Returning Score Card in Stroke Play. RoG 6-6b and 6-6c;Decision 6-6b/4 and Decision 6-6c/1. Competition Regulation. Revised 2015-02-14.
IN DEPTH Rule 6-6b: Signing and Returning Score Card: "After completion of the round, the competitor should check his score for each hole and settle any doubtful points with the Committee. He must ensure that the marker or markers have signed the score card, sign the score for himself and return it to the Committee as soon as possible. Penalty for breach of Rule 6-6b: Disqualification." 
Rule 6-6c. Alteration of Score Card: "No alteration may be made on a score card after the competitor has returned it to the Committee."

Rule 6-6c makes it important to be able to establish exactly when the score card is considered to have been returned to the Committee. The Committee ought to declare a separate, weather protected and clearly defined area as "Scoreing Area" within which the players may check their scores and settle any doubtful points with the Committee. Even if the score card has been handed to a member of the Committee any doubtful point (e.g. an uninterpretable score for a hole or a missing signature) may be corrected if the player remains within the "Scoring Area".
The "Scoring Area" might be in the secretaries office, the golf shop, a separate room, a tent, a clearly defined area outside the club house etc. 
Note that the Committee expects the players to return their score cards as soon as possible, otherwise the players may be disqualified under Rule 6-6b. 

Suggested wording. This Rule shall always stand under its own headline.

Returning Score Card in Stroke Play
