt and remove loose impediments on his line of the putt.

NOTE: A player is permitted 40 seconds to play a stroke, and an extra 20 seconds (for a total of 60 seconds) will be allowed for:

(a) the first player to play a stroke on a par-3 hole;
(b) the first player to play a second stroke on a par-4 or par-5 hole;
(c) the first player to play a third stroke on a par-5 hole;
(d) the first player to play around the putting green; and
(e) the first player to play on the putting green

Any player in a group being timed, who exceeds the applicable time to play a stroke, will be informed as soon as practicable.

Penalties During the Round
First Offense: One timing exceeding the applicable time to play a stroke, no penalty.
Second Offense: One more timing (total of two) exceeding the applicable time to play, a one (1) stroke.
Third Offense: One more timing (total of three) exceeding the applicable time to play a stroke, a two (2) stroke penalty.
Fourth Offense: One more timing (total of four) exceeding the applicable time to play a stroke, disqualification from the event.

NOTE: Any timing exceeding the applicable time to play will be carried over throughout the round.

In the administration of the pace of play guidelines, a member of the Rules Committee shall not tolerate abuse, oral or otherwise, by a player. Such abuse may constitute conduct unbecoming of a professional and disqualification from the tournament without refund.

Appeals
Any appeal of a penalty and fine must be referred to the on-site Tournament Director immediately upon completion of the player in question’s round. The Tournament Director’s decision shall be final. If the player in question does not appeal immediately upon conclusion of his round, any penalties and fines shall stand.

Entry
Tournament registration is available through our website under the tournament schedule. Simply click on the registration button next to the tournament you wish to sign-up for. Entries will be taken on a first paid basis. MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover Card and debit cards will be accepted through online registration and a 3% transaction fee will be applied through PayPal which the tour uses as a payment processor.

NOTE: Debit Cards with daily limits less than total entry fees will not be accepted.

Payments by Check/Money Orders
Players wanting to pay by check &/or money order are due 7 days prior to the start of the event. Players may pre-pay for the entire series upfront via check/money order. Make payable to: Outlaw Tour

Eligibility
The Outlaw Tour is open to male players who by definition are Professional players. All players must be at least 18 years of age prior to playing in an Outlaw Tour event.

Event Registration
Participation in Outlaw Tour events is limited to players that meet the descriptions in the Eligibility section. All entries must be received prior to the published entry deadline by registering for an event or series of events online through the Tour website. The Tour does not normally allow walk-up or on-site registrations. If space is available and a player wishes to enter an event after the posted deadline, a $75 late fee will be added to the entry fee. The entry fee is inclusive of a greens fee, the use of a shared cart, range balls, prize pool, management, processing fees and any other minimal fees deducted to fund the Gunslinger Bonus Pools. It does not include optional side game entries if offered. Course employees or those players with privileges at the venue must pay the published entry. Should the course agree to waive any course fees for those players it is understood that any return of those fees will be credited back to the card used to register after the event has concluded and all billings between the Outlaw Tour and the course have been reconciled.

Alternate List Policy
To expedite the replacement of a withdrawing player, any player desirous of being added to the alternate list must register and pay the entry fee using the link on the Schedule page for that event. Once registered, should an opening become available prior to 5:00 PM (Arizona time) on Sunday before the event, the Tour will contact the next player per the policy below and advise them they are in the field. All players remaining on the alternate list as of the start of the event will have their fees credited back to the card used. The player’s card issuer will determine when the credit is actually posted back to the account (usually 1 to 3 business days).
-Where an alternate list exists, the following procedure will be used to fill the position:
-Where start times have not been published, the first player on the list will be offered the position into the field.
-Where start times have been published, the next player on the list and follows will be offered the position into the field until remaining spots are filled.

Withdrawals / Cancellations / No-Shows
After making a financial commitment to participate in an event, a player shall not withdraw, either before or after registering for said event provided that:

The registrant understands that the deadline to withdraw is 5:00 PM (Arizona time) the Sunday prior to the event and that should the need to withdraw after that deadline passes, that any refund, be it partial or in total, of the entry fee is at the sole discretion of Tour management.
Any registered player who qualifies for a PGA Tour & its subsidiaries, Web.com, Champions Tour or European Tour before the first day of play will receive a refund of their entry fee less course costs if a replacement player cannot be found, if the events coincide AND the players spot in that field can be verified. For these requests, when granted, the event purse will be reduced if a replacement player is not available per policy and timing. Once a player hits a shot in an Outlaw Tour event, there are no refunds.
If after the final withdrawal deadline and prior to starting the first round of an event, a player withdraws because of sickness or injury, a Medical Doctor’s note (on Doctor’s Letterhead) stating you are physically unable to compete in any golf competition must be emailed to the Tour Director at jesseb@outlawtour.golf within 24 hours to be eligible for a refund.
ALL Medical withdrawals are subject to a $50 fee withheld from the refund.

Any player who withdraws from an Outlaw Tour event due to a medical withdrawal and then participates in any event during the same time, will null and void the medical withdrawal notice and forfeit 100% of entry fee.
The purse will be reduced for any PGA Tour or medical withdrawal unless a replacement player can be found.
The player requesting the withdrawal will remain financially committed to the course and their fees associated with the event unless the course waives them.

To withdraw, the player shall notify the Outlaw Tour, prior to the above deadline, of the reason for the withdrawal by sending an email to jesseb@outlawtour.golf to confirm. If after the deadline, should a replacement player not be found by the 5:00 PM (Arizona time) deadline, the withdrawing player remains financially committed to the event. If the entry fee, either partially or in total, is returned to the player it is subject to a $25 processing fee. Any request to withdraw within 24 hours of the start of an event will not receive a refund of any amount or for any reason unless it is relates to the PGA Tour exception above.
During a round, a player may withdraw only due to injury or other disability which requires medical attention or a serious personal emergency. The player shall notify any Committee or Tour Staff member of his/her reason for withdrawal. Poor play is not an acceptable reason for withdrawing from an event.
Once a player has commenced play he shall not fail to return his scorecard to the Committee without being subject to review and possible suspension from the Outlaw Tour.
Any confirmed player that does not show will forfeit his entry fee for that event.
If play is suspended due to rain or any other weather phenomenon at any time during the first round, play will resume later that day or the next day, weather and/or scheduling permitted.

The 86 Claus.
The Outlaw Tour reserves the right to remove a player from the competition if said player returns a non-competitive score from any round in any event. All returned scores at or above 86, including penalty strokes assessed, in a round will be reviewed at the scoring table.

Prizing / Purses
The Outlaw Tour does not "guarantee" any "place" or "rank" amounts. Instead, the entire purse is accumulated by the number of players in the event. There is a minimum of 16 players to hold an event. The purse amount, if published prior to the close of registration, is based on a full Pro field and is published for information only. The actual purse will be determined by the number of pre-paid Pro entries which may be higher or lower.

Events
A portion of each player's entry fee plus any designated sponsor monies is used to generate the event prize pool. The pool will be awarded to the rounded up (.5 or higher pays one more spot) top 33% and ties of the field. The pool will be paid by the Tour and will pay the player via Wells Fargo Direct Pay if they qualify else by mailing a check within 2 days after the event has concluded to the address on file. If mailed, the player assumes all responsibility for delivery of the check. The player may also opt to have the check held until his next event.

All players must complete a W-9 or W-8BEN (foreign players) prior to receiving any payout of winnings and will receive a 1099 tax statement at year-end if sufficient amounts ($600.00 USD) are earned. All players agree to indemnify the Outlaw Tour against incorrect information being provided for income reporting purposes and agree that they are solely responsible for all taxes withheld or not withheld.

Money List
All event winnings are posted to the money list and published on the Tour website.

Format of Play
All events will be played as a stroke play competition. Tour play will be governed by the current Rules of Golf as approved by the United States Golf Association (USGA), and/or modified by Local Rule on the ‘Notice to Contestants’ prepared by the Committee. Tour Officials and staff will be on site at every tournament to handle player check-in, provide assistance, handle scoring/prize pools, monitor the pace of play and make rulings. Any Tour Official may assess penalty strokes for rules infractions or slow play subject to review by the Committee. All decisions made by the Committee shall be final.

To preserve the integrity of the game and our competitions, please be reminded that each player has the duty and responsibility to protect the field from questionable practices and any Rules infractions (Rule 1-3). Any player who is doubtful as to the rights or procedure for either themselves or a fellow competitor will be required to invoke Rule 3-3, and seek clarification from a Tour Rules Official or the Director prior to signing their scorecard. Failure to seek clarification is grounds for disqualification
