Always make a total effort,
even when the odds are against you.

Here is the reposting of all those "really bad ones" from 2016.

Ask The Rules Guy (From Golf Magazine, August 2017, pg 32)

Question: I was in the final group on the last day of an amateur
tournament. We were on the back nine when a player who'd completed
his round returned to caddie for one of my competitors. That
seemed unfair. Was illegal?
-JOHN GOMEZ. PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD W.I.

Response: Is it unfair of Clark Kent to sneak into a phone booth
and transform into Superman? (Lex Luthor might not think so) While
the quick-change act you describe may be unusual - I prefer a post-
round Scotch, followed by a nap - it's also perfectly legal. Decision
6-4/8 holds that golfers playing in the same competition at different
times can caddie for each other. They can also change, hire or fire
a looper mid-round. There is one no-no: temporarily exchanging caddies
to get advice. Per Decision 8 -1/26, this action would incur loss of
hole in match play, or two strokes in stroke play for each hole where
the transgression occurred. So while Red Bone Ray may read greens
better than Last Call Lou, and you might be tempted to stray, remember:
No caddie-swapping allowed.
