Showing up less than 15 minutes before your tee time

Putting with too many balls on the practice green

Failing to pick up the flagstick

Cart-path only? Carry more than one club to your shot

Talking to someone’s ball

Standing behind someone as they putt

Walking in a player’s “through line”

Placing bag on a tee box

Walking across the green with your bag

Lack of divot pattern on the driving range

If you’re terribly behind on a match play hole, pick up
