 GOLFONLINE - Rule 2: Match Play
The Rules in match play, where each hole is a separate contest, tend to be less complex than in stroke play, because a penalty rarely needs to be more severe than loss of hole.
Also, due to the fact that match play is a hole-by-hole contest, a player's inadvertent breach of the Rules goes unpenalized if a claim is not made by his opponent before either player plays from the next tee.
A key difference, though, is that in match play the player in question is likely either to have had a score for the hole or a penalty of loss of hole.
