Did you Know?
Taking relief from immovable obstructions:
If a player’s ball comes to rest on or close to an immovable obstruction such as a sprinkler head and the lie, stance or area of intended swing is interfered with by this obstruction, the player is allowed to drop a ball within one club length of the nearest point of relief, providing it’s no closer to the hole than where the ball originally had come to rest.
The player should determine the nearest point of relief using the club he/she expects to play the next stoke with. Then they may use any club to measure the one club length area in which to drop the ball.
The nearest point of relief is the point where the ball will be played which is nearest to where the original ball lies, which is no closer to the hole and which, if the ball were so positioned, no interference would exist for the lie of the ball, the stance or the intended area of the swing.
