    Synopsis of rule changes

    I received this from my father in law so don't freak out if they are not 100% accurate, I just found these to be very interesting:

    Rule 18 Now 3 minutes to search not 5
    Rule 7 Ball Moved while searching - replace - no penalty
    Rule 16 Replace embedded ball anywhere - free drop
    Club length definition - longest club not putter
    Rule 14 Must drop from knee if not re-drop - no penalty
    Rule 13 Wrong green - cannot stand or stroke from the wrong green
    Rule 11 Ball hits player or equipment accidentally - no penalty
    Rule 10 Double hit - no penalty
    Rule 12 incidental touching sand but not on line of play - no penalty
    Rule 15 Touch loose impediments in hazards anywhere can be removed - no
    penalty
    But if ball moves it must be replaced and 1 stroke penalty
    Rule 19 Unplayable in a bunker - added relief drop ball behind bunker in
    line with ball and hole - 2 strokes
    Rule 17 Penalty areas red or yellow stakes are now penalty areas
    can ground club on ground or water
    Rule 13 Ball moves on the green after mark and place - must now be replaced
    Rule 13 Accidental movement - no penalty
    Rule 13 Repairing damage - all damage can be repaired
    Rule 10 Cannot lay club on ground to line up put
    Rule 10 Caddy cannot help putting line from behind
    Rule 13 Hitting the flag stick in the hole - no penalty
    Rule 13 Ball wedged between flag stick and hole is deemed holed if any
    part of ball is below lip

    Ball lost or out of bounds relief in the vicinity as far out as the
    fairway - 2 strokes
    May change balls when taking relief

    Except: An attended flagstick that the person deliberately failed to remove from the hole

    This isn't a rule change per se, but clubs can implement it as a local rule in certain locations (or all locations).
    Kinda like using a GPS or rangefinder. Not allowed, but clubs are allowed to have a local rule to allow them.

    And only if you don't hit a provisional. If you hit a provisional you can't take the relief described above even if there is a local rule.

    This has now been reversed. They are allowed unless a LR says otherwise.
