Formål: Regel 9 dekker et sentralt prinsipp i spillet: «Spill ballen som den ligger.»

  • Hvis spillerens ball kommer til ro og så blir flyttet av naturkrefter slik som vind eller vann, må spilleren normalt spille den fra dens nye punkt.
  • Hvis en ball i ro er løftet eller flyttet av hvem som helst eller ethvert fremmedelement før slaget slås, må ballen bli plassert tilbake på sitt opprinnelige punkt.
  • Spillerne bør passe på i nærheten av enhver ball i ro, fordi en spiller som er årsak til at hans eller hennes egen ball, eller en motspillers ball flytter seg, vil normalt få en straff (unntatt på puttinggreenen).

9.2a/1
When a Ball Is Treated as Having Moved

As stated in the definitions, to "move", a ball at rest must leave its original spot and come to rest on any other spot and the movement must be enough that it can be seen by the naked eye. In order to treat the ball as moved, there must be knowledge or virtual certainty that the ball has moved.

An example of when it is known or virtually certain that a ball has moved is:

  • A player marks, lifts and replaces his or her ball on the putting green. As the player walks away, the ball rolls a short distance and comes to rest. The player does not see this, but another player observes the ball moving and informs the player. Since it is known that the ball moved, the player must replace the ball on its original spot under Rule 13.1d(2) (Ball Moved by Natural Forces).

An example of when it is not known or virtually certain that a ball has moved is:

  • Player A and Player B play their approach shots to the putting green, but because of the contours of the putting green they could not see where the two balls came to rest. Unknown to the players, Player B's ball struck Player A's ball at rest and it rolled some distance farther from the hole. As long as this information does not come to the attention of the players before Player A makes the next stroke, Player A does not get a penalty for playing from where his or her ball came to rest after being struck by Player B's ball.
9.2a/2
Player Responsible for Actions that Cause Ball to Move Even When Not Aware Ball Moved

In the second bullet point in 9.2a/1, the player did not make a stroke from a wrong place because it was not known or virtually certain that the ball had moved at the time the ball was played.

However, if it was the player's actions (or the actions of the player's caddie or partner) that caused the ball to move, the player is always responsible for the movement, even when the player is not aware that his or her actions caused the ball to move.

Examples of this include:

  • A player's ball lies in the general area and he or she removes a loose impediment near the ball that causes the ball to move. Because the player is not looking at the ball, he or she was not aware that the ball moved. The player gets one penalty stroke under Rule 15.1b (Ball Moved When Removing Loose Impediment) and he or she must replace the ball.
  • A player's caddie or his or her partner removed roping and staking, and this causes the player's ball to move while the player was watching another player make a stroke. There is no penalty for moving the ball under Rule 15.2a(1) (Removal of Movable Obstruction) but the player must replace the ball.

In both of these situations, even though the player was not aware that the ball moved, if the player makes a stroke without first replacing the ball, the player gets the general penalty for playing from a wrong place under Rule 14.7a (Place from Where Ball Must Be Played).

Procedure When Player’s Ball Is Dislodged From Tree

Rule 9.4 applies wherever a ball in play is on the course. This includes when a ball is in a tree. However, when the player does not intend to play the ball as it lies but is trying only to identify it, or intends to retrieve it to use another Rule, the Exceptions to Rule 9.4b apply and there is no penalty. For example:

  • In searching for his or her ball, a player sees a ball lying in a tree but cannot identify it. The player climbs the tree in an attempt to identify the ball and in doing so accidentally dislodges the ball from the tree. The ball is identified as the player's ball.
    In this case, since the ball was accidentally moved in taking reasonable actions to identify it, there is no penalty for moving the ball (Rule 7.4).
    The player must replace the ball or may directly use a relief Rule (such as Rule 19 - Unplayable Ball).
    In two situations, the player's only option is to take relief under a relief Rule:
    • The player is unable to replace the ball because he or she cannot reach the spot where the ball was moved from when the player was identifying it, or
    • The player can reach that spot but the ball will not come to rest on that spot and the player cannot reach the spot where it will come to rest under Rule 14.2e (Replaced Ball Does Not Stay on Spot).
  • A player's ball has not yet been found but is believed to be lodged in a tree in the general area. The player makes it clear that if the ball is found he or she will take unplayable ball relief under Rule 19. The player shakes the tree; the ball falls down and is identified by the player within three minutes of starting search.
    The player may now take relief under Rule 19 (Unplayable Ball) adding only the one penalty stroke prescribed by that Rule with no additional penalty for causing the ball to move. If not known, the player must estimate the spot where the ball lay in the tree when applying Rule 19.

However, if the player moves the ball when he or she is not intending to identify it or without intending to take relief under another Rule, the player does get a penalty for a breach of Rule 9.4. For example:

  • A player's ball is in a tree and he or she intends to play it. In preparing for the stroke, the player accidentally dislodges the ball.
    The player gets one penalty stroke under Rule 9.4 for causing the ball to move. The player must replace the ball or may take relief directly under a relief Rule. If the player takes relief under Rule 19, he or she gets a total of two penalty strokes, one under Rule 9.4 and one under Rule 19.

Ball Deliberately Touched but Not Moved Results in Penalty to Player

When the ball in play is deliberately touched by the player, even if it does not move, the player gets one penalty stroke under Rule 9.4b.

For example, a player gets one penalty stroke if he or she:

  • Without first marking the ball's spot, rotates the ball on the putting green to line up the trademark with the hole, even if the ball remains on the same spot. If the player had marked the ball before touching or rotating it, there would have been no penalty.
  • Without first marking the ball's spot, rotates the ball anywhere on the course to identify it and the ball is the player's ball.
  • Deliberately touches the ball with a club in preparing to make a stroke.
  • Holds the ball steady with his or her hand or positions a pine cone or stick against the ball to prevent the ball from moving while he or she removes some loose impediments or brushes something off the ball.
9.4b/2
Meaning of “Trying to Find”

In Rule 7.4 (Ball Accidentally Moved in Trying to Find or Identify It) and Exception 2 of Rule 9.4, there is no penalty if a ball is accidentally moved while "trying to find" it. "Trying to find" includes actions that can reasonably be considered part of searching for the ball, including the actions allowed by Rule 7.1 (How to Fairly Search for Ball). It does not include actions before a search begins such as walking to the area where the ball is expected to be.

For example, a player's ball is hit towards a wooded area. The player is not aware the ball has struck a tree and deflected back towards the teeing area. When the player is still some distance from the area where he or she believes the ball is likely to be and before starting to search, the player accidentally kicks his or her ball. Because this was not while trying to find the ball, the player gets one penalty stroke under Rule 9.4b for accidentally moving his or her ball and must replace the ball.

9.4b/3
Ball Moved When Search Temporarily Stopped

In 9.4b/2 a player gets a penalty if the ball is moved when he or she is not trying to find it.

However, If a player accidentally moves his or her ball when search is temporarily stopped due to circumstances outside the player’s control, the player gets no penalty for moving the ball.

For example:

  • The player stops searching for his or her ball to get out of the way of another group who is going to play through. While getting out of the way, the player accidentally moves his or her ball.
  • The Committee suspends play and the player begins to leave the area and accidentally steps on and moves his or her ball.
9.4b/4
Meaning of “While” in Rule 9 .4b Exception 4

Exception 4 uses "while" to govern the time period when the Exception will apply to a player who moves his or her ball in play as a result of "reasonable actions". For the meaning of "reasonable actions", see 9.4b/5.

The use of the word "while" indicates that every reasonable action in applying a Rule has a beginning and an end and, if the ball’s movement occurs during the time that such action is taking place, the Exception applies.

Examples of situations covered by Exception 4, therefore resulting in no penalty for causing the ball to move, include when:

  • The player finds a ball that he or she believes to be his or her ball in play. In the process of identification, the player approaches the ball to mark and lift it and accidentally slips and moves the ball.
    Even though the player was not marking or lifting the ball when it was moved, it was still moved while the player was identifying the ball.
  • The player has dropped a ball when taking relief and then reaches down to lift the tee that was marking the relief area. When standing up, he or she accidentally drops a club that he or she was holding and the club hits and moves the ball in play.
    Even though the player has already dropped the ball to take relief, the ball was moved while he or she was taking relief.
9.4b/5
Meaning of “Reasonable Actions” in Rule 9.4b Exception 4

In many situations, the Rules require a player to perform actions near or next to the ball (such as lifting, marking, measuring, etc.). If the ball is accidentally moved while taking these "reasonable actions", Exception 4 to Rule 9.4 applies.

However, there are other situations when the player is taking actions farther from the ball where, even though the ball might be moved as a result of those actions, Exception 4 also applies because those actions are "reasonable".

These include when:

  • The player approaches his or her ball for the purpose of taking relief and accidentally kicks a rock or accidentally drops his or her club that strikes and moves the ball.
  • The player removes stakes and rope (movable obstructions) used for gallery control purposes some distance ahead of the ball and in removing one of the stakes, he or she causes the others to become loose and fall to the ground, moving his or her ball in play.
  • The player restores the line of play by brushing sand away from the fringe with his or her hat under Rule 8.1d (Restoring Conditions Worsened After Ball Came to Rest), and the sand splashes onto the ball and causes it to move.

In other situations, Exception 4 to Rule 9.4 does not apply because the player's actions are not "reasonable".

These include when:

  • The player approaches his or her ball to take relief and kicks a rock in frustration that accidentally strikes and moves the ball.
  • The player throws a club down into the relief area in preparing to measure, and the club accidentally strikes and moves the ball.
  • The player lifts a bunker rake or his or her club and throws it out of a bunker. The rake or club falls back into the bunker, striking and moving the ball.

Player Lifts Ball Under Rule 16 .1b That Allows Free Relief but Then Decides Not to Take Free Relief

In the general area, if a player lifts his or her ball with the intention to take free relief under Rule 16.1b (Abnormal Course Conditions), but then decides not to proceed under that Rule despite relief being available, the player's right to lift the ball under Rule 16.1b is no longer valid.

After lifting the ball but before doing anything else, the player has the following options:

  • Replace the ball in its original position with a penalty of one stroke (Rule 9.4b);
  • Replace the ball in its original position with a penalty of one stroke (Rule 9.4b) and then take relief under Rule 19.2 (Unplayable Ball Relief), getting an additional penalty of one stroke for a total of two penalty strokes;
  • Directly take relief under Rule 19.2b or c, without replacing the ball and using the spot where the original ball lay to determine the reference point for the relief procedure, getting a penalty of one stroke under Rule 19.2 and an additional penalty of one stroke under Rule 9.4b for a total of two penalty strokes;
  • Drop the ball under Rule 16.1b and then either play the ball as it lies without penalty or, using its new position to determine the reference point, take relief under any of the options of Rule 19.2, getting a penalty of only one stroke; or
  • Directly take stroke-and-distance relief, without dropping the ball under Rule 16.1b, getting a penalty of one stroke under Rule 19.2a and no penalty under Rule 9.4b, as the player does not need to establish a new reference point before taking relief under Rule 19.2a.

Player Declares Found Ball as His or Hers and This Causes Opponent to Lift Another Ball That Turns Out to Be the Player’s Ball

Under Rule 9.5b, an opponent gets one penalty stroke for lifting the player's ball unless one of the Exceptions applies.

For example, during a search Player A finds a ball and states that it is his or hers. Player B (the opponent) finds another ball and lifts it. Player A then realizes the found ball was not in fact his or her ball and the ball Player B lifted was Player A's ball.

Since the ball was not in fact found when Player B lifted Player A's ball, it is considered to have been accidentally moved during search and Exception 3 to Rule 9.5b applies. The player or opponent must replace the ball without penalty to anyone.

9.6/1
Outside Influence Moved by Wind Causes Ball to Move

Wind is not itself an outside influence, but if wind causes an outside influence to move a player's ball, Rule 9.6 applies.

For example, if a player's ball comes to rest in a plastic bag (movable obstruction) that is lying on the ground, and a gust of wind blows the bag and moves the ball, the bag (outside influence) is considered to have moved the ball. The player may either:

  • Directly take relief under Rule 15.2a by estimating the point right under where the ball was at rest in the plastic bag before the ball was moved, or
  • Replace the ball moved by the bag by applying Rule 9.6 (by replacing the ball and the bag) and then decide to play the ball as it lies or take relief under Rule 15.2a (Relief From Movable Obstruction).
9.6/2
Where to Replace Ball When It Was Moved from Unknown Location

If a ball has been moved by an outside influence and the original spot where the ball lay is not known, the player must use his or her reasonable judgment (Rule 1.3b(2)) to determine where the ball had come to rest before it was moved.

For example, on a particular hole, part of the putting green and adjoining area cannot be seen by the players playing towards it. Near the putting green there is a bunker and a penalty area. A player plays towards the putting green and cannot tell where the ball came to rest. The players see a person (outside influence) with a ball. The person drops the ball and runs away. The player identifies it as his or her ball. The player does not know whether the ball was on the putting green, in the general area, in the bunker, or in the penalty area.

As it is impossible to know where the ball should be replaced, the player must use reasonable judgment. If it is equally likely the ball came to rest on the putting green, in the general area, in the bunker, or in the penalty area, a reasonable judgment would be to estimate the ball came to rest in the general area.

9.6/3
Player Learns That Ball Moved After Stroke Made

If it is not known or virtually certain that the player's ball has been moved by an outside influence, the player must play the ball as it lies. If information that the ball was in fact moved by an outside influence only becomes known to the player after the ball has been played, the player did not play from a wrong place because this knowledge did not exist when the player made the stroke.

9.6/4
Ball at Rest Played and then Discovered to Have Been Moved by Outside Influence; Ball Turns Out to be Wrong Ball

If a player discovers, after playing his or her ball, that it had been moved onto the course by an outside influence after the ball had come to rest out of bounds, the player has played a wrong ball (see Definition). Because it was not known or virtually certain at the time the ball was played, the player does not get a penalty for playing a wrong ball under Rule 6.3c(1) but might need to correct the mistake by proceeding under Rule 18.2b (What to Do When Ball Is Lost or Out of Bounds) depending when that discovery is made:

  • In match play, the player must correct the mistake if the discovery that the ball was moved onto the course by the outside influence is made before the opponent makes his or her next stroke or takes a similar action (such as conceding the hole).
    If that discovery occurs after the opponent makes his or her next stroke or takes a similar action, the player must continue to play out the hole with the wrong ball.
  • In stroke play, the player must correct the mistake if the discovery that the ball was moved onto the course by an outside influence is made before making a stroke to begin another hole or, for the final hole of the round, before returning his or her scorecard.
    If that discovery occurs after the player has made a stroke on the next hole or, for the final hole of the round, after returning his or her scorecard, the player’s score with the wrong ball counts.

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.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/1 - Applying "Known or Virtually Certain" Standard When Ball Moves

When it is not "known" what caused the ball to move, all reasonably available information must be considered and the evidence must be evaluated to determine if it is "virtually certain" that the player, opponent or outside influence caused the ball to move.

Depending on the circumstances, reasonably available information may include, but is not limited to:

  • The effect of any actions taken near the ball (such as movement of loose impediments, practice swings, grounding club and taking a stance),
  • Time elapsed between such actions and the movement of the ball,
  • The lie of the ball before it moved (such as on a fairway, perched on longer grass, on a surface imperfection or on the putting green),
  • The conditions of the ground near the ball (such as the degree of slope or presence of surface irregularities, etc), and
  • Wind speed and direction, rain and other weather conditions.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/2 - Virtual Certainty Is Irrelevant if It Comes to Light After Three-Minute Search Expires

Determining whether there is knowledge or virtual certainty must be based on evidence known to the player at the time the three-minute search time expires.

Examples of when the player's later findings are irrelevant include when:

  • A player's tee shot comes to rest in an area containing heavy rough and a large animal hole. After a three-minute search, it is determined that it is not known or virtually certain that the ball is in the animal hole. As the player returns to the teeing area, the ball is found in the animal hole.
  • Even though the player has not yet put another ball in play, the player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b - What to Do When Ball is Lost or Out of Bounds) since it was not known or virtually certain that the ball was in the animal hole, when the search time expired.
  • A player cannot find his or her ball and believes it may have been picked up by a spectator (outside influence), but there is not enough evidence to be virtually certain of this. A short time after the three-minute search time expires, a spectator is found to have the player's ball.

The player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b) since the movement by the outside influence only became known after the search time expired.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/3 - Player Unaware Ball Played by Another Player

It must be known or virtually certain that a player's ball has been played by another player as a wrong ball to treat it as being moved.

For example, in stroke play, Player A and Player B hit their tee shots into the same general location. Player A finds a ball and plays it. Player B goes forward to look for his or her ball and cannot find it. After three minutes, Player B starts back to the tee to play another ball. On the way, Player B finds Player A's ball and knows then that Player A has played his or her ball in error.

Player A gets the general penalty for playing a wrong ball and must then play his or her own ball (Rule 6.3c). Player A's ball was not lost even though both players searched for more than three minutes because Player A did not start searching for his or her ball; the searching was for Player B's ball. Regarding Player B's ball, Player B's original ball was lost and he or she must put another ball in play under penalty of stroke and distance (Rule 18.2b), because it was not known or virtually certain when the three-minute search time expired that the ball had been played by another player.

Player A gets the general penalty for playing a wrong ball and must then play his or her own ball (Rule 6.3c). Player A's ball was not lost even though both players searched for more than three minutes because Player A did not start searching for his or her ball; the searching was for Player B's ball. Regarding Player B's ball, Player B's original ball was lost and he or she must put another ball in play under penalty of stroke and distance (Rule 18.2b), because it was not known or virtually certain when the three-minute search time expired that the ball had been played by another player.

Plassere tilbake

Å plassere en ball ved å legge den ned og slippe taket på den, med den hensikt at den er i spill.

Hvis spilleren legger en ball ned uten at hensikten er at den er i spill, har ballen ikke blitt plassert tilbake og er ikke i spill (se regel 14.4).

Alltid når en regel krever at en ball skal bli plassert tilbake, angir regelen et bestemt punkt hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake.

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.

Puttinggreen

Området på hullet spilleren spiller som:

  • Er spesielt preparert for putting, eller
  • Komiteen har definert som puttinggreenen (slik som når en provisorisk green brukes).

Puttinggreenen på et hull omfatter hullet spilleren prøver å spille ballen ned i. Puttinggreenen er ett av de fem definerte områdene på banen. Puttinggreenene på alle andre hull (som spilleren ikke spiller for øyeblikket) er feil greener, og er en del av det generelle området.

Grensen til en puttinggreen er definert ut fra hvor man kan se at det spesielt preparerte området starter (slik som hvor gresset tydelig er klippet for å vise grensen), bortsett fra hvis Komiteen definerer grensen på en annen måte (slik som en linje eller prikker).

Hvis en dobbelgreen brukes for to forskjellige hull:

  • Hele det preparerte området med begge hullene anses som puttinggreenen ved spill av hvert hull.

Men Komiteen kan definere en grense som deler dobbelgreenen i to forskjellige puttinggreener, slik at når en spiller spiller ett av hullene, er delen av dobbelgreenen for det andre hullet, en feil green.

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

 

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.

Kjent eller så godt som sikkert

Et fast uttrykk for å bestemme hva som skjedde med en spillers ball – for eksempel om ballen kom til ro i et straffeområde, hvorvidt den flyttet seg eller hva som forårsaket flyttingen.

Kjent eller så godt som sikkert betyr mer enn bare mulig eller trolig. Det betyr enten at:

  • Det er avgjørende bevis for at den aktuelle hendelsen skjedde med spillerens ball, for eksempel når spilleren eller andre vitner så det skje, eller
  • Selv om det er en meget liten grad av tvil, viser all rimelig tilgjengelig informasjon at det er minst 95 prosent sannsynlig at det skjedde.

"All rimelig tilgjengelig informasjon" inkluderer all informasjon spilleren har og all annen informasjon han eller hun kan få tak i med rimelige anstrengelser og uten unødvendig forsinkelse.

 

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/1 - Applying "Known or Virtually Certain" Standard When Ball Moves

When it is not "known" what caused the ball to move, all reasonably available information must be considered and the evidence must be evaluated to determine if it is "virtually certain" that the player, opponent or outside influence caused the ball to move.

Depending on the circumstances, reasonably available information may include, but is not limited to:

  • The effect of any actions taken near the ball (such as movement of loose impediments, practice swings, grounding club and taking a stance),
  • Time elapsed between such actions and the movement of the ball,
  • The lie of the ball before it moved (such as on a fairway, perched on longer grass, on a surface imperfection or on the putting green),
  • The conditions of the ground near the ball (such as the degree of slope or presence of surface irregularities, etc), and
  • Wind speed and direction, rain and other weather conditions.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/2 - Virtual Certainty Is Irrelevant if It Comes to Light After Three-Minute Search Expires

Determining whether there is knowledge or virtual certainty must be based on evidence known to the player at the time the three-minute search time expires.

Examples of when the player's later findings are irrelevant include when:

  • A player's tee shot comes to rest in an area containing heavy rough and a large animal hole. After a three-minute search, it is determined that it is not known or virtually certain that the ball is in the animal hole. As the player returns to the teeing area, the ball is found in the animal hole.
  • Even though the player has not yet put another ball in play, the player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b - What to Do When Ball is Lost or Out of Bounds) since it was not known or virtually certain that the ball was in the animal hole, when the search time expired.
  • A player cannot find his or her ball and believes it may have been picked up by a spectator (outside influence), but there is not enough evidence to be virtually certain of this. A short time after the three-minute search time expires, a spectator is found to have the player's ball.

The player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b) since the movement by the outside influence only became known after the search time expired.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/3 - Player Unaware Ball Played by Another Player

It must be known or virtually certain that a player's ball has been played by another player as a wrong ball to treat it as being moved.

For example, in stroke play, Player A and Player B hit their tee shots into the same general location. Player A finds a ball and plays it. Player B goes forward to look for his or her ball and cannot find it. After three minutes, Player B starts back to the tee to play another ball. On the way, Player B finds Player A's ball and knows then that Player A has played his or her ball in error.

Player A gets the general penalty for playing a wrong ball and must then play his or her own ball (Rule 6.3c). Player A's ball was not lost even though both players searched for more than three minutes because Player A did not start searching for his or her ball; the searching was for Player B's ball. Regarding Player B's ball, Player B's original ball was lost and he or she must put another ball in play under penalty of stroke and distance (Rule 18.2b), because it was not known or virtually certain when the three-minute search time expired that the ball had been played by another player.

Plassere tilbake

Å plassere en ball ved å legge den ned og slippe taket på den, med den hensikt at den er i spill.

Hvis spilleren legger en ball ned uten at hensikten er at den er i spill, har ballen ikke blitt plassert tilbake og er ikke i spill (se regel 14.4).

Alltid når en regel krever at en ball skal bli plassert tilbake, angir regelen et bestemt punkt hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake.

Puttinggreen

Området på hullet spilleren spiller som:

  • Er spesielt preparert for putting, eller
  • Komiteen har definert som puttinggreenen (slik som når en provisorisk green brukes).

Puttinggreenen på et hull omfatter hullet spilleren prøver å spille ballen ned i. Puttinggreenen er ett av de fem definerte områdene på banen. Puttinggreenene på alle andre hull (som spilleren ikke spiller for øyeblikket) er feil greener, og er en del av det generelle området.

Grensen til en puttinggreen er definert ut fra hvor man kan se at det spesielt preparerte området starter (slik som hvor gresset tydelig er klippet for å vise grensen), bortsett fra hvis Komiteen definerer grensen på en annen måte (slik som en linje eller prikker).

Hvis en dobbelgreen brukes for to forskjellige hull:

  • Hele det preparerte området med begge hullene anses som puttinggreenen ved spill av hvert hull.

Men Komiteen kan definere en grense som deler dobbelgreenen i to forskjellige puttinggreener, slik at når en spiller spiller ett av hullene, er delen av dobbelgreenen for det andre hullet, en feil green.

Hull

Sluttpunktet på puttinggreenen på hullet som spilles:

  • Hullet må være 108 millimeter (4 ¼ tommer) i diameter og minst 101,6 millimeter (4 tommer) dypt.
  • Hvis det brukes en fôring, må dens ytre diameter ikke overskride 108 millimeter (4 ¼ tommer). Fôringen må være senket minst 25,4 millimeter (1 tomme) under overflaten til puttinggreenen, bortsett fra når jordsmonnet tilsier at den bør være nærmere overflaten.

Ordet “hull” (når ikke brukt som en definisjon i kursiv) er brukt gjennomgående i reglene for å beskrive en del av banen knyttet til et bestemt utslagsområde, puttinggreen og hull. Spill av et hull begynner fra utslagsområdet og slutter når ballen er hullet utputtinggreenen (eller når reglene på annen måte sier at hullet er avsluttet).

 

Slag

Bevegelsen av køllen fremover for å slå til ballen.

Men et slag er ikke slått hvis spilleren:

  • Bestemmer seg i nedsvingen for ikke å slå ballen og unngår å gjøre dette ved å bevisst stoppe køllehodet før det når frem til ballen eller, hvis det ikke er mulig å stoppe, bevisst bommer på ballen.
  • Ved et uhell treffer ballen under en prøvesving eller under forberedelsene til å slå et slag.

Når reglene refererer til «spille en ball», betyr det det samme som å slå et slag.

Spillerens score på et hull eller en runde er beskrevet med antall «slag» eller «slag slått», som betyr både alle slag slått og alle straffeslag (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.
Slag

Bevegelsen av køllen fremover for å slå til ballen.

Men et slag er ikke slått hvis spilleren:

  • Bestemmer seg i nedsvingen for ikke å slå ballen og unngår å gjøre dette ved å bevisst stoppe køllehodet før det når frem til ballen eller, hvis det ikke er mulig å stoppe, bevisst bommer på ballen.

  • 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.
Feil sted

Ethvert sted på banen bortsett fra der spilleren er pålagt eller tillatt å spille hans eller hennes ball etter reglene.

Eksempler på å spille fra feil sted er:

  • Spille en ball etter å ha plassert den tilbake på feil punkt eller uten å ha plassert den tilbake når påkrevd etter reglene.
  • Spille en droppet ball utenfor det pålagte fritaksområdet.
  • Ta fritak etter en feil regel slik at ballen blir droppet i og spilt fra et sted ikke tillatt etter reglene.
  • Spille en ball fra et spilleforbudområde eller når et spilleforbudområde påvirker spillerens område for planlagt slagstilling eller sving.

Å spille en ball fra et sted utenfor utslagsområdet ved start av spill på et hull eller forsøk på å korrigere den feilen, er ikke spill fra feil sted (se regel 6.1b).

Kjent eller så godt som sikkert

Et fast uttrykk for å bestemme hva som skjedde med en spillers ball – for eksempel om ballen kom til ro i et straffeområde, hvorvidt den flyttet seg eller hva som forårsaket flyttingen.

Kjent eller så godt som sikkert betyr mer enn bare mulig eller trolig. Det betyr enten at:

  • Det er avgjørende bevis for at den aktuelle hendelsen skjedde med spillerens ball, for eksempel når spilleren eller andre vitner så det skje, eller
  • Selv om det er en meget liten grad av tvil, viser all rimelig tilgjengelig informasjon at det er minst 95 prosent sannsynlig at det skjedde.

"All rimelig tilgjengelig informasjon" inkluderer all informasjon spilleren har og all annen informasjon han eller hun kan få tak i med rimelige anstrengelser og uten unødvendig forsinkelse.

 

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/1 - Applying "Known or Virtually Certain" Standard When Ball Moves

When it is not "known" what caused the ball to move, all reasonably available information must be considered and the evidence must be evaluated to determine if it is "virtually certain" that the player, opponent or outside influence caused the ball to move.

Depending on the circumstances, reasonably available information may include, but is not limited to:

  • The effect of any actions taken near the ball (such as movement of loose impediments, practice swings, grounding club and taking a stance),
  • Time elapsed between such actions and the movement of the ball,
  • The lie of the ball before it moved (such as on a fairway, perched on longer grass, on a surface imperfection or on the putting green),
  • The conditions of the ground near the ball (such as the degree of slope or presence of surface irregularities, etc), and
  • Wind speed and direction, rain and other weather conditions.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/2 - Virtual Certainty Is Irrelevant if It Comes to Light After Three-Minute Search Expires

Determining whether there is knowledge or virtual certainty must be based on evidence known to the player at the time the three-minute search time expires.

Examples of when the player's later findings are irrelevant include when:

  • A player's tee shot comes to rest in an area containing heavy rough and a large animal hole. After a three-minute search, it is determined that it is not known or virtually certain that the ball is in the animal hole. As the player returns to the teeing area, the ball is found in the animal hole.
  • Even though the player has not yet put another ball in play, the player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b - What to Do When Ball is Lost or Out of Bounds) since it was not known or virtually certain that the ball was in the animal hole, when the search time expired.
  • A player cannot find his or her ball and believes it may have been picked up by a spectator (outside influence), but there is not enough evidence to be virtually certain of this. A short time after the three-minute search time expires, a spectator is found to have the player's ball.

The player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b) since the movement by the outside influence only became known after the search time expired.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/3 - Player Unaware Ball Played by Another Player

It must be known or virtually certain that a player's ball has been played by another player as a wrong ball to treat it as being moved.

For example, in stroke play, Player A and Player B hit their tee shots into the same general location. Player A finds a ball and plays it. Player B goes forward to look for his or her ball and cannot find it. After three minutes, Player B starts back to the tee to play another ball. On the way, Player B finds Player A's ball and knows then that Player A has played his or her ball in error.

Player A gets the general penalty for playing a wrong ball and must then play his or her own ball (Rule 6.3c). Player A's ball was not lost even though both players searched for more than three minutes because Player A did not start searching for his or her ball; the searching was for Player B's ball. Regarding Player B's ball, Player B's original ball was lost and he or she must put another ball in play under penalty of stroke and distance (Rule 18.2b), because it was not known or virtually certain when the three-minute search time expired that the ball had been played by another player.

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

 

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.

Caddie

En som hjelper en spiller under en runde inkludert på disse måter:

  • Bærer, flytter eller tar hånd om køller: En person som bærer, flytter (slik som med en golfbil eller tralle) eller tar hånd om spillerens køller under spill, er spillerens caddie selv om denne ikke er utnevnt som caddie av spilleren, unntatt når det gjøres for å flytte spillerens køller, bag eller golfbil bort fra noe, eller som en tjeneste (slik som å hente en kølle som spilleren har glemt).
  • Gi råd: En spillers caddie er den eneste personen (bortsett fra en partner eller en partners caddie) som en spiller kan spørre om råd.

En caddie kan også hjelpe spilleren på andre måter tillatt etter reglene (se regel 10.3b).

Partner

En spiller som konkurrerer sammen med en annen spiller som en side, i enten matchspill eller slagspill.

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

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.

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

 

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.

Generelt område

Området på banen som omfatter alle deler av banen unntatt de fire andre definerte områdene: (1) Utslagsområdet spilleren må spille fra ved start av hullet han eller hun spiller, (2) alle  straffeområder, (3) alle bunkere, og (4) puttinggreenen på hullet spilleren spiller.

Det generelle området inkluderer:

  • Alle utslagssteder på banen bortsett fra utslagsområdet, og
  • Alle feil greener.
Løse naturgjenstand

Alle løse naturlige gjenstander slik som:

  • Steiner, løst gress, løv, greiner og kvister.
  • Døde dyr og avfall fra dyr.
  • Mark, insekter og tilsvarende dyr som enkelt kan bli flyttet, og haugene eller spindelvevet de lager (slik som avfall fra mark og maurtuer), og
  • Klumper av kompakt jord (inkludert jordplugger fra luftehull).

Slike naturgjenstander er ikke løse hvis de er:

  • Festet eller groende.
  • Solid festet i grunnen (som betyr at de ikke lett kan tas opp), eller
  • Klistret til ballen.

Spesielle tilfeller:

  • Sand og løs jord er ikke løse naturgjenstander.
  • Dugg, rim og vann er ikke løse naturgjenstander.
  • Snø og naturlig is (annet enn rim), er enten løse naturgjenstander eller, etter spillerens valg, midlertidig vann når det er på bakken.
  • Edderkoppnett er løse naturgjenstander selv om de er festet til en annen gjenstand.

 

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.

Alltid når en regel krever at en ball skal bli plassert tilbake, angir regelen et bestemt punkt hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake.

 

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.

Caddie

En som hjelper en spiller under en runde inkludert på disse måter:

  • Bærer, flytter eller tar hånd om køller: En person som bærer, flytter (slik som med en golfbil eller tralle) eller tar hånd om spillerens køller under spill, er spillerens caddie selv om denne ikke er utnevnt som caddie av spilleren, unntatt når det gjøres for å flytte spillerens køller, bag eller golfbil bort fra noe, eller som en tjeneste (slik som å hente en kølle som spilleren har glemt).
  • Gi råd: En spillers caddie er den eneste personen (bortsett fra en partner eller en partners caddie) som en spiller kan spørre om råd.

En caddie kan også hjelpe spilleren på andre måter tillatt etter reglene (se regel 10.3b).

Partner

En spiller som konkurrerer sammen med en annen spiller som en side, i enten matchspill eller slagspill.

Slag

Bevegelsen av køllen fremover for å slå til ballen.

Men et slag er ikke slått hvis spilleren:

  • Bestemmer seg i nedsvingen for ikke å slå ballen og unngår å gjøre dette ved å bevisst stoppe køllehodet før det når frem til ballen eller, hvis det ikke er mulig å stoppe, bevisst bommer på ballen.
  • Ved et uhell treffer ballen under en prøvesving eller under forberedelsene til å slå et slag.

Når reglene refererer til «spille en ball», betyr det det samme som å slå et slag.

Spillerens score på et hull eller en runde er beskrevet med antall «slag» eller «slag slått», som betyr både alle slag slått og alle straffeslag (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.

Generell straff

Tap av hull i matchspill eller to straffeslag i slagspill.

Feil sted

Ethvert sted på banen bortsett fra der spilleren er pålagt eller tillatt å spille hans eller hennes ball etter reglene.

Eksempler på å spille fra feil sted er:

  • Spille en ball etter å ha plassert den tilbake på feil punkt eller uten å ha plassert den tilbake når påkrevd etter reglene.
  • Spille en droppet ball utenfor det pålagte fritaksområdet.
  • Ta fritak etter en feil regel slik at ballen blir droppet i og spilt fra et sted ikke tillatt etter reglene.
  • Spille en ball fra et spilleforbudområde eller når et spilleforbudområde påvirker spillerens område for planlagt slagstilling eller sving.

Å spille en ball fra et sted utenfor utslagsområdet ved start av spill på et hull eller forsøk på å korrigere den feilen, er ikke spill fra feil sted (se regel 6.1b).

I spill

Statusen til en spillers ball når den ligger på banen og brukes ved spill av et hull:

  • En ball blir først i spill på et hull:
    • Når spilleren slår et slag på den innenfor utslagsområdet, eller
    • I matchspill, når spilleren slår et slag på den utenfor utslagsområdet og motspilleren ikke annullerer slaget etter regel 6.1b.
  • Denne ballen forblir i spill til den er hullet ut, unntatt den er ikke lenger i spill:
    • Når den er løftet fra banen.
    • Når den er mistet (selv om den er i ro på banen) eller kommer til ro utenfor banen, eller
    • Når den er erstattet av en annen ball, selv om det ikke er tillatt etter en regel.

En ball som ikke er i spill er en feil ball.

Spilleren kan ikke ha mer enn én ball i spill til enhver tid. (Se regel 6.3d for et begrenset antall tilfeller når en spiller kan spille flere enn én ball samtidig på et hull).

Når reglene henviser til en ball i ro eller i bevegelse, betyr dette at en ball er i spill.

Når en ballmarkør er lagt ned for å markere punktet til en ball i spill:

  • Hvis ballen ikke har blitt løftet, er den fortsatt i spill, og
  • Hvis ballen har blitt løftet og plassert tilbake, er den i spill selv om ballmarkøren ikke har blitt fjernet.
Bane

Hele området for spill innenfor alle banegrenser bestemt av Komitéen:

  • Alle områder innenfor grensen er inne på og en del av banen.
  • Alle områder utenfor grensen er utenfor banen og ikke en del av banen.
  • Grensen strekker seg både opp over bakken og ned under bakken.

Banen består av de fem definerte områdene på banen.

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.

Alltid når en regel krever at en ball skal bli plassert tilbake, angir regelen et bestemt punkt hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake.

 

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.

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

 

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.

Generelt område

Området på banen som omfatter alle deler av banen unntatt de fire andre definerte områdene: (1) Utslagsområdet spilleren må spille fra ved start av hullet han eller hun spiller, (2) alle  straffeområder, (3) alle bunkere, og (4) puttinggreenen på hullet spilleren spiller.

Det generelle området inkluderer:

  • Alle utslagssteder på banen bortsett fra utslagsområdet, og
  • Alle feil greener.

Slag

Bevegelsen av køllen fremover for å slå til ballen.

Men et slag er ikke slått hvis spilleren:

  • Bestemmer seg i nedsvingen for ikke å slå ballen og unngår å gjøre dette ved å bevisst stoppe køllehodet før det når frem til ballen eller, hvis det ikke er mulig å stoppe, bevisst bommer på ballen.
  • Ved et uhell treffer ballen under en prøvesving eller under forberedelsene til å slå et slag.

Når reglene refererer til «spille en ball», betyr det det samme som å slå et slag.

Spillerens score på et hull eller en runde er beskrevet med antall «slag» eller «slag slått», som betyr både alle slag slått og alle straffeslag (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 spill

Statusen til en spillers ball når den ligger på banen og brukes ved spill av et hull:

  • En ball blir først i spill på et hull:
    • Når spilleren slår et slag på den innenfor utslagsområdet, eller
    • I matchspill, når spilleren slår et slag på den utenfor utslagsområdet og motspilleren ikke annullerer slaget etter regel 6.1b.
  • Denne ballen forblir i spill til den er hullet ut, unntatt den er ikke lenger i spill:
    • Når den er løftet fra banen.
    • Når den er mistet (selv om den er i ro på banen) eller kommer til ro utenfor banen, eller
    • Når den er erstattet av en annen ball, selv om det ikke er tillatt etter en regel.

En ball som ikke er i spill er en feil ball.

Spilleren kan ikke ha mer enn én ball i spill til enhver tid. (Se regel 6.3d for et begrenset antall tilfeller når en spiller kan spille flere enn én ball samtidig på et hull).

Når reglene henviser til en ball i ro eller i bevegelse, betyr dette at en ball er i spill.

Når en ballmarkør er lagt ned for å markere punktet til en ball i spill:

  • Hvis ballen ikke har blitt løftet, er den fortsatt i spill, og
  • Hvis ballen har blitt løftet og plassert tilbake, er den i spill selv om ballmarkøren ikke har blitt fjernet.

Markere

For å vise punktet til en ball i ro ved enten å:

  • Plassere en ballmarkør rett bak eller rett ved siden av ballen, eller
  • Holde en kølle på bakken rett bak eller rett ved siden av ballen.

Dette gjøres for å vise punktet hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake etter at den er løftet.

Puttinggreen

Området på hullet spilleren spiller som:

  • Er spesielt preparert for putting, eller
  • Komiteen har definert som puttinggreenen (slik som når en provisorisk green brukes).

Puttinggreenen på et hull omfatter hullet spilleren prøver å spille ballen ned i. Puttinggreenen er ett av de fem definerte områdene på banen. Puttinggreenene på alle andre hull (som spilleren ikke spiller for øyeblikket) er feil greener, og er en del av det generelle området.

Grensen til en puttinggreen er definert ut fra hvor man kan se at det spesielt preparerte området starter (slik som hvor gresset tydelig er klippet for å vise grensen), bortsett fra hvis Komiteen definerer grensen på en annen måte (slik som en linje eller prikker).

Hvis en dobbelgreen brukes for to forskjellige hull:

  • Hele det preparerte området med begge hullene anses som puttinggreenen ved spill av hvert hull.

Men Komiteen kan definere en grense som deler dobbelgreenen i to forskjellige puttinggreener, slik at når en spiller spiller ett av hullene, er delen av dobbelgreenen for det andre hullet, en feil green.

Hull

Sluttpunktet på puttinggreenen på hullet som spilles:

  • Hullet må være 108 millimeter (4 ¼ tommer) i diameter og minst 101,6 millimeter (4 tommer) dypt.
  • Hvis det brukes en fôring, må dens ytre diameter ikke overskride 108 millimeter (4 ¼ tommer). Fôringen må være senket minst 25,4 millimeter (1 tomme) under overflaten til puttinggreenen, bortsett fra når jordsmonnet tilsier at den bør være nærmere overflaten.

Ordet “hull” (når ikke brukt som en definisjon i kursiv) er brukt gjennomgående i reglene for å beskrive en del av banen knyttet til et bestemt utslagsområde, puttinggreen og hull. Spill av et hull begynner fra utslagsområdet og slutter når ballen er hullet utputtinggreenen (eller når reglene på annen måte sier at hullet er avsluttet).

Bane

Hele området for spill innenfor alle banegrenser bestemt av Komitéen:

  • Alle områder innenfor grensen er inne på og en del av banen.
  • Alle områder utenfor grensen er utenfor banen og ikke en del av banen.
  • Grensen strekker seg både opp over bakken og ned under bakken.

Banen består av de fem definerte områdene på banen.

Løse naturgjenstand

Alle løse naturlige gjenstander slik som:

  • Steiner, løst gress, løv, greiner og kvister.
  • Døde dyr og avfall fra dyr.
  • Mark, insekter og tilsvarende dyr som enkelt kan bli flyttet, og haugene eller spindelvevet de lager (slik som avfall fra mark og maurtuer), og
  • Klumper av kompakt jord (inkludert jordplugger fra luftehull).

Slike naturgjenstander er ikke løse hvis de er:

  • Festet eller groende.
  • Solid festet i grunnen (som betyr at de ikke lett kan tas opp), eller
  • Klistret til ballen.

Spesielle tilfeller:

  • Sand og løs jord er ikke løse naturgjenstander.
  • Dugg, rim og vann er ikke løse naturgjenstander.
  • Snø og naturlig is (annet enn rim), er enten løse naturgjenstander eller, etter spillerens valg, midlertidig vann når det er på bakken.
  • Edderkoppnett er løse naturgjenstander selv om de er festet til en annen gjenstand.

 

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.

Utslagsområde

Området en spiller må spille fra ved start på hullet han eller hun skal spille.

Utslagsområdet er et rektangel som er to køllelengder langt hvor:

  • Den fremre grensen er definert av linjen mellom de fremste punktene på to utslagsmerker satt opp av Komiteen, og
  • Sidegrensene er definert av linjene bakover fra utsidepunktene av utslagsmerkene.

Utslagsområdet er ett av de fem definerte områdene på banen.

Alle andre utslagssteder på banen (selv på det samme hullet eller alle andre hull) er del av det generelle området.

Flyttet

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

 

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.

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.

Dropp

Å holde ballen og slippe den slik at den faller gjennom luften, med den hensikt å få ballen i spill.

Hvis spilleren slipper ballen uten at hensikten er å sette den i spill, er ballen ikke droppet og er ikke i spill (se regel 14.4).

Hver fritaksregel angir et spesifikt fritaksområde hvor ballen må bli droppet og komme til ro.

Ved fritak må spilleren slippe ballen fra knehøyde slik at ballen:

  • Faller rett ned uten at spilleren kaster, skrur, eller ruller den eller bruker en bevegelse som kan påvirke hvor ballen vil komme til ro, og
  • Ikke berører noen del av spillerens kropp eller utstyr før den treffer grunnen (se regel 14.3b).
Peg

En gjenstand brukt til å løfte ballen over bakkenivå ved spill fra utslagsområdet. Den må ikke være lengre enn 101,6 mm (4 tommer) og godkjent etter utstyrsreglene.

Fritaksområde

Området hvor en spiller må droppe en ball når det tas fritak etter en regel. Hver fritaksregel pålegger spilleren å bruke et spesielt fritaksområde hvis størrelse og plassering er bestemt av disse tre faktorene:

  • Referansepunkt: Punktet fra hvor størrelsen på fritaksområdet er målt.
  • Størrelse på fritaksområde målt fra referansepunkt: Fritaksområdet er enten én eller to køllelengder fra referansepunktet, men med følgende begrensninger:
  • Begrensninger på plassering av fritaksområde: Plasseringen av fritaksområdet kan være begrenset på en eller flere måter slik at, for eksempel:
    • Det er kun i spesielt definerte områder på banen, slik som kun i det generelle området eller ikke i en bunker eller et straffeområde.
    • Det er ikke nærmere hullet enn referansepunktet eller må være utenfor et straffeområde eller en bunker fra der fritak blir tatt, eller
    • Det er der hvor det ikke er påvirkning (som definert i den bestemte regelen) fra forholdet der fritak blir tatt.

Ved bruk av køllelengder for å anslå størrelsen på et fritaksområde, kan spilleren måle direkte på tvers av en grøft, hull eller lignende ting, og direkte på tvers eller gjennom en gjenstand (slik som et tre, gjerde, vegg, tunnel, avløp eller sprinkelhode), men det er ikke tillatt å måle gjennom grunn som naturlig skråner opp eller ned.

Se fremgangsmåter for Komiteen, del 2I  (Komiteen kan velge å tillate eller kreve at spilleren bruker en droppesone som et fritaksområde ved visse fritak).


Klargjøring - Avgjøre om ball er i fritaksområde

Ved avgjørelse om en ball har kommet til ro innenfor et fritaksområde (for eksempel enten én eller to køllelengder fra referansepunktet avhengig av regelen som brukes), er ballen i fritaksområdet hvis noen del av ballen er innenfor målingen med én eller to køllelengder. Men en ball er ikke i et fritaksområde hvis noen del av ballen er nærmere hullet enn referansepunktet eller når noen del av ballen har påvirkning fra forholdet det tas fritak uten straff fra.

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.

Markere

For å vise punktet til en ball i ro ved enten å:

  • Plassere en ballmarkør rett bak eller rett ved siden av ballen, eller
  • Holde en kølle på bakken rett bak eller rett ved siden av ballen.

Dette gjøres for å vise punktet hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake etter at den er løftet.

Flyttbar hindring

En hindring som uten anstrengelse kan bli flyttet og uten å skade hindringen eller banen.

Hvis del av en uflyttbar hindring eller integrert gjenstand (slik som en port eller dør eller del av en festet kabel) tilfredsstiller disse to forhold, anses den delen som en flyttbar hindring.

Men dette gjelder ikke hvis den flyttbare delen av en uflyttbar hindring eller integrert gjenstand ikke er ment å flyttes (slik som en løs stein som er del av et steingjerde).

Selv om en hindring er flyttbar kan Komiteen definere den som en uflyttbar hindring.

I spill

Statusen til en spillers ball når den ligger på banen og brukes ved spill av et hull:

  • En ball blir først i spill på et hull:
    • Når spilleren slår et slag på den innenfor utslagsområdet, eller
    • I matchspill, når spilleren slår et slag på den utenfor utslagsområdet og motspilleren ikke annullerer slaget etter regel 6.1b.
  • Denne ballen forblir i spill til den er hullet ut, unntatt den er ikke lenger i spill:
    • Når den er løftet fra banen.
    • Når den er mistet (selv om den er i ro på banen) eller kommer til ro utenfor banen, eller
    • Når den er erstattet av en annen ball, selv om det ikke er tillatt etter en regel.

En ball som ikke er i spill er en feil ball.

Spilleren kan ikke ha mer enn én ball i spill til enhver tid. (Se regel 6.3d for et begrenset antall tilfeller når en spiller kan spille flere enn én ball samtidig på et hull).

Når reglene henviser til en ball i ro eller i bevegelse, betyr dette at en ball er i spill.

Når en ballmarkør er lagt ned for å markere punktet til en ball i spill:

  • Hvis ballen ikke har blitt løftet, er den fortsatt i spill, og
  • Hvis ballen har blitt løftet og plassert tilbake, er den i spill selv om ballmarkøren ikke har blitt fjernet.
Spillelinje

Linjen som spilleren ønsker at hans eller hennes ball skal følge etter et slag, inkludert området på denne linjen som er i rimelig avstand opp over bakken og på begge sider av denne linjen.

Spillelinjen er ikke nødvendigvis en rett linje mellom to punkter (for eksempel kan det være en buet linje basert på spillerens ønske om hvor ballen skal gå).

Fritaksområde

Området hvor en spiller må droppe en ball når det tas fritak etter en regel. Hver fritaksregel pålegger spilleren å bruke et spesielt fritaksområde hvis størrelse og plassering er bestemt av disse tre faktorene:

  • Referansepunkt: Punktet fra hvor størrelsen på fritaksområdet er målt.
  • Størrelse på fritaksområde målt fra referansepunkt: Fritaksområdet er enten én eller to køllelengder fra referansepunktet, men med følgende begrensninger:
  • Begrensninger på plassering av fritaksområde: Plasseringen av fritaksområdet kan være begrenset på en eller flere måter slik at, for eksempel:
    • Det er kun i spesielt definerte områder på banen, slik som kun i det generelle området eller ikke i en bunker eller et straffeområde.
    • Det er ikke nærmere hullet enn referansepunktet eller må være utenfor et straffeområde eller en bunker fra der fritak blir tatt, eller
    • Det er der hvor det ikke er påvirkning (som definert i den bestemte regelen) fra forholdet der fritak blir tatt.

Ved bruk av køllelengder for å anslå størrelsen på et fritaksområde, kan spilleren måle direkte på tvers av en grøft, hull eller lignende ting, og direkte på tvers eller gjennom en gjenstand (slik som et tre, gjerde, vegg, tunnel, avløp eller sprinkelhode), men det er ikke tillatt å måle gjennom grunn som naturlig skråner opp eller ned.

Se fremgangsmåter for Komiteen, del 2I  (Komiteen kan velge å tillate eller kreve at spilleren bruker en droppesone som et fritaksområde ved visse fritak).


Klargjøring - Avgjøre om ball er i fritaksområde

Ved avgjørelse om en ball har kommet til ro innenfor et fritaksområde (for eksempel enten én eller to køllelengder fra referansepunktet avhengig av regelen som brukes), er ballen i fritaksområdet hvis noen del av ballen er innenfor målingen med én eller to køllelengder. Men en ball er ikke i et fritaksområde hvis noen del av ballen er nærmere hullet enn referansepunktet eller når noen del av ballen har påvirkning fra forholdet det tas fritak uten straff fra.

Bunker

Et spesielt bearbeidet område med sand, som ofte er en fordypning hvor torv eller jord er fjernet.

Disse er ikke del av en bunker:

  • En bunkerleppe, vegg eller fronten på grensen til et bearbeidet område som består av jord, gress, stablet torv eller kunstige materialer.
  • Jord eller alt som gror eller er en fast naturgjenstand innenfor grensen til det bearbeidede området (slik som gress, busker eller trær).
  • Sand som er slått ut av eller er utenfor grensen til et bearbeidet område, og
  • Alle andre områder med sand på banen som ikke er innenfor grensen til et bearbeidet område (slik som ørken og andre naturlige områder med sand eller områder som noen ganger omtales som ødemark/waste area).

Bunkere er én av de fem definerte områdene på banen.

En komité kan definere et bearbeidet område med sand som en del av det generelle området (hvilket betyr at det ikke er en bunker) eller kan definere et ikke-bearbeidet område med sand som en bunker.

Når en bunker blir reparert og Komiteen definerer hele bunkeren som grunn under reparasjon, er den å anse som en del av det generelle området (hvilket betyr at den ikke er en bunker).

Ordet "sand" brukt i denne definisjonen og i regel 12 inkluderer alt materiale tilsvarende sand som brukes som bunkermateriale (slik som knuste skjell), så vel som jord blandet inn i sanden.

Området på banen som omfatter alle deler av banen unntatt de fire andre definerte områdene: (1) Utslagsområdet spilleren må spille fra ved start av hullet han eller hun spiller, (2) alle  straffeområder, (3) alle bunkere, og (4) puttinggreenen på hullet spilleren spiller.

Det generelle området inkluderer:

  • Alle utslagssteder på banen bortsett fra utslagsområdet, og
  • Alle feil greener.
Plassere tilbake

Å plassere en ball ved å legge den ned og slippe taket på den, med den hensikt at den er i spill.

Hvis spilleren legger en ball ned uten at hensikten er at den er i spill, har ballen ikke blitt plassert tilbake og er ikke i spill (se regel 14.4).

Alltid når en regel krever at en ball skal bli plassert tilbake, angir regelen et bestemt punkt hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake.

 

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.

Hvis spilleren slipper ballen uten at hensikten er å sette den i spill, er ballen ikke droppet og er ikke i spill (se regel 14.4).

Hver fritaksregel angir et spesifikt fritaksområde hvor ballen må bli droppet og komme til ro.

Ved fritak må spilleren slippe ballen fra knehøyde slik at ballen:

  • Faller rett ned uten at spilleren kaster, skrur, eller ruller den eller bruker en bevegelse som kan påvirke hvor ballen vil komme til ro, og
  • Ikke berører noen del av spillerens kropp eller utstyr før den treffer grunnen (se regel 14.3b).
Slag og lengde

Fremgangsmåten og straff når en spiller tar fritak etter reglene 17, 18 eller 19 ved å spille en ball fra der det forrige slaget ble slått (se regel 14.6).

Begrepet slag og lengde betyr at spilleren både:

  • Får ett straffeslag, og
  • Taper fordelen av enhver oppnådd lengde mot hullet fra punktet der det forrige slaget ble slått.
Dropp

Motspiller

Personen en spiller konkurrerer mot i en match. Betegnelsen motspiller gjelder bare i matchspill.

Motspiller

Personen en spiller konkurrerer mot i en match. Betegnelsen motspiller gjelder bare i matchspill.

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

 

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.

Motspiller

Personen en spiller konkurrerer mot i en match. Betegnelsen motspiller gjelder bare i matchspill.

Plassere tilbake

Å plassere en ball ved å legge den ned og slippe taket på den, med den hensikt at den er i spill.

Hvis spilleren legger en ball ned uten at hensikten er at den er i spill, har ballen ikke blitt plassert tilbake og er ikke i spill (se regel 14.4).

Alltid når en regel krever at en ball skal bli plassert tilbake, angir regelen et bestemt punkt hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake.

 

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.

Fremmedelement

Enhver av disse personene eller ting som kan påvirke hva som skjer med en spillers ball eller utstyr eller banen:

  • Enhver person (inkludert en annen spiller), unntatt spilleren eller hans eller hennes caddie eller spillerens partner eller motspiller eller noen av deres caddier.
  • Ethvert dyr, og
  • Enhver naturlig eller kunstig gjenstand eller noe annet (inkludert en annen ball i bevegelse), unntatt naturkrefter.

 

Interpretation Outside Influence/1 - Status of Air and Water When Artificially Propelled

Although wind and water are natural forces and not outside influences, artificially propelled air and water are outside influences.

Examples include:

  • If a ball at rest on the putting green has not been lifted and replaced and is moved by air from a greenside fan, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).
  • If a ball at rest is moved by water coming from an irrigation system, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).

Flyttbar hindring

En hindring som uten anstrengelse kan bli flyttet og uten å skade hindringen eller banen.

Hvis del av en uflyttbar hindring eller integrert gjenstand (slik som en port eller dør eller del av en festet kabel) tilfredsstiller disse to forhold, anses den delen som en flyttbar hindring.

Men dette gjelder ikke hvis den flyttbare delen av en uflyttbar hindring eller integrert gjenstand ikke er ment å flyttes (slik som en løs stein som er del av et steingjerde).

Selv om en hindring er flyttbar kan Komiteen definere den som en uflyttbar hindring.

 

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

An abandoned ball is a movable obstruction.

Puttinggreen

Området på hullet spilleren spiller som:

  • Er spesielt preparert for putting, eller
  • Komiteen har definert som puttinggreenen (slik som når en provisorisk green brukes).

Puttinggreenen på et hull omfatter hullet spilleren prøver å spille ballen ned i. Puttinggreenen er ett av de fem definerte områdene på banen. Puttinggreenene på alle andre hull (som spilleren ikke spiller for øyeblikket) er feil greener, og er en del av det generelle området.

Grensen til en puttinggreen er definert ut fra hvor man kan se at det spesielt preparerte området starter (slik som hvor gresset tydelig er klippet for å vise grensen), bortsett fra hvis Komiteen definerer grensen på en annen måte (slik som en linje eller prikker).

Hvis en dobbelgreen brukes for to forskjellige hull:

  • Hele det preparerte området med begge hullene anses som puttinggreenen ved spill av hvert hull.

Men Komiteen kan definere en grense som deler dobbelgreenen i to forskjellige puttinggreener, slik at når en spiller spiller ett av hullene, er delen av dobbelgreenen for det andre hullet, en feil green.

Bunker

Et spesielt bearbeidet område med sand, som ofte er en fordypning hvor torv eller jord er fjernet.

Disse er ikke del av en bunker:

  • En bunkerleppe, vegg eller fronten på grensen til et bearbeidet område som består av jord, gress, stablet torv eller kunstige materialer.
  • Jord eller alt som gror eller er en fast naturgjenstand innenfor grensen til det bearbeidede området (slik som gress, busker eller trær).
  • Sand som er slått ut av eller er utenfor grensen til et bearbeidet område, og
  • Alle andre områder med sand på banen som ikke er innenfor grensen til et bearbeidet område (slik som ørken og andre naturlige områder med sand eller områder som noen ganger omtales som ødemark/waste area).

Bunkere er én av de fem definerte områdene på banen.

En komité kan definere et bearbeidet område med sand som en del av det generelle området (hvilket betyr at det ikke er en bunker) eller kan definere et ikke-bearbeidet område med sand som en bunker.

Når en bunker blir reparert og Komiteen definerer hele bunkeren som grunn under reparasjon, er den å anse som en del av det generelle området (hvilket betyr at den ikke er en bunker).

Ordet "sand" brukt i denne definisjonen og i regel 12 inkluderer alt materiale tilsvarende sand som brukes som bunkermateriale (slik som knuste skjell), så vel som jord blandet inn i sanden.

Straffeområde

Et område hvor fritak med ett straffeslag er tillatt hvis spillerens ball kommer til ro der.

Et straffeområde er:

  • Alle vann på banen (uansett merket eller ikke av Komiteen) inkludert hav, sjø, dam, elv, dike, åpen dreneringsgrøft eller annet åpent vannløp (selv om det ikke inneholder vann), og
  • Alle andre deler av banen definert av Komiteen som et straffeområde.

Et straffeområde er ett av de fem definerte områder på banen.

Det er to forskjellige typer straffeområde kjennetegnet av fargen de er merket med:

  • Gule straffeområder (merket med gule linjer eller gule staker) gir spilleren to muligheter for fritak (reglene 17.1d(1) og (2).
  • Røde straffeområder (merket med røde linjer eller røde staker) gir spilleren en ekstra sideveis mulighet for fritak (regel 17.1d (3)), i tillegg til de to mulighetene for gule straffeområder.

Hvis fargen på et straffeområde ikke er merket eller angitt av Komiteen, behandles det som et rødt straffeområde.

Grensen til et straffeområde strekker seg både opp fra grunnen og ned under grunnen:

  • Dette betyr at all grunn og alt annet (slik som alle naturlige eller kunstige gjenstander) innenfor grensen er del av straffeområdet, enten på, over eller under grunnens overflate.
  • Hvis en gjenstand er både innenfor og utenfor grensen (slik som en bro over et straffeområde, eller et tre rotfast innenfor grensen med greiner som brer seg utenfor grensen eller omvendt), er kun den delen av gjenstanden som er innenfor grensen del av straffeområdet.

Grensen til et straffeområde bør defineres med staker, linjer eller fysiske kjennetegn:

  • Staker: Når definert med staker, er grensen til straffeområdet definert av linjen mellom utsidepunktene av stakene på bakkenivå, og stakene er innenfor straffeområdet.
  • Linjer: Når definert med en malt linje på bakken, er grensen til straffeområdet utsidekanten av linjen, og linjen i seg selv er i straffeområdet.
  • Fysiske kjennetegn: Når definert med fysiske kjennetegn (slik som en strand eller ørkenområde eller en støttemur), bør Komiteen opplyse hvordan grensen til straffeområdet er definert.

Når grensen til et straffeområde er definert med linjer eller fysiske kjennetegn, kan staker bli brukt for å vise hvor straffeområdet er, men de har ingen annen betydning.

Når grensen til et vann ikke er definert av Komiteen, er grensen til det straffeområdet definert av dens naturlige grenser (som er hvor grunnen skråner ned og former fordypningen som kan inneholde vann).

Hvis et åpent vannløp vanligvis ikke inneholder vann (slik som en dreneringsgrøft eller avløp som er tørt bortsett fra når det regner mye), kan Komiteen definere dette området som del av det generelle området (som betyr at det ikke er et straffeområde).

Puttinggreen

Området på hullet spilleren spiller som:

  • Er spesielt preparert for putting, eller
  • Komiteen har definert som puttinggreenen (slik som når en provisorisk green brukes).

Puttinggreenen på et hull omfatter hullet spilleren prøver å spille ballen ned i. Puttinggreenen er ett av de fem definerte områdene på banen. Puttinggreenene på alle andre hull (som spilleren ikke spiller for øyeblikket) er feil greener, og er en del av det generelle området.

Grensen til en puttinggreen er definert ut fra hvor man kan se at det spesielt preparerte området starter (slik som hvor gresset tydelig er klippet for å vise grensen), bortsett fra hvis Komiteen definerer grensen på en annen måte (slik som en linje eller prikker).

Hvis en dobbelgreen brukes for to forskjellige hull:

  • Hele det preparerte området med begge hullene anses som puttinggreenen ved spill av hvert hull.

Men Komiteen kan definere en grense som deler dobbelgreenen i to forskjellige puttinggreener, slik at når en spiller spiller ett av hullene, er delen av dobbelgreenen for det andre hullet, en feil green.

Fremmedelement

Enhver av disse personene eller ting som kan påvirke hva som skjer med en spillers ball eller utstyr eller banen:

  • Enhver person (inkludert en annen spiller), unntatt spilleren eller hans eller hennes caddie eller spillerens partner eller motspiller eller noen av deres caddier.
  • Ethvert dyr, og
  • Enhver naturlig eller kunstig gjenstand eller noe annet (inkludert en annen ball i bevegelse), unntatt naturkrefter.

 

Interpretation Outside Influence/1 - Status of Air and Water When Artificially Propelled

Although wind and water are natural forces and not outside influences, artificially propelled air and water are outside influences.

Examples include:

  • If a ball at rest on the putting green has not been lifted and replaced and is moved by air from a greenside fan, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).
  • If a ball at rest is moved by water coming from an irrigation system, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).
Puttinggreen

Området på hullet spilleren spiller som:

  • Er spesielt preparert for putting, eller
  • Komiteen har definert som puttinggreenen (slik som når en provisorisk green brukes).

Puttinggreenen på et hull omfatter hullet spilleren prøver å spille ballen ned i. Puttinggreenen er ett av de fem definerte områdene på banen. Puttinggreenene på alle andre hull (som spilleren ikke spiller for øyeblikket) er feil greener, og er en del av det generelle området.

Grensen til en puttinggreen er definert ut fra hvor man kan se at det spesielt preparerte området starter (slik som hvor gresset tydelig er klippet for å vise grensen), bortsett fra hvis Komiteen definerer grensen på en annen måte (slik som en linje eller prikker).

Hvis en dobbelgreen brukes for to forskjellige hull:

  • Hele det preparerte området med begge hullene anses som puttinggreenen ved spill av hvert hull.

Men Komiteen kan definere en grense som deler dobbelgreenen i to forskjellige puttinggreener, slik at når en spiller spiller ett av hullene, er delen av dobbelgreenen for det andre hullet, en feil green.

Generelt område

Området på banen som omfatter alle deler av banen unntatt de fire andre definerte områdene: (1) Utslagsområdet spilleren må spille fra ved start av hullet han eller hun spiller, (2) alle  straffeområder, (3) alle bunkere, og (4) puttinggreenen på hullet spilleren spiller.

Det generelle området inkluderer:

  • Alle utslagssteder på banen bortsett fra utslagsområdet, og
  • Alle feil greener.
Bunker

Et spesielt bearbeidet område med sand, som ofte er en fordypning hvor torv eller jord er fjernet.

Disse er ikke del av en bunker:

  • En bunkerleppe, vegg eller fronten på grensen til et bearbeidet område som består av jord, gress, stablet torv eller kunstige materialer.
  • Jord eller alt som gror eller er en fast naturgjenstand innenfor grensen til det bearbeidede området (slik som gress, busker eller trær).
  • Sand som er slått ut av eller er utenfor grensen til et bearbeidet område, og
  • Alle andre områder med sand på banen som ikke er innenfor grensen til et bearbeidet område (slik som ørken og andre naturlige områder med sand eller områder som noen ganger omtales som ødemark/waste area).

Bunkere er én av de fem definerte områdene på banen.

En komité kan definere et bearbeidet område med sand som en del av det generelle området (hvilket betyr at det ikke er en bunker) eller kan definere et ikke-bearbeidet område med sand som en bunker.

Når en bunker blir reparert og Komiteen definerer hele bunkeren som grunn under reparasjon, er den å anse som en del av det generelle området (hvilket betyr at den ikke er en bunker).

Ordet "sand" brukt i denne definisjonen og i regel 12 inkluderer alt materiale tilsvarende sand som brukes som bunkermateriale (slik som knuste skjell), så vel som jord blandet inn i sanden.

Straffeområde

Et område hvor fritak med ett straffeslag er tillatt hvis spillerens ball kommer til ro der.

Et straffeområde er:

  • Alle vann på banen (uansett merket eller ikke av Komiteen) inkludert hav, sjø, dam, elv, dike, åpen dreneringsgrøft eller annet åpent vannløp (selv om det ikke inneholder vann), og
  • Alle andre deler av banen definert av Komiteen som et straffeområde.

Et straffeområde er ett av de fem definerte områder på banen.

Det er to forskjellige typer straffeområde kjennetegnet av fargen de er merket med:

  • Gule straffeområder (merket med gule linjer eller gule staker) gir spilleren to muligheter for fritak (reglene 17.1d(1) og (2).
  • Røde straffeområder (merket med røde linjer eller røde staker) gir spilleren en ekstra sideveis mulighet for fritak (regel 17.1d (3)), i tillegg til de to mulighetene for gule straffeområder.

Hvis fargen på et straffeområde ikke er merket eller angitt av Komiteen, behandles det som et rødt straffeområde.

Grensen til et straffeområde strekker seg både opp fra grunnen og ned under grunnen:

  • Dette betyr at all grunn og alt annet (slik som alle naturlige eller kunstige gjenstander) innenfor grensen er del av straffeområdet, enten på, over eller under grunnens overflate.
  • Hvis en gjenstand er både innenfor og utenfor grensen (slik som en bro over et straffeområde, eller et tre rotfast innenfor grensen med greiner som brer seg utenfor grensen eller omvendt), er kun den delen av gjenstanden som er innenfor grensen del av straffeområdet.

Grensen til et straffeområde bør defineres med staker, linjer eller fysiske kjennetegn:

  • Staker: Når definert med staker, er grensen til straffeområdet definert av linjen mellom utsidepunktene av stakene på bakkenivå, og stakene er innenfor straffeområdet.
  • Linjer: Når definert med en malt linje på bakken, er grensen til straffeområdet utsidekanten av linjen, og linjen i seg selv er i straffeområdet.
  • Fysiske kjennetegn: Når definert med fysiske kjennetegn (slik som en strand eller ørkenområde eller en støttemur), bør Komiteen opplyse hvordan grensen til straffeområdet er definert.

Når grensen til et straffeområde er definert med linjer eller fysiske kjennetegn, kan staker bli brukt for å vise hvor straffeområdet er, men de har ingen annen betydning.

Når grensen til et vann ikke er definert av Komiteen, er grensen til det straffeområdet definert av dens naturlige grenser (som er hvor grunnen skråner ned og former fordypningen som kan inneholde vann).

Hvis et åpent vannløp vanligvis ikke inneholder vann (slik som en dreneringsgrøft eller avløp som er tørt bortsett fra når det regner mye), kan Komiteen definere dette området som del av det generelle området (som betyr at det ikke er et straffeområde).

Plassere tilbake

Å plassere en ball ved å legge den ned og slippe taket på den, med den hensikt at den er i spill.

Hvis spilleren legger en ball ned uten at hensikten er at den er i spill, har ballen ikke blitt plassert tilbake og er ikke i spill (se regel 14.4).

Alltid når en regel krever at en ball skal bli plassert tilbake, angir regelen et bestemt punkt hvor ballen må bli plassert tilbake.

 

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.

Puttinggreen

Området på hullet spilleren spiller som:

  • Er spesielt preparert for putting, eller
  • Komiteen har definert som puttinggreenen (slik som når en provisorisk green brukes).

Puttinggreenen på et hull omfatter hullet spilleren prøver å spille ballen ned i. Puttinggreenen er ett av de fem definerte områdene på banen. Puttinggreenene på alle andre hull (som spilleren ikke spiller for øyeblikket) er feil greener, og er en del av det generelle området.

Hvis en dobbelgreen brukes for to forskjellige hull:

  • Hele det preparerte området med begge hullene anses som puttinggreenen ved spill av hvert hull.

Men Komiteen kan definere en grense som deler dobbelgreenen i to forskjellige puttinggreener, slik at når en spiller spiller ett av hullene, er delen av dobbelgreenen for det andre hullet, en feil green.

Generelt område

Området på banen som omfatter alle deler av banen unntatt de fire andre definerte områdene: (1) Utslagsområdet spilleren må spille fra ved start av hullet han eller hun spiller, (2) alle  straffeområder, (3) alle bunkere, og (4) puttinggreenen på hullet spilleren spiller.

Et område hvor fritak med ett straffeslag er tillatt hvis spillerens ball kommer til ro der.

Et straffeområde er:

  • Alle vann på banen (uansett merket eller ikke av Komiteen) inkludert hav, sjø, dam, elv, dike, åpen dreneringsgrøft eller annet åpent vannløp (selv om det ikke inneholder vann), og

Det generelle området inkluderer:

  • Alle utslagssteder på banen bortsett fra utslagsområdet, og
  • Alle feil greener.
Kjent eller så godt som sikkert

Et fast uttrykk for å bestemme hva som skjedde med en spillers ball – for eksempel om ballen kom til ro i et straffeområde, hvorvidt den flyttet seg eller hva som forårsaket flyttingen.

Kjent eller så godt som sikkert betyr mer enn bare mulig eller trolig. Det betyr enten at:

  • Det er avgjørende bevis for at den aktuelle hendelsen skjedde med spillerens ball, for eksempel når spilleren eller andre vitner så det skje, eller
  • Selv om det er en meget liten grad av tvil, viser all rimelig tilgjengelig informasjon at det er minst 95 prosent sannsynlig at det skjedde.

"All rimelig tilgjengelig informasjon" inkluderer all informasjon spilleren har og all annen informasjon han eller hun kan få tak i med rimelige anstrengelser og uten unødvendig forsinkelse.

 

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/1 - Applying "Known or Virtually Certain" Standard When Ball Moves

When it is not "known" what caused the ball to move, all reasonably available information must be considered and the evidence must be evaluated to determine if it is "virtually certain" that the player, opponent or outside influence caused the ball to move.

Depending on the circumstances, reasonably available information may include, but is not limited to:

  • The effect of any actions taken near the ball (such as movement of loose impediments, practice swings, grounding club and taking a stance),
  • Time elapsed between such actions and the movement of the ball,
  • The lie of the ball before it moved (such as on a fairway, perched on longer grass, on a surface imperfection or on the putting green),
  • The conditions of the ground near the ball (such as the degree of slope or presence of surface irregularities, etc), and
  • Wind speed and direction, rain and other weather conditions.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/2 - Virtual Certainty Is Irrelevant if It Comes to Light After Three-Minute Search Expires

Determining whether there is knowledge or virtual certainty must be based on evidence known to the player at the time the three-minute search time expires.

Examples of when the player's later findings are irrelevant include when:

  • A player's tee shot comes to rest in an area containing heavy rough and a large animal hole. After a three-minute search, it is determined that it is not known or virtually certain that the ball is in the animal hole. As the player returns to the teeing area, the ball is found in the animal hole.
  • Even though the player has not yet put another ball in play, the player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b - What to Do When Ball is Lost or Out of Bounds) since it was not known or virtually certain that the ball was in the animal hole, when the search time expired.
  • A player cannot find his or her ball and believes it may have been picked up by a spectator (outside influence), but there is not enough evidence to be virtually certain of this. A short time after the three-minute search time expires, a spectator is found to have the player's ball.

The player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b) since the movement by the outside influence only became known after the search time expired.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/3 - Player Unaware Ball Played by Another Player

It must be known or virtually certain that a player's ball has been played by another player as a wrong ball to treat it as being moved.

For example, in stroke play, Player A and Player B hit their tee shots into the same general location. Player A finds a ball and plays it. Player B goes forward to look for his or her ball and cannot find it. After three minutes, Player B starts back to the tee to play another ball. On the way, Player B finds Player A's ball and knows then that Player A has played his or her ball in error.

Player A gets the general penalty for playing a wrong ball and must then play his or her own ball (Rule 6.3c). Player A's ball was not lost even though both players searched for more than three minutes because Player A did not start searching for his or her ball; the searching was for Player B's ball. Regarding Player B's ball, Player B's original ball was lost and he or she must put another ball in play under penalty of stroke and distance (Rule 18.2b), because it was not known or virtually certain when the three-minute search time expired that the ball had been played by another player.

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

 

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.

Fremmedelement

  • Ethvert dyr, og
  • Enhver naturlig eller kunstig gjenstand eller noe annet (inkludert en annen ball i bevegelse), unntatt naturkrefter.

 

Interpretation Outside Influence/1 - Status of Air and Water When Artificially Propelled

Although wind and water are natural forces and not outside influences, artificially propelled air and water are outside influences.

Examples include:

  • If a ball at rest on the putting green has not been lifted and replaced and is moved by air from a greenside fan, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).
  • If a ball at rest is moved by water coming from an irrigation system, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).

  • If a ball at rest is moved by water coming from an irrigation system, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).
Feil sted

Ethvert sted på banen bortsett fra der spilleren er pålagt eller tillatt å spille hans eller hennes ball etter reglene.

Eksempler på å spille fra feil sted er:

  • Spille en ball etter å ha plassert den tilbake på feil punkt eller uten å ha plassert den tilbake når påkrevd etter reglene.
  • Spille en droppet ball utenfor det pålagte fritaksområdet.
  • Ta fritak etter en feil regel slik at ballen blir droppet i og spilt fra et sted ikke tillatt etter reglene.
  • Spille en ball fra et spilleforbudområde eller når et spilleforbudområde påvirker spillerens område for planlagt slagstilling eller sving.

Å spille en ball fra et sted utenfor utslagsområdet ved start av spill på et hull eller forsøk på å korrigere den feilen, er ikke spill fra feil sted (se regel 6.1b).

Slag

Bevegelsen av køllen fremover for å slå til ballen.

Men et slag er ikke slått hvis spilleren:

  • Bestemmer seg i nedsvingen for ikke å slå ballen og unngår å gjøre dette ved å bevisst stoppe køllehodet før det når frem til ballen eller, hvis det ikke er mulig å stoppe, bevisst bommer på ballen.
  • Ved et uhell treffer ballen under en prøvesving eller under forberedelsene til å slå et slag.

Når reglene refererer til «spille en ball», betyr det det samme som å slå et slag.

Spillerens score på et hull eller en runde er beskrevet med antall «slag» eller «slag slått», som betyr både alle slag slått og alle straffeslag (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 ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

Bane

Hele området for spill innenfor alle banegrenser bestemt av Komitéen:

  • Alle områder innenfor grensen er inne på og en del av banen.
  • Alle områder utenfor grensen er utenfor banen og ikke en del av banen.
  • Grensen strekker seg både opp over bakken og ned under bakken.

Banen består av de fem definerte områdene på banen.

Interpretation Outside Influence/1 - Status of Air and Water When Artificially Propelled

Although wind and water are natural forces and not outside influences, artificially propelled air and water are outside influences.

Examples include:

  • If a ball at rest on the putting green has not been lifted and replaced and is moved by air from a greenside fan, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).
  • If a ball at rest is moved by water coming from an irrigation system, the ball must be replaced (Rule 9.6 and Rule 14.2).
Utenfor banen

Alle områder utenfor banens grenser som bestemt av Komiteen. Alle områder innenfor denne grensen, er inne på banen.

Grensen til banen strekker seg både opp fra grunnen og ned under grunnen:

  • Dette betyr at all grunn og alt annet (slik som alle naturlige eller kunstige gjenstander) innenfor grensen er inne på banen, enten på, over eller under grunnens overflate.
  • Hvis en gjenstand er både innenfor og utenfor grensen (slik som trinn festet til et grensegjerde, eller et tre rotfestet utenfor grensen med greiner som brer seg innenfor grensen eller omvendt), er kun delen av gjenstanden utenfor grensen, utenfor banen.

Grensen bør være definert av grensegjenstander eller linjer:

  • Grensegjenstander: Når definert med staker eller et gjerde er grensen bestemt av linjen mellom punktene på bane-siden av stakene eller gjerdestolpene på bakkenivå (bortsett fra skråstøtter), og disse stakene eller gjerdestolpene er utenfor banen.
    Når definert av andre gjenstander slik som en vegg eller når Komiteen ønsker å behandle et grensegjerde på en annen måte, bør Komiteen definere grensen.
  • Linjer: Når definert med en malt linje på bakken, er grensen på bane-siden av linjen, og linjen i seg selv er utenfor banen.
    Når en linje på bakken definerer grensen, kan staker bli benyttet for å vise hvor grensen er, men de har ingen annen betydning.

Grensestaker eller linjer bør være hvite.

Feil ball

Alle andre baller enn spillerens:

  • Ball i spill (enten den opprinnelige ballen eller en erstattet ball).
  • Provisorisk ball (før den er forlatt etter regel 18.3c), eller
  • Ball nummer to i slagspill spilt etter reglene 14.7b eller 20.1c.

Eksempler på en feil ball er:

  • En annen spillers ball i spill.
  • En etterlatt ball.
  • Spillerens egen ball som er utenfor banen, har blitt mistet eller har blitt løftet og ennå ikke er satt tilbake i spill.

 

Interpretation Wrong Ball/1 - Part of Wrong Ball Is Still Wrong Ball

If a player makes a stroke at part of a stray ball that he or she mistakenly thought was the ball in play, he or she has made a stroke at a wrong ball and Rule 6.3c applies.

Kjent eller så godt som sikkert

Et fast uttrykk for å bestemme hva som skjedde med en spillers ball – for eksempel om ballen kom til ro i et straffeområde, hvorvidt den flyttet seg eller hva som forårsaket flyttingen.

Kjent eller så godt som sikkert betyr mer enn bare mulig eller trolig. Det betyr enten at:

  • Det er avgjørende bevis for at den aktuelle hendelsen skjedde med spillerens ball, for eksempel når spilleren eller andre vitner så det skje, eller
  • Selv om det er en meget liten grad av tvil, viser all rimelig tilgjengelig informasjon at det er minst 95 prosent sannsynlig at det skjedde.

"All rimelig tilgjengelig informasjon" inkluderer all informasjon spilleren har og all annen informasjon han eller hun kan få tak i med rimelige anstrengelser og uten unødvendig forsinkelse.

 

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/1 - Applying "Known or Virtually Certain" Standard When Ball Moves

When it is not "known" what caused the ball to move, all reasonably available information must be considered and the evidence must be evaluated to determine if it is "virtually certain" that the player, opponent or outside influence caused the ball to move.

Depending on the circumstances, reasonably available information may include, but is not limited to:

  • The effect of any actions taken near the ball (such as movement of loose impediments, practice swings, grounding club and taking a stance),
  • Time elapsed between such actions and the movement of the ball,
  • The lie of the ball before it moved (such as on a fairway, perched on longer grass, on a surface imperfection or on the putting green),
  • The conditions of the ground near the ball (such as the degree of slope or presence of surface irregularities, etc), and
  • Wind speed and direction, rain and other weather conditions.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/2 - Virtual Certainty Is Irrelevant if It Comes to Light After Three-Minute Search Expires

Determining whether there is knowledge or virtual certainty must be based on evidence known to the player at the time the three-minute search time expires.

Examples of when the player's later findings are irrelevant include when:

  • A player's tee shot comes to rest in an area containing heavy rough and a large animal hole. After a three-minute search, it is determined that it is not known or virtually certain that the ball is in the animal hole. As the player returns to the teeing area, the ball is found in the animal hole.
  • Even though the player has not yet put another ball in play, the player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b - What to Do When Ball is Lost or Out of Bounds) since it was not known or virtually certain that the ball was in the animal hole, when the search time expired.
  • A player cannot find his or her ball and believes it may have been picked up by a spectator (outside influence), but there is not enough evidence to be virtually certain of this. A short time after the three-minute search time expires, a spectator is found to have the player's ball.

The player must take stroke-and-distance relief for a lost ball (Rule 18.2b) since the movement by the outside influence only became known after the search time expired.

Interpretation Known or Virtually Certain/3 - Player Unaware Ball Played by Another Player

It must be known or virtually certain that a player's ball has been played by another player as a wrong ball to treat it as being moved.

For example, in stroke play, Player A and Player B hit their tee shots into the same general location. Player A finds a ball and plays it. Player B goes forward to look for his or her ball and cannot find it. After three minutes, Player B starts back to the tee to play another ball. On the way, Player B finds Player A's ball and knows then that Player A has played his or her ball in error.

Player A gets the general penalty for playing a wrong ball and must then play his or her own ball (Rule 6.3c). Player A's ball was not lost even though both players searched for more than three minutes because Player A did not start searching for his or her ball; the searching was for Player B's ball. Regarding Player B's ball, Player B's original ball was lost and he or she must put another ball in play under penalty of stroke and distance (Rule 18.2b), because it was not known or virtually certain when the three-minute search time expired that the ball had been played by another player.

Feil ball

Alle andre baller enn spillerens:

  • Ball i spill (enten den opprinnelige ballen eller en erstattet ball).
  • Provisorisk ball (før den er forlatt etter regel 18.3c), eller
  • Ball nummer to i slagspill spilt etter reglene 14.7b eller 20.1c.

Eksempler på en feil ball er:

  • En annen spillers ball i spill.
  • En etterlatt ball.
  • Spillerens egen ball som er utenfor banen, har blitt mistet eller har blitt løftet og ennå ikke er satt tilbake i spill.

 

Interpretation Wrong Ball/1 - Part of Wrong Ball Is Still Wrong Ball

If a player makes a stroke at part of a stray ball that he or she mistakenly thought was the ball in play, he or she has made a stroke at a wrong ball and Rule 6.3c applies.

Matchspill

En spilleform hvor en spiller eller side spiller direkte mot en motspiller eller en motspiller side i en «spiller-mot-spiller» match med én eller flere runder:

  • En spiller eller side vinner et hull i matchen ved å avslutte hullet med færrest slag (inkludert slag slått og straffeslag), og
  • Matchen er vunnet når en spiller eller side leder over motspilleren eller motspiller siden med flere hull enn det gjenstår å spille.

Matchspill kan bli spilt som en singlematch (hvor én spiller spiller direkte mot én motspiller), en Three-Ball match eller en Foursome eller Four-Ball match mellom sider av to partnere.

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).

Dette gjelder uansett om ballen har beveget seg opp, ned eller sideveis i alle retninger bort fra sitt opprinnelige punkt.

Hvis ballen kun dirrer (noen ganger omtalt som å oscillere) og forblir på eller kommer tilbake til sitt opprinnelige punkt, har ballen ikke flyttet seg.

 

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.

Bane

Hele området for spill innenfor alle banegrenser bestemt av Komitéen:

  • Alle områder innenfor grensen er inne på og en del av banen.
  • Alle områder utenfor grensen er utenfor banen og ikke en del av banen.
  • Grensen strekker seg både opp over bakken og ned under bakken.

Banen består av de fem definerte områdene på banen.

Fremmedelement

Enhver av disse personene eller ting som kan påvirke hva som skjer med en spillers ball eller utstyr eller banen:

  • Enhver person (inkludert en annen spiller), unntatt spilleren eller hans eller hennes caddie eller spillerens partner eller motspiller eller noen av deres caddier.
  • Ethvert dyr, og
  • Enhver naturlig eller kunstig gjenstand eller noe annet (inkludert en annen ball i bevegelse), unntatt naturkrefter.

Motspiller

Personen en spiller konkurrerer mot i en match. Betegnelsen motspiller gjelder bare i matchspill.

Slag

Bevegelsen av køllen fremover for å slå til ballen.

Men et slag er ikke slått hvis spilleren:

  • Bestemmer seg i nedsvingen for ikke å slå ballen og unngår å gjøre dette ved å bevisst stoppe køllehodet før det når frem til ballen eller, hvis det ikke er mulig å stoppe, bevisst bommer på ballen.
  • Ved et uhell treffer ballen under en prøvesving eller under forberedelsene til å slå et slag.

Når reglene refererer til «spille en ball», betyr det det samme som å slå et slag.

Spillerens score på et hull eller en runde er beskrevet med antall «slag» eller «slag slått», som betyr både alle slag slått og alle straffeslag (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.
Motspiller

Personen en spiller konkurrerer mot i en match. Betegnelsen motspiller gjelder bare i matchspill.

Slag

Bevegelsen av køllen fremover for å slå til ballen.

Men et slag er ikke slått hvis spilleren:

  • Bestemmer seg i nedsvingen for ikke å slå ballen og unngår å gjøre dette ved å bevisst stoppe køllehodet før det når frem til ballen eller, hvis det ikke er mulig å stoppe, bevisst bommer på ballen.
  • Ved et uhell treffer ballen under en prøvesving eller under forberedelsene til å slå et slag.

Når reglene refererer til «spille en ball», betyr det det samme som å slå et slag.

Spillerens score på et hull eller en runde er beskrevet med antall «slag» eller «slag slått», som betyr både alle slag slått og alle straffeslag (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 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.

Slagspill

En spilleform hvor en spiller eller en side konkurrerer mot alle andre spillere eller sider i konkurransen.

I den vanlige formen for slagspill (se regel 3.3):

  • En spillers eller sides score for en runde er det totale antall slag (inkludert slag slått og alle straffeslag) for å hulle ut på hvert hull, og
  • Vinneren er spilleren eller siden som avslutter alle runder med totalt færrest antall slag.

Andre former for slagspill  med forskjellige scoremetoder er Stableford, Maksimum Score og Par/Bogey (se regel 21).

Alle former for slagspill  kan bli spilt enten i individuelle konkurranser (hver spiller konkurrerer på egenhånd) eller i konkurranser med sider med partnere (Foursome eller Four-Ball).

Flyttet

Når en ball i ro har forlatt sitt opprinnelige punkt og kommet til ro på alle andre punkter og dette kan bli sett med det blotte øye (uansett om noen faktisk ser den gjøre det).
