Misunderstood rules - Episode #1

This is the first in a series of reminders regarding rules that cause some confusion at the club.


Unplayable Ball (outside a hazard)


There are three options:

1) Stroke-and-Distance Relief

2) Back-on-the-Line Relief

3) Lateral Relief


This diagram is pretty helpful as a quick summary.




For unplayable ball in a bunker, there is a slight variation on the Back-on-the-line relief option


For a full description of the rule see the link below.

Hope this helps.


If there is any other rule you would like added to this series, just drop me an email.
