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.
HOW TO DROP A BALL
Hold ball at arm’s length and shoulder height then drop the ball
If done INCORRECTLY AND THE BALL IS PLAYED
One stroke penalty
OUT OF BOUNDS
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!
UNPLAYABLE BALL, Rule 28
A player may declare their ball UNPLAYABLE AT ANY TIME WHEREVER THEIR BALL MAY BE except IN A WATER HAZARD
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.
