10.1 Time allowed before striking the ball
So as not to delay the match, the time allowed for a player to analyze and study a strategy is 3 minutes. Once this time is up the opponent or judge will give a first warning but no penalty will be applied. Should the same thing happen again the penalty applied will be to miss a turn.
10.2 Help and advice
Neither giving nor asking another player for advice on the field is allowed except with a partner in a pair.
When playing in pairs, partners are allowed to give any kind of advice to each other. A partner may indicate a point to aim at or where to position a ball by pointing with his hand, foot or head of the putter. Once the point is indicated in this way he must stand back while his partner takes the shot.
