Ask Linda #697-Elbow support


I wear a Ace velcro elbow support when I golf and my friends say that's not legal.  I tell them take off their golf gloves and I'll take off the elbow support as I see no difference between the two.  What say ye?

Lou from Turkey

Dear Lou,

A player is permitted to use equipment, such as an elbow support, that is designed to alleviate a medical condition [Rule 14-3, Exception 1]. He may also use eyeglasses, band-aids, and artificial limbs [Decisions 14-3/3, 8, 15].
