SITUATION: Player C hitting slice the ball from the tee into the woods. He and friends co-star looking for the next five minutes, which is based on “Rules of Golf” is the time limit allowed for the search of a ball.
COMMON ERRORS: Instead of returning to the tee area under Rule 27-1, on the contrary Player C with a light throw the ball to the side, a few yards from where he expected his ball disappear. Later, he played his third hit of the fairway. If you make a similar mistake, then you will lose the hole in match play. In stroke play there will likely be disqualified due to serious violation of Rule 20-7 and give yourself an extra advantage by throwing the ball out to the side. Penalty stroke play due to not following the rules, is two strokes.
CORRECT PROCEDURE: Penalties for missing the ball is “hit and distance,” (“stroke and distance”) which means you wear a penalty in a single blow and should be returned to the place from where you played the final blow.
