Condition of Competition for Grooves & Punch Marks

The PGA of America will implement the condition of competition for the PGA Championship, Senior PGA Championship and Grand Slam of Golf. The condition will also be in effect at the three PGA Member National Championships (PGA PNC, Senior PNC and Assistant PNC), the PGA Tournament Series, the PGA Junior Series and the PGA Junior Championship. The condition of competition will not be in effect for the PGA of America Member Winter Championship.

The PGA Tour (including the Champions and Korn Ferry Tours), European PGA Tour, other members of the International Federation of PGA Tours and the LPGA has adopted this condition of competition at all tournaments beginning in 2017. The condition applies to PGA Tour, Korn Ferry Tour and Champions Tour Monday (event) qualifiers; however, at Thursday pre-qualifiers, the condition will not be in effect.
