I think you and DiS are right.

My answer for the 2nd Q was based on a demo I remember watching by the rules guys at Woodhall Spa several years ago. Appears you can now avoid the penalty by putting the stake back.

You are right Nic (as in the other two were correct!)

Round 4 Answers

Question 1

In stroke play, a player plays a left-handed stroke with the back of the head of a right-handed club. What is the ruling?

A - The player gets two penalty strokes.
B - There is no penalty.
C - The player gets one penalty stroke.

Correct answer B

Explanation: The player must fairly strike at the ball with the head of the club (Rule 10.1a). Interpretation 10.1a/2 clarifies that in fairly striking a ball, any part of the clubhead may be used, including the toe, heel and back of the clubhead.


Question 2

In stroke play, a player removes a post defining out of bounds which interferes with his swing. What is the ruling?

A - There is no penalty whether or not he replaces the post.
B - The player gets two penalty strokes unless he replaces the post before making the stroke and eliminates the improvement by doing so.
C - The player gets two penalty strokes whether or not he replaces the post.

Correct answer B

Explanation: An out of bounds post is a boundary object which cannot be moved if it improves the conditions affecting the stroke for the player (Rule 8.1a(1)). However, as per Rule 8.1c, there is no penalty if, before making the next stroke, the player eliminates that improvement by restoring the original conditions as detailed by Rule 8.1c(1).
 

Question 3

A player is asked to lift his ball which lies just off the putting green as it is on her opponents line of play. He is allowed to clean the ball without penalty.

A - False
B – True

Correct answer A

Explanation: When a ball is lifted from a part of the course other than a putting green because it interferes with play, cleaning is not allowed (Rule 14.1c).
 

Question 4

Player B's ball was lying badly. B was deliberating what action to take when player A, his marker, said: "You have no shot at all. If I were you, I would declare the ball unplayable." What is the ruling?

A - As A's suggestion could have influenced B "in determining his play", it constituted advice and A is penalised two strokes.
B - A gave B information on the Rules and, hence, no penalty is incurred by either player. B is not penalised.
C - A is penalised two strokes for giving advice and, if B follows that advice, he too will incur a two stroke penalty

Correct answer A

Explanation: Such a comment is advice because it could have influenced the player in deciding how to play the hole. During a round, a player must not give advice to anyone in the competition playing on the course. See Rule 10.2a and Interpretation Advice.

Round 5 - The Answers

Question 1

A player who damages his putter in anger after the first hole, may continue to use the putter without penalty for the rest of the round.

A - True
B - False

Correct answer A

Explanation: If a conforming club is damaged during the round, a player may continue to make strokes with the damaged club for the rest of the round (Rule 4.1a).
 

Question 2

The fairway is part of the general area.

A - True
B - False

Correct answer A

Explanation: The general area covers the entire area of the course except for the teeing area, bunkers, penalty areas and the putting green.


Question 3

A player makes a stroke on the putting green with the flagstick in the hole. Her ball comes to rest against the flagstick with part of the ball below the surface of the putting green. The ball is considered holed.

A - True
B - False

Correct answer A

Explanation: If a ball comes to rest against the flagstick left in the hole, and any part of the ball is in the hole below the surface of the putting green, the ball is treated as holed. You do not have to move the flag and let the ball drop into the hole.
 

Question 4

A player is entitled to free relief when his ball is embedded in the rough.

A - True
B - False

Correct answer A

Explanation: Relief is available for a ball that is embedded in the general area (except when it is embedded in sand in the general area, or if interference by something other than the ball being embedded makes the stroke clearly unreasonable). Remember that the general area now covers the entire area of the course except for the teeing area, bunkers, penalty areas and the putting green.

Round 6 The Answers

Question 1

In a stroke-play competition, A, B and C were drawn by the Committee to play together starting at 9.00 am. A and B were present at the appointed time. C arrived at 9.02 am, after A and B had teed off, but just in time to play in the correct order. What is the ruling?

A - C gets a penalty of two strokes.
B - C is disqualified.
C - There is no penalty.

Correct answer A

Explanation: As C arrived and was ready to play within five minutes after his starting time, he gets a penalty of two strokes for failure to be ready to play at the start time established by the Committee (see Exception 1 to Rule 5.3a). If C had arrived more than five minutes after his starting time, the penalty would be disqualification.


Question 2

A strong gust of wind causes a players ball to move on the putting green before she has had a chance to mark, lift and replace the ball. The player must replace her ball on the original spot.

A - True
B – False

Correct answer B

Explanation: If natural forces (such as wind or water) cause the player's ball at rest to move, there is no penalty and the ball must be played from its new spot. There is an exception to this which states that if the ball on the putting green moves after it had already been lifted and replaced, the ball must be replaced on its original spot, however as the ball had not been lifted, that does not apply here (Rule 9.3).


Question 3

A player finds her ball by stepping on it in thick rough after searching for it for 2 minutes, causing it to move. What is the ruling?

A - There is no penalty and the player must drop the ball as near as possible to the estimated spot.
B - There is no penalty and the player must place the ball on the estimated spot. If the ball was under the growing grass it must be replaced under that grass.
C - The player gets a penalty of one stroke and must place the ball on the estimated spot. If the ball was under the growing grass it must be replaced under that grass.

Correct answer B

Explanation: There is no penalty if a player causes her ball to move while trying to find or identify it. If the ball is moved during the search, the ball must be replaced on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated) (Rule 7.4).
