Did you know that during a round, in singles, a player must not 1) give advice to anyone in the competition who is playing on the course, 2) Ask anyone for advice, other than the player’s caddie, or 3) touch another player’s equipment to learn information that would be advice if given by or asked of the other player (such as touching the other player’s clubs or bag to see what club is being used). The penalty for breach for this rule is a general penalty.
Advice is defined as “Any verbal comment or action (such as showing what club was just used to make a stroke) that is intended to influence a player in: 1) Choosing a club, 2) Making a stroke or 3) Deciding how to play during a hole or round. But advice does not include public information, such as i) The location of things on the course such as the hole, the putting green, the fairway, penalty areas, bunkers, or another player’s ball, ii) The distance from one point to another, or iii) The Rules.”
