PLACING CLUBS IN A HAZARD


ABANDONED BALL OBSTRUCTION


Q: Kathy Scales writes: We were playing a regular round and my husband’s ball came to rest in long rough practically on top of another ball (that had not been found by a previous group, given the thickness of the rough). He moved his ball to a similar lie and played the shot. Should he have been given relief or did he have to play it as it lay, on top of the other ball? A: The abandoned ball is a movable obstruction, Rule 24-1 applies. See Decision 24-1/2. If the ball lies on the obstruction, the ball may be lifted and the obstruction removed and the ball must be dropped as near as possible to the spot directly under the place where the ball lay on the obstruction.

Q: Maurice A. Kaz writes: Is there a penalty for laying a rake in the sand and laying the putter handle across the rake to keep it clean? The rake was about 15 feet away from where the ball was. A: Exception 1 to Rule 13-4 states that a player may place his clubs in the hazard (including bunkers) without penalty, even if it is on the rake.


JOINING A ROUND AFTER PLAY HAS STARTED


Q: Lucille Rhodes writes: In a tournament, can a two- some move up and join another twosome after the round has started? (They have not skipped any holes). Also, can a player start out with one group and change to another group during the round? A: Rule 6-3b states that in stroke play, the competitor must remain throughout the round in the group arranged by the committee, unless the committee authorizes or ratifies a change. If players were to change groups without authorization from the committee, they would be disqualified.
