|With no Local Rules in effect, when may a player practice on the course?|
Under Rule 5.2, in match play a player may practice on the course before or between rounds. In stroke play, on the day of the competition, the player must not practice on the course before or between rounds (on the same day, including a playoff). The player may practice putting or chipping on or near her first teeing area and practice on any practice area. The player may practice on the course after completing play of her final round of the day. These restrictions DO NOT apply to the player’s caddie.
