Rules, you must be sick of me!


Sorry me again……..hit delete if you like…….

As my table hint sheet had limited space on Tuesday I was unable to fit in EVERYTHING about Rule 28 Unplayable .

I wanted to mainly get across to you that you can call an unplayable even if your partners don’t agree with you! You may be in the wet rough

and know you will hack and hack away to get your ball out. It could be worth it to you to take a one stroke penalty and use Rule 28 Unplayable.

You may be right next to a tree root, or even in the middle of a beautiful fairway and you just don’t like your lie. A couple of Pro golfers called an unplayable in this weekend’s Match play tournament and it saved them strokes.

What I could not fit on the little sheet was the situation if your ball is in a bunker. Bunkers actually have a couple of Rule anomalies but today let’s just stick with the ball unplayable before you all tear your hair out!

Many of you know this but in case.

If your ball is in a bunker Yes you can hit from where you were before BUT for the other two options you cannot take your ball out of the bunker.

So……ball in bunker….you hate it…… on Rule 28.

a) Play a ball where you last hit your original ball hit

b) go back in line with the hole c) drop within 2 club lengths of where ball lays BUT for b and c you must drop in the bunker.

It stinks I know but I did not write the Rules.

Next time I’ll use larger sheets of paper, or give hints that take up less space!

Over and out ’til next week………

Table hints……. Golf Rules


As everyone is not able to play on Ladies Play Day, and so you’re not missing anything apart from the fun, here are the four Rules hints that I made for the lunch tables that you may have missed.

Any questions?………… Fire away.


Stand erect
Hold ball at arm’s length and shoulder height then drop the ball

One stroke penalty


Your ball is Out of Bounds (OB) when ALL YOUR BALL IS OB


Your ball is on the putting green when ANY PART OF IT touches the putting surface


On your tee shot your ball goes through the iron fence on the left side of the green.

Your ball is OUT OF BOUNDS

Replay from teeing ground and take a one stroke penalty

Here’s the last and the longest…..sorry!


with a one stroke penalty…..What are your options?

Play a ball from where you last hit your original ball……or

Drop a ball within two club lengths from where your ball lays, no nearer the hole….or

Drop a ball behind where your ball lays, in line with the hole, as far back as you like

Hope these help you.
