Tarkoitus: Sääntö 7 sallii pelaajalle reilun mahdollisuuden etsiä pelissä olevaa palloaan kunkin lyönnin jälkeen kohtuullisia toimenpiteitä käyttäen.

  • Mutta pelaajan täytyy silti olla varovainen, koska pelaajaa rangaistaan, mikäli hänen tarpeettomat toimensa parantavat seuraavan lyönnin olosuhteita.
  • Pelaajaa ei rangaista, jos pallo liikkuu vahingossa sitä etsittäessä ja tunnistettaessa, mutta pallo täytyy asettaa takaisin alkuperäiselle paikalleen.

7.1a/1
Examples of Actions Unlikely to Be Part of a Fair Search

Examples of actions that are unlikely to be considered reasonable as part of a fair search, and will result in the general penalty if there is an improvement to conditions affecting the stroke, include:

  • Taking an action to flatten areas of grass beyond what is reasonably necessary to walk through or search for the ball in the area where the ball is thought to lie;
  • Purposely removing any growing thing from the ground; or
  • Breaking a tree branch to allow easier access to the ball when it could have been reached without doing so.

Kuinka pallo tunnistetaan
7.2/1
Identifying Ball That Cannot Be Retrieved

If a player sees a ball in a tree or some other location where he or she is unable to retrieve the ball, the player may not assume that it is his or hers but rather must identify it in one of the ways provided in Rule 7.2.

This may be done even though the player is unable to retrieve the ball, such as by:

  • Using binoculars or a distance-measuring device to see a mark that definitely identifies it as the player's ball, or
  • Determining that another player or spectator saw the ball come to rest in that specific location after the player's stroke.

7.4/1
Estimating Original Spot on Which to Replace Ball Moved During Search

When a player's ball is accidentally moved during a search and its original spot where it must be replaced must be estimated, the player should consider all reasonably available evidence about where the ball was located before it was moved.

For example, when estimating a ball's original spot, the player should consider:

  • How the ball was found (for example, whether it was stepped on, kicked or moved with a probing club or hand),
  • If it was visible or not, and
  • Its location relative to the ground and any growing objects, such as whether it was lying against or under the grass and how deep in the grass it was located.

In replacing the ball, the player is not required to replace loose impediments (such as leaves) that may have been moved since loose impediments are not part of the lie and, in many cases, it would be nearly impossible to reconstruct the original situation if loose impediments were required to be replaced.

For example, while searching for a ball that is covered by leaves in a penalty area, the player kicks the ball and moves the leaves that were close to the ball. Although the ball must be replaced on its original or estimated spot, the leaves do not need to be put back in their original position even when the ball would certainly have been lying under the leaves.

7.4/2
Player Attempts to Dislodge Ball in Tree or Step on Ball in Tall Grass During Search

If a ball is accidentally moved when a player is trying to find or identify it, Rule 7.4 applies, and the ball must be replaced on the estimated spot without penalty.

This Rule also applies in situations when the player is attempting to find the ball and takes reasonable actions that are likely to reveal the ball's location by moving it.

Example of these reasonable actions include when the player:

  • Believes his or her ball has come to rest in a tree and shakes the tree hoping to dislodge and find the ball, or
  • Is walking through long grass while sweeping his or her feet back and forth hoping to step on or move the ball to find it.
Yleinen rangaistus

Reiän menetys reikäpelissä tai kahden lyönnin rangaistus lyöntipelissä.

Parantaa

Muuttaa yhtä tai useampaa lyöntiin vaikuttavaa olosuhdetta tai muuta peliin vaikuttavaa fyysistä olosuhdetta niin, että pelaaja saa siitä mahdollisesti hyötyä lyöntiinsä.

Lyöntiin vaikuttavat olosuhteet

Pelaajan paikallaan olevan pallon makuu, aiotun lyöntiasennon alue, aiotun svingin vaatima tila, pelilinja ja vapautumisalue, jolle pelaaja aikoo pudottaa tai asettaa pallon.

  • “Aiotun lyöntiasennon alue” käsittää alueen, jolle pelaaja asettaa jalkansa sekä tilan, joka kohtuudella saattaa vaikuttaa siihen, kuinka pelaajan vartalo asettuu hänen valmistautuessaan lyöntiin ja aiotun lyönnin aikana.
  • “Aiotun svingin vaatima tila” käsittää koko sen tilan, joka voi kohtuudella vaikuttaa aiotun lyöntisuorituksen taaksevientiin, lyöntiin tai saattoon.
  • Termeillä “makuu”, “pelilinja” ja “vapautumisalue” on omat määritelmänsä.
Lyönti

Mailan eteenpäin suuntautuva liike, jonka tarkoituksena on osua palloon.

Mutta lyöntiä ei ole tehty, jos pelaaja:

  • Päättää kesken lyönnin olla lyömättä palloa ja tarkoituksellisesti pysäyttää mailan lavan ennen kuin se osuu palloon tai, jos hän ei pysty pysäyttämään lyöntiliikettä, tarkoituksellisesti lyö ohi pallosta.
  • Osuu palloon vahingossa harjoitussvingillä tai valmistautuessaan lyöntiin.

Kun säännöt viittaavat sanontaan “pallon pelaaminen”, se tarkoittaa samaa kuin lyöminen.

Pelaajan tulosta reiältä tai kierrokselta kuvataan myös sanoilla “lyönnit” tai “lyöntimäärä”, joka tarkoittaa suoritettuja lyöntejä ja mahdollisia rangaistuslyöntejä (ks. Sääntö 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.
Liikkunut

Kun paikallaan ollut pallo on siirtynyt pysyvästi pois paikaltaan ja tämän voi havaita paljain silmin (riippumatta siitä, näkikö kukaan sitä vai ei).

Tätä pätee myös, jos pallo on siirtynyt ylöspäin, alaspäin tai mihin tahansa suuntaan pois alkuperäiseltä paikaltaan.

Pallo ei ole liikkunut, jos pallo heiluu (joskus tätä kutsutaan myös värähtelyksi) ja pysyy paikallaan tai palaa takaisin alkuperäiselle paikalleen.

 

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.

Asettaa takaisin

Pallon asettaminen laittamalla se paikalleen ja päästämällä siitä irti tarkoituksena laittaa pallo peliin.

Jos pelaaja laskee pallon maahan ilman, että hänen tarkoituksenaan on laittaa pallo peliin, palloa ei ole asetettu takaisin, eikä se ole pelissä (ks. Sääntö 14.4).

Kun sääntö edellyttää, että pallo on asetettava takaisin paikalleen, sääntö ilmaisee myös kyseisen tarkan paikan.

 

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.

Irrallinen luonnonhaitta

Kaikki irralliset luontoon kuuluvat kuten:

  • Kivet, irrallinen ruoho, lehdet, oksat ja kepit,
  • Kuolleet eläimet ja eläinten jätökset,
  • Madot, hyönteiset ja vastaavat eläimet, joita voidaan helposti siirtää, sekä kasat ja verkot, joita ne rakentavat (kuten matojen tekemät maakasat ja muurahaiskeot), ja
  • Paakkuuntunut maa-aines (sisältäen ilmastusrei’istä syntyvät jäänteet).

Luontoon kuuluvat eivät ole irrallisia, jos ne ovat:

  • Kiinnittyneitä tai kasvavia,
  • Tukevasti maahan painuneita (tarkoittaa, ettei niitä voi helposti nostaa), tai
  • Palloon tarttuneita.

Erikoistapaukset:

  • Hiekka ja irtomaa eivät ole irrallisia luonnonhaittoja.
  • Kaste, huurre ja vesi eivät ole irrallisia luonnonhaittoja.
  • Lumi ja luonnon jää (muu kuin huurre), ovat pelaajan päätöksen mukaan joko irrallisia luonnonhaittoja tai jos ne ovat maassa, tilapäistä vettä.
  • Hämähäkin seitit ovat irrallisia luonnonhaittoja, vaikka ne ovat kiinnittyneitä johonkin muuhun.

 

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.

Makuu

Paikka, jossa pallo on paikallaan, ja mikä tahansa kasvava tai kiinnittynyt luontoon kuuluva, kiinteä haitta, olennainen rakenne tai ulkorajan merkki koskettaa palloa tai on sen välittömässä läheisyydessä.

Irralliset luonnonhaitat ja liikuteltavat haitat eivät ole osa pallon makuuta.

Estealue

Alue, josta pelaaja voi vapautua yhden lyönnin rangaistuksella, jos hänen pallonsa on pysähtynyt sinne.

Estealueita ovat:

  • Kaikki kentällä olevat vesialueet (oli toimikunta merkinnyt ne tai ei), mukaan lukien meri, järvi, lampi, joki, oja, pintakuivatusoja tai jokin muu avoin vesialue (vaikka niissä ei olisi vettä), ja
  • Mikä muu tahansa alue, jonka toimikunta määrittelee estealueeksi.

Estealue on yksi viidestä määritellystä kentän alueesta.

Estealueita on kahdentyyppisiä ja ne erotetaan toisistaan eri väreillä:

  • Keltaiset estealueet (merkitään keltaisella viivalla tai keltaisilla paaluilla) antavat pelaajalle kaksi vapautumismahdollisuutta (Sääntö 17.1d(1) ja (2)).
  • Punaiset estealueet (merkitään punaisella viivalla tai punaisilla paaluilla) antavat pelaajalle yhden lisävapautumismahdollisuuden (Sääntö 17.1d(3)) edellisessä kohdassa mainittujen kahden vapautumismahdollisuuden lisäksi.

Jos toimikunta ei ole merkinnyt tai ilmoittanut estealueen väriä, käsitellään sitä punaisena estealueena.

Estealueen raja kulkee sekä ylöspäin että alaspäin maanpinnasta:

  • Tämä tarkoittaa, että koko maapohja ja kaikki muu (esim. luonnolliset tai valmistetut esineet) rajan sisällä oleva on estealueella, olivat ne sitten maanpinnan ylä- tai alapuolella.
  • Jos esine on sekä rajan sisäpuolella että ulkopuolella (esim. estealueen yli kulkeva silta tai alueella kasvava puu, jonka oksat ovat ulkopuolella tai päinvastoin), niin vain ne osat, jotka ovat sisäpuolella, ovat estealueella.

Estealueen raja tulisi määritellä paaluilla, viivalla tai fyysisillä ominaisuuksilla:

  • Paalut: Kun estealueen raja on merkitty paaluin, paalut ovat estealueella ja raja kulkee maassa estealueelta katsottuna kunkin paalun ulommaisen kohdan kautta.
  • Viivat: Kun estealueen raja on merkitty viivalla, viiva on estealueella ja raja kulkee maassa estealueelta katsottuna viivan ulkoreunan kohdalla.
  • Fyysiset ominaisuudet: Kun alue määritetään fyysisillä ominaisuuksilla (esim. kukkapenkki tai siirtonurmialue), tulee toimikunnan kertoa, kuinka estealueen reuna on määritelty.

Kun estealue on määritelty viivalla tai fyysisillä ominaisuuksilla, paaluja voidaan käyttää osoittamaan missä estealue on, mutta kyseisillä paaluilla ei ole muuta tarkoitusta.

Jos toimikunta ei ole määritellyt vesialueen rajaa, niin estealue määräytyy sen luonnollisen rajan mukaan (tämä tarkoittaa kohtaa, jossa maa alkaa viettää alaspäin painaumaan, jossa vesi pysyy).

Jos avoimessa vesialueessa ei yleensä ole vettä (kuivatusoja tai veden viettoalue on kuiva muulloin kuin sateisena aikana), voi toimikunta määritellä tämän alueen osaksi yleistä pelialuetta (jolloin se ei ole estealuetta).

Asettaa takaisin

Pallon asettaminen laittamalla se paikalleen ja päästämällä siitä irti tarkoituksena laittaa pallo peliin.

Jos pelaaja laskee pallon maahan ilman, että hänen tarkoituksenaan on laittaa pallo peliin, palloa ei ole asetettu takaisin, eikä se ole pelissä (ks. Sääntö 14.4).

Kun sääntö edellyttää, että pallo on asetettava takaisin paikalleen, sääntö ilmaisee myös kyseisen tarkan paikan.

 

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.

Liikkunut

Kun paikallaan ollut pallo on siirtynyt pysyvästi pois paikaltaan ja tämän voi havaita paljain silmin (riippumatta siitä, näkikö kukaan sitä vai ei).

Tätä pätee myös, jos pallo on siirtynyt ylöspäin, alaspäin tai mihin tahansa suuntaan pois alkuperäiseltä paikaltaan.

Pallo ei ole liikkunut, jos pallo heiluu (joskus tätä kutsutaan myös värähtelyksi) ja pysyy paikallaan tai palaa takaisin alkuperäiselle paikalleen.

 

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.

Asettaa takaisin

Pallon asettaminen laittamalla se paikalleen ja päästämällä siitä irti tarkoituksena laittaa pallo peliin.

Jos pelaaja laskee pallon maahan ilman, että hänen tarkoituksenaan on laittaa pallo peliin, palloa ei ole asetettu takaisin, eikä se ole pelissä (ks. Sääntö 14.4).

Kun sääntö edellyttää, että pallo on asetettava takaisin paikalleen, sääntö ilmaisee myös kyseisen tarkan paikan.

 

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.

Liikkunut

Kun paikallaan ollut pallo on siirtynyt pysyvästi pois paikaltaan ja tämän voi havaita paljain silmin (riippumatta siitä, näkikö kukaan sitä vai ei).

Tätä pätee myös, jos pallo on siirtynyt ylöspäin, alaspäin tai mihin tahansa suuntaan pois alkuperäiseltä paikaltaan.

Pallo ei ole liikkunut, jos pallo heiluu (joskus tätä kutsutaan myös värähtelyksi) ja pysyy paikallaan tai palaa takaisin alkuperäiselle paikalleen.

 

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.

  • 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.

  • A ball is resting in or on a stationary motorized cart that starts to move.
