Whoopsies” answers

1. a. As the clubs belong to Elizabeth there is a one stroke penalty and the ball must be played where it lies, Rule 19-2.

2. c. As the clubs belong to a Fellow competitor (Stroke play) there is no penalty, it is “the rub of the green”. The ball must be played where is lies.

3. a. One stroke penalty, Rule 14-4. Sandy counts her stroke and adds one penalty stroke.

4. c. No penalty as the clubs belong to the Opponent (Match play). However Rebecca has two options.

1) Cancel her stroke and repeat the putt, Rule 19-3 or 2) Play the ball as it lies.

5. a. One stroke penalty, and play the ball where it lies, Rule 19-2. (Both Stroke and Match play incur the same penalty.)

6. b. Pat gets no additional penalty. In both Match and Stroke play when you drop a ball under a Rule you must re-drop if you hit your equipment, Rule 20-2.
There is no limit to how many times you may do this, but your partners will call you a klutz!

I hope this helps you,
Hilary
