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.
