'justified withdrawl' so no action taken against the player. Eg genuine medical condition, family bereavement etc, rather than playing badly and having scored a bad round and throwing in the towel!
Your opponent should offer to mark if her stance or line of putt interferes with your line of putt . One should not have to ask, the opponent should be courteous and mark her ball. If however, her ball does not interfere with your line in any way, your opponent has the right to finish the hole if she wishes. Is this correct?
The penalty for hitting out of bounds is one shot, and you need to play another shot from where you played the original, so effectively it is two.
If you hit you tee shot, 1st shot, out of bounds, add one stroke penalty, 2nd shot, them you are playing 3 off the tee, and therefore 4 from the fairway or rough.
No, but I believe a player can declare it unplayable and therefore take the penalty associated with that rule.
I think you can take a stroke for unplayable and drop within two club lengths (still in the bunker) or along a straight line back from the flag as far as you want...I think. There are rules that specifically address unplayables.
In a fun round, you may consider using your hand wedge to keep the round fun. No sense in taking 5 to get out of a bunker, possibly hurting your wrists, and ruining your spirit for the game...then go practice bunker shots later.
It will at some point rest against the pin! Regardless of that, if you putt with the pin in, and the ball is holed, you receive a two shot penalty. The scenario set out in the question means nothing.
In amateur competition you are usually allowed to do so. Check with the competition committee of the competition you are playing in, there may be certain conditions in place such as you need a medical certificate.
One under par for a hole is one shot less than par, say you make a 3 on a par 4, this is a birdie. One under for a round is where you had a round which was one shot less than par, say you shot 71 on a par 72.
For holes played, or for that round, or for the tournament, the player has taken one less shot to play those holes than par.
If you hit the shot into the water off the tee then yes, you may tee it up again and yes, you are playing 3 off the tee. However, you are allowed to take a drop 2 clubs lengths away from the nearest point of relief from where you believe the ball entered the water, you are also playing 3. You can also go back as far as you want keeping the point where you entered the ball between yourself and the flag and take a drop, you are also playing 3.
Yes, one stroke penalty, and you must play the ball as it lies. If it was however stopped or deflected by an opponent or their equipment, the ball must be played as it lies and there is no penalty.
Rule 27. Ball Lost or Out of Bounds; Provisional Ball Definitions All defined terms are in italics and are listed alphabetically in the Definitions section. 27-1. Stroke and Distance; Ball Out of Bounds; Ball Not Found Within Five Minutes a. Proceeding Under Stroke and Distance At any time, a player may, under penalty of one stroke, play a ball as nearly as possible at the spot from which the original ball was last played (see Rule 20-5), i.e., proceed under penalty of stroke and distance. Except as otherwise provided in the Rules, if a player makes a stroke at a ball from the spot at which the original ball was last played, he is deemed to have proceeded under penalty of stroke and distance. b. Ball Out of Bounds If a ball is out of bounds, the player must play a ball, under penalty of one stroke, as nearly as possible at the spot from which the original ball was last played (see Rule 20-5). c. Ball Not Found Within Five Minutes If a ball is lost as a result of not being found or identified as his by the player within five minutes after the player's Side or his or their caddies have begun to search for it, the player must play a ball, under penalty of one stroke, as nearly as possible at the spot from which the original ball was last played (see Rule 20-5).
It all depends on how you hit the ball. Some people can use a 9 iron in the tee box on a 3 par hole.
If it happens on a golf course, whoever was driving it. If you are a member you should have insurance.
You mean height. Some grass species can be as tall as over 9 feet like bamboo or elephant grass. Other grasses grow up to 6 feet in height. Lawn grasses, on the other hand, never see a height of more than 4 to 5 inches before they are cut to 1.5 to 3 inches tall.
You have to take a penalty drop, which is two club lengths from the nearest point of relief. The nearest point of relief being no closer to the hole.
In fact for a ball declared unplayable you have 3 options:-
1) Return and play another shot from a point as near as possible to where that ball was last played (stroke & distance).
2) drop the ball within 2 club lengths of where the ball lies, no nearer the hole.
3) Drop as far back as you like keeping the position of the ball in line with the flag.
Rule changed to dropping at arm's length in 1984.
You can wear a golf on your right hand, there is no issues with this in regards to the rules. However, the reason the majority of golfers wear a golf on there left hand is to reduce the pressure needed to grip the club.
Basically if you want to return a score, you keep going until the ball is holed, otherwise you will have a NR. But this is only for medal play. In stableford you can pick up after you are two shots over your set score (see below) unless you want to return a gross score.
But when the scores are tallied, only two over your set score counts. For example if you get no shot on one hole, say a par 4, if you make a 7 your score is reduced to 6. If you get a shot on a hole, say a par 4 and you make an 8 your score is reduced to a 7. If you get two shots on a hole, say a par 4 and you make a 9, your score is reduced to an 8.
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.
A player tees off from the designated teeing ground on the first hole, they then finish the hole in the lowest amount of strokes following the rules of the game. They then repeat 17 more times.
The smallest ball permitted by USGA rules is 1.68 inches in diameter, which would yield a minimum volume of about 2.48 cubic inches (40.68 cm3) -- the dimples vary in number and depth, so the displaced volume would be slightly smaller. Historically, there was a smaller "British" ball that yielded some advantage in distance.
How to compute
V = 4/3 (pi) r3 (4 x 3.1416 x radius cubed)
How to measure
The easiest way to check would be to put a golf ball in a beaker of water. Fill a 200 ml beaker with water, and place the ball in. Catch the overflow in another measured beaker. Since water is almost exactly 1 ml = 1 cc, the liquid displaced by the completely submerged ball will provide a close estimate of its volume in cm3.
You can putt with any club in your bag. There is no rule that you must putt with a putter; using one just makes it easier to not miss. Pro's have even pitched off greens!
You are allowed to tee the ball within two clubs lengths, behind the tee markers.
No, but you will risk losing the ball you are playing with and most likely someone will take it for their own.
