|The Ocean State University Men’s Golf Team had the below schedule yesterday:
9am- Practice Round
3pm- 4pm- Strength and Conditioning Workout
The actual length of time for the practice round was 5 hours.
Is this permissible?
No. The institution would not be permitted to conduct a strength and conditioning workout after conducting a practice/qualifying round that exceeded the four hour daily limit because they would have already exceeded the daily limit.
NCAA Bylaw 188.8.131.52.1 states that a practice round of golf may exceed the four-hours-per-day limitation, but the weekly limit of 20 hours shall remain in effect. A practice round played on the day prior to the start of a intercollegiate golf tournament at the tournament site shall count as three hours, regardless of the actual duration of the round.
