Formål: Regel 1 introducerer disse centrale principper for spilleren:

  • Spil banen, som du finder den, og spil bolden, som den ligger.
  • Spil efter Reglerne og i spillets ånd.
  • Du er ansvarlig for at medregne egne strafslag, hvis du bryder en Regel, så du ikke kan få nogen mulig fordel overfor din modstander i hulspil eller andre spillere i slagspil.

1.2a/1
Meaning of Serious Misconduct

The phrase "serious misconduct" in Rule 1.2a is intended to cover player misconduct that is so far removed from the expected norm in golf that the most severe sanction of removing a player from the competition is justified. This includes dishonesty, deliberately interfering with another player's rights, or endangering the safety of others.

The Committee must determine if the misconduct is serious considering all the circumstances. Even if the Committee determines that the misconduct is serious, it may take the view that it is more appropriate to warn the player that a repeat of the misconduct or similar misconduct will result in disqualification, instead of disqualifying him or her in the first instance.

Examples of actions by a player that are likely to be considered serious misconduct include:

  • Deliberately causing serious damage to a putting green.
  • Disagreeing with the course setup and taking it on himself or herself to move tee-markers or boundary stakes.
  • Throwing a club towards another player or spectator.
  • Deliberately distracting other players while they are making strokes.
  • Removing loose impediments or movable obstructions to disadvantage another player after that other player has asked him or her to leave them in place.
  • Repeatedly refusing to lift a ball at rest when it interferes with another player in stroke play.
  • Deliberately playing away from the hole and then towards the hole to assist the player's partner (such as helping the player's partner learn the break on the putting green).
  • Deliberately not playing in accordance with the Rules and potentially gaining a significant advantage by doing so, despite incurring a penalty for a breach of the relevant Rule.
  • Repeatedly using vulgar or offensive language.
  • Using a handicap that has been established for the purpose of providing an unfair advantage or using the round being played to establish such a handicap.

Examples of actions by a player that, although involving misconduct, are unlikely to be considered serious misconduct include:

  • Slamming a club to the ground, damaging the club and causing minor damage to the turf.
  • Throwing a club towards a golf bag that unintentionally hits another person.
  • Carelessly distracting another player making a stroke.

Disqualifying Players Who Know a Rule but Deliberately Agree to Ignore it

If two or more players deliberately agree to ignore any Rule or penalty they know applies, they will be disqualified unless the agreement is made before the round and is cancelled before any player involved in the agreement begins his or her round.

For example, in stroke play, two players agree to consider putts within a club-length of the hole holed, when they know that they must hole out on each hole.

While on the first putting green, another player in the group learns of this agreement. That player insists the two players who made the agreement hole out, and they do so.

Even though neither player who made the agreement acted on it by failing to hole out, they are still disqualified because they deliberately agreed to ignore Rule 3.3c (Failure to Hole Out).

1.3b(1)/2
In Order to Agree to Ignore a Rule or Penalty, Players Must Be Aware the Rule Exists

Rule 1.3b(1) does not apply and there is no penalty if players agree to waive a Rule that they are not aware of or fail to apply a penalty that they do not know exists.

Examples where two players are unaware of a Rule, or where they have failed to apply a penalty, and therefore are not disqualified under Rule 1.3b(1), include:

  • In a match, two players agree in advance to concede all putts within a specific length but are unaware that the Rules prohibit them from agreeing to concede putts in this way.
  • Before a 36-hole match, two players agree that they will play only 18 holes and whoever is behind at that point will concede the match, not knowing that this agreement does not comply with the Terms of the Competition.
    The match goes forward on that basis and the player behind after 18 holes concedes the match. Since the players do not know such an agreement is not allowed, the concession stands.
  • In a stroke-play competition, a player and his or her marker, who is also a player, are unsure if the relief area for ground under repair is one club-length or two. Unaware of the Rule, they agree that it is two club-lengths and the player takes relief by dropping a ball almost two club-lengths from the nearest point of complete relief. Later in the round the Committee becomes aware of this.
    Although neither player is disqualified under Rule 1.3b(1) because they were unaware of the Rule, the player has played from a wrong place and gets the penalty under Rule 14.7 (Playing from Wrong Place). There is no penalty for accidentally giving incorrect information on the Rules of Golf.

1.3c(1)/1
Action of Another Person Breaches a Rule For Player

A player is responsible when another person's action breaches a Rule with respect to the player if it is done at the player's request or if the player sees the action and allows it.

Examples of when a player gets the penalty because he or she requested or allowed the action include:

  • A player asks a spectator to move a loose impediment near his or her ball. If the ball moves the player gets one penalty stroke under Rule 9.4b (Penalty for Lifting or Deliberately Touching Ball or Causing It to Move) and ball must be replaced.
  • A player's ball is being searched for in tall grass. A spectator finds the ball and presses the grass down around the ball, improving the conditions affecting the stroke. If the player, seeing that this is about to happen, does not take reasonable steps to try to stop the spectator, he or she gets the general penalty for a breach of Rule 8.1a (Player's Actions That Improve Conditions Affecting the Stroke).
1.3c(4)/1
Intervening Event Between Breaches Results in Multiple Penalties

When a player breaches multiple Rules or the same Rule multiple times, any relationship between the breaches is broken by an intervening event and the player will get multiple penalties.

The three types of intervening events where the player will get multiple penalties are:

  • Making a stroke. Example: In stroke play, a player's ball is near a bush. The player breaks branches and this improves the area of intended swing (a breach of Rule 8.1a). The player makes a stroke, misses the ball, and then breaks more branches (a breach of Rule 8.1a). In this case, the stroke that missed the ball is an intervening event between the two breaches. Therefore, the player gets two separate two-stroke penalties under Rule 8.1a, for four penalty strokes in total.
  • Putting a ball in play. Examples:
    • In stroke play, a player's ball is under a tree. The player breaks tree branches, improving the conditions affecting the stroke, but then decides the ball is unplayable. The player drops a ball within two club-lengths under Rule 19.2c (Unplayable Ball Relief) and then breaks more tree branches. In addition to the one penalty stroke under Rule 19.2, the player gets two separate two-stroke penalties under Rule 8.1a for improving conditions affecting the stroke, for five penalty strokes in total.
    • A player's ball lies in the fairway and he or she accidentally moves the ball at rest. As required by Rule 9.4 (Ball Lifted or Moved by Player), the player replaces the ball and adds one penalty stroke. Before making a stroke, the player accidentally moves the ball again. The player gets an additional penalty stroke and must again replace the ball, for two penalty strokes in total.
  • Becoming aware of the breach. Example: In stroke play, a player's ball lies in a bunker where the player takes several practice swings each time touching the sand. Another player advises the player that this is a breach of the Rules. The player disagrees and takes several more practice swings, again touching the sand before making a stroke. Correctly informing the player of the breach of the Rules is an intervening event and, therefore, the player gets two separate two-stroke penalties under Rule 12.2b (Restrictions on Touching Sand in Bunker), for four penalty strokes in total.
1.3c(4)/2
Multiple Breaches From a Single Act Result in a Single Penalty

A single act may breach two different Rules. In this situation, one penalty is applied. In the case of two Rules with different penalties, the higher-level penalty will apply.

For example, a player presses down the grass behind his or her ball in play and improves the lie in the rough, accidentally moving the ball as well. This single act (that is, pressing down the grass) breached two Rules, Rule 8.1a (Actions That Improve Conditions Affecting the Stroke) and Rule 9.4b (Lifting or Deliberately Touching Ball or Causing It to Move) and only one penalty applies.

In this case, the penalty under Rule 8.1a is the general penalty and the penalty under Rule 9.4b is one penalty stroke. Therefore, the higher-level penalty applies and the player loses the hole in match play or must add a total penalty of two strokes in stroke play under Rule 8.1a and the ball must be replaced.

1.3c(4)/3
Meaning of Unrelated Acts

Unrelated acts in the context of Rule 1.3c(4) are acts of a player that are of a different type or associated with a different process.

Examples of unrelated acts where multiple penalties apply include:

  • Making a practice swing that touches sand in a bunker and bending an overhanging tree branch that interferes with the player's swing.
  • Moving an immovable obstruction that improves the area of the player's swing and pressing down grass behind the ball.

Examples of related acts where only one penalty applies include:

  • Making several practice swings that touch sand in a bunker.
  • Asking for two different pieces of advice, such as what club the player used and what the wind direction is, both related to the process of selecting what club to use for the next stroke.
1.3c(4)/4
Not Replacing the Ball May Be Considered a Separate and Unrelated Act

In the example given in 1.3c(4)/2, a single act of pressing down grass and moving the ball breached two Rules (Rule 8.1a and Rule 9.4b) and resulted in a single penalty being applied under Rule 8.1a (Actions That Improve Conditions Affecting the Stroke).

However, Rule 9.4b (Lifting or Deliberately Touching Ball or Causing It to Move) requires that the moved ball be replaced and, if it is not replaced before the stroke, the player will get an additional penalty of two strokes under Rule 9.4b. The failure to replace the ball is considered a separate and unrelated act.

1.3c(4)/C1
Clarification: Playing From a Wrong Place Is Related to Causing the Ball to Move:

If a player moves his or her ball in play in breach of Rule 9.4 and plays it from its new location rather than replacing it, the player gets only the general penalty under Rule 14.7 for playing from a wrong place. The act of moving the ball in breach of Rule 9.4 is related to playing from a wrong place in breach of Rule 14.7.

(Clarification added 12/2018)

1.3c/1
Player Is Not Disqualified from a Competition When That Round Does Not Count

In competitions where not all rounds count, a player is not disqualified from the competition for being disqualified from a single round.

Examples of when a player is not disqualified from the competition:

  • In a handicap competition where the two best of four rounds count, a player mistakenly returns his or her scorecard with a higher handicap that affects how many strokes are received in the first round.
    Since the higher handicap affected the number of handicap strokes received, the player is disqualified from the first round of the competition and now has three rounds in which to determine his or her two best net scores.
  • In a team competition with four-player teams, where the three best scores for each round are added up to make the team's score for each round, a player is disqualified from the second round for not correcting the play of a wrong ball. That player's score does not count for the team score in the second round but the player's score would count for any other round of the competition.
1.3c/2
Applying Disqualification Penalties, Concessions and Wrong Number of Strokes in a Stroke-Play Play-Off

During a play-off in a stroke-play competition the Rules are applied as follows:

  • If a player is disqualified (such as for making a stroke with a non-conforming club), the player is disqualified from the play-off only and the player is entitled to any prize that may have been won in the competition itself.
  • If two players are in the play-off, one player is allowed to concede the play-off to the other player.
  • If Player A mistakenly gives the wrong number of strokes to Player B and that mistake results in Player B lifting his or her ball (such as when Player B thinks he or she has lost the play-off to Player A), Player B is allowed to replace the ball without penalty and complete the hole. There is no penalty to Player A.

Greenen

Det område på hullet, spilleren spiller, som:

  • Er specielt forberedt til at putte på, eller
  • Komitéen har defineret som greenen (f.eks. når en midlertidig green bliver brugt).

Greenen på et hul indeholder hullet, spilleren forsøger at spille en bold ned i. Greenen er et af de fem definerede baneområder. Greens på alle andre huller (som spilleren ikke spiller på lige nu) er forkerte greens og en del af det generelle område.

Kanten af en green er defineret som, hvor man kan se, at det særligt forberedte område starter (f.eks. hvor græsset er klippet tydeligt for at vise kanten), undtagen når Komitéen har defineret kanten på en anden måde (f.eks. ved at bruge en linje eller en række prikker).

Hvis en dobbelt-green bliver brugt til to forskellige huller:

  • Hele det forberedte område, som indeholder begge huller, bliver betragtet som greenen, når et af hullerne spilles.

Men Komitéen kan definere en kant, som deler den dobbelte green i to forskellige greens, så når en spiller spiller et af hullerne, er den del af den dobbelte green, som hører til det andet hul, en forkert green.

Slag

Den fremadgående bevægelse af køllen med den hensigt at slå til bolden.

Men et slag er ikke udført, hvis spilleren:

  • Under nedsvinget beslutter sig for ikke at ramme bolden og undgår at gøre dette ved bevidst at stoppe køllehovedet, før det når bolden eller, hvis ikke i stand til at stoppe, så ved bevidst at ramme forbi bolden.
  • Tilfældigt rammer bolden under udførelse af et prøvesving eller under forberedelserne til at udføre et slag.

Når Reglerne bruger ”spille en bold” er betydningen den samme som at udføre et slag.

Spillerens score for et hul eller en runde udgøres af et antal "slag," eller ”udførte slag”, som betyder både alle slag og alle strafslag. (Se Regel 3.1c.)

 

Interpretation Stroke/1 - Determining If a Stroke Was Made

If a player starts the downswing with a club intending to strike the ball, his or her action counts as a stroke when:

  • The clubhead is deflected or stopped by an outside influence (such as the branch of a tree) whether or not the ball is struck.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, whether or not the ball is struck with the shaft.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, with the clubhead falling and striking the ball.

The player's action does not count as a stroke in each of following situations:

  • During the downswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player stops the downswing short of the ball, but the clubhead falls and strikes and moves the ball.
  • During the backswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player completes the downswing with the shaft but does not strike the ball.
  • A ball is lodged in a tree branch beyond the reach of a club. If the player moves the ball by striking a lower part of the branch instead of the ball, Rule 9.4 (Ball Lifted or Moved by Player) applies.
Løse naturgenstande

Enhver ikke-fastsiddende naturlig genstand, som f.eks.:

  • Sten, løst græs, blade, grene og kviste
  • Døde dyr og affald fra dyr
  • Orme, insekter og lignende dyr, som let kan fjernes, samt forhøjningerne og spindene, de laver (f.eks. ormeskud og myretuer)
  • Klumper af sammenpresset jord (omfattende løse jordklumper fra luftningshuller).

Sådanne naturlige genstande er ikke løse, hvis de er:

  • Fastsiddende eller vokser,
  • Solidt fæstnet i jorden (det vil sige, de ikke let kan løftes), eller
  • Klæber til bolden.

Særlige tilfælde:

  • Sand og løs jord er ikke løse naturgenstande.
  • Dug, rim og vand er ikke løse naturgenstande.
  • Sne og naturligt is, (bortset fra rim) er enten løse naturgenstande eller, hvis det er på jorden, midlertidigt vand efter spillerens valg.
  • Edderkoppespind er løse naturgenstande, selvom de sidder fast på andre genstande.

 

Interpretation Loose Impediment/1 - Status of Fruit

Fruit that is detached from its tree or bush is a loose impediment, even if the fruit is from a bush or tree not found on the course.

For example, fruit that has been partially eaten or cut into pieces, and the skin that has been peeled from a piece of fruit are loose impediments. But, when being carried by a player, it is his or her equipment.

Interpretation Loose Impediment/2 - When Loose Impediment Becomes Obstruction

Loose impediments may be transformed into obstructions through the processes of construction or manufacturing.

For example, a log (loose impediment) that has been split and had legs attached has been changed by construction into a bench (obstruction).

Interpretation Loose Impediment/3 - Status of Saliva

Saliva may be treated as either temporary water or a loose impediment, at the option of the player.

Interpretation Loose Impediment/4 - Loose Impediments Used to Surface a Road

Gravel is a loose impediment and a player may remove loose impediments under Rule 15.1a. This right is not affected by the fact that, when a road is covered with gravel, it becomes an artificially surfaced road, making it an immovable obstruction. The same principle applies to roads or paths constructed with stone, crushed shell, wood chips or the like.

In such a situation, the player may:

  • Play the ball as it lies on the obstruction and remove gravel (loose impediment) from the road (Rule 15.1a).
  • Take relief without penalty from the abnormal course condition (immovable obstruction) (Rule 16.1b).

The player may also remove some gravel from the road to determine the possibility of playing the ball as it lies before choosing to take free relief.

Interpretation Loose Impediment/5 - Living Insect Is Never Sticking to a Ball

Although dead insects may be considered to be sticking to a ball, living insects are never considered to be sticking to a ball, whether they are stationary or moving. Therefore, live insects on a ball are loose impediments.

Flytbar forhindring

En forhindring, som kan flyttes med en rimelig indsats uden at beskadige forhindringen eller banen.

Hvis en del af en ikke-flytbar forhindring eller en integreret genstand (som f.eks. en låge eller dør eller en del af et fastgjort kabel) overholder disse to betingelser, så behandles den del som en flytbar forhindring.

Men det gælder ikke, hvis den flytbare del af en ikke-flytbar forhindring eller en integreret genstand ikke var beregnet til at kunne flyttes (f.eks. en løs sten, som er en del af en mur).

Selv hvis en forhindring er flytbar, kan Komitéen erklære den for at være en ikke-flytbar forhindring.

 

Interpretation Movable Obstruction/1 - Abandoned Ball Is a Movable Obstruction

An abandoned ball is a movable obstruction.

Slagspil

En form for spil, hvor en spiller eller side konkurrerer mod alle andre spillere eller sider i turneringen.

I standardudgaven af slagspil (se Regel 3.3):

  • En spillers eller sides score for en runde er det samlede antal slag (omfattende udførte slag og alle strafslag), der er brugt på at spille bolden i hul på hvert hul, og
  • Vinderen er den spiller eller side, der fuldfører alle runder med det laveste samlede antal slag.

Andre former for slagspil med forskellige scoringsmetoder er Stableford, Maksimum Score og Par/Bogey (se Regel 21).

Alle former for slagspil kan spilles enten som individuelle turneringer (hver spiller konkurrerer for sig selv) eller i turneringer, der omfatter sider af partnere (Foursome eller Four-Ball).

Hul

Det afsluttende punkt på greenen for det hul, der spilles:

Hullet skal være 108 mm i diameter og mindst 101,6 mm dybt.

Hvis en foring er anvendt, må dens ydre diameter ikke overstige 108 mm. Foringen skal være sænket mindst 25,4 mm under greenens overflade, medmindre særlige jordbundsforhold forudsætter, at den er tættere på overfladen.

Ordet ”hul” (når det ikke bruges som en definition i kursiv) bliver brugt i Reglerne, og betyder så den del af banen, som hører sammen med et bestemt teested, green og hul. Spil af et hul begynder fra teestedet, og slutter, når bolden er i hulgreenen (eller når Reglerne i øvrigt anfører, at hullet er færdigspillet).

Men Komitéen kan definere en kant, som deler den dobbelte green i to forskellige greens, så når en spiller spiller et af hullerne, er den del af den dobbelte green, som hører til det andet hul, en forkert green.

Runde

18 eller færre huller spillet i den rækkefølge, Komitéen har bestemt.

Slag

Den fremadgående bevægelse af køllen med den hensigt at slå til bolden.

Men et slag er ikke udført, hvis spilleren:

  • Under nedsvinget beslutter sig for ikke at ramme bolden og undgår at gøre dette ved bevidst at stoppe køllehovedet, før det når bolden eller, hvis ikke i stand til at stoppe, så ved bevidst at ramme forbi bolden.

Spillerens score for et hul eller en runde udgøres af et antal "slag," eller ”udførte slag”, som betyder både alle slag og alle strafslag. (Se Regel 3.1c.)

 

Interpretation Stroke/1 - Determining If a Stroke Was Made

If a player starts the downswing with a club intending to strike the ball, his or her action counts as a stroke when:

  • The clubhead is deflected or stopped by an outside influence (such as the branch of a tree) whether or not the ball is struck.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, whether or not the ball is struck with the shaft.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, with the clubhead falling and striking the ball.

The player's action does not count as a stroke in each of following situations:

  • During the downswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player stops the downswing short of the ball, but the clubhead falls and strikes and moves the ball.
  • During the backswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player completes the downswing with the shaft but does not strike the ball.
  • A ball is lodged in a tree branch beyond the reach of a club. If the player moves the ball by striking a lower part of the branch instead of the ball, Rule 9.4 (Ball Lifted or Moved by Player) applies.
Runde

18 eller færre huller spillet i den rækkefølge, Komitéen har bestemt.

Runde

18 eller færre huller spillet i den rækkefølge, Komitéen har bestemt.

Slagspil

En form for spil, hvor en spiller eller side konkurrerer mod alle andre spillere eller sider i turneringen.

I standardudgaven af slagspil (se Regel 3.3):

  • En spillers eller sides score for en runde er det samlede antal slag (omfattende udførte slag og alle strafslag), der er brugt på at spille bolden i hul på hvert hul, og
  • Vinderen er den spiller eller side, der fuldfører alle runder med det laveste samlede antal slag.

Andre former for slagspil med forskellige scoringsmetoder er Stableford, Maksimum Score og Par/Bogey (se Regel 21).

Alle former for slagspil kan spilles enten som individuelle turneringer (hver spiller konkurrerer for sig selv) eller i turneringer, der omfatter sider af partnere (Foursome eller Four-Ball).

Hul

Det afsluttende punkt på greenen for det hul, der spilles:

Hullet skal være 108 mm i diameter og mindst 101,6 mm dybt.

Hvis en foring er anvendt, må dens ydre diameter ikke overstige 108 mm. Foringen skal være sænket mindst 25,4 mm under greenens overflade, medmindre særlige jordbundsforhold forudsætter, at den er tættere på overfladen.

Ordet ”hul” (når det ikke bruges som en definition i kursiv) bliver brugt i Reglerne, og betyder så den del af banen, som hører sammen med et bestemt teested, green og hul. Spil af et hul begynder fra teestedet, og slutter, når bolden er i hulgreenen (eller når Reglerne i øvrigt anfører, at hullet er færdigspillet).

I hul

Når en bold ligger stille i hullet efter et slag og hele bolden er under greenens overflade.

Når Reglerne benytter ”spillet bolden i huleller "spille bolden i hul" betyder det, at spillerens bold er i hul.

Ved den specielle situation, hvor en bold hviler mod flagstangen i hullet, se Regel 13.2c (bolden bliver anset for at være i hul, hvis nogen del af bolden er under greenens overflade).

 

Interpretation Holed/1 - All of the Ball Must Be Below the Surface to Be Holed When Embedded in Side of Hole

When a ball is embedded in the side of the hole, and all of the ball is not below the surface of the putting green, the ball is not holed. This is the case even if the ball touches the flagstick.

Interpretation Holed/2 - Ball Is Considered Holed Even Though It Is Not "At Rest"

The words "at rest" in the definition of holed are used to make it clear that if a ball falls into the hole and bounces out, it is not holed.

However, if a player removes a ball from the hole that is still moving (such as circling or bouncing in the bottom of the hole), it is considered holed despite the ball not having come to rest in the hole.

I hul

Når en bold ligger stille i hullet efter et slag og hele bolden er under greenens overflade.

Når Reglerne benytter ”spillet bolden i huleller "spille bolden i hul" betyder det, at spillerens bold er i hul.

Ved den specielle situation, hvor en bold hviler mod flagstangen i hullet, se Regel 13.2c (bolden bliver anset for at være i hul, hvis nogen del af bolden er under greenens overflade).

Hullet skal være 108 mm i diameter og mindst 101,6 mm dybt.

Hvis en foring er anvendt, må dens ydre diameter ikke overstige 108 mm. Foringen skal være sænket mindst 25,4 mm under greenens overflade, medmindre særlige jordbundsforhold forudsætter, at den er tættere på overfladen.

Ordet ”hul” (når det ikke bruges som en definition i kursiv) bliver brugt i Reglerne, og betyder så den del af banen, som hører sammen med et bestemt teested, green og hul. Spil af et hul begynder fra teestedet, og slutter, når bolden er i hulgreenen (eller når Reglerne i øvrigt anfører, at hullet er færdigspillet).

Greenen

Det område på hullet, spilleren spiller, som:

  • Er specielt forberedt til at putte på, eller
  • Komitéen har defineret som greenen (f.eks. når en midlertidig green bliver brugt).

Greenen på et hul indeholder hullet, spilleren forsøger at spille en bold ned i. Greenen er et af de fem definerede baneområder. Greens på alle andre huller (som spilleren ikke spiller på lige nu) er forkerte greens og en del af det generelle område.

Kanten af en green er defineret som, hvor man kan se, at det særligt forberedte område starter (f.eks. hvor græsset er klippet tydeligt for at vise kanten), undtagen når Komitéen har defineret kanten på en anden måde (f.eks. ved at bruge en linje eller en række prikker).

Hvis en dobbelt-green bliver brugt til to forskellige huller:

  • Hele det forberedte område, som indeholder begge huller, bliver betragtet som greenen, når et af hullerne spilles.

Men Komitéen kan definere en kant, som deler den dobbelte green i to forskellige greens, så når en spiller spiller et af hullerne, er den del af den dobbelte green, som hører til det andet hul, en forkert green.

I hul

Når en bold ligger stille i hullet efter et slag og hele bolden er under greenens overflade.

Når Reglerne benytter ”spillet bolden i huleller "spille bolden i hul" betyder det, at spillerens bold er i hul.

Ved den specielle situation, hvor en bold hviler mod flagstangen i hullet, se Regel 13.2c (bolden bliver anset for at være i hul, hvis nogen del af bolden er under greenens overflade).

 

Interpretation Holed/1 - All of the Ball Must Be Below the Surface to Be Holed When Embedded in Side of Hole

When a ball is embedded in the side of the hole, and all of the ball is not below the surface of the putting green, the ball is not holed. This is the case even if the ball touches the flagstick.

Interpretation Holed/2 - Ball Is Considered Holed Even Though It Is Not "At Rest"

The words "at rest" in the definition of holed are used to make it clear that if a ball falls into the hole and bounces out, it is not holed.

However, if a player removes a ball from the hole that is still moving (such as circling or bouncing in the bottom of the hole), it is considered holed despite the ball not having come to rest in the hole.

I hul

Når en bold ligger stille i hullet efter et slag og hele bolden er under greenens overflade.

Når Reglerne benytter ”spillet bolden i huleller "spille bolden i hul" betyder det, at spillerens bold er i hul.

Ved den specielle situation, hvor en bold hviler mod flagstangen i hullet, se Regel 13.2c (bolden bliver anset for at være i hul, hvis nogen del af bolden er under greenens overflade).

However, if a player removes a ball from the hole that is still moving (such as circling or bouncing in the bottom of the hole), it is considered holed despite the ball not having come to rest in the hole.

Slagspil

En form for spil, hvor en spiller eller side konkurrerer mod alle andre spillere eller sider i turneringen.

I standardudgaven af slagspil (se Regel 3.3):

  • En spillers eller sides score for en runde er det samlede antal slag (omfattende udførte slag og alle strafslag), der er brugt på at spille bolden i hul på hvert hul, og
  • Vinderen er den spiller eller side, der fuldfører alle runder med det laveste samlede antal slag.

Andre former for slagspil med forskellige scoringsmetoder er Stableford, Maksimum Score og Par/Bogey (se Regel 21).

Alle former for slagspil kan spilles enten som individuelle turneringer (hver spiller konkurrerer for sig selv) eller i turneringer, der omfatter sider af partnere (Foursome eller Four-Ball).

Markør

Den person i slagspil, som er ansvarlig for at notere en spillers score på spillerens scorekort og for at underskrive scorekortet. Markøren kan være en anden spiller, men ikke en partner.

Komitéen kan identificere spillerens markør eller fortælle spillerne, hvordan de selv kan vælge en markør.

Lempelsesområde

Det område, en spiller skal droppe en bold i, når spilleren tager lempelse efter en Regel. Hver Regel med lempelse kræver, at spilleren bruger et bestemt lempelsesområde, hvis størrelse og placering er baseret på disse tre faktorer:

  • Referencepunkt: Det punkt, hvorfra man måler størrelsen af lempelsesområdet.
  • Størrelse på lempelsesområde målt fra referencepunktet: Lempelsesområdet er en eller to køllelængder fra referencepunktet, men med visse begrænsninger:
  • Begrænsninger for lempelsesområdets placering: Placeringen af lempelsesområdet kan være begrænset på en eller flere måder, f.eks.:
    • Det er kun i bestemte, definerede baneområder, f.eks. kun i det generelle område eller ikke i en bunker eller et strafområde,
    • Det er ikke nærmere hullet end referencepunktet, eller det skal være uden for et strafområde eller en bunker, hvorfra lempelse bliver taget, eller
    • Det er, hvor der ikke er gene (som defineret i den aktuelle Regel) fra den tilstand eller situation, som lempelsen bliver taget fra.

Når der bruges køllelængder til at bestemme størrelsen af et lempelsesområde, må spilleren måle direkte over en grøft, et hul eller en lignende ting, og direkte over eller gennem en genstand (f.eks. et træ, hegn, mur, rør, dræn eller sprinklerhoved), men det er ikke tilladt at måle gennem jord, som naturligt skråner opad eller nedad.

Se Procedurer for Komitéen, Afsnit 2I (Komitéen kan vælge at tillade eller kræve, at spilleren bruger en droppezone som lempelsesområde, når der tages bestemte lempelser).

Areal under reparation

Enhver del af banen, som Komitéen erklærer som areal under reparation (enten ved at markere det eller på anden måde). Ethvert defineret areal under reparation omfatter både:

  • Hele overfladen inden for grænsen af det erklærede område, og
  • Alt græs, buske, træer eller andet der gror, eller er fastsiddende i det erklærede område, omfattende enhver del af disse, som rager uden for grænsen af det erklærede område over jorden, men ikke når noget sådant (f.eks. en trærod) sidder fast i, eller er under jorden uden for grænsen af det erklærede område.

Areal under reparation omfatter også følgende ting, selvom Komitéen ikke har defineret dem som sådan:

  • ethvert hul lavet af Komitéen eller banepersonalet:
    • i forbindelse med opsætning af banen (f.eks. et hul, hvor en pæl er fjernet, eller hullet på en dobbeltgreen, som bruges ved spil af et andet hul), eller
    • ved vedligeholdelse af banen (f.eks. et hul lavet ved at fjerne græs eller en træstub eller lægge dræn, men omfatter ikke luftningshuller)
  • afklippet græs, blade og alt andet materiale, samlet sammen med senere bortskaffelse for øje. Men:
    • andre naturgenstande, som er samlet sammen med bortskaffelse for øje, er også løse naturgenstande, og
    • andet materiale, som er efterladt på banen, uden at det påtænkes fjernet, er ikke areal under reparation, medmindre Komitéen har erklæret det som sådant.
  • Ethvert levested for dyr (f.eks. en fuglerede), som er så nær spillerens bold, at spillerens slag eller stance ville ødelægge det, undtagen hvis levestedet er lavet af dyr, som er defineret som løse naturgenstande (som f.eks. orme og insekter).

Grænsen for areal under reparation bør defineres af pæle, linjer eller en fysisk forekomst:

  • Pæle: Når grænsen defineres af pæle, defineres grænsen til areal under reparation af linjen mellem den udvendige side af pælene i jordhøjde, og pælene står i areal under reparation.
  • Linjer: Når grænsen er defineret af en afstribning på jorden, er afstribningen i areal under reparation, og grænsen til areal under reparation går ved ydersiden af afstribningen.
  • Fysisk forekomst: Når grænsen er defineret af en fysisk forekomst (f.eks. et blomsterbed eller et nysået græsareal), bør Komitéen meddele, hvordan grænsen af areal under reparation er defineret.

Når grænsen for areal under reparation er defineret af linjer eller fysiske forekomster, kan pæle bruges til at vise, hvor areal under reparation forefindes, men de har ikke anden betydning.

 

Interpretation Ground Under Repair/1 - Damage Caused by Committee or Maintenance Staff Is Not Always Ground Under Repair

A hole made by maintenance staff is ground under repair even when not marked as ground under repair. However, not all damage caused by maintenance staff is ground under repair by default.

Examples of damage that is not ground under repair by default include:

  • A rut made by a tractor (but the Committee is justified in declaring a deep rut to be ground under repair).
  • An old hole plug that is sunk below the putting green surface, but see Rule 13.1c (Improvements Allowed on Putting Green).

Interpretation Ground Under Repair/2 - Ball in Tree Rooted in Ground Under Repair Is in Ground Under Repair

If a tree is rooted in ground under repair and a player's ball is in a branch of that tree, the ball is in ground under repair even if the branch extends outside the defined area.

If the player decides to take free relief under Rule 16.1 and the spot on the ground directly under where the ball lies in the tree is outside the ground under repair, the reference point for determining the relief area and taking relief is that spot on the ground.

Interpretation Ground Under Repair/3 - Fallen Tree or Tree Stump Is Not Always Ground Under Repair

A fallen tree or tree stump that the Committee intends to remove, but is not in the process of being removed, is not automatically ground under repair. However, if the tree and the tree stump are in the process of being unearthed or cut up for later removal, they are "material piled for later removal" and therefore ground under repair.

For example, a tree that has fallen in the general area and is still attached to the stump is not ground under repair. However, a player could request relief from the Committee and the Committee would be justified in declaring the area covered by the fallen tree to be ground under repair.

Køllelængde

Længden på den længste af de 14 (eller færre) køller, som spilleren bruger under runden (som tilladt efter Regel 4.1b(1)), og som ikke er putteren.

Hvis f.eks. den længste kølle (som ikke er putteren), en spiller har under runden, er en 109 cm lang driver, er en køllelængde 109 cm for den spiller under den runde.

Køllelængder bruges til at definere spillerens teested på hvert hul og til at bestemme størrelsen på spillerens lempelsesområde, når der tages lempelse efter en Regel.

 

Interpretation Club-Length/1 - Meaning of "Club-Length" When Measuring

For the purposes of measuring when determining a relief area, the length of the entire club, starting at the toe of the club and ending at the butt end of the grip is used. However, if the club has a headcover on it or has an attachment to the end of the grip, neither is allowed to be used as part of the club when using it to measure.

Interpretation Club-Length/2 - How to Measure When Longest Club Breaks

If the longest club a player has during a round breaks, that broken club continues to be used for determining the size of his or her relief areas. However, if the longest club breaks and the player is allowed to replace it with another club (Exception to Rule 4.1b(3)) and he or she does so, the broken club is no longer considered his or her longest club.

If the player starts a round with fewer than 14 clubs and decides to add another club that is longer than the clubs he or she started with, the added club is used for measuring so long as it is not a putter.

Køllelængde

For the purposes of measuring when determining a relief area, the length of the entire club, starting at the toe of the club and ending at the butt end of the grip is used. However, if the club has a headcover on it or has an attachment to the end of the grip, neither is allowed to be used as part of the club when using it to measure.

However, if the longest club breaks and the player is allowed to replace it with another club (Exception to Rule 4.1b(3)) and he or she does so, the broken club is no longer considered his or her longest club.

If the player starts a round with fewer than 14 clubs and decides to add another club that is longer than the clubs he or she started with, the added club is used for measuring so long as it is not a putter.

Droppe

At holde bolden og slippe den, så den falder gennem luften med den hensigt at bringe bolden i spil.

Hvis spilleren slipper bolden uden hensigt om at bringe den i spil, er bolden ikke droppet, og er ikke i spil (se Regel 14.4).

Hver lempelsesregel foreskriver et bestemt lempelsesområde, hvor bolden skal droppes og ligge stille.

Når der tages lempelse, skal spilleren slippe bolden fra et sted i knæhøjde, så bolden:

  • falder lige ned, uden at spilleren kaster, spinner eller ruller den, eller bruger enhver anden bevægelse, som kunne have indflydelse på, hvor bolden vil ligge stille, og
  • ikke rører nogen del af spillerens krop eller udstyr, før den rammer jorden (se Regel 14.3b).
Køllelængde

Længden på den længste af de 14 (eller færre) køller, som spilleren bruger under runden (som tilladt efter Regel 4.1b(1)), og som ikke er putteren.

Hvis f.eks. den længste kølle (som ikke er putteren), en spiller har under runden, er en 109 cm lang driver, er en køllelængde 109 cm for den spiller under den runde.

Nærmeste punkt for fuld lempelse

Referencepunktet for at tage lempelse uden straf fra et unormalt baneforhold (Regel 16.1), situation med farligt dyr (Regel 16.2), forkert green (Regel 13.1f) eller område med spilleforbud (Reglerne 16.1f og 17.1e), eller når der tages lempelse efter visse lokalregler.

Det er det skønnede punkt, hvor bolden ville ligge, som er:

  • Nærmest ved boldens oprindelige sted, men ikke nærmere hullet end det sted,
  • I det krævede baneområde, og
  • Hvor forholdet ikke medfører gene for det slag, som spilleren ville have udført fra boldens oprindelige sted, hvis forholdet ikke eksisterede.

At skønne dette referencepunkt kræver, at spilleren identificerer sit valg af kølle, stance, sving og spillelinje, spilleren ville have brugt for det slag

Spilleren behøver ikke simulere slaget ved at indtage den aktuelle stance og svinge med den valgte kølle (men det anbefales, at spilleren normalt gør dette som hjælp til at foretage et præcist skøn).

Det nærmeste punkt for fuld lempelse relaterer sig udelukkende til det faktiske forhold, der tages lempelse for, og kan være et sted, hvor der er gene fra noget andet:

  • Hvis spilleren tager lempelse, og så har gene fra et andet forhold, hvorfra der gives lempelse, kan spilleren tage lempelse igen ved at bestemme et nyt nærmeste punkt for fuld lempelse fra det nye forhold.
  • Lempelse skal tages separat for hvert forhold, undtagen hvis man klart kan konkludere, at man derved vil fortsætte med at få gene fra det ene eller det andet forhold (i hvilket tilfælde spilleren kan tage lempelse for begge forhold samtidigt, baseret på at bestemme det nærmeste punkt for fuld lempelse fra begge).

 

Interpretation Nearest Point of Complete Relief/1 - Diagrams Illustrating Nearest Point of Complete Relief

In the diagrams, the term "nearest point of complete relief" in Rule 16.1 (Abnormal Course Conditions) for relief from interference by ground under repair is illustrated in the case of both a right-handed and a left-handed player.

The nearest point of complete relief must be strictly interpreted. A player is not allowed to choose on which side of the ground under repair the ball will be dropped, unless there are two equidistant nearest points of complete relief. Even if one side of the ground under repair is fairway and the other is bushes, if the nearest point of complete relief is in the bushes, then that is the player's nearest point of complete relief.

Interpretation Nearest Point of Complete Relief/2 – Player Does Not Follow Recommended Procedure in Determining Nearest Point of Complete Relief

Although there is a recommended procedure for determining the nearest point of complete relief, the Rules do not require a player to determine this point when taking relief under a relevant Rule (such as when taking relief from an abnormal course condition under Rule 16.1b (Relief for Ball in General Area)). If a player does not determine a nearest point of complete relief accurately or identifies an incorrect nearest point of complete relief, the player only gets a penalty if this results in him or her dropping a ball into a relief area that does not satisfy the requirements of the Rule and the ball is then played.

Interpretation Nearest Point of Complete Relief/3 – Whether Player Has Taken Relief Incorrectly If Condition Still Interferes for Stroke with Club Not Used to Determine Nearest Point of Complete Relief

When a player is taking relief from an abnormal course condition, he or she is taking relief only for interference that he or she had with the club, stance, swing and line of play that would have been used to play the ball from that spot. After the player has taken relief and there is no longer interference for the stroke the player would have made, any further interference is a new situation.

For example, the player's ball lies in heavy rough in the general area approximately 230 yards from the green. The player selects a wedge to make the next stroke and finds that his or her stance touches a line defining an area of ground under repair. The player determines the nearest point of complete relief and drops a ball in the prescribed relief area according to Rule 14.3b(3) (Ball Must Be Dropped in Relief Area) and Rule 16.1 (Relief from Abnormal Course Conditions).

The ball rolls into a good lie within the relief area from where the player believes that the next stroke could be played with a 3-wood. If the player used a wedge for the next stroke there would be no interference from the ground under repair. However, using the 3-wood, the player again touches the line defining the ground under repair with his or her foot. This is a new situation and the player may play the ball as it lies or take relief for the new situation.

Interpretation Nearest Point of Complete Relief/4 - Player Determines Nearest Point of Complete Relief but Is Physically Unable to Make Intended Stroke

The purpose of determining the nearest point of complete relief is to find a reference point in a location that is as near as possible to where the interfering condition no longer interferes. In determining the nearest point of complete relief, the player is not guaranteed a good or playable lie.

For example, if a player is unable to make a stroke from what appears to be the required relief area as measured from the nearest point of complete relief because either the direction of play is blocked by a tree, or the player is unable to take the backswing for the intended stroke due to a bush, this does not change the fact that the identified point is the nearest point of complete relief.

After the ball is in play, the player must then decide what type of stroke he or she will make. This stroke, which includes the choice of club, may be different than the one that would have been made from the ball's original spot had the condition not been there.

If it is not physically possible to drop the ball in any part of the identified relief area, the player is not allowed relief from the condition.

Interpretation Nearest Point of Complete Relief/5 - Player Physically Unable to Determine Nearest Point of Complete Relief

If a player is physically unable to determine his or her nearest point of complete relief, it must be estimated, and the relief area is then based on the estimated point.

For example, in taking relief under Rule 16.1, a player is physically unable to determine the nearest point of complete relief because that point is within the trunk of a tree or a boundary fence prevents the player from adopting the required stance.

The player must estimate the nearest point of complete relief and drop a ball in the identified relief area.

If it is not physically possible to drop the ball in the identified relief area, the player is not allowed relief under Rule 16.1.

Runde

18 eller færre huller spillet i den rækkefølge, Komitéen har bestemt.

Komité

Den person eller gruppe, som er ansvarlig for turneringen eller banen.

Se Procedurer for Komitéen, Afsnit 1 (forklarer Komitéens rolle).

Forkert sted

Ethvert andet sted på banen end, hvor spilleren skal eller må spille sin bold efter Reglerne.

Eksempler på at spille fra et forkert sted er:

  • Spille en bold efter at have genplaceret den på et forkert sted eller uden at have genplaceret den, hvis dette var foreskrevet i Reglerne.
  • Spille en droppet bold fra et sted uden for det foreskrevne lempelsesområde.
  • Tage lempelse efter en forkert Regel, således at bolden droppes i og spilles fra et sted, som ikke er tilladt efter Reglerne.
  • Spille en bold fra et område med spilleforbud eller, når et område med spilleforbud er i området for spillerens tilsigtede stance eller sving.

At spille en bold uden for teestedet ved start af et hul eller i et forsøg på at rette denne fejl, er ikke at spille fra et forkert sted (se Regel 6.1b).

Løse naturgenstande

Enhver ikke-fastsiddende naturlig genstand, som f.eks.:

  • Sten, løst græs, blade, grene og kviste
  • Døde dyr og affald fra dyr
  • Orme, insekter og lignende dyr, som let kan fjernes, samt forhøjningerne og spindene, de laver (f.eks. ormeskud og myretuer)
  • Klumper af sammenpresset jord (omfattende løse jordklumper fra luftningshuller).

Sådanne naturlige genstande er ikke løse, hvis de er:

  • Fastsiddende eller vokser,
  • Solidt fæstnet i jorden (det vil sige, de ikke let kan løftes), eller
  • Klæber til bolden.

Særlige tilfælde:

  • Sand og løs jord er ikke løse naturgenstande.
  • Dug, rim og vand er ikke løse naturgenstande.
  • Sne og naturligt is, (bortset fra rim) er enten løse naturgenstande eller, hvis det er på jorden, midlertidigt vand efter spillerens valg.
  • Edderkoppespind er løse naturgenstande, selvom de sidder fast på andre genstande.

 

Interpretation Loose Impediment/1 - Status of Fruit

Fruit that is detached from its tree or bush is a loose impediment, even if the fruit is from a bush or tree not found on the course.

For example, fruit that has been partially eaten or cut into pieces, and the skin that has been peeled from a piece of fruit are loose impediments. But, when being carried by a player, it is his or her equipment.

Interpretation Loose Impediment/2 - When Loose Impediment Becomes Obstruction

Loose impediments may be transformed into obstructions through the processes of construction or manufacturing.

For example, a log (loose impediment) that has been split and had legs attached has been changed by construction into a bench (obstruction).

Interpretation Loose Impediment/3 - Status of Saliva

Saliva may be treated as either temporary water or a loose impediment, at the option of the player.

Interpretation Loose Impediment/4 - Loose Impediments Used to Surface a Road

Gravel is a loose impediment and a player may remove loose impediments under Rule 15.1a. This right is not affected by the fact that, when a road is covered with gravel, it becomes an artificially surfaced road, making it an immovable obstruction. The same principle applies to roads or paths constructed with stone, crushed shell, wood chips or the like.

In such a situation, the player may:

  • Play the ball as it lies on the obstruction and remove gravel (loose impediment) from the road (Rule 15.1a).
  • Take relief without penalty from the abnormal course condition (immovable obstruction) (Rule 16.1b).

The player may also remove some gravel from the road to determine the possibility of playing the ball as it lies before choosing to take free relief.

Interpretation Loose Impediment/5 - Living Insect Is Never Sticking to a Ball

Although dead insects may be considered to be sticking to a ball, living insects are never considered to be sticking to a ball, whether they are stationary or moving. Therefore, live insects on a ball are loose impediments.

Flyttet

Når en bold, der ligger stille, forlader sit oprindelige sted og kommer til at ligge et andet sted, og det kan ses med det blotte øje (uanset om nogen rent faktisk ser den gøre det).

Dette gælder uanset om bolden har bevæget sig opad, nedad eller horisontalt i en hvilken som helst retning fra sit oprindelige sted.

Hvis en bold, der ligger stille, kun vipper (nogle gange kaldet oscillerer) og forbliver på eller returnerer til dens oprindelige sted, så har bolden ikke flyttet sig.

 

Interpretation Moved/1 - When Ball Resting on Object Has Moved

For the purpose of deciding whether a ball must be replaced or whether a player gets a penalty, a ball is treated as having moved only if it has moved in relation to a specific part of the larger condition or object it is resting on, unless the entire object the ball is resting on has moved in relation to the ground.

An example of when a ball has not moved includes when:

  • A ball is resting in the fork of a tree branch and the tree branch moves, but the ball's spot in the branch does not change.

Examples of when a ball has moved include when:

  • A ball is resting in a stationary plastic cup and the cup itself moves in relation to the ground because it is being blown by the wind.
  • A ball is resting in or on a stationary motorized cart that starts to move.

Interpretation Moved/2 - Television Evidence Shows Ball at Rest Changed Position but by Amount Not Reasonably Discernible to Naked Eye

When determining whether or not a ball at rest has moved, a player must make that judgment based on all the information reasonably available to him or her at the time, so that he or she can determine whether the ball must be replaced under the Rules. When the player's ball has left its original position and come to rest in another place by an amount that was not reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time, a player's determination that the ball has not moved is conclusive, even if that determination is later shown to be incorrect through the use of sophisticated technology.

On the other hand, if the Committee determines, based on all of the evidence it has available, that the ball changed its position by an amount that was reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time, the ball will be determined to have moved even though no-one actually saw it move.

Genplacere

At placere en bold ved at lægge den ned og slippe den med den hensigt, at den skal være i spil.

Hvis spilleren placerer en bold uden hensigt til, at den skal være i spil, er bolden ikke genplaceret og er ikke i spil (Se Regel 14.4).

Hver gang en Regel foreskriver, at en bold skal genplaceres, så foreskriver Reglen altid et bestemt sted, hvor bolden skal genplaceres.

 

Interpretation Replace/1 - Ball May Not Be Replaced with a Club

For a ball to be replaced in a right way, it must be set down and let go. This means the player must use his or her hand to put the ball back in play on the spot it was lifted or moved from.

For example, if a player lifts his or her ball from the putting green and sets it aside, the player must not replace the ball by rolling it to the required spot with a club. If he or she does so, the ball is not replaced in the right way and the player gets one penalty stroke under Rule 14.2b(2) (How Ball Must Be Replaced) if the mistake is not corrected before the stroke is made.

Forbedre

At forandre et eller flere af de forhold, der påvirker slaget, eller andre fysiske forhold, der påvirker spillet, så spilleren får en potentiel fordel ved udførelsen af et slag.

Forhold, der påvirker slaget

Lejet af spillerens bold, der ligger stille, området for spillerens tilsigtede stance, området for spillerens tilsigtede sving, spillelinjen og lempelsesområdet, hvor spilleren vil droppe eller placere en bold.

  •  “Området for den tilsigtede stance” omfatter både, hvor spilleren vil placere sine fødder og hele det område, som med rimelighed har indflydelse på, hvordan og hvor spillerens krop er placeret i forberedelsen til at udføre det tilsigtede slag.
  • “Området for det tilsigtede sving” omfatter hele det område, som med rimelighed har indflydelse på tilbagesvinget, nedsvinget eller gennemførelsen af svinget for det tilsigtede slag.
  • Hvert af udtrykkene ”leje”, ”spillelinje” og ”lempelsesområde” har sin egen definition.
Generel straf

Tab af hul i hulspil eller to strafslag i slagspil.

Slag

Den fremadgående bevægelse af køllen med den hensigt at slå til bolden.

Men et slag er ikke udført, hvis spilleren:

  • Under nedsvinget beslutter sig for ikke at ramme bolden og undgår at gøre dette ved bevidst at stoppe køllehovedet, før det når bolden eller, hvis ikke i stand til at stoppe, så ved bevidst at ramme forbi bolden.
  • Tilfældigt rammer bolden under udførelse af et prøvesving eller under forberedelserne til at udføre et slag.

Når Reglerne bruger ”spille en bold” er betydningen den samme som at udføre et slag.

Spillerens score for et hul eller en runde udgøres af et antal "slag," eller ”udførte slag”, som betyder både alle slag og alle strafslag. (Se Regel 3.1c.)

 

Interpretation Stroke/1 - Determining If a Stroke Was Made

If a player starts the downswing with a club intending to strike the ball, his or her action counts as a stroke when:

  • The clubhead is deflected or stopped by an outside influence (such as the branch of a tree) whether or not the ball is struck.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, whether or not the ball is struck with the shaft.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, with the clubhead falling and striking the ball.

The player's action does not count as a stroke in each of following situations:

  • During the downswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player stops the downswing short of the ball, but the clubhead falls and strikes and moves the ball.
  • During the backswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player completes the downswing with the shaft but does not strike the ball.
  • A ball is lodged in a tree branch beyond the reach of a club. If the player moves the ball by striking a lower part of the branch instead of the ball, Rule 9.4 (Ball Lifted or Moved by Player) applies.
Slagspil

En form for spil, hvor en spiller eller side konkurrerer mod alle andre spillere eller sider i turneringen.

I standardudgaven af slagspil (se Regel 3.3):

  • En spillers eller sides score for en runde er det samlede antal slag (omfattende udførte slag og alle strafslag), der er brugt på at spille bolden i hul på hvert hul, og
  • Vinderen er den spiller eller side, der fuldfører alle runder med det laveste samlede antal slag.

Andre former for slagspil med forskellige scoringsmetoder er Stableford, Maksimum Score og Par/Bogey (se Regel 21).

Alle former for slagspil kan spilles enten som individuelle turneringer (hver spiller konkurrerer for sig selv) eller i turneringer, der omfatter sider af partnere (Foursome eller Four-Ball).

Forbedre

At forandre et eller flere af de forhold, der påvirker slaget, eller andre fysiske forhold, der påvirker spillet, så spilleren får en potentiel fordel ved udførelsen af et slag.

Slag

Den fremadgående bevægelse af køllen med den hensigt at slå til bolden.

Men et slag er ikke udført, hvis spilleren:

  • Under nedsvinget beslutter sig for ikke at ramme bolden og undgår at gøre dette ved bevidst at stoppe køllehovedet, før det når bolden eller, hvis ikke i stand til at stoppe, så ved bevidst at ramme forbi bolden.
  • Tilfældigt rammer bolden under udførelse af et prøvesving eller under forberedelserne til at udføre et slag.

Når Reglerne bruger ”spille en bold” er betydningen den samme som at udføre et slag.

Spillerens score for et hul eller en runde udgøres af et antal "slag," eller ”udførte slag”, som betyder både alle slag og alle strafslag. (Se Regel 3.1c.)

 

Interpretation Stroke/1 - Determining If a Stroke Was Made

If a player starts the downswing with a club intending to strike the ball, his or her action counts as a stroke when:

  • The clubhead is deflected or stopped by an outside influence (such as the branch of a tree) whether or not the ball is struck.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, whether or not the ball is struck with the shaft.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, with the clubhead falling and striking the ball.

The player's action does not count as a stroke in each of following situations:

  • During the downswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player stops the downswing short of the ball, but the clubhead falls and strikes and moves the ball.
  • During the backswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player completes the downswing with the shaft but does not strike the ball.
  • A ball is lodged in a tree branch beyond the reach of a club. If the player moves the ball by striking a lower part of the branch instead of the ball, Rule 9.4 (Ball Lifted or Moved by Player) applies.

I spil

Status for en spillers bold, når den ligger på banen og bliver brugt ved spil af et hul:

  • En bold er først i spil på et hul:
    • Når spilleren udfører et slag til den inden for teestedet, eller
    • I hulspil, når spilleren udfører et slag til den uden for teestedet, og modstanderen ikke annullerer slaget efter Regel 6.1b
  • Bolden forbliver i spil, indtil den er i hul, dog er den ikke længere i spil:
    • Når den er løftet fra banen
    • Når den er mistet (selvom den ligger stille på banen), eller kommer til at ligge stille out of bounds
    • Når den er blevet erstattet af en anden bold, selvom det ikke var tilladt efter en Regel.

En bold, som ikke er i spil, er en forkert bold

Spilleren må ikke have mere end én bold i spil på ethvert tidspunkt. (Se Regel 6.3d for de få tilfælde, hvor en spiller kan spille med mere end én bold på samme tid på et hul.)

Når Reglerne henviser til en bold, der ligger stille eller er i bevægelse, betyder dette, at bolden er i spil.

Når et markeringsmærke er placeret for at markere en bold i spil:

  • Hvis bolden ikke er blevet løftet, er den stadig i spil
  • Hvis bolden er blevet løftet og genplaceret, er den i spil, selvom markeringsmærket ikke er fjernet.
Slagspil

En form for spil, hvor en spiller eller side konkurrerer mod alle andre spillere eller sider i turneringen.

I standardudgaven af slagspil (se Regel 3.3):

  • En spillers eller sides score for en runde er det samlede antal slag (omfattende udførte slag og alle strafslag), der er brugt på at spille bolden i hul på hvert hul, og
  • Vinderen er den spiller eller side, der fuldfører alle runder med det laveste samlede antal slag.

Andre former for slagspil med forskellige scoringsmetoder er Stableford, Maksimum Score og Par/Bogey (se Regel 21).

Alle former for slagspil kan spilles enten som individuelle turneringer (hver spiller konkurrerer for sig selv) eller i turneringer, der omfatter sider af partnere (Foursome eller Four-Ball).

Forbedre

At forandre et eller flere af de forhold, der påvirker slaget, eller andre fysiske forhold, der påvirker spillet, så spilleren får en potentiel fordel ved udførelsen af et slag.

Forhold, der påvirker slaget

Lejet af spillerens bold, der ligger stille, området for spillerens tilsigtede stance, området for spillerens tilsigtede sving, spillelinjen og lempelsesområdet, hvor spilleren vil droppe eller placere en bold.

  •  “Området for den tilsigtede stance” omfatter både, hvor spilleren vil placere sine fødder og hele det område, som med rimelighed har indflydelse på, hvordan og hvor spillerens krop er placeret i forberedelsen til at udføre det tilsigtede slag.
  • “Området for det tilsigtede sving” omfatter hele det område, som med rimelighed har indflydelse på tilbagesvinget, nedsvinget eller gennemførelsen af svinget for det tilsigtede slag.
  • Hvert af udtrykkene ”leje”, ”spillelinje” og ”lempelsesområde” har sin egen definition.
Droppe

At holde bolden og slippe den, så den falder gennem luften med den hensigt at bringe bolden i spil.

Hvis spilleren slipper bolden uden hensigt om at bringe den i spil, er bolden ikke droppet, og er ikke i spil (se Regel 14.4).

Hver lempelsesregel foreskriver et bestemt lempelsesområde, hvor bolden skal droppes og ligge stille.

Når der tages lempelse, skal spilleren slippe bolden fra et sted i knæhøjde, så bolden:

  • falder lige ned, uden at spilleren kaster, spinner eller ruller den, eller bruger enhver anden bevægelse, som kunne have indflydelse på, hvor bolden vil ligge stille, og
  • ikke rører nogen del af spillerens krop eller udstyr, før den rammer jorden (se Regel 14.3b).
Køllelængde

Længden på den længste af de 14 (eller færre) køller, som spilleren bruger under runden (som tilladt efter Regel 4.1b(1)), og som ikke er putteren.

Hvis f.eks. den længste kølle (som ikke er putteren), en spiller har under runden, er en 109 cm lang driver, er en køllelængde 109 cm for den spiller under den runde.

Køllelængder bruges til at definere spillerens teested på hvert hul og til at bestemme størrelsen på spillerens lempelsesområde, når der tages lempelse efter en Regel.

 

Interpretation Club-Length/1 - Meaning of "Club-Length" When Measuring

For the purposes of measuring when determining a relief area, the length of the entire club, starting at the toe of the club and ending at the butt end of the grip is used. However, if the club has a headcover on it or has an attachment to the end of the grip, neither is allowed to be used as part of the club when using it to measure.

Interpretation Club-Length/2 - How to Measure When Longest Club Breaks

If the longest club a player has during a round breaks, that broken club continues to be used for determining the size of his or her relief areas. However, if the longest club breaks and the player is allowed to replace it with another club (Exception to Rule 4.1b(3)) and he or she does so, the broken club is no longer considered his or her longest club.

If the player starts a round with fewer than 14 clubs and decides to add another club that is longer than the clubs he or she started with, the added club is used for measuring so long as it is not a putter.

Forbedre

At forandre et eller flere af de forhold, der påvirker slaget, eller andre fysiske forhold, der påvirker spillet, så spilleren får en potentiel fordel ved udførelsen af et slag.

Forhold, der påvirker slaget

Lejet af spillerens bold, der ligger stille, området for spillerens tilsigtede stance, området for spillerens tilsigtede sving, spillelinjen og lempelsesområdet, hvor spilleren vil droppe eller placere en bold.

  •  “Området for den tilsigtede stance” omfatter både, hvor spilleren vil placere sine fødder og hele det område, som med rimelighed har indflydelse på, hvordan og hvor spillerens krop er placeret i forberedelsen til at udføre det tilsigtede slag.
  • “Området for det tilsigtede sving” omfatter hele det område, som med rimelighed har indflydelse på tilbagesvinget, nedsvinget eller gennemførelsen af svinget for det tilsigtede slag.
  • Hvert af udtrykkene ”leje”, ”spillelinje” og ”lempelsesområde” har sin egen definition.
Flyttet

Når en bold, der ligger stille, forlader sit oprindelige sted og kommer til at ligge et andet sted, og det kan ses med det blotte øje (uanset om nogen rent faktisk ser den gøre det).

Dette gælder uanset om bolden har bevæget sig opad, nedad eller horisontalt i en hvilken som helst retning fra sit oprindelige sted.

Hvis en bold, der ligger stille, kun vipper (nogle gange kaldet oscillerer) og forbliver på eller returnerer til dens oprindelige sted, så har bolden ikke flyttet sig.

 

Interpretation Moved/1 - When Ball Resting on Object Has Moved

For the purpose of deciding whether a ball must be replaced or whether a player gets a penalty, a ball is treated as having moved only if it has moved in relation to a specific part of the larger condition or object it is resting on, unless the entire object the ball is resting on has moved in relation to the ground.

An example of when a ball has not moved includes when:

  • A ball is resting in the fork of a tree branch and the tree branch moves, but the ball's spot in the branch does not change.

Examples of when a ball has moved include when:

  • A ball is resting in a stationary plastic cup and the cup itself moves in relation to the ground because it is being blown by the wind.
  • A ball is resting in or on a stationary motorized cart that starts to move.

Interpretation Moved/2 - Television Evidence Shows Ball at Rest Changed Position but by Amount Not Reasonably Discernible to Naked Eye

When determining whether or not a ball at rest has moved, a player must make that judgment based on all the information reasonably available to him or her at the time, so that he or she can determine whether the ball must be replaced under the Rules. When the player's ball has left its original position and come to rest in another place by an amount that was not reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time, a player's determination that the ball has not moved is conclusive, even if that determination is later shown to be incorrect through the use of sophisticated technology.

On the other hand, if the Committee determines, based on all of the evidence it has available, that the ball changed its position by an amount that was reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time, the ball will be determined to have moved even though no-one actually saw it move.

Genplacere

At placere en bold ved at lægge den ned og slippe den med den hensigt, at den skal være i spil.

Hvis spilleren placerer en bold uden hensigt til, at den skal være i spil, er bolden ikke genplaceret og er ikke i spil (Se Regel 14.4).

Hver gang en Regel foreskriver, at en bold skal genplaceres, så foreskriver Reglen altid et bestemt sted, hvor bolden skal genplaceres.

 

Interpretation Replace/1 - Ball May Not Be Replaced with a Club

For a ball to be replaced in a right way, it must be set down and let go. This means the player must use his or her hand to put the ball back in play on the spot it was lifted or moved from.

For example, if a player lifts his or her ball from the putting green and sets it aside, the player must not replace the ball by rolling it to the required spot with a club. If he or she does so, the ball is not replaced in the right way and the player gets one penalty stroke under Rule 14.2b(2) (How Ball Must Be Replaced) if the mistake is not corrected before the stroke is made.

Slag

Den fremadgående bevægelse af køllen med den hensigt at slå til bolden.

Bunker

Et specielt forberedt område med sand, der ofte er en fordybning, hvorfra græstørven eller jorden er fjernet.

Dette er ikke en del af en bunker:

  • en bunkerkant eller væg ved afgrænsningen af et forberedt område bestående af jord, græs, stablet græstørv eller kunstige materialer
  • jord eller alle naturgenstande, som gror eller er fastsiddende inden for grænsen af et forberedt område (som f.eks. græs, buske eller træer)
  • sand, som er kommet uden for grænsen af det forberedte område
  • alle andre områder på banen med sand, der ikke er inden for grænsen af det forberedte område (som f.eks. ørken eller andre naturlige sandområder eller områder, der somme tider refereres til som waste areas).

Bunkere er et af de fem definerede områder af banen.

En komité kan definere et forberedt område af sand som en del af det generelle område (som betyder, at det ikke er en bunker) eller kan definere et ikke-forberedt område af sand som en bunker.

Når en bunker er under reparation og Komitéen definerer hele bunkeren som areal under reparation, bliver den behandlet som en del af det generelle område (hvilket betyder, den ikke er en bunker).

Ordet “sand”, som det bruges i denne definition og i Regel 12, omfatter ethvert materiale, som svarer til sand, og som bliver brugt som materiale i bunkere (som f.eks. knuste skaller), lige så vel som al jord, der er blandet i sandet.

Slag

Den fremadgående bevægelse af køllen med den hensigt at slå til bolden.

Forbedre

At forandre et eller flere af de forhold, der påvirker slaget, eller andre fysiske forhold, der påvirker spillet, så spilleren får en potentiel fordel ved udførelsen af et slag.

Leje

Stedet, hvorpå bolden ligger stille, og enhver voksende eller fastsiddende naturgenstand, ikke-flytbar forhindring, integreret genstand eller grænsemarkering som rører bolden eller er umiddelbart ved siden af den.

Løse naturgenstande og flytbare forhindringer er ikke en del af boldens leje.

Generel straf

Tab af hul i hulspil eller to strafslag i slagspil.

Hulspil

En form for spil, hvor en spiller eller side spiller direkte mod en modstander eller modsatte side i en mand mod mand match over en eller flere runder:

  • En spiller eller side vinder et hul i matchen ved at spille hullet i færre slag (omfatter udførte slag og strafslag), og
  • Matchen er vundet, når en spiller eller side fører over modstanderen eller modsatte side med flere huller, end der resterer at blive spillet.

Hulspil kan spilles som en single match (hvor en deltager spiller direkte mod en modstander), en Three-Ball match eller en Foursome eller en Four-Ball match mellem sider af to partnere.

Slagspil

En form for spil, hvor en spiller eller side konkurrerer mod alle andre spillere eller sider i turneringen.

I standardudgaven af slagspil (se Regel 3.3):

  • En spillers eller sides score for en runde er det samlede antal slag (omfattende udførte slag og alle strafslag), der er brugt på at spille bolden i hul på hvert hul, og
  • Vinderen er den spiller eller side, der fuldfører alle runder med det laveste samlede antal slag.

Andre former for slagspil med forskellige scoringsmetoder er Stableford, Maksimum Score og Par/Bogey (se Regel 21).

Alle former for slagspil kan spilles enten som individuelle turneringer (hver spiller konkurrerer for sig selv) eller i turneringer, der omfatter sider af partnere (Foursome eller Four-Ball).

Genplacere

At placere en bold ved at lægge den ned og slippe den med den hensigt, at den skal være i spil.

Hvis spilleren placerer en bold uden hensigt til, at den skal være i spil, er bolden ikke genplaceret og er ikke i spil (Se Regel 14.4).

Hver gang en Regel foreskriver, at en bold skal genplaceres, så foreskriver Reglen altid et bestemt sted, hvor bolden skal genplaceres.

 

Interpretation Replace/1 - Ball May Not Be Replaced with a Club

For a ball to be replaced in a right way, it must be set down and let go. This means the player must use his or her hand to put the ball back in play on the spot it was lifted or moved from.

For example, if a player lifts his or her ball from the putting green and sets it aside, the player must not replace the ball by rolling it to the required spot with a club. If he or she does so, the ball is not replaced in the right way and the player gets one penalty stroke under Rule 14.2b(2) (How Ball Must Be Replaced) if the mistake is not corrected before the stroke is made.

Bunker

Et specielt forberedt område med sand, der ofte er en fordybning, hvorfra græstørven eller jorden er fjernet.

Dette er ikke en del af en bunker:

  • en bunkerkant eller væg ved afgrænsningen af et forberedt område bestående af jord, græs, stablet græstørv eller kunstige materialer
  • jord eller alle naturgenstande, som gror eller er fastsiddende inden for grænsen af et forberedt område (som f.eks. græs, buske eller træer)
  • sand, som er kommet uden for grænsen af det forberedte område
  • alle andre områder på banen med sand, der ikke er inden for grænsen af det forberedte område (som f.eks. ørken eller andre naturlige sandområder eller områder, der somme tider refereres til som waste areas).

Bunkere er et af de fem definerede områder af banen.

En komité kan definere et forberedt område af sand som en del af det generelle område (som betyder, at det ikke er en bunker) eller kan definere et ikke-forberedt område af sand som en bunker.

Når en bunker er under reparation og Komitéen definerer hele bunkeren som areal under reparation, bliver den behandlet som en del af det generelle område (hvilket betyder, den ikke er en bunker).

Ordet “sand”, som det bruges i denne definition og i Regel 12, omfatter ethvert materiale, som svarer til sand, og som bliver brugt som materiale i bunkere (som f.eks. knuste skaller), lige så vel som al jord, der er blandet i sandet.

Ikke-flytbar forhindring

Enhver forhindring, som:

  • ikke kan flyttes uden urimelig anstrengelse eller uden at beskadige forhindringen eller banen, og
  • på anden måde ikke overholder definitionen på en flytbar forhindring.

Komitéen kan definere enhver forhindring som en ikke-flytbar forhindring, selvom den overholder definitionen på en flytbar forhindring.

 

Interpretation Immovable Obstruction/1 - Turf Around Obstruction Is Not Part of Obstruction

Any turf that is leading to an immovable obstruction or covering an immovable obstruction, is not part of the obstruction.

For example, a water pipe is partly underground and partly above ground. If the pipe that is underground causes the turf to be raised, the raised turf is not part of the immovable obstruction.

Forbedre

At forandre et eller flere af de forhold, der påvirker slaget, eller andre fysiske forhold, der påvirker spillet, så spilleren får en potentiel fordel ved udførelsen af et slag.

Råd

Enhver mundtlig kommentar eller handling (som f.eks. at vise hvilken kølle, der lige blev brugt til et slag), som har til formål at udøve indflydelse på spilleren i forbindelse med at:

  • Vælge en kølle,
  • Udføre et slag, eller
  • Planlægge sit spil af et hul eller en runde.

Men råd inkluderer ikke offentlige oplysninger, f.eks.:

  • placeringen af ting på banen, som f.eks. hullet, greenen, fairway, strafområder, bunkere eller en anden spillers bold,
  • Afstanden fra et sted til et andet, eller
  • Reglerne.

 

Interpretation Advice/1 - Verbal Comments or Actions That Are Advice

Examples of when comments or actions are considered advice and are not allowed include:

  • A player makes a statement regarding club selection that was intended to be overheard by another player who had a similar stroke.
  • In individual stroke play, Player A, who has just holed out on the 7th hole, demonstrates to Player B, whose ball was just off the putting green, how to make the next stroke. Because Player B has not completed the hole, Player A gets the penalty on the 7th hole. But, if both Player A and Player B had completed the 7th hole, Player A gets the penalty on the 8th hole.
  • A player's ball is lying badly and the player is deliberating what action to take. Another player comments, "You have no shot at all. If I were you, I would decide to take unplayable ball relief." This comment is advice because it could have influenced the player in deciding how to play during a hole.
  • While a player is setting up to hit his or her shot over a large penalty area filled with water, another player in the group comments, "You know the wind is in your face and it's 250 yards to carry that water?"

Interpretation Advice/2 - Verbal Comments or Actions That Are Not Advice

Examples of comments or actions that are not advice include:

  • During play of the 6th hole, a player asks another player what club he or she used on the 4th hole that is a par-3 of similar length.
  • A player makes a second stroke that lands on the putting green. Another player does likewise. The first player then asks the second player what club was used for the second stroke.
  • After making a stroke, a player says, "I should have used a 5-iron" to another player in the group that has yet to play onto the green, but not intending to influence his or her play.
  • A player looks into another player's bag to determine which club he or she used for the last stroke without touching or moving anything.
  • While lining up a putt, a player mistakenly seeks advice from another player's caddie, believing that caddie to be the player's caddie. The player immediately realizes the mistake and tells the other caddie not to answer.
Slag

Den fremadgående bevægelse af køllen med den hensigt at slå til bolden.

Men et slag er ikke udført, hvis spilleren:

  • Under nedsvinget beslutter sig for ikke at ramme bolden og undgår at gøre dette ved bevidst at stoppe køllehovedet, før det når bolden eller, hvis ikke i stand til at stoppe, så ved bevidst at ramme forbi bolden.
  • Tilfældigt rammer bolden under udførelse af et prøvesving eller under forberedelserne til at udføre et slag.

Når Reglerne bruger ”spille en bold” er betydningen den samme som at udføre et slag.

Spillerens score for et hul eller en runde udgøres af et antal "slag," eller ”udførte slag”, som betyder både alle slag og alle strafslag. (Se Regel 3.1c.)

 

Interpretation Stroke/1 - Determining If a Stroke Was Made

If a player starts the downswing with a club intending to strike the ball, his or her action counts as a stroke when:

  • The clubhead is deflected or stopped by an outside influence (such as the branch of a tree) whether or not the ball is struck.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, whether or not the ball is struck with the shaft.
  • The clubhead separates from the shaft during the downswing and the player continues the downswing with the shaft alone, with the clubhead falling and striking the ball.

The player's action does not count as a stroke in each of following situations:

  • During the downswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player stops the downswing short of the ball, but the clubhead falls and strikes and moves the ball.
  • During the backswing, a player's clubhead separates from the shaft. The player completes the downswing with the shaft but does not strike the ball.
  • A ball is lodged in a tree branch beyond the reach of a club. If the player moves the ball by striking a lower part of the branch instead of the ball, Rule 9.4 (Ball Lifted or Moved by Player) applies.
Flyttet

Når en bold, der ligger stille, forlader sit oprindelige sted og kommer til at ligge et andet sted, og det kan ses med det blotte øje (uanset om nogen rent faktisk ser den gøre det).

Dette gælder uanset om bolden har bevæget sig opad, nedad eller horisontalt i en hvilken som helst retning fra sit oprindelige sted.

Hvis en bold, der ligger stille, kun vipper (nogle gange kaldet oscillerer) og forbliver på eller returnerer til dens oprindelige sted, så har bolden ikke flyttet sig.

 

Interpretation Moved/1 - When Ball Resting on Object Has Moved

For the purpose of deciding whether a ball must be replaced or whether a player gets a penalty, a ball is treated as having moved only if it has moved in relation to a specific part of the larger condition or object it is resting on, unless the entire object the ball is resting on has moved in relation to the ground.

An example of when a ball has not moved includes when:

  • A ball is resting in the fork of a tree branch and the tree branch moves, but the ball's spot in the branch does not change.

Examples of when a ball has moved include when:

  • A ball is resting in a stationary plastic cup and the cup itself moves in relation to the ground because it is being blown by the wind.
  • A ball is resting in or on a stationary motorized cart that starts to move.

Interpretation Moved/2 - Television Evidence Shows Ball at Rest Changed Position but by Amount Not Reasonably Discernible to Naked Eye

When determining whether or not a ball at rest has moved, a player must make that judgment based on all the information reasonably available to him or her at the time, so that he or she can determine whether the ball must be replaced under the Rules. When the player's ball has left its original position and come to rest in another place by an amount that was not reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time, a player's determination that the ball has not moved is conclusive, even if that determination is later shown to be incorrect through the use of sophisticated technology.

On the other hand, if the Committee determines, based on all of the evidence it has available, that the ball changed its position by an amount that was reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time, the ball will be determined to have moved even though no-one actually saw it move.
