Answers

1. C. No penalty. Rule 20-1, states if a ball, or ball marker, is accidentally moved in the process of lifting the ball, or marking its position, the ball or marker must be replaced. There is no penalty provided the movement of the ball or marker was directly attributable to the specific act of marking or lifting the ball.

2. A. No penalty. TheDefinition of a “stroke” is the forward movement of the club with the intention of striking at, and moving the ball. As the ball on the teeing ground is not in play until a “stroke” has been made, the ball may be re-teed without penalty, Rule/Decision 18-2a/19

3. C. No penalty. Under the Definition of Water Hazard it states that stakes used to define the margins of a Water Hazard are Obstructions. Rule 24-1a, Movable Obstruction, states that if a ball does not lie in or on the Obstruction, the Obstruction may be removed without penalty.

4. C. Two stroke penalty. TheDefinition of Out of Bounds states that objects defining out of bounds are NOT Obstructions, therefore they must not be moved. If a player removes them they are improving the area of their intended swing breaking Rule 13-2, Ball played as it lies. The penalty is two strokes.

5. C. No penalty. Under the Definition of Loose Impediments sand and loose soil are loose impediments on the putting green but not elsewhere. Rule/Decision 23-1/1 states that loose impediments may be removed by any means except that, in removing loose impediments on the line of a putt, a player must not press anything down. Rule 16-1a (i)

6. C. Two stroke penalty. As we read in the answer for question 5, sand and loose soil are only loose impediments on the putting green. Removing sand from the fringe of the green breaks Rule 13-2. A player must not improve their line of play by removing or pressing down sand or loose soil. The ball must be played as it lies.

I hope this helps you.
