"Larry was playing in a local club stroke play tournament. The tournament in accordance with USGA Rule 14-3, the one that discusses artificial devices or unusual equipment usage on a golf course, disallowed the use of distance measuring devices like LarryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s range finder and his GPS. Yes, he has both. When Larry witnessed another golfer using a course booklet with illustrations of the holes displaying prominent features and distances to the hole marked in 10 yard increments, Larry called foul. Larry thought that there should be disqualification of the player, or at least a one stroke penalty on every hole.
What is the correct ruling?"
