Rules School: Questions.

Below please find the 25 questions and answers to the Oswald Rules School.


Question 1 (Teeing area).
Your stroke from the teeing area is bad, and the ball heads towards some rough. You don’t want to search, but would like to go directly to the fairway and drop a ball with two penalty strokes, since your Club has a Local Rule about that.

Do you HAVE to search in three minutes before being allowed to proceed under this Local Rule… or can you proceed without having searched?

Answer: You don’t have to search. The Local Rule is in place to save time, so it is completely OK to proceed without having searched.
