Does the moving the ball one mean, if you stand on it when searching, there is or isn't a penalty?

No penalty.

Penalty if you purposely put equipment etc to stop your ball - so don’t leave the flagstick behind the hole on your line of putt

Dick is correct, however you will not find reference to this specific act in the simplified "players edition" of the rules. You need to reference the "full" rules booklet to find this act specifically documented.

Some pretty sensible changes. Especially the max score one. Will save a good bit of time on medal days.

Season 1 24.1 -> 16.8 1 medal
Season 2 16.8 -> 14.1 2 medals
Season 3 14.1 -> 12.5 Lanark Open
Season 4 12.5-12.6-12.3 2nd Bruce Sharp Trophy
Season 5 12.3-12.5 'Wasted Year'
Season 6 12.5-

Interesting to read that CONGU via England Golf have stated that if the new LR re lost ball drop where last crossed into hazard is invoked then any rounds will be non qualifying for handicap.

Thoughts?

Well that makes the new rule kinda pointless as you can do whatever you like in bounce games anyway.

Was wondering when this was going to be officially announced!!

Had heard murmurings that this was going to happen.

As Ally says... makes it a bit pointless.... certainly until the WHS comes in to operation when the authorities want as many rounds to count as possible...I can see that there might be some "realignment" in 2020!!!!
