5. SHOUT 'FORE!' IF EVER IN DOUBT

If you think your ball might hit or land near another player or member of greenstaff on the course, the customary alert is to warn them with a shout of ‘FORE!’

Just because some players you see on TV merely raise an arm in the general direction of the crowd lining the fairway doesn't make it an acceptable procedure.

Early verbal warning when the ball is still in the air is a must. It could save a life.
