July Rules Quiz

Happy 4th of July ladies and enjoy the quiz. From your Rules Guru – Hilary:

Ladies: Answer YES or NO to the following questions: (see below for answers)
1. A player’s ball is just off the green but 10 yards closer to the putting surface than your ball, and it’s on your chipping line. She voluntarily marks her ball to allow you to chip without interference. OK?

Yes

No

2. Your playing partner hits her ball in the woods. The ball is lost, so she drops a ball next to the point where the ball entered the woods, takes a penalty stroke, and plays on. OK?

Yes

No

3. Your opponent uses tees which are 4.5 inches long. OK?

Yes

No

4. After you sink your putt in Match play, you concede your opponent’s one-footer for par to halve the hole, but she taps in anyway. OK?

Yes

No

5. Your partner’s ball is on the green. She wants to clean it, so she puts a tee down to mark the ball’s position and picks the ball up and cleans it. OK?

Yes

No

6. You’re about to putt out for a bogey on a par 4, and you ask your match-play opponent how many strokes she has taken. She says “five,” and waits until you make the putt, then says; “No, I meant four,” which is correct. OK?

Yes

No

ANSWERS:
1.) No. The ball was lifted without a request from you. It’s a one-stroke penalty for the player, and the ball must be replaced (15.3b (2)).

2.) No. She should have taken a one-stroke penalty and played from the spot where she took her last shot (18.2b).

3.) No. A tee must be no longer than 4 inches (Definitions).

4.) Yes. In match play, this type of practice is OK, but remember a concession cannot be declined or withdrawn. (3.2b).

5.) Yes. You can use a tee to mark the position of a ball but be sure it will not interfere with the other players’ line of putt. (Definitions).

6.) No. She must not give wrong information about her score. She loses the hole (3.2d).
