Entries

Identifying the Ball

According to the rules it is permitted to lift and clean the ball for the purpose of identifying it (unless in a hazard), after which time it must be replaced exactly where it was picked up (the divot or plug).

As we are all aware the earth is constantly spinning which means by the time the ball is returned to the ground, the original spot may be approximately 1 foot away with the new spot being nicely covered in grass.

Impossible Lie

A ball that is located either in an impossible location behind an unmovable obstruction or in plain view of an incorruptable opponent.

Irons

The main sticks of torment used to hit the little white ball from tee to the hole.
