In Golf, out of bounds balls must be replayed from the designated drop area (with a penalty, of course). So, no, you can't move an out of bounds stake to hit a shot.

In golf if you hit OB how far can you move your ball away from the hole?

Out of bounds is the strictest rule in golf, and often the harshest. You have to replay the ball from the exact same place you just played that shot from. So if you are on the tee and hit one out of bounds, you tee it up again and you are now playing your third shot off the tee (This includes the one shot penalty). If you are in the fairway and hit it out of bounds, you replay it from as close as possible to where the original was hit from.


What is an ob in golf?

This stands for out of bounds. It is an area of the golf course or off the golf course which is not in play. If you hit your ball out of bounds, you cannot play your next shot from there, you must re-hit your shot from the place you originally played from. There is a one shot penalty for hitting out of bounds.


How much strokes does an out of bounds in golf cost you?

On the tee you play 2 bals out of bound how do you count the stroke on yr next balls?

If you hit the ball out of bounds, you must still count that shot. Also, for every shot that is hit out of bounds, there is a one stroke penalty. So if you hit two balls out of bounds, then that is 4 strokes, and when you tee off again, that will be your 5th stroke. Hopefully that one stays in! :)

If you hit a bunker shot out of bounds can you rake before you hit your next shot?

When you play a shot from a bunker and hit it out of bounds, you clearly have to replay your shot. But the rules stipulate that the conditions of the previous shot must be recreated. So if you played from sand which was raked, you would rake the sand and place the ball as close to where the last shot was played from in the last shot. If you were in a footprint you would have to make a footprint and place your ball in it, and if you were in a divot, you would make a divot and place the ball in it.

What happens in golf when you hit the provisional ball out of bounds?

If you hit your first ball (1 off the tee) say you think you have lost it in the tree etc or out of bounds you hit your provisonal (3 off the tee), if you now have hit this ball out of bounds you play another provisonal (5 off the tee, your next shot will be 6). If you are playing a stroke play competition, unless you are going to NR you will have to keep going till you get one in play and complete the hole. If you are playing a stableford competition you would simply ding the hole and move on.

How many strokes for hitting a golf ball out of bounds?

There is a one stroke penalty and you must replay the shot from the same position, or as close as possible to original position. Simply, you stand on the tee, you hit your tee shot out of bounds (1), you take your penalty stoke (2) and replay the shot from the tee (3) so when you get down the fairway your next shot is your 4th.

You hit a tee shot down the right side of hole 10 there are some white stakes out of bounds which your ball has come to rest on the right side of how many penalty strokes where do you hit from next?

The proper answer is stroke and distance. You drop a ball where you hit your last shot from and add one to your total. That means you have to count the one you hit out of bounds and the one you're about to hit. Most beer leagues play O.B. like a lateral water hazard - drop within two club lengths of where the ball went out of bounds and add a penalty stroke. Or somewhere nearby. It really speeds up play, but it's not the proper procedure for serious golf.


How many times can you tee a ball up?

You may only tee the ball up when you are on the teeing area, hitting a tee shot. This is usually once per hole for each hole. However, if you hit a ball out of bounds you must hit another shot from where you hit the previous shot from, so you may tee the ball up. Also, if you hit a tee shot and can't find the ball you must go back to the tee and you can again tee it up.

when hit out of bound you must drop in the same place that u hit the shot from and take one stroke for the shot one for the drop and then a third for the next shot.
