Rules of Golf - Unplayable Lies

Rules of Golf

If you find your ball in play, but in a circumstance where you are not able to make a swing or advance the ball, then you are entitled to claim an unplayable lie. Under this rule you incur a one-stroke penalty, but are permitted to take relief from the troubling situation.

2019 Changes to the Rules of Golf

1. Drop the ball from knee height (NOT shoulder height)
2. Measure the area to drop with the longest club in your bag (except a putter)
3. Time to search for a ball - 3 minutes (NOT 5 minutes)
4. If you accidentally move your ball when searching for it, replace it without penalty
5. No penalty for a double hit - it only counts as one stroke
6. No penalty if your ball strikes the flag stick when you have chosen to leave it in the hole
7. Spike mark and other shoe damage on the putting green can be repaired
8. Ball accidentally moved on putting green - no penalty and replace
9. Ball marked, lifted and replaced on putting green is moved by wind to another position - replace ball on the original spot
10. Penalty areas replace water hazards, and you can move loose impediments, ground your club and take practice swings in penalty areas without penalty, just as you can on the fairway or in the rough
11. In bunkers you can move loose impediments
12. In bunkers you cannot touch the sand with your club in the area right in front of or right behind your ball, during your back swing or in taking practice swings
13. Unplayable ball in bunker - extra option to drop outside the bunker for two penalty strokes
14. Pace of Play - it is recommended that you take no longer than 30 seconds to make a stroke (and usually you should be able to play more quickly than that) and Ready Golf in stroke play is encouraged
