Local Rule for relief from an embedded ball

Published: 19th November 2011

Through the green, a ball which is embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground, other than sand, may be lifted without penalty, cleaned and dropped as near as possible to where it lay but not nearer the hole. The ball when dropped must first strike a part of the course through the green (i.e. not in a water hazard or bunker).

Exception: A player may not obtain relief under this Local Rule if it is clearly unreasonable for him to play a stroke because of interference by anything other than the condition covered by this Local Rule.

Note: The grassed faces of bunkers are not part of the bunker.


Match play – Loss of hole; Stroke play – Two strokes.
