RULES & ETIQUETTE CORNER
For those that missed last weeks information with respect to the Local Rules you may want to go back and revisit this. There was also a little quiz thrown in to see if it stimulated any conversation about the predicament that Heather found herself in. Similar to the situation Gail finds herself in with the picture above taken on the weekend.
It was our very own Men's Captain who was quick with putting his thoughts into writing to see if all bases were covered, and they were.
His response below:
Heather can play it and she is allowed to touch the ground.
Preferred lies are through the green so in theory Heather can also move the ball one hand span.
Heather can also take a one stroke penalty and move the ball two club lengths no closer to the hole. Rule 19
Heather could go back in line with the pin as far as she likes for one stroke (please make sure you read the rule for this one as it has changed). Rule 19
Return to the tee and play three from the tee.
