Second that. If you're gonna quit, at least have the decency to tell the TD. Now if you don't, you get punished. Good way to change the culture
If you quit mid round because your playing like shit you should be penalized. If you don't come back second round because you played like shit first round you shouldn't be penalized if you inform TD, imo.
What about the classic hungover/over sleeping 2nd day of a weekend tourney. You didn't have the TD's #, its pointless to drive there way late after tee-off to inform TD, should they be penalized? Probably not, but if the TD feels slighted, then you will recieve a 5 point deduction, unless it allows you to sandbag, then maybe no deduction at all?
First situation, you wouldn't be penalized. Second one, might be an exception to the rule, but if you're spending money to play in a 2 day event, and you drink yourself to where you can't make your tee time Sunday morning, you have more to worry about than what your player rating is.
When somebody DNF's the TD puts 999 in for the score on the TD report. This option is still available - and would be used in the first described scenario. For somebody that quits mid-round, players on the card say he left because he was playing poorly, the TD would also enter 999 for the incomplete round and subsequent rounds not played. Now, the TD can differentiate the two scenarios by entering 888....So there will be 2 different ways to show in the TD report players that DNF. Some will be penalized via ratings deduction, some will not. I imagine TD's will be pretty sure of the situation before they go filling in 888's.....j/s...There will be exceptions to the rule.
