Two or more players
may at any time mutually agree among themselves to a joint concession of their
putts, even if the putts to be conceded are not of an equivalent length or degree
of difficulty, and thus, for example, a 2-foot putt one player needs for a par
may be exchanged for a 50-foot putt another player has to have to save a double-bogey.
However, insofar as possible, all players in a playing group should be included
in the arrangement and derive some benefit from it, and if a player who is not
a party to the proposed transaction shall raise an objection to its terms and
he cannot then be mollifed by his subsequent inclusion in the compact or by the
promise of some future accommodation, the contemplated agreement is thereby nullified
and rendered void.
