Ask Linda #1046-Score totaled incorrectly
Linda, after completing an FBBB [four-ball/better-ball] competition the total scores were added and agreed to by all 4 players. Unfortunately one of the ladies put a wrong total number in the box – actually a 25 instead of a 35. Cards were signed by markers and players.
What would be the actual ruling?

The competitor is responsible for recording the correct score for each hole [Rule 6-6]. The Committee is responsible for the addition of the scores [Rule 33-5]. If the competitor adds the scores incorrectly, the Committee must correct the error. There is no penalty to a competitor for an incorrect total.
