2023规则主要变化

Specific Rules

Rule 1.3c(4)   Applying Penalties to Multiple Breaches of the Rules

The Rule has been amended so that determining whether breaches are related or unrelated is no longer part of its application, meaning that there will be fewer instances where multiple penalties will be applied.

Rule 3.3b(4)   Player Not Responsible for Showing Handicap on Scorecard or Adding Up Scores

The Rule has been amended so that a player is no longer required to show their handicap on their scorecard. The Committee is responsible for calculating the player’s handicap strokes for the competition and using that to calculate the player’s net score.

Rule 4.1a(2)   Use, Repair or Replacement of Club Damaged During Round

The Rule has been amended to allow a player to replace a damaged club, provided the club has not been damaged through abuse.

Rule 6.3b(3)   Substitution of Another Ball While Playing a Hole

The penalty for playing an incorrectly substituted ball has been reduced from the general penalty to one penalty stroke.

Rule 9.3   Ball Moved by Natural Forces

New Exception 2 provides that a ball must be replaced if it moves to another area of the course after being dropped, placed or replaced. This also applies if the ball comes to rest out of bounds.

Rule 10.2b   Other Help

Rule 10.2b has been rewritten for clarity and to incorporate the key principles of the Clarifications issued in April 2019 to support the 2019 Rule.

Rules 10.2b(1) and (2) have been amended to provide that neither the caddie nor any other person is allowed to set an object down to help the player with the line of play or other directional information (such as when the player cannot see the flagstick), and the player cannot avoid penalty by having the object removed before the stroke is made.

Rule 11.1b        Ball in Notion Accidentally Hits Person or Outside Influence: Place from Where Ball                          Must Be Played

Rule 11.1b has been rewritten for clarity.

Rule 11.1b(2) has been amended to provide that if a ball played from the putting green hits an insect, the player or the club used to make the stroke, the ball is played as it lies – the stroke is not replayed.

Rule 21.1C    Penalties in Stableford

The Rule is amended to provide that penalties in relation to clubs, time of starting and unreasonable delay will now be applied to the hole in the same way as regular stroke play. The same amendment is made to Rule 21.3c (Penalties in Par/ Bogey)

Rule 25      Modifications for Players with Disabilities

The introduction of new Rule 25 means that the modifications provided in the Rue apply to all competitions, including all forms of play.

 General Changes

Back-on-the-Line Relief Procedure

The back on the line relief procedure is amended to provide that the player is required to drop on the line. The spot on the line where the ball first touches the ground when dropped creates a relief area that is one club-length in any direction from that point. This amendment is reflected in changes to Rules 14.3b(3), 16.1c(2), 17.1d(2), 19.2b and 19.3, and the definition of relief area. any direction 17.1d(2), 19.2b and 19.3, and the definition of relief area.

How to Proceed When Stroke Must Be Replayed

Several Rules that used the phrase “stroke does not count” (such as Rule 11.1b) have been amended so that the failure to replay a stroke when required to do so, while still a breach of the relevant Rule, no longer carries the potential for disqualification.

游戏后面的“为什么”

Game of Honor and Integrity
诚实与正直的游戏

       在英文里面,高尔夫从来都是game,无论大师赛,还是朋友间的球聚,大家都将之称为“game“,这是一种诚实与正直的游戏,字面上并不归类到比赛(Competition)中,比起成绩,诚实和正直才是这个游戏至高无上的冠冕。

Violation of the Rules  
犯规

      高尔夫是一项迷人的游戏,它最能反映人生。

波比琼斯说过:

高尔夫这个游戏最接近我们称之为人生的那个游戏。
你打出好球,有时却得到坏的光景,
你打出坏球,有时却得到好的光景,
但你必须在球所在的位置打球。

Richard. S. Tufts-理查德 S 塔福斯也说:

Golf, like life itself, leads those who play it into many situations that appear to be unfair.

高尔夫,好比生活本身,将那些游戏玩家带到很多看上去不公平的状况之下。

      人生一路走来有很多情况,能够接受当下的逆境,不放弃并继续走下去才可以获得成功,正如高尔夫一样,接受球场现有的状况,在球所在的位置打球。

      因此高尔夫与其他运动不一样:

      比如篮球,故意犯规可能是一种比赛策略,但高尔夫不能以此为策略。球员几乎可以立刻发现,故意犯规不会得到任何高于比洞赛对手或比杆赛其他球员的利益,甚至连潜在的利益都不可能看到。(Rule1, Purpose of Rule)

      所以在高尔夫里面,故意犯规的情况十分罕见。

The Principle of penalty
处罚的原理

      没有人想招致处罚,但处罚还是如影随形,在这个游戏里无处不在。

      高尔夫里面有四种性质的处罚*:

1,来自打球结果本身导致的处罚:比如将球打到了界外。

2,来自球员无意间的行为导致的处罚:比如做击球准备时意外移动了球。

3,来自球员有意为之的行为结果导致的处罚:比如改善了球所在的位置。

4,来自没有遵循规则进行操作的处罚:比如未能以正确的方式抛球。

      由于绝大多数的球员不会故意犯规, “处罚”这个词在规则中并非表达 “惩罚”的意思,应该说表达“调整“的意思比较准确。

      如何通过处罚调整呢?原理就是:
处罚必须不小于球员因违反某一特定规则所获得的利益。

      即无论处罚来自上述四种的任何一种,无论什么情形,处罚的强度必须足以消除球员对通过犯规而获得利益的想法。换句话说就是:想都不用想。即便犯规不是故意的,球员也要将自己的成绩自觉地作出相应的调整。

      这就是为什么规则有这么多处罚的情况,且要球员自己施加给自己。

10. When We Do Wrong

Short Course R5 B9

Hole 10 

10. After hitting your tee shot toward a bunker, you find a ball in a poor lie in that bunker. Because you cannot tell if the ball is yours, you mark the spot of the ball and lift it. After seeing it is the same brand, model and number of the ball you are playing, you replace it in the same lie. You make a stroke at that ball and it comes to rest on the putting green. While you are raking the sand, you move another ball and realize it is your original ball you played from the tee. At this point, you call for a referee. What is the ruling in stroke play?

a. Your proceeded correctly and must continue with the ball you played from the bunker.

b. You have played a wrong ball and must correct your mistake by abandoning the ball played from the bunker and continue play with your original ball.

c. You were not allowed to substitute a ball. You get a total of two penalty strokes total for substituting a ball in a wrong place and must continue with the ball played from the bunker.

d. Your play of the substituted ball is treated as taking stroke-and-distance relief. In addition to that one-stroke penalty you get two additional penalty strokes for playing from a wrong place and may need to correct the wrong place if it’s considered a serious breach.

10.  将开球打向沙坑后,你在该沙坑内找到一个处于很差球位的球。因为你无法判断这是否是你的球,所以你在这个球的位置上做了标记,然后把它拿了起来。在看到它与你正在打的球品牌、型号和编号都相同后,你把它放回了原来的球位。你对那个球进行了击球,之后球静止在果岭上。当你耙沙的时候,你移动了另一个球,发现它才是你在发球台打出来的初始球。这时,你叫来了裁判。在比杆赛中的裁定是什么?

a. 你处理正确,必须以你从沙坑里打出来的球继续比赛。

b. 你打了一个错球,你必须纠正错误,放弃从沙坑打出的球,去继续打你的初始球。

c. 你在不允许替换球的情况下在错误的地方替换了球,总共得到两杆罚杆,必须用从沙坑打出 的球继续比赛。

d. 你所打的替换球将被视为(你在)采取一杆加距离的补救。除了一杆的处罚外,你从错误的地方打球还得到两杆的额外处罚,如果被认为是严重违规,你可能需要纠正错误。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:d

参考:后九的情况当然比前九复杂。注意错球与替换球的区别。在沙坑找到的第一个球是个错球,你拿在手上时它仍然只是个错球,但一旦你将它放置下去,它就转化成了替换球–(定义:替换球)。当这个替换发生的时候,你并不知道你的初始球在哪里,所以规则视为你在执行一杆加距离的操作(R18.1,19.2/5)。所以你在错误的地方进行了替换,继而在错误的地方击打了这个替换球,罚两杆(R14.7a)。如果tee台离这个沙坑有较大的距离,那么是严重违规需要改正(R14.7b(1))。 

Hole 11

11. After mishitting a short approach shot over the putting green and out of sight, you arrive at the back of the green and see a steep slope leading to a red penalty area that is adjacent to an area that is out of bounds. Other players have already started to search for your ball and, after briefly joining the search, and without knowledge or virtual certainty, you assume your ball is in the penalty area and inform the players in your group that you are going to take penalty area relief. Though you consider taking lateral relief, you quickly decide your best option is to go back and try the approach shot again. Based on the estimated point where you made your last stroke, you correctly drop a ball in the relief area. Before making a stroke, and before the end of the minutes search time, your original ball is found just outside the penalty area. What is the correct ruling? 

a. Your original ball is now a wrong ball and you must continue with the substituted ball.

b. Since your original ball was found before the end of the 3-minute search time, your original ball is in play and you must continue with that ball.

c. Since your original ball was found before the end of the 3-minute search time, you may choose to play either your original ball or the substituted ball.

11. 在打坏了一个上果岭的短切杆后,球飞向果岭后方且超出了你的视线。你来到果岭的后面,看到一个陡峭的斜坡通向一个红色罚杆区,这个罚杆区与界外区域相邻。其他球员已经开始搜索你的球,在短暂地加入搜索行列后,在不知道或不能几乎可以肯定的情况下,你假定你的球在罚杆区内,并通知同组球员你要采取罚杆区补救。虽然你想采取侧面补救,但你很快决定你最好的选择还是回去再切一次。你估计出上一次击球的点,正确地将球抛在了补救区内。击球前,你的初始球在搜索的三分钟结束前被发现在罚杆区以外。正确的裁定是什么?

a. 你的初始球现在是一个错误的球,你必须继续打替换球。

b. 由于你的初始球是在3分钟的搜索时间结束前找到的,你的初始球仍在比赛状态中,你必须用该球继续。

c. 由于你的初始球在3分钟的搜索时间结束前被发现,您可以选择打初始球或替换球。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:a

参考:在你采取补救之时你实在不知道你的球在哪里,不过你最终选择了一杆加距离的补救。R18.1 非常详细地解释了一杆加距离“总是”球员的一个补救选择,并且当你选择这一补救的相应后果是什么;以及避免不必要的罚杆损失的方法。本题的情况是采取18.1抛球后,你的初始球——无须知道它在哪里——就不再处于比赛状态且不能再打了。为避免初始球在三分钟结束前就出局,你可以宣布你抛下的这个是暂定球 R18.3b。

Hole 12

12.  Unbeknownst to you, a spectator tosses your original back onto the course after your tee shot came to rest out of bounds. You play your original ball from its new location onto the putting green and hole out. After you have started play of the next hole, the actions of the spectator are brought to your attention. What is the status of the ball when you played it from its new location?

a. Provisional ball
b. Wrong ball
c. Ball in play
d. Substituted ball

12.  你完全不知道你的开球出界后,一个观众将你的初始球扔回了球场。你在球所处的新位置上将你的初始球打上了果岭并完成了该洞。你开始了下一洞的比赛后,观众刚才的行为才引起了你的注意。(所以)当你在那个新位置上打球时,球的状态是什么?

a. 暂定球
b. 错球
c. 比赛状态球
d. 替换球

Correct Answer / 正确答案:b

参考:定义:比赛状态。不在比赛状态的球是错球,球员是否知情并不影响球的状态属性, 9.6/3,9.6/4。前面练习区说过对错球的击打不计入成绩,但是本题的情况是一个很少见的例外。

Hole 13

13. On a long par 4, you hook your tee shot into a large area of rocks to the left of the hole. You play a provisional ball that comes to rest on the right side of the fairway the same distance from the hole as where you estimate your original ball to be. Although spectators are already looking in the rocks for your original ball, you choose not to search for it, believing you won’t be able to play it from the rocks and that stroke-and-distance relief is your only good option. You ask the spectators to stop looking and declare the ball lost. You then make a stroke at your provisional ball and it comes to rest on the green, close to the hole. After having marked the spot of and lifted your provisional ball from the putting green, you hear that a spectator found your original ball in a terrible lie amongst the rocks after having searched for about 10 minutes. Which one of the following statements is true?

a. Once you declared your original ball lost, the fact that someone found it is irrelevant. You must continue with the provisional ball.

b. Your original could no longer be played when you played another stroke with the provisional ball from at or nearer to the hole than where the original ball was estimated to be, so your provisional ball is in in play.

c. Since your original was found in an unplayable position, you can declare it unplayable and continue with your provisional ball under penalty of stroke and distance.

d. You must abandon your provisional ball and proceed with your original ball. If it is unplayable, your best option might be to return to the tee to make your third stroke.

13. 在一个长4杆洞中,你的开球打进了该洞左边的一大片岩石中。你打了一个暂定球,静止在球道的右侧,与你估计初始球所在的位置距离相同。虽然观众已经在岩石中寻找你的初始球,但你选择不去找球,因为你认为你无法从岩石中将球打出来,只有一杆加距离是你唯一的好选择。你要求观众停止寻找,并宣布该球丢失。然后你击打了暂定球,球静止在果岭上,离洞口很近。你在果岭上标定你暂定球的位置并将其拿起后,你听说一位观众在寻找了大约10分钟后在岩石中发现了你初始球。以下哪项陈述是正确的?

a. 一旦你宣布你的初始球遗失,有人找到它的事实就不重要了。你必须继续打暂定球。

b. 当在初始球估计位置或比这位置更近洞口处对暂定球进行再次击打后,你的初始球就不能再打了,所以你的暂定球进入了比赛状态。

c. 由于你的初始球被发现处在一个不可打的位置,你可以宣布它不可打,并在一杆加距离的处罚下继续打你的暂定球。

d. 你必须放弃你的暂定球并继续使用你的初始球。如果球是不可打的,你最好的选择可能是返回发球台打第三杆。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:d

参考:第一,前面说过只有一种方式令球遗失,而“宣布”并不是这种有效的方式,无法令你的球“遗失”,你的球还在比赛状态中。其次,你没有在比初始球估计位置更靠近球洞的地方再次击球,也就是没有触发暂定球进入比赛状态的机制,暂定球还是暂定球。最后,10分钟看似已经超出了规定的三分钟,但问题是你从未开始搜索(你选择不找球),无论观众搜索了多久,你的三分钟从未开始,因而从未结束(定义:遗失~这里只有为数很少的人可以令三分钟计时开始),你的初始球还是处在比赛状态中。

Hole 14

14. Your tee shot heads toward a wooded area. Believing it might be lost outside a penalty area, you play a provisional ball to the fairway and then find your original ball in a red penalty area. The provisional ball is farther from the hole than the original. Which one of the following is false?

a. The provisional ball must be abandoned.

b. You may return to the tee to play under stroke and distance.

c. You may play another stroke with the provisional ball because it is farther from the hole than the original.

d. The provisional ball is a wrong ball.

14. 你的开球飞向了一片树林,你觉得球可能会在罚杆区之外遗失于是你打了一个暂定球到球道上,之后你在红色罚杆区发现了你的初始球。你的暂定球比你的初始球离球洞更远,以下哪一项是错误的?

a. 必须放弃暂定球。

b. 你可以回到发球台执行一杆加距离继续比赛。

c. 你可以对你的暂定球再进行另一次击球,因为它比你的初始球离洞口更远。

d. 暂定球成为一个错球。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:c

参考:一旦你的初始球在开始搜索的三分钟内被发现在球场内,你的暂定球立刻转化成一个错球R6.3c,因此你必须马上放弃暂定球 R18.3c(3)。所以如果你再击打这个暂定球你就是打了一个错球。之后如何继续你的比赛是基于你的初始球位于红色罚杆区这一事实来决定的 18.3c(3)

Hole 15

15. In stroke play, another player has set down her ball on the putting green just behind her ball-marker to help her read her putt. With her ball still at rest on the green in that location, you putt from the putting green and your ball hits it, deflecting your ball into the hole. What is the ruling?

a. No penalty to either player and your ball is holed.

b. No penalty to either player. Your stroke does not count and your original ball or another ball must be replaced on its original spot.

c. You get two penalty strokes and your ball is holed.

d. You get two penalty strokes. Your stroke does not count and your original ball or another ball must be replaced on its original spot.

15. 在比杆赛中,另一位球员在果岭上将她的球放在她的球标后面以便她看线。当她的球仍然静止在果岭上那个位置时,你从果岭推杆,你的球击了中它,之后变进了洞。裁定是什么?

a. 那两位球员都没有处罚,你的球进洞了。

b. 那两位球员都没有处罚。你的击球不算,你必须将你的初始球或另一个球放置回原位。

c. 你罚两杆,你的进洞了。

d. 你罚两杆。你的击球不算,你必须将你的初始球或另一个球放置回原位。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:b

参考:首先想想一个放在球标后方以帮助看线的球是什么状态?(定义:比赛状态)没错,它是一个错球。但是再想想它还有什么规则方面的状态属性?它是球员装备;它是可移动妨碍物。它的位置在果岭上,R11.1b例外2适用。

Hole 16

16. Your tee shot heads toward a wooded area and you play a provisional ball. Unknown to you, your partner’s caddie – who was walking ahead of you, your partner, and your caddie – started searching for your original ball about two minutes before the three of you arrived. Just as you begin to search, play is suspended. You search for 2 more minutes and find your original ball in a playable position in the general area about 10 yards from your provisional ball that is in a similar playable position. You mark the spot of and lift the original ball and then pick up your provisional without marking its spot. When play resumes, you place a new ball on the spot from which your original was lifted and play from there. How many total penalty strokes do you get in stroke play, if any?  

16.你的开球飞向一片树林,你打了一个暂定球。你并不知道你伙伴的球童走在你、你的伙伴和你的球童前面在你们三人到达之前大约两分钟已经开始寻找你的初始球。就在你开始寻找时,比赛暂停了。你还是继续搜寻了2分钟,发现你的初始球在普通区一个可打的位置,离你的暂定球大概有10码远。你的暂定球同样处于一个可打的球位,跟你的初始球差不多。你标记并拿起了你的初始球,然后没有标记你的暂定球就拿起了它。当比赛恢复时,你将一个新的球放在你的初始球的位置上,然后从那里继续比赛。你在比杆赛中总共得到多少罚杆,如果有的话? 

a. 0
b. 1 
c. 2 
d. 3 

Correct Answer / 正确答案:d 

参考:可以按下三分钟开始键的人都在“遗失”的定义里,你伙伴的球童是其中一个。比赛暂停的时候,你并没有按下三分钟的暂停键而是继续寻找直至三分钟结束,所以你的初始球遗失了 18.2a(1)/1,之后你的暂定球马上转化为你的比赛状态球。没有标记就拿起了你的比赛状态球罚一杆14.1a,但你最终在错误的地方打了球导致你得到一共两杆的罚杆【 1.3c(4)2+1=2】。还有不要忘记暂定球是一杆加距离的处罚,因此总计是3杆罚杆。 

Hole 17

17. After a thinned second shot, you mark and lift your ball (Ball A) in the rough to see if it is cut or cracked. There is a scuff mark on the ball, so you conclude that you are allowed to substitute. You replace Ball B on the spot and play it onto the putting green. Another player asks you what you did, and you show him the scuffed ball. The other player tells you that you were not allowed to substitute balls, so you lift Ball B from the putting green, replace Ball A on that spot and hole out. What is the ruling? 

a. There is no penalty. 

b. In match play you lose the hole, and in stroke play you get a total penalty of two strokes. 

c. In match play you lose the hole, and in stroke play you get a total penalty of four strokes. 

d. In match play you lose the hole, and in stroke play you are disqualified. 

17. 你第二杆打薄了,你在长草区标记并拿起了你的球(A球),想看它是否被切开或有裂痕。球上有一个擦伤的痕迹,所以你得出结论,你可以替换一个球。你把B球放置回原位,并将其打到果岭上。另一位选手问你做了什么,你给他看了擦伤的球。那位球手告诉你,你不允许替换球,所以你从果岭上拿起B球,将A球放置回那个位置上并完成了该洞。裁定是什么?

a. 没有处罚。 

b. 比洞赛中你输掉了该洞,比杆赛中你总共要罚两杆。 

c. 比洞赛中你输掉了该洞,比杆赛中你总共要罚四杆。 

d. 比洞赛中你输掉了该洞,比杆赛中你被取消资格。  

Correct Answer / 正确答案:c 

参考:首先仅有擦痕的球不允许替换 4.2c(2),在不允许替换的情况下替换,你的替换球成为你的比赛状态球(定义:替换)对之进行击打后得到一般性处罚6.3b。同理,果岭上的行为同样得到另一个一般性处罚。我们之前说过,就替换的行为本身不存在纠正的操作。 

Hole 18

18. You hit your second shot into a red penalty area and after a brief search, you estimate the point that the ball last crossed the edge of the penalty area and drop a ball under the lateral relief option. After dropping the ball in the right way and it coming to rest in the relief area, and before the 3 minute-search time is up, you see your original ball ten yards ahead in the penalty area and realize the ball must have last crossed the edge of the penalty area closer to where the original ball was found. Which one of the following is true? 

a. Because the original ball was found before the 3 minute-search time is up, you have the option to play the original ball as it lies or take penalty area relief. 

b. You must continue with the ball you substituted to take penalty area relief, getting only one penalty stroke for relief. 

c. You must abandon the substituted ball and continue with the original ball in the penalty area. 

d. You must continue with relief from the penalty area, but must drop a ball again to take relief based on the location of the original ball. In doing so, you may use any penalty area relief option. 

18. 你的第二杆打进了红色罚杆区,经过短暂的搜索,你估计出球最后越过罚杆区边界的位置,并采取侧面补救抛了一个球。在以正确的方式抛球后,球静止在补救区内,但在3分钟搜索时间结束前,你在罚杆区内往前10码的地方看到了你的初始球,并意识到球最后越过罚杆区边界的位置应该更靠近初始球被发现的地方。以下哪一项是正确的?

a. 因为初始球在3分钟搜索时间结束前被发现,所以你可以选择在初始球现有的位置打球,或者采取罚杆区补救。 

b. 你必须用采取罚杆区补救后的那个替换球继续比赛,只罚采取补救的一杆。 

c. 你必须放弃那个替换球,用罚杆区内的初始球继续比赛。 

d. 你必须继续采取罚杆区补救,但必须根据初始球的位置再次抛球补救。在这样做的时候,你可以使用任何罚杆区的补救选项。 

Correct Answer / 正确答案:d 

参考:确认球在罚杆区内球员采取罚杆区补救是符合规则的参考点根据当时的情况合理判断来确定的,一切都没有问题。抛球后出现了新的线索,证明之前的参考点有误差,此时球员必须修正之前的错误或误差14.5a。球员再执行补救时可以选取规则17.1d的任何一个选项 17.1d(3)/2。 

Short Course R5 F9

Practice Area

      本轮将讨论所有关于球的状态。球的状态是一个在整轮以及你打的每个洞中不断变化的东西。对于那些刚开始规则之旅的人来说,你可能还没有意识到你在每个洞的行动是多么频繁地改变着球的状态。我们在学习中常说,反复接触同一题材是将该题材放入你长期记忆的最佳方式之一。在高尔夫规则中,没有比球的状态需要更多反复接触的例子了。所以这是一个你可能还没有完全(理解)到位的专题,要知道,你很可能需要多花一些时间来研究这些不同的定义和专题才能完全理解它。

      当我们开始看这个专题的时候,请将这里看到的规则6.3目的声明中的原则记住。正如我们所知,高尔夫比赛是通过一系列的洞,每洞都从发球区开始,到果岭上推球入洞结束,是一个递进的过程。

      开球后,你通常需要打同一个球,直到完成该洞。如果你打错了球,或者在规则不允许的情况下替换了一个球,你就会被罚。稍后,我们将看到一个错球是多么容易变成一个替换球,而替换球又是多么容易变成一个错球的。

       规则承认一个球有四种可能的状态,每一种状态在高尔夫规则中都有各自的定义。我强烈建议你在开始这轮测验之前花一些时间看看这些定义,并确保你手边就有这些定义,在你做每道题的时候经常参考它们。

      我们可以先把这四种状态分为两类:首先我们有处于比赛状态的球;然后是不处于比赛状态的球。

      知道球是否处于比赛中状态如此重要的原因是:球必须处于比赛状态中才能将该球的击球杆数计入你的成绩。如果你在一个不处于比赛状态的球上进行了击球,那一杆就不能计入你的成绩。在这里,我们将开始看到一个球可以在这四种不同状态之间快速转换。

      替换球是指被用来替换初始球而进入比赛状态的球。这里有个例子:假设你采取球车道-异常球场状况补救,你抛球时使用了另一个球,你刚刚抛落的那个球完成了替换,现在成为你的比赛状态中球。在这个替换球上击打的任何杆数都将计入你的成绩。而且一旦你用这个球替换了初始球,初始球现在就变成了一个错球,它不再处于比赛状态,即便你在它上面进行了击球也不会计入你的成绩。

      比赛状态球也有可能变成一个错球, 比如球出了界。一旦球出了界,它就不再处于比赛状态了,在那个球上的任何击球都不能计入你的成绩。

      (规则里面)只有一种情况会使你的球遗失,那就是在你开始搜索的三分钟内没有找到它。如果你的球在三分零五秒时被找到,那么这个球现在已经遗失了,此时在这个球上的任何击球实际上都是在一个错球上进行的。在比赛状态(in play)的定义中我们看到,不在比赛状态的球是一个错球。这意味着除了你比赛状态中球之外,世界上其他所有的球都是错球。

      让我们来思考一下你在整轮中一个非常频繁的动作:在果岭上拿起你的球。一旦你拿起这个比赛状态中球,它就不再处于比赛状态了,这意味着它已经转化成了一个错球。每一次你拿起你的比赛状态球,它都会变成一个错球。让它回到比赛状态中的方法是把它放回去。一旦你把那个拿起的球放回原位,它现在就回到了比赛状态中。假如现在你在它上面进行击球就会计入你的成绩。

       我们在这里开始看到球在这些不同的项目之间移动的频率,以及再次看到击球何时计入你的成绩和何时不计入的区别,重点是要认识到你打到的那个球正处于什么状态。

      因此,在你对这些状态记忆犹新的情况下,在你开始前往本轮测验的第一洞tee台之前,花些时间看看这些定义,祝你在Round 5比赛中好运。 

Hole 1

3. In stroke play, your first shot from the teeing area hits a tree and ricochets back into the teeing area. You lift the ball, substitute another ball, place it in a different location in the teeing area and play it to the fairway, then hole out in 3 more strokes. What is your score for the hole?

3. 在比杆赛中,你从发球区打出的第一杆打在树上,弹回发球区。你拿起球,用另一个球代替,把它放在发球区的另一个位置,打到球道上,然后再用3杆完成该洞。你这个洞的成绩是多少杆?

a. 5
b. 6
c. 7
d. 8

Correct Answer / 正确答案: a

参考: 发球区是一个非常有“特权”的区域,因为特权太多需要仔细阅读。R6.2b(6)

Hole 4

4. Which one of the following is true?

a. If you make a stroke at a ball you substituted when not allowed, there is no penalty if you correct your mistake by playing the correct ball before starting another hole.

b. When taking relief under a Rule that does not allow substitution, if you substitute a ball and play it, you have played a wrong ball and must correct your error.

c. If you drop a ball in the wrong way with the intent for it to be in play, the dropped ball is in play.

d. If you drop a ball only to test how far the ball will roll when dropped, and the ball ends up in the proper relief area, you may play the ball without penalty.

4. 以下哪项是正确的?

a. 如果你在不允许替换的情况下对你的替换球进行了击球,然后在另一洞开始之前回去打正确的球来纠正你的错误,你不会被罚。

b. 当根据不允许替换的规则进行补救时,如果你替换了一个球并打了它,你就打了错球,你必须纠正错误。

c. 如果你以错误的方式抛下一个球,且你的意图是让它进入比赛状态,那么这个抛下的球就是比赛状态球。

d. 如果你抛球只是为了测试球在落下时能滚多远,而球最终停在正确的补救区,你可以打该球而不受罚。

Correct Answer / 正确答案: c

参考解释:定义- 替换,比赛状态。选项a、b: 当提到“替换球”的时候,不存在纠正的问题。d: 测试抛球- 因为没有让球进入比赛状态的意图(intention),因此抛下的球没有进入比赛状态【14.4/2】。没有进入比赛状态的球是一个错球,【定义-比赛状态 In play】。

Hole 5

5. Which one of the following is not your ball in play?

a. A ball that you dropped under the penalty area Rule when it was not known or virtually certain that your ball was in the penalty area.

b. Your ball on the putting green that your caddie set behind your ball-marker only so you could more easily read the line.

c. The ball that you made a stroke at and missed on the tee.

5. 以下哪项不是你的比赛状态球?

a. 在未能知道或几乎肯定你的球在罚杆区内时,你采用罚杆区规则抛下的球。

b. 你的球在果岭上,你的球童把它放在你的球标后面,只是为了让你更容易看线。

c. 你在发球区打了一杆而没有打到的球。

Correct Answer / 正确答案: b

参考解释:定义- 比赛状态,替换(留意最后一句,说的就是a的情况);R6.3b。

Hole 6

6. On the 6th hole, you mark the spot of and lift your ball (Ball A) on the putting green. When it is your turn to play, you accidentally replace a different ball (Ball B) and hole out. Before making a stroke to begin play of the 7th hole, you realize you holed out with Ball B instead of Ball A. Which one of the following is true in stroke play?

a. You may substitute a ball at any time on the putting green, so there is no penalty.

b. You get two penalty strokes on the 6th hole and may tee off on the 7th hole with either ball.

c. You get two penalty strokes on the 6th hole and must correct the mistake by returning to the 6th green to play out the hole with Ball A.

d. If you make a stroke from the 7th tee without correcting your mistake, you are disqualified.

6. 你在第六洞果岭上标记并拿起了你的球(A球)。当轮到你打球时,你不小心放置了另一个不同的球(B球)并推球进洞了。在开始打第7洞之前,你发现刚才是用了B球而不是A球完成上一洞的。在比杆赛中,以下哪一个是正确的?

a. 你可以在果岭上随时替换一个球,因此没有处罚。

b. 你在第6洞罚两杆,可以在第7洞用任意一个球开球。

c. 你在第6洞罚两杆,必须纠正错误,回到第6洞果岭用A球完成该洞。

d. 如果你在第7洞开球时没有改正错误,你将被取消资格。

Hole 7

7. On the 11th hole, your ball lies on a paved path in the general area. You lift the ball (Ball A) and drop a different ball (Ball B) in the relief area, play it from the relief area, hole out, and make a stroke to begin play of the 12th hole. What is the ruling?

a. There is no penalty.

b. In match play you lose the 11th hole, and in stroke play you get two penalty strokes on the 11th hole.

c. In match play you lose the 11th hole, and in stroke play you are disqualified.

d. You are disqualified in both match play and stroke play.

7. 在第11洞,你的球静止在普通区一条铺设好的路上。你拿起球(A球),将另一个球(B球)抛在补救区内,然后从补救区内把球打了出去并完成了该洞,接着在第12洞打出一杆开始了该洞。判定是什么?

a. 没有处罚。

b. 在比洞赛中,你输掉了第11洞,而在比杆赛中,你在第11洞被罚两杆。

c. 在比洞赛中,你输掉了第11洞,而在比杆赛中你被取消资格。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:a

参考:非常幸运,这里没有人被DQ。2019规则中,只要你是根据规则采取补救,你都可以替换球R6.3b(1)。你不一定要用路上的那个球,你可以随便从球包中拿任何一个球出来抛球。

Hole 8

8. In which one of the following do you get a penalty for playing a wrong ball?

a. You lift a stray ball to identify it, and thinking it is yours, replace it and play the ball.

b. You drop a new ball in place of your original ball when taking relief from a cart path.

c. You play a stray ball from a bunker.

d. You play a stray ball that is moving in temporary water.

8. 以下哪一项你会因为打错球而被罚?

a. 你拿起一个不明来历的球来辨认,并认为它是你的,把球放回去之后你打了该球。

b. 你从球车道上抛下一个新球来代替你的原球。

c. 你从沙坑中打出一个不明来历的球。

d. 你打了一个在临时积水中移动的不明来历的球。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:c

参考:题目问的是错球,我们在第二洞说过: *记住:错球从不离地,被放置或是抛下去的球不是错球而是替换球。那么答案就在c和d之间了。答案d涉及一个球在临时积水中移动的情况,规则6.3c(1)的例外特别指出这个情况下没有处罚。

Hole 9

9. In which one of the following situations is your original ball “lost”?

a. You substitute a ball for your original ball that is known to be in a penalty area, and don’t search for it.

b. You make your second stroke at a provisional ball from a point farther from the hole than where your original ball is estimated to be.

c. You’ve searched for 2 minutes without finding your original ball, so you stop searching and as you are returning to where you made your previous stroke to play a provisional ball, someone else finds it 2 minutes later.

d. You make a stroke at your provisional ball from a point nearer the hole than where your original ball is estimated to be.

9. 在以下哪种情况下,你的初始球会 “遗失”?

a. 你的初始球已确知在罚杆区内,你没有去寻找它,你用另一个球代替了它。

b. 你在比初始球所在的大概位置离球洞更远的地方对一个暂定球进行了第二击。

c. 你找了2分钟都没有找到你的初始球,于是你停止了寻找,当你正在回去上一次击球的地方准备打暂定球时,别人在2分钟后找到了你的球。

d. 你在比初始球所在的大概位置离洞口更近的地方对你的暂定球作了一次击球。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:c

参考:2019规则中,只有一种方式令你的初始球“遗失”(见定义),关键那个三分钟!上述选项中涉及时间的只有c。找球这三分钟的计时有时候会被中断——如果有符合定义描述的“好理由-good reason”的话。回去打暂定球不属于可以中断的情况,所以球员只是停止了寻找,但计时没有停止。球员的初始球没能在三分钟内找到,因此“遗失”了。

Living in Between

      从三藩市回丹佛的飞机上,邻座是一位中年白人女子。我与她搭讪,两句之后她问我:“Do You Speak Chinese?”然后我们就开始用双语交谈了。她是台湾媳妇,在屏东、台北等地住了20年。我们交流了很多内容,彼此有很多的同感。

        我们说青菜:
        对于新鲜青菜的定义原来屏东和广州人都很相似,地里当天采摘后放在市场里卖的叫新鲜蔬菜,绝对不是超市冷柜里不时被喷水的那一类。还有鱼,鲜鱼!美国的 Fresh Fish是指没有冰到硬邦邦但低温保存的死鱼。我们指的是还在游泳的鱼。她说美国的“新鲜”罗非鱼( Tilapia)真是太难吃了——我点头如捣蒜,极度同意。

        我们谈孩子的语言与身份认同感:
        她有四个孩子,生在台湾长在台湾,混血的外貌,因为她丈夫是台湾人。孩子既不像白人也不像中国人,in between。她最小的女儿不太会讲英语,“所以长着一副外国人面孔而不会讲英文在台湾会有些奇怪,但还好。重点是回到美国加州上学的时候,同学竟然跟她讲西班牙文。她一个字也听不懂,然后西班牙裔的同学说她“装清高。” 我陪她叹气,安慰说:美国出生的中国孩子也不是个个会讲中文。她问我的孩子怎么样,还好我儿子中文没丢,英文很快赶上来了,只是在生活、文化的某些方面不容易兼容,需要更多的思考。

        我们谈是怎样学习一种新语言的:
        她说她是看电视,看一出A Buddhist, A Monkey and A pig的连续剧。我接上说:“那叫西游记。”——“对对对!你是怎样学的呢?”其实我也说不上来,或许是听NPR(全国公共广播电台)吧。

        我们谈到有一种感觉,非常有共鸣,而且我们都承认多年以来,在我们这次的谈话中首次找到这种共鸣:
        我们和家乡朋友的共同话题越来越少,因为我们都离开了原来的生活,与朋友们的生活脱了节。同时我们在住地也很难找到非常有共同语言的朋友,因为他们对我们的原籍知之甚少。我们都感觉自己游离在两种文化和两种生活方式中间,看着双方面对对方文化的误解或不解,却无从解释,只能用包容的态度远观。

         在那两个多小时的航程里,我们确实视彼此为知音了,舍不得沉默片刻。

        然而飞机降落,我俩各奔他方,道一句再见,连彼此的名字都忘却在凡尘里,从此不复相见。

        我们继续赶路,继续Living In Between。

Short Course R4 B9

Hole 10 

10. You make a stroke from the 10thtee and return to the half-way house to grab a couple of to-go lunches for you and your partner who are playing in a Four-Ball stroke-play competition. Your partner finds your ball in a red penalty area, and because your group is slightly behind pace, he decides to take lateral relief for you under Rule 17.1b. He determines your relief area by using his driver that happens to be a couple of inches longer than yours. To ensure the ball is dropped as far from the penalty area as possible, he drops a ball in the right way, at the outer edge of the relief area. The ball bounces out of the relief area but then rolls and comes to rest back in the relief area. He proceeds to the other side of the fairway and as you arrive at your ball, he makes his stroke to the green. Being completely unaware of what has transpired, you play your ball as it lies and it comes to rest on the green. Which one of the following is true?  

a. Neither you nor your partner gets a penalty. 

b. You get one penalty stroke; your partner gets no penalty.  

c. You and your partner each get one penalty stroke. 

d. You get two penalty strokes; your partner gets no penalty.

Hole 11

11.

d. 你罚两杆,必须再次抛球。

 Correct Answer / 正确答案:d 

Hole 12 

12. In stroke play, you decide to take relief because your tee shot came to rest in ground under repair near the course boundary. The ground under repair is defined by green stakes and out of bounds is defined by a white line on the ground. You correctly determine your relief area, which is between the ground under repair and the course boundary, and drop a ball into it. The dropped ball comes to rest within one club-length of the reference point, not nearer the hole and free from interference by the ground under repair, but it is also resting on the white line and part of your ball is out of bounds. Thinking your ball has come to rest outside the relief area, you lift your ball and drop it a second time in a different part of the relief area. This time it rolls toward the ground under repair and comes to rest touching one of the green stakes. Again thinking your ball has come to rest outside the relief area, you then place your ball on the spot where it first touched the course on the second drop, play your next stroke to the green, and hole out after two putts. What is your score for the hole?    

12. 在比杆赛中,因为你的开球静止在球场边界附近的修理地内,因此你决定采取补救。修理地由绿桩界定,界外则由地面上的白线界定。你正确地确定了你的补救区是在修理地和球场边界之间,并将球抛在该区域内。落下的球停在参考点的一杆范围内,不更靠近球洞,并且不受修理地的干扰,但是它也停在白线上,且球的一部分在界外。你认为你的球停在了补救区之外,你拿起你的球,在补救区内的另一个地方第二次抛下。这一次,它向着修理地滚去,并挨着一根绿桩停下了。你再次认为你的球停在了补救区之外,然后将你的球放置在第二次落下时首次触地的点上,你打了一杆(将球送)上果岭,并用两推完成该洞。你在这个洞的成绩是多少?

a.
b. 5
c.  
d. 7  

Correct Answer / 正确答案:c 

Hole 13

13.  In stroke play, with Model Local Rule E-12 in effect, your ball is in an animal hole in a bunker and you decide to take back-on-the-line relief outside the bunker. You place a tee in the ground to create a reference point on the reference line and drop a ball in the relief area. The dropped ball first touches part of the ground in the general area in your relief area, but it then bounces and accidentally hits your foot that is outside the relief area. After hitting your foot, the ball rolls and comes to rest on a spot that is within one club-length of where it first touched the ground when dropped, but on the line marking a red penalty area. You play the ball from where it came to rest. How many penalty strokes do you get, if any?

13.  在比杆赛中,当地规则E-12生效,你的球在沙坑的一个动物洞穴中,你决定在沙坑外采取向后延线的补救。你在参考线的地面上插了一支tee建立了参考点,并在补救区抛下一个球。球首先触到补救区内的普通区域地面,但它随后弹起并意外地碰到了补救区外你的脚。击中你的脚后,球滚动并静置在一个位置,这个位置在与球首次触地之处在一杆范围内,但在红色罚杆区的红线上。你从球的现有位置打了球。你会得到多少杆罚杆- 如果有的话?

a. 0
b. 1
c. 2
d. 3

Correct Answer / 正确答案:b

Windy’s Notes

E-12 is nothing about the area of the course. And E-12 in BOL is a choosey one, you may redrop or play from there, both no penalty. The one Stroke Penalty comes from taking relief outside of the bunker.

E-12与球场的区域无关。而E-12在向后延线补救中是一个可选择的操作,即你可以选择重新抛球或就在球的现有球位打球,两者都没有处罚。一杆罚杆是来自你选择在沙坑外补救。

Hole 14

14.  Your ball ends up in a red penalty area defined by a red line. You decide to take lateral relief, but your relief area is on a steep slope. Any ball you drop into the relief area will roll into the penalty area, and not wanting to lose any more balls, you set down your golf bag in the relief area near the red line so that it will stop your ball from rolling into the water when you drop. You drop into the relief area twice, and each time the ball comes to rest in the relief area against your golf bag that you positioned to stop your ball. You then place a ball where it first hit the ground on the second drop. At this point another player in your group questions this and you consult an official. What is the ruling in stroke play?

a. You get no penalty and must continue with the ball you placed.

b. Neither drop counts and you must start again with your first drop. You get four penalty strokes (two general penalties) for deliberately stopping the dropped ball.

c. Neither drop counts and you must start again with your first drop. You get two penalty strokes for deliberately stopping the dropped ball, since each drop was a related act.

d. Neither drop counts and you must start again with your first drop. You get no penalty for your equipment stopping the ball after dropping.

14. 你的球最后落在一个由红线界定的红色罚杆区。你决定采取侧面补救,但你的补救区在一个陡峭的斜坡上,你在补救区内抛下的任何球都会滚入罚杆区。你不想再失去任何球,就在补救区内靠近红线的地方摆放下你的球包,这样可以截停你的球以免滚进水里。你在补救区内抛了两次球,每次球都在补救区内靠着你摆放下的球包停住了。之后你将球放在了第二次抛球时球首次触地之处。这时,你同组的另一位选手对此提出质疑,你于是向一位裁判咨询。在比杆赛中的裁定是什么?

a. 你没有处罚,必须继续打你放置的球。

b. 两次抛球都不算,你必须重新从你的第一抛开始。你因故意截停你抛下的球而被罚四杆(两个一般性罚杆)。

c. 两次抛球都不算,你必须重新从你的第一抛开始。你因故意截停你抛下的球而被罚两杆,因为每次抛球都是相关行为。

d. 两次抛球都不算,你必须重新从你的第一抛开始。(因为)你抛下的球被你的装备截停,你没有处罚。

Correct answer / 正确答案: a

Windy’s Notes

第14洞是“授权凌驾于禁令”的一个好例子。尽管题述的情况完全符合14.3d的处罚情况,但它也完全符合14.3d例外的情况。根据例外,两次抛球都算,且抛下的球都视为静止在补救区之外,球员继而可以执行放置,没有处罚。延伸阅读《冲突与凌驾》

Hole 15

15.  Your ball comes to rest on a cart path in the general area. You decide to take relief under Rule 16.1b. You determine your nearest point of complete relief in the general area and drop your ball in the one club-length relief area. The relief area is closely mown and on a steep slope. The ball rolls and comes to rest outside of the relief area, so you drop a second time and the ball rolls and comes to rest outside of the relief area again. You twice attempt to place the ball on the spot where it first touched the course on the second drop, but it won’t stay at rest on that spot. You begin to search for the nearest place where it will stay at rest. In finding the nearest place where your ball will remain at rest when placed, on which one of the following locations are you allowed to place your ball?

a. At a spot in the general area, not closer to the hole than where your ball first touched the ground on the second drop, but where you would be standing on the path.

b. At a spot in a nearby penalty area that is no closer to the hole than the nearest point of complete relief.

c. At a spot inside the original relief area that is nearer the hole than where the ball first touched the course on the second drop.

d. At a spot in the general area that is outside the relief area, but within another separate area of ground under repair, and is not closer to the hole than where the ball first touched the course on the second drop.

15.  你的球停在普通区域的球车道上。你决定根据16.1b 采取补救。你在普通区内确立了最近完全补救点,并在一杆范围内的补救区抛下了你的球。补救区的草剪得很细密而且是在一个陡峭的斜坡上, 球滚出并静止在补救区之外,因此你第二次抛球,球再次滚出并静止在补救区之外。你两次尝试将球放在第二抛球首次触地的位置,但球没能静止在那里。你开始寻找离这点最近且可以让球静止的地方,在寻找这个可以令球静止的点时,你可以将球放在以下哪一个位置?

a. 在普通区内的一个点,不比你的第二抛首次触地点更靠近球洞,但该点会令你站在球车道上。

b. 在附近罚杆区内的一个点,不比最近完全补救点更接近球洞。

c. 在原补救区内的一个点,该点比第二抛首次触地点更靠近球洞。

d. 在普通区内的一个点,该点在补救区之外,但在另一个(与补救区)不相连的修理地内,并且不比第二抛首次触地点更靠近球洞。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:d

Hole 16

16.  Your tee shot comes to rest in a yellow penalty area. You decide to take back-on-the-line relief and visually select a reference point on the reference line. Before dropping a ball to take relief, you replace a divot into a divot hole that is also on the reference line and about a foot behind the reference point you selected. You then drop a ball in the right way and it first touches the course about a foot behind the replaced divot but then rolls forward two club-lengths. You walk forward to get your ball to drop a second time and on your way back you notice the turtle is slowly walking toward your relief area. Not wanting to disturb the turtle, you decide to select a different reference point on the reference line about 10 yards closer to the hole. You drop your ball in the right way and it comes to rest in the relief area and you make the stroke. Which one of the following is true?  

 a. You proceeded correctly and get no penalty.  

b. You proceeded correctly and get one penalty stroke.  

c. You are not allowed to change relief areas when dropping a second time. You get two general penalties, one for improving the conditions affecting the stroke and one for playing from a wrong place.  

d. You were allowed to change relief areas when dropping a second time, but you still get the general penalty for improving the conditions affecting the stroke in the original relief area.  

16.  你的开球停在一个黄色罚杆区。你决定采取向后延线补救,并在参考线上目测选择了一个参考点。在抛球补救之前,你将一块草皮填回到一个打痕里,这个打痕就在你的参考线上并且在你选择的参考点后面大约一英尺。然后,你以正确的方式抛球,球在你放回去的草皮后约一英尺首次触到球场的地面,但随后向前滚动了两杆的距离。你向前走去捡起你的球准备第二抛,在你回来的路上,你注意到一只乌龟正慢慢走向你的补救区。因为不想打扰乌龟,你决定在参考线上向球洞近10码的地方选择另一个参考点。你以正确的方式抛下你的球,球静止在补救区内,然后你进行了击球。以下哪一项是正确的?

a. 你处理正确,没有处罚。 

b. 你处理正确,罚一杆。 

c. 你不允许在第二次抛球时改变补救区。你得到两个一般性处罚,一个是改善击球环境,一    个是在错误的地方打球。 

d. 你可以在第二次抛球时改变补救区,但你仍会因在原补救区改善击球环境而受到一般处罚。

Correct Answer / 正确答案:b 

Windy’s Note: 

    在补救区里面重置的那块草皮违反规则8.1a,你将得到一般性处罚。但是你的抛球滚出了补救区,规则要求你重抛。你之前执行的是向后延线补救,这个选项允许你再抛球时可以在参考线上选择不同的点,可以向前也可以向后。谢谢那只著名的乌龟吧,因为你使用了另一个补救区,之前你个改善击球环境的一般性处罚也随之免去了。【Clarification  14.5c】  

Hole 17

17. In stroke play, your tee shot comes to rest in a red penalty area. You choose to take relief using the lateral relief option of Rule 17.1d. You measure two club-lengths to the left and right of where the ball last crossed the edge of the penalty area. You drop a ball in the right way on the right side of the relief area. The ball rolls across the relief area, coming to rest within the relief area but nearly three  and a half club-lengths from where it first touched the course. You play the ball from there, but another player questions your actions, so you call for a referee. What is the ruling?  

a. You have proceeded correctly and get one penalty stroke for taking relief under Rule 17.1d.  

b. You should have dropped a second time. Since you did not do that, you get the general penalty for playing from a wrong place in addition to the penalty under Rule 17.1d, for a total of three strokes.  

c. You should have dropped a second time.  Since you did not do that, you get the general penalty for playing from a wrong place in addition to the penalty under Rule 17.1d for a total of three strokes, and you must correct the mistake.    

17. 在比杆赛中,你的开球停在红色罚杆区。你选择使用规则17.1d中的侧面补救选项。你在球最后越过罚杆区边缘点的左边和右边分别量了两杆。你以正确的方式在右侧的补救区里抛了球。球滚过补救区,停在补救区内,但离它首次触地点有将近三个半球杆的距离。你从那里打了球,但是另一位球员质疑你的行为,所以你叫了裁判。裁定是什么?

a. 你的处理正确,根据规则17.1d采取补救你要罚一杆。 

b. 你本应进行第二次抛球。由于你没有这样做,你除了得到规则17.1d规定的处罚外,还得到从错误位置打球的一般性处罚,共罚三杆。 

c. 你本应进行第二次抛球。 由于你没有这样做,你除了得到规则17.1d规定的处罚外,还得到从错误位置打球的一般性处罚,共罚三杆,而且你必须纠正错误。   

Correct Answer / 正确答案:a 

Hole 18

18. In stroke play, your second shot comes to rest in the general area amongst a pile of rocks near the putting green and you decide to take unplayable ball relief. When measuring under the lateral relief option, part of the two club-length relief area is on the putting green. You drop a ball in the part of the relief area that is on the putting green. It rolls to a different part of the relief area and comes to rest on the fringe, overhanging but not touching the surface of the putting green. You putt from there and take two more putts to finish the hole. What is your score for the hole?  

18. 在比杆赛中,你的第二杆停在果岭附近普通区的一堆石头中,你决定采取不可打之球的补救。当采取侧面补救选项进行量度时,两杆范围的补救区有一部分在果岭上。你在果岭的那部分补救区内抛下一个球。它滚到补救区的另一部分,停在果岭外缘地带,悬空但没有触碰到果岭的表面。你从那里推杆,又再推了两杆完成该洞。你这一洞成绩是几杆?

      今天看酒,看到了Château Mouton Rothschild木桐罗斯柴尔德酒庄2018的一款酒,798美元的价格当然令我瞪大了眼睛,继而令我皱起眉头的是上面两个奇怪的字符。

      木桐是一个法国波尔多酒庄。木桐酒庄的故事证明,有时伟大的成就是在为实现卓越和认可而不懈奋斗之后获得的。 木桐酒庄最初在1855年的官方分级中被列为二级酒庄。 1922年,酒庄被Phillippe de Rothschild男爵–一个真正的文艺复兴者–收购,并在标签上加上了他的名字。 男爵是一位大奖赛赛车手、编剧、剧作家、戏剧制作人、诗人,也是波尔多最成功的葡萄种植者之一。 他同时也是一个非常有个性的人,后来他把木桐酒庄的二级酒庄评级称为 “畸形的不公正”。

      男爵一生都在努力证明木桐酒庄应该获得一级酒庄的称号,作为一种抗议,他在酒标上加上了这样一句话。Premier ne puis, second ne daigne, Mouton suis(”不能居首,不甘第二,木桐是也”)。

       经过几十年的不懈游说(因为1855年的官方分类不仅需要同行的认可,还需要法国政府机构的签字),木桐酒庄在1973年获得了Premier Cru Classé–相当于一级酒庄的正确称号。

      木桐酒庄的场地由90公顷的葡萄树组成,夹在纪龙德河口和大西洋之间。 这里种植了赤霞珠、品丽珠、梅洛、小维多,甚至一些白葡萄品种,如长相思、赛美蓉和密斯卡岱。 这些有42年历史的葡萄树靠近吉伦特河,吉伦特河对其进行灌溉,并调节周围的温度。 葡萄园里有大量的砾石,坡度平缓,充满了葡萄树,酿出的葡萄酒艳丽而有力。

      木桐酒庄的情况是一个独特的例子。这些葡萄酒是庄园种植的,由手工采摘,在城堡里生产,以其异乎寻常的奢华风格而闻名。 男爵也是早期坚持庄园装瓶的地产商之一,这种做法自20世纪20年代以来已经成为标准。 罗斯柴尔德家族的许多成员在不管理葡萄园的时候,将他们的空闲时间交托给创造性的追求,如写作、导演和表演。 这种在家族血脉中流淌的创造力使人们理解到酿酒是一种艺术形式,自1945年以来,每瓶木桐酒庄的葡萄酒都有一个特别的标签,由一位著名艺术家受酒庄委托创作。 这些标签本身就值得收藏,其中包括–但不限于–Joan Miró、Pablo Picasso和Andy Warhol的作品。  当购买一瓶木桐酒庄的葡萄酒时,人们购买的是一件艺术作品。

      木桐酒庄的精神是一种不懈的决心和创造力。 难怪他们最好的葡萄酒拥有一种近乎于炫耀的强壮的颓废感。 对罗斯柴尔德家族来说,“第二好 ”是不可能的。 难怪现在每瓶酒上的短语是。Premier je suis, Second je fus, Mouton ne change(”我是第一,我曾第二,木桐不变”)

2018酒标

      木桐酒庄的业主Philippe Sereys de Rothschild、Camille Sereys de Rothschild和Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild委托中国艺术家和作家徐冰(生于1955年)为2018年份的葡萄酒制作标签。

      2018年酒标的艺术作品反映了艺术家对表象的虚幻辉煌的研究,这体现在他的方块字书法上,它类似于传统的中国字,但实际上是由拉丁字母组成的。徐冰通过发明一种独特的文字来表达他的语言创造力,在这种文字中,文字被吸收到中国传统意识形态的代码中。

      在这种文化的凝聚中,2018年份的标签以 “Mouton Rothschild “两个字为特色。


品酒笔记

      “2018年木桐酒庄拥有辉煌和极其纯净的黑莓、野草莓、蓝莓和压榨紫罗兰的花香,几乎是玛歌式的风格。像往常一样,新橡木桶被完美地整合在一起。这里有一股异国情调的暗流,但它非常谨慎,从未盖过木桐的DNA。口感中等,带着沙哑的黑色水果,有细微的酸度和丰富的黑色水果层次。这是近年来木桐酒庄更奢侈的年份之一,与前两个年份相比,后味更甜,但仍保持着新鲜感和张力。它在初藏期就会不可抗拒,在瓶中静置十年后将有更大的得益”。- Neal Martin,vinous.com(2019年11月),评级。95-97,饮用:2026-2060

      “2018年的木桐酒庄由86%的赤霞珠、12%的梅洛和2%的品丽珠组成–还有一部分是他们所有的小维铎,但它甚至没有登记在百分比中。葡萄是在9月10日至10月3日收获的,葡萄酒在12月初进行了混合;它的酒精含量为13.8%,今年的单宁酸略高。酒体呈深紫黑色,与一些2018年的酒相比,开始时有点封闭,慢慢展开,显示出深刻的温暖的黑李子、黑加仑蜜饯、八角、蓝莓馅饼和摩卡的香味,还有蜜饯紫罗兰、乌龙茶、樟脑和未熏制的雪茄以及淡淡的碎石味道。中等到饱满的酒体,口中呈现出一波又一波丰盛的香料黑色和蓝色水果,无缝的酸度提升了这种华丽的口感,既能感受到成熟水果的丰满,又能感受到超级成熟的单宁带来的坚实和颗粒感,最后是非常长且美妙的奶油口感。” – Lisa Perotti-Brown,《罗伯特-帕克葡萄酒倡导者》(4/23/2019,波尔多2018年版),评级。97-99

Hole 1

Question: As you are attempting to drop a ball correctly in the relief area, the ball accidentally hits the tee you placed in the ground to indicate the nearest point of complete relief. The ball strikes the tee before it hits the ground, but the dropped ball remains in the relief area. You play the ball as it lies. How many penalty strokes do you get, if any?       

当你试图在补救区正确抛球时,球意外碰到了你插在地上用来标示最近补救点的球座。球是先碰到球座然后再触地的,但落下的球仍在补救区内。你按照球的现有位置打了球。如果有的话,你会罚几杆 

a. 0
b. 1
c. 2 

Correct Answer / 正确答案:b 

 Windy’s Note:

第一洞带我们来认识抛球的最基本概念:抛球的正确方式尽管书上写的是三个分项,但正确的方式其实包括五项内容 

✅1正确的人指的是球员本身在某些规则中包含伙伴 
✅2球必须是垂直落下的 
✅3球必须从膝高处抛下 
✅4球触地前没有碰到球员或者装备的任何部分 
✅5,球必须抛在补救区内 

五项内容同时勾选才算正确抛球,任何一项没有做对都没有做到正确抛球,我们当地同行私下里称为“Bad drop”, and bad drops never count。 

其次需要关注的就是装备的定义和它的性质状态。一支tee在规则中可以有很多不同的性质状态,但在上述的情况中它就是装备(Clarification 14.3b(2)- Dec/2018), 因此第四条没能打勾。 

没有以正确方式抛下的球理论上会落在错误的地方,但是事实上补救区是你应该打球的地方所以最终球是在补救区内还是区外打出去的变得非常关键,规则采取了内外有别的不同处罚待遇:区外打的是在错误的地方打球,一般性处罚;区内的打的规则视为是一个程序性错误,罚一杆(R14.3b)。 

Hole 2

Question: In taking relief from a cart path (immovable obstruction), you pick up your ball and drop it within the relief area. The ball rolls and comes to rest outside of the relief area, so you pick it up to drop a second time and notice a scuff on the ball, which was probably caused when your shot hit the path. Although the ball is not cut or cracked, you decide to get another ball from your bag. You drop the new ball in the right way and it comes to rest in the relief area. Which one of the following is correct?     

a. You are not allowed to use a substituted ball because the original ball was not cut or cracked. The second drop does not count and you must drop the original ball a second time to avoid penalty.   

b. You are not allowed to use a substituted ball because the original ball was not cut or cracked.   You must mark the location of the substituted ball, lift it, and place the original ball on that spot.   

c.  You have proceeded correctly and must continue with the substituted ball.   

d. You would have been allowed to substitute a ball before dropping the first time, but once a ball is dropped, you must continue with that ball for any further drops. If you play the substituted ball, you get the general penalty.    

问题:在从球车道(不可移动妨碍物)补救时,你拿起你的球并把它抛在补救区内。球滚到了补救区外,你拿起它准备进行第二抛时注意到球上有一个擦痕,这可能是球砸在球车道上造成的。虽然球没有切痕或破裂,但你还是决定从球包拿另外一个球。你以正确的方式抛下新球,它停在了补救区内。以下哪一项是正确的?  

a.  你不允许使用替换球,因为原球没有切痕或破裂。第二抛不算,你必须用初始球进行第二抛以避免处罚

b.  你不允许使用替换球,因为原球没有切痕或破裂。你必须标出替换球的位置,拿起它,并将初始球放在该位置上。 

c.  你的做法是正确的,必须以替换球继续比赛。

d.  你可以在第一次抛球前替换一个球,但是一旦抛了球,你就必须继续用这个球来抛球。如果你打了替换球,你将受到一般性处罚。 

Correct Answer / 正确答案:  c

Hole 4 

Question: You are dropping your ball when taking embedded ball relief in the fairway. The dropped ball hits your club that you left on the ground in the relief area and the ball comes to rest in the relief area. Which one of the following is false?      

a.  If the ball accidentally hit your club before first hitting the ground in the relief area, you must drop again, and this drop does not count as one of the two drops required before a ball must be placed under Rule 14.3c(2).   

b.  If the ball hit the ground in the relief area and then accidentally hit your club, you must drop again, and this drop does not count as one of the two drops required before a ball must be placed under Rule 14.3c(2).   

c.  If the ball hit the ground in the relief area and then hit your club that you left in position to keep the ball from rolling into a divot hole within the relief area, you get the general penalty for deliberately deflecting the ball and this drop does not count as one of the two drops required before a ball must be placed under Rule 14.3c(2).   

问题: 你正在球道上进行陷入地面之球的补救,抛下的球砸在了你放在补救区内的球杆上,之后球静止在补救区内。以下哪一项是错误的? 

a.   如果球在补救区首次触地前意外击中你的球杆,你必须再次抛球,题述的抛球不计入规则14.3c(2)规定的必须放置球之前的两次抛球中的一次。

b.  如果球在补救区触地后意外地碰到你的球杆上,你必须再次抛球,题述的抛球不计入规则14.3c(2)规定的必需放置球之前的两次抛球中的一次

c.  如果球在补救区触地然后碰到你的球杆上,而你放置球杆在该位置是为了防止球滚入补救区内的一个打痕,你会因故意使球变向而受到一般性处罚,而且题述的抛球不计入规则14.3c(2)规定的必须放置球之前的两次抛球之一。

Correct Answer / 正确答案: b 

Hole 5

Question: In stroke play, with no Local Rules in effect, your ball comes to rest in the general area close to a sprinkler head that interferes with your area of intended stance. The sprinkler head is in the fringe, two feet from the putting green. Which one of the following is true about taking free relief from the sprinkler head? 

a.  If part of your one club-length relief area includes the putting green, you may place a ball in the relief area on the putting green.   

b.  If part of your one club-length relief area includes the putting green, you may drop a ball in the relief area on the putting green.   

c.  If you drop a ball in the relief area that first hits the ground in the fringe and it rolls and comes to rest on the putting green in the relief area and within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of complete relief, you may play the ball from there without penalty.    

d.  If you drop a ball in the relief area that first hits the ground in the fringe and it rolls and comes to rest on the putting green in the relief area and within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of complete relief, you must drop a second time.

a.  如果你的一杆范围补救区包含一部分果岭,你可以在果岭部分的救补救区内放置一个球。 

b.  如果你的一杆范围补救区包含一部分包括果岭,你可以在果岭部分的补救区内抛球。 

c.  如果你在补救区抛下的球首先落在果岭围环的地面上,然后滚到并静止在补救区内的推杆果岭部分,并位于最近完全补救点的一杆范围内且不更靠近旗洞,你可以从那里打球而不受处罚。   

d.  如果你在救灾区落下的球首先落在果岭围环的地面上,然后滚到并静止在补救区内的推杆果岭部分,并位于最近完全补救点的一杆范围内且不更靠近旗洞你必须进行第二次抛球

Hole 7

Question: You are taking relief from a red penalty area and want to use Rule 17.1d(3) – Lateral Relief. You drop a ball from knee height and it lands in the relief area, but rolls and comes to rest in the same penalty area. You drop a second time from knee height and the ball lands just outside the relief area and comes to rest inside it. Knowing you get one penalty stroke for taking relief from the penalty area, what must you do to avoid further penalty?  

a. Play the ball from where it came to rest after the second drop.  

b. Place a ball at the point it first touched the ground on the first drop.   

c. Drop a ball again in the relief area. If it comes to rest in the relief area, play it from there, if not, place it where it first hit the ground on the third drop.  

d. Drop a ball again, using any of the other options available under Rule 17.1d – Relief for Ball in Penalty Area.   

你正在采取红色罚杆区补救,想使用17.1d(3)–侧面补救。你从膝高抛下一个球,球落在补救区内,但滚到并停在同一罚杆区内。你第二次从膝高抛球,球刚好落在补救区之外,然后静止在(补救区)内。你知道你从罚杆区补救要罚一杆,之后你必须做什么来避免进一步的处罚?

a. 从第二次抛球后球静止之处打球。

Hole 9

Question: You find your ball in a bush left of the fairway near a bunker. You decide to take lateral relief under the unplayable ball Rule. To get as far away from the bush as possible, you try to drop on the grass near the bunker. When attempting to drop a ball in the grass, it first touches sand in the bunker and embeds. You measure and find that the ball in the bunker is within two club-lengths of and no closer to the hole than where the ball was in the bush. Which one of the following is correct?  

a. The drop does not count and you must drop again. The bunker is not part of the relief area when taking lateral relief under the unplayable ball Rule for a ball in the general area.  

b. Although part of the relief area was in the bunker, this drop does not count and you must drop again because your intent was to drop in the general area and not in the bunker.  

c. You must continue with the ball dropped in the bunker.  

d. You have the option of playing the ball as it lies in the bunker or taking embedded ball relief.  

问题:你在球道左边靠近沙坑的一个灌木丛中找到了你的球。你决定根据 不可打之球的规则采取侧面补救。为了尽可能地远离灌木丛,你尝试在靠近沙坑的草地上抛球。你试图把球抛在草地上,但球首先触到沙坑中的沙子并陷在里面。你测量后发现,沙坑中的球距离它在灌木丛的位置不超过两杆范围,且不更靠近球洞。以下哪一项是正确的?

a. 这一抛不算,你必须再次抛球。当根据不可打球规则, 对位于普通区内的球进行侧面补救时,沙坑不属于补救区的一部分。

b. 虽然补救区的一部分在沙坑内,但这次抛球不算,你必须再次落球,因为你的意图是(将球)抛在普通区域而不是沙坑。

c. 你必须继续打抛在沙坑内的球。

d. 你可以选择打沙坑中的球,或者进行陷入地面之球的补救。

Making the Turn and the Back Nine  (Questions 10-18) 

As you walk to the 10th tee, there’s a sign informing you that course maintenance had to modify their normal routine today and that you should expect slightly faster green speeds on the back nine… 

Hole 10 

Question: In stroke play, your ball comes to rest above and near a steep slope on the putting green. Without your authorization or knowledge, your caddie marks the spot of and lifts your ball, cleans it, and replaces it on its original spot. A gust of wind causes your ball at rest to move down the slope and it comes to rest on a different part of the putting green. Without marking the ball’s spot in the new location, you lift it and try to replace it on its original spot but it won’t come to rest. You try to replace it a second time, without success. Rather than moving away from the original spot to find the nearest spot where your ball will come to rest, you try to replace it on the original spot for a third time and, this time, the ball stays at rest. You then make a stroke from that spot, the original spot where it first came to rest on the putting green. How many penalty strokes do you get, if any? 

(a) 0 
(b) 1 
(c) 2 
(d) 3 

CORRECT ANSWER: A 

When you get to the putting green, you can immediately tell the putting green is running a bit faster, as you are forced to think through a number of unusual happenings. 

Your caddie can always mark, lift and clean your ball on the putting green (remember, the putting green is a special place where you can always lift your ball so this specific act is treated different from the many other actions your caddie must first have your permission or authorization to do – see Rule 10.3b.).  And, since your caddie lifted it, he or she can replace it too. 

Your ball now “owns the spot” because it’s been lifted or moved from that spot. Therefore, even though it moves due to the wind (a natural force) it owns the spot and you’ll need to replace back on the original spot before you play. 

When the ball doesn’t stay on the original spot, you did the right thing trying a second time and now must find the nearest spot where the ball will stay at rest. A quick reading of Rule 14.2e might have you thinking that trying a third time on the same spot isn’t the right procedure, but it’s pretty hard to get closer to the original spot than the original spot … right?!? 

All said, no penalties and ready for more Back Nine fun.  

问题: 在比杆赛中,你的球停在果岭,位于球洞的上方,靠近一个陡峭的下坡。你的球童在没有你的授权或知情的情况下标记了你的球位并把你的球拿起来,清洁干净,然后把它放置回原位。一阵风使你静止的球顺着斜坡向下滚,并停在果岭的另一个地方。你没有在新的位置上标记球位就把它拿了起来,试图把它放置回原位,但是它没静止下来。你第二次尝重置,没有成功。你没有离开原位去寻找离你的球最近的停点,而是第三次尝试在原位上重置它。这一次,球停静止在原地。然后,你从那里,也就是球第一次停在果岭上的那个地方打出一杆。如果要罚杆的话,你要罚多少杆? 

(a) 0 
(b) 1 
(c) 2 
(d) 3 

正确答案 A 

就在你走上果岭时,你立刻感到果岭的速度更快了,因为你不得不思考一些不寻常的状况。 

你的球童总是可以在果岭上标记、拿起和清洁你的球(记住,果岭是一个特殊的地方,你总是可以拿起你的球,所以,这个特定的行为与你的球童必须先得到你的许可或授权才能做的许多其他行为的处理方式不同–见规则10.3b)。 而且,既然你的球童拿起了它,他或她也可以把它放回原位。 

你的球现在 “拥有这个位置”,因为它已经在这个位置上被拿起或移走过。因此,即使它因风(一种自然力)而移动,它仍然拥有这个位置,你需要在打球前将其放回原位。 

当球没能静止在原来的位置时,你做了第二次正确的尝试,现在必须找到最近的位置使球可以静止。快速阅读一下规则14.2e可能会让你觉得在同一地点尝试第三次并不是正确的程序,但是要找比原点更接近原点是相当困难的……对吗?!? 

都说了,没有处罚,继续享受更多后九的乐趣。 

Hole 11 

Question: Which one of the following is true regarding the replacement of your ball under the Rules? 

(a) The original ball must always be used. 
(b) Regardless of who moved your ball, your partner may always replace it. 
(c) If you make a stroke at your ball after it is replaced by someone who is not allowed, you lose the hole in match play. 
(d) You may replace your ball on its original spot by rolling it into position with a club. 

CORRECT ANSWER: B 

Hole 11, aptly names 3 myths and one truth, and tests your ability to distinguish that fact from those fictions. If there is one thing to by weary of, it’s the use of the word always when talking about the Rules, and immediately puts a target on one of the first two Options. 

For Option A, a quick read of Rule 14.2a will make clear that the original ball doesn’t always have to be used. While this is true in most situations you’ll encounter during a round (even here on the Short Course), the Rules do provide a few common sense exceptions that let you use another ball. 

In Option B, well this is an always you can trust, because your partner can do pretty much anything that you can. And in this case, your partner can always replace your ball, even if he or she wasn’t the one who lifted in the first place. 

Option C, speaks to one of the most common rules myths – that one-stroke penalties only exist in stroke play. The truth is that there are a number of one-stroke penalties in match play too, this being one of them. 

Finally, Option D focuses on the “how to” of replacing a ball. To properly replace (or place) a ball, it needs to be set down with your hand and on the correct spot. If you roll it back with your club, even if you get it to the right spot, you have failed to properly replace the ball.  

问题:关于将球放置回原位,根据规则以下哪一项是正确的? 

(a) 必须总是使用原球。 
(b) 无论谁移动了你的球,你的伙伴总是可以将它放回原位。 
(c) 如果你击打了一个被规则不允许的人放置回原位的球,在比洞赛中你会输掉该洞。 
(d) 你可以用球杆将你的球滚回到原来的位置上来实现重置(放置回原位)。 

正确答案 B 

第11洞,恰如其分地说出了3个谬传和1个事实同时考验你将这一事实与那些虚构的东西区分开来的能力。如果说有一件事必需注意的,那就是在谈论规则的时候使用 “总是(always)” 这个词,这样立即就把目标(答案)放在了前两个选项中的一个。 

对于选项A,快速阅读一下规则14.2a就会明白,原球并不总是必须使用。虽然你在一轮中遇到的大多数情况下都是如此(即使是在short course上),但规则确实提供了一些常识性的例外情况,让你使用另一个球。 

在选项B中,嗯,这是一个你可以信任的“总是”,因为你的伙伴几乎可以做任何你可以做的事情。而在本题的情况下,你的伙伴总是可以将你的球放置回原位,即使他或她不是那个从原位拿起你的球的人。 

选项C,说的是最常见的规则谬传之一 —— 罚一杆只存在于比杆赛中。事实是,在比洞赛中也有许多罚一杆的,这就是其中之一。 

最后,选项D侧重于放置回原位的 “方法”。要正确地重置(或放置)一个球,需要用你的手把它放在正确的位置上。如果你用球杆把它滚回去,即使你把它静止在正确的位置上,你也没有正确地把球放置回原位。 

Hole 12

Question: Your ball comes to rest in a position where you have interference from ground under repair and are allowed relief under Rule 16.1b. You mark the spot of your ball and lift it to take relief, and then realize the relief area is under a bush. Which one of the following actions would result in you not getting one penalty stroke under Rule 9.4?

(a) Replace the ball on the original spot.
(b) Replace the ball on the original spot and then take unplayable ball relief (Rule 19.2).
(c) Without first replacing the ball, take back-on-the-line unplayable ball relief (Rule 19.2b) using the spot where the original ball lay as the reference point.
(d) Without first replacing the ball or dropping it in the relief area, take stroke-and-distance relief.

CORRECT ANSWER: D

Every seasoned referee has come upon a player seeking rules help, only to wish they had arrived sooner in seeing there are no good relief options as the player smiles meekly having already lifted the ball (doesn’t it seem that our Short Course referees end up in that situation all the time??).

Fortunately, they all have a good understanding of Interpretation 9.4b/6, which provides helpful guidance to determine which Option will avoid a penalty stroke under Rule 9.4b.

Options A and B both result in a one penalty stroke under Rule 9.4. To avoid penalty here, you need to continue on and complete cart path relief under Rule 16.1. By not doing so, you are no longer allowed to lift the ball, and the Exceptions to Rule 9.4 no longer apply – unfortunately that penalty stroke does. Further, in Option B, you’ll need to add another penalty stroke when you decide to take unplayable relief.

Option C has a similar outcome to Option B in that you’ll end up with a penalty under Rule 9.4b and an additional penalty stroke for later deciding to take unplayable ball relief under Rule 19b. If you had decided to take unplayable relief before lifting the ball, you could have avoided the Rule 9.4b penalty. Unfortunately, that’s not what you did, so you’ll need to add two.

That leaves just Option D, where your dear friend, stroke-and-distance relief always seems to provide a way out. As has been noted before, always is rare in the Rules, but stroke and distance is, in fact, always an option.

That, however, doesn’t provide the full story as to why this option is available without getting a penalty under Rule 9.4, whereas the other two unplayable ball relief option don’t keep score the same way.

The difference with stroke-and-distance relief involves two points. The first is that you were allowed to lift your ball in the first place (because you had interference from an abnormal course condition). The second, is that regardless of whether you continued taking relief from the cart path under Rule 16.1, or directly took stroke-and-distance relief, you don’t need to establish a new reference point … the spot of your last stroke is fixed either way. Because of these two important points, you may proceed back to where you last played form without the additional one-stroke penalty.

问题:你的球静止在一个受到修理地妨碍的位置上,根据规则16.1b允许补救。你标记了你的球位并拿起了球准备补救,然后发现补救区在一丛灌木下。以下哪种行为不会导致你被规则9.4罚一杆?

(a) 把球放置回原位。

(b) 把球放置回原位,然后采取不可打之球的补救(规则19.2)。

(c) 球不放回原位,以球的初始位置为参照点,采取不可打之球的向后延线补救(规则19.2b)。

(d) 球既不放回原位,也不在补救区内抛球,而是采取一杆加距离的补救。

正确答案 D

每个经验丰富的裁判员都曾碰到这样的情形:赶到一个需要规则帮助的球员面前,却恨自己没能早点到场——这位球员在还没找到好的补救方案之前就已经笑眯眯地拿起了球。(我们的Short Course裁判不是经常遇到这种情况吗??)

幸运的是,他们都很好地理解了释义9.4b/6,它提供了有用的指导,以确定哪一个选项可以避免规则9.4b下的罚杆。

根据规则9.4,选项A和B都会导致罚一杆。为了避免处罚,你需要继续完成规则16.1所规定的球车道补救。假如不这样做,你就不再拥有拿起球的授权,规则9.4的例外情况也不再适用,不过不幸的是,(规则9.4下的)罚杆却依然适用。此外,在选项B中,当你决定采取不可打之球的补救时,你需要再加上一杆罚杆。

选项C的结果与选项B相似,你根据规则9.4b被处罚,并且因为后来决定采取不可打之球的补救而被规则19b追加一杆罚杆。如果你在拿起球之前就决定采取不可打之球的补救,你就可以避免规则9.4b的处罚。不幸的是,你没有这样做,所以你需要加两杆。

这就只剩下选项D了,一杆加距离在这里似乎是你的密友,总是给你一条生路。正如之前所说的,“总是”在规则中是很罕见的,事实上,一杆加距离就总是一个(可供选择的)选项。

然而,故事讲到这里还没完,就是为什么这个选项可以不受规则9.4的处罚,而其他两个不可打之球的补救却不能用同样的方式计算?

与一杆加距离的区别涉及两点。第一,规则允许你从球的初始位置拿起球(因为你有来自异常球场状况的妨碍)。第二,无论你是根据规则16.1继续从球车道上脱困,还是直接采取一杆加距离脱困,你都不需要建立一个新的参考点……你上一杆的击球位置是固定的。因为这很重要的两点,你可以继续回到你上一次击球的位置,而不需要额外罚一杆。 

Hole 13

Question: Your approach shot comes to rest on the putting green ten feet from the hole. As you are approaching your ball to mark its spot, a gust of wind moves your ball and it comes to rest down a slope and away from the hole where you are now faced with a more difficult putt. You ask your caddie to throw you a towel so you can clean your ball, but it comes up short and the wind blows your towel into your ball, causing it to move a few inches farther from the hole. Knowing that wind is a natural force, you play the ball from its new location. What is the ruling?

(a) You proceeded correctly and get no penalty.
(b) You get one penalty stroke.
(c) You get the general penalty.

CORRECT ANSWER: C

Here on Hole 13 you demonstrated a good understanding in knowing that wind is a natural force, however the Rules don’t give your caddie a pass for that poor toss of your towel. This situation comes down to cause and effect and the timing involved.

You and your caddie saw the towel come up short of the target, with the wind blowing it into your ball.  So, you’ll want to ensure you replace your ball before making your next stroke. Having failed to do this, you earned the general penalty.

Extra credit to those of you who were scratching your head thinking that there’s no way to know whether Rule 9.4 or 9.6 applied here (that fact set was deliberately left vague noting it isn’t necessary to correctly answer the question and, after all, you are playing the Back Nine…). The following extra info should close that loop.

Let’s start with the status of the towel in the context of Rule 9. It is an outside influence (which is covered under Rule 9.6), as is anything that your caddie might throw your way.

Next, the following phrase that is included in the question, “but it comes up short and the wind blows your towel into your ball” can be read in two very different ways.

The first would be that the towel came up short of reaching you and it was blown directly into your ball. This would be the equivalent of your caddie dropping the towel directly onto your ball – in basic terms, your caddie should have been more careful and Rule 9.4 would apply.

The other way you could have read that phrase was that the terrible towel toss first came to rest on the putting green, and only then the wind blew the towel toward your ball and moved it. In this reading, Rule 9.6 would apply (and Interpretation 9.6/1 helps to make that clear).

Repeating from earlier, because you failed to replace your ball before you played, it is not necessary to know which of these Rules applied to correctly answer the question, but it’s the extra information here in our “Thoughts on the Round” that we hope gives you a better understanding of when to blame your caddie and when you can give him or her a pass.

问题: 你把球攻上果岭,球停在离洞10英尺的果岭上。当你走向你的球准备标记它的位置时,一阵风吹动了你的球,使它移动到并静止在一个斜坡上且离球洞更远了,你现在面临一个更困难的推杆。你让你的球童给你扔一条毛巾,这样你可以清洁你的球,但毛巾扔短了,风把你的毛巾吹到了你的球上,导致它离洞口又远了几英寸。你知道风是一种自然力,你从新的位置打了球。判定是什么?

(a) 你的处理正确,没有处罚。
(b) 你被罚一杆。
(c) 你得到一般性处罚。

正确答案 C

在13号洞这里,你很好地表现出你理解风是一种自然力,但规则并没有给你球童扔毛巾的糟糕表现一个机会。这种情况涉及到因果关系和时机问题。

你和你的球童已经看到毛巾扔短了,风把它吹到你的球上。 因此,你要确保在进行下一次击球前把你的球放置回原位。没有这样做,你得到了一般性处罚。

这里该用规则9.4还是9.6呢?给你们那些搞不清该用哪条而正在挠头的一些额外的帮助吧(这道题的事实设定就是故意含糊其辞地留下一些影响你正确回答问题的非必要信息。说到底,你正在打的是后九……)。下面的额外信息应该可以帮你搞定。

让我们先来看看毛巾在规则9中的身份状态。它是一种外部因素(包括在规则9.6中),就像你的球童可能扔给你的任何东西一样。

接下来,问题中包括的这句话:“但是毛巾扔短了,风把你的毛巾吹到了你的球上”,可以有两种非常不同的解读方式。

第一种情况是,毛巾还没有碰到你就直接吹被到了你的球上。这相当于你的球童将毛巾直接丢到了你的球上—从根本上讲,你的球童应该更加小心,规则9.4将适用。

你也可以用另一种方式来解读这句话,那就是:那条毛巾被糟糕地扔出去后首先停在果岭上,然后风才将毛巾吹向你的球并移动了它。在这种解读中,规则9.6将适用(解释9.6/1有助于明确这一点)。

重复前面的内容,因为你在击球前没有将球放回原位,所以没有必要知道这些规则中的哪一条适用于正确回答这个问题。不过在《本轮思考》里面,我们希望这些额外信息能让你更好地理解什么时候该责怪你的球童,什么时候可以不计较。

Hole 14

Question: Your tee shot comes to rest in a muddy portion of a red penalty area. While walking toward your ball, you see the turtle move your ball and it rolls down into the water. Although it would be both easy and quick to get your ball, you replace a different ball on the spot it was moved from to avoid getting your shoes dirty. While setting up to make your stroke, you have second thoughts about playing from the mud. Instead you decide to take penalty area relief. After taking relief, you play the ball onto the putting green and then complete the hole in two more strokes. What is your score for the hole?

(a) 4
(b) 5
(c) 6
(d) 7

CORRECT ANSWER: B

There’s a lot going on in the penalty area on 14th hole (and if you played Round 2, you may have noticed our 🐢 friend seems to call this part of the course home) and we’ll start by reminding you of what was covered back on Hole 11, where we normally need to replace the original ball, but sometimes the Rules let us substitute.

In this case because your original ball can be quickly and easily retrieved, you must use the original ball in operating under Rule 9.6.

But what triggers the penalty for substituting a ball when not allowed? It’s not just the act of replacing another ball. This incorrect substitution is a procedural breach in which Rule 14.5 gives you the opportunity to fix up until you make a stroke, and your “second thought” about playing that incorrectly substituted ball also saves you the general penalty.

To understand this, you’ll need to dig a little deeper than the Rules, noting Interpretation 14.2/1 makes it clear that when you decide to take relief under a Rule, the replacement requirement under Rule 9 is not required – you can instead jump right into the other relief procedure.

So to add ‘em up correctly on Hole 14, you can forget about anything in Rule 9 (and that incorrect substitution), and just be sure to count all your talent strokes, and also that penalty stroke for taking penalty area relief, which makes your score on the hole 14 a five. 

问题:你从发球区打出的球静止在红色罚杆区的泥泞部分。当你走向你的球时,你看到一只乌龟移动了你的球,使球滚落到水中。虽然拿回你的球既简单又迅速,但你为了避免弄脏鞋,将另一个球放置回被移动之前的地方,当你准备击球时,你对从泥地里打球有了不同的想法,你决定采取罚杆区补救。在采取补救措施后,你将球打到果岭上,然后又用两杆完成该洞。你在这洞的成绩是?

(a) 4
(b) 5
(c) 6
(d) 7

正确答案B

在第14洞的罚杆区发生了很多事情(如果你打了第二轮,你可能已经注意到我们的乌龟🐢朋友似乎把这球场当成家了),我们先提醒你回到第11洞,通常我们需要将原球放置回原位,但有时规则允许我们替换。

在本题的情况下,因为你的原球可以迅速而容易地取回,所以根据规则9.6,你必须使用原球进行操作。

但是,在不允许的情况下替换了球,究竟是什么触发了处罚呢?并非仅仅重置了另外一个球这个行为本身(就触发了处罚)。这种错误的替换是一种程序性违规,规则14.5给了你修正的机会,前提是你还没有击打该球。你对于打那个错误替换的球的新想法,也使你避免了那个一般性处罚。

要理解这一点,你需要比规则本身挖掘得更深入地一点,注意解析14.2/1明确指出,当你决定根据规则采取补救措施时,不需要你遵循规则9的重置要求–你反而可以直接跳入其他补救程序。

因此,为了在14号洞正确加分,你可以忘记规则9中的任何内容(以及那个错误的替换),只需确保计算你所有的实际击球杆数,以及采取罚杆区补救的罚杆,这使得你在14号洞的成绩为5杆。

Hole 15

Question: True or False: Your ball comes to rest in the fairway and you carefully set your bag down near your ball. While determining the yardage for your next shot, your bag falls over and moves your ball. You get no penalty for your ball being moved and are required to replace it on its original spot.

(a) True
(b) False

CORRECT ANSWER: A

On Hole 15, you’re reminded that anytime a ball at rest moves, the answer to, “what caused the ball to move?” is of critical importance. While the answer here might seem simple – it was your bag that moved it – this question gives you a good opportunity to appreciate how interconnected the Rules are. As you’ve learned previously, Rule 9.2 only recognizes four things that can be responsible for moving a ball at rest.

You should start by excluding which of the four things are clearly not responsible.

  • Your opponent (or his or her caddie): There’s no mention of any other players here (nor any mention of match play), so you can exclude an opponent (or his or her caddie) and Rule 9.5.
  • You or your caddie: You carefully set your bag down and you were getting your yardage when it fell over and moved your ball. So, we can also exclude Rule 9.4. If you are thinking you still bear some responsibility, know that had you dropped your bag on your ball, you would be considered to have caused it to move, but this question is drafted to create space (or time) between your placement of your bag and it subsequently falling over so it is your bag and not you that caused your ball to move. In between the facts of this question and you dropping your bag directly on your ball is the tipping point and there’s not a black and white line defined by the Rules. There is a nuance here that will at times require a committee’s judgment to decide if you are responsible, but that’s not the case here.

That leaves two other possible reasons for your ball’s movement: natural forces (Rule 9.3) or an outside influence (Rule 9.6). Interpretation 9.6/1 will help you figure out which of these two things will apply, noting that Rule 9.6 applies if wind causes an outside influence (in this question your golf bag) to move your ball.

In this case, while there’s no mention of wind, gravity (which is also a natural force) clearly factored into your bag falling over and can be substituted into the Interpretation to give the same result.

That gets us to Option A – True – because when your ball is moved by an outside influence there’s no penalty and the ball must be replaced.

问题:正确或错误。你的球停在球道上,你小心翼翼地把你的球包放在球的附近。在估计下一杆的码数时,你的球包倒了并导致你的球移动了。你没有因为你的球被移动而受倒处罚,你必需将球放置回原位。

(a) True
(b) False

正确答案 A

第15洞,提醒你一下,任何时候静止的球被移动,”是什么导致了球的移动?”这个问题的答案是至关重要的。虽然这里的答案看起来可能很简单–是你的球包移动了它–但这个问题给了你一个很好的机会来了解规则是如何相互关联的。正如你之前所学到的,规则9.2只承认有四种东西可以导致静止的球移动。

你应该先排除这四件事中哪些是明显没有责任的。

  • 你的对手(或他或她的球童)。这里没有提到任何其他球员(也没有提到比赛),所以你可以排除对手(或他或她的球童)和规则9.5。
  • 你或你的球童:你小心翼翼地将你的球包放下,你在获取你的码数时,球包倒了并导致了你的球移动。所以,我们也可以排除规则9.4。可能你仍然认为你要承担一些责任,因为你知道假如是你把球包(直接)掉在你的球上,这会被认定是你导致了球的移动。但这道题目的文字就是为了在你放置球包和它随后倒下之间创造一个空间(或时间),这样就是你的球包而不是你导致了你的球移动。在本题的情况和你把球包直接掉在你的球上这两个事实之间存在着一个临界点,规则中并没有对此定义一个非黑即白的界限。这里的细微差别有时需要委员会来判断你是否有责任,不过本题的情况不需要。

你的球的移动就剩了另外两个可能的原因了:自然力(规则9.3)或外部因素(规则9.6)。解析9.6/1将帮助你弄清这两种东西的哪一种适用,注意到如果风导致外部因素(在本题里指你的高尔夫球包)移动了你的球,则规则9.6适用。

在本题的情况下,虽然没有提到风,但重力(这也是一种自然力)显然是导致你的球包倒下的因素,可以在解析中将“风”换成“重力”,会得到同样的结果。

这让我们看到了选项A–真的–因为当你的球被外部因素移动时,没有任何处罚,必须把球放置回原位。

Hole 16 

Question: Your tee shot comes to rest in the general area next to a pine cone and near a sprinkler control box. You have a reasonable but risky shot over a penalty area in playing toward the green. While simulating your swing to see if you have interference from the sprinkler control box, your club accidentally hits the pine cone and causes your ball to move. You replace the ball on the spot it was moved from without replacing the pine cone next to it. The wind changes direction, so you decide to chip out into the fairway instead of playing toward the green. You hit your next shot onto the green and complete the hole in two more strokes. What is your score for the hole? 

(a) 5 
(b) 6 
(c) 7 
(d) 8 

CORRECT ANSWER: A 

Counting up your “talent strokes” here gets to five, which also happens to be the correct answer (Option A). 

The facts included in this question requires you to ignore two significant red herrings. 

The first, is when you accidentally caused your ball to move. There’s no question it was your actions that caused your ball to move, so Rule 9.4 applies and your ball will need to be replaced before you play. 

However, knowing if you get a penalty requires a good understanding of how Exception 4 to Rule 9.4b is applied. A reading of two important Interpretations (Interpretation 9.4b/4 and 9.4b/5) will quickly get you up to speed to ensure you don’t also include a penalty in your score because your actions occurred “while” taking “reasonable actions” in determining if relief is available. 

The second is whether or not you need to replace the pine cone next to your ball. This takes you to Exception 1 to Rule 15.1a, which notes that when a ball needs to be replaced, there are times when loose impediments may not be removed. But it also makes clear that the Exception does not apply to a loose impediment moved when a ball is moved. Such is the case for that pine cone.  

问题: 你的开球停在普通区,球紧挨着一颗松果并在喷水控制箱附近。(如果)你向着果岭打,你就会有一个合理但要越过一个罚杆区的风险击球,在模拟你的挥杆动作以观察是否有来自喷水控制箱的干扰时,你的球杆意外地击中了松果,导致了你的球移动。你把球重置到了它被移动前的地方,但没有将旁边的松果放回去。风向改变了,所以你决定将球切到球道上,而不是向果岭打。你的下一杆(将球)打到了果岭上,再用两杆完成了这个洞。你这个洞的成绩是多少杆? 

(a) 5 
(b) 6 
(c) 7 
(d) 8  

正确答案 A 

将你在这里的实际击球杆数加起来得到5,这也正好是正确的答案(选项A)。 

这个问题中包含的事实要求你忽略两条重要的线索。 

第一,是你不小心导致你的球移动的时候。毫无疑问,是你的行为导致了你的球移动,所以规则9.4适用,你的球需要在击球前放置回原位。 

然而,要知道你是否有处罚,需要很好地理解规则9.4b的例外4是如何应用的。阅读两个重要的解析(解析9.4b/4和9.4b/5)会让你迅速上手,以确保你不会在自己的成绩里加上处罚,因为你的行为是在判断是否可以补救而采取 “合理行动时 ”发生的。 

第二是你是否需要把你的球旁边的松果放回去。这就把你带到了规则15.1a的例外1,其中指出,当一个球需要被放置回原位时,有些时候散置障碍物不能移除。但它也明确指出,该例外情况不适用于当球被移动时导致散置障碍物被移走。在本题的案例下,那个松果就是这样的情况。 

Hole 17 

Question: In which one of the following do you get the general penalty for not replacing your ball, when information concerning the ball’s movement only becomes known to you or your caddie after the ball has been played? 

(a) Your caddie marks the spot of your ball, lifts it and replaces it on the putting green. As your caddie is walking away and you are looking at your scorecard, neither of you notice that a gust of wind moved your ball a short distance. 

(b) While you are looking at your yardage book, your caddie is removing a gallery stake about 30 feet away from your ball. In removing the stake, the rope connected to it becomes loose, drops to the ground, and hits and moves your ball. Neither you nor your caddie were aware the ball moved. 

(c) After playing from the tee and while walking with your caddie to your ball, you are not aware a spectator had lifted your ball from the rough where it came to rest and tossed it into the fairway. 

(d) While your opponent is searching for your ball and without you or your caddie noticing, the opponent moved your ball a short distance. 

CORRECT ANSWER: B 

Hole 17 highlights a key part in the purpose statement of Rule 9: “players should take care when near any ball at rest, and a player who causes his or her ball to move … will normally get a penalty.” 

Further there are very few “hidden rules” in the Interpretations, noting our general messaging for their purpose is to provide guidance as to how to apply the Rules. Interpretation 9.2a/2 is a rare “rule maker” and it makes clear that if your (or your caddie’s) actions cause your ball to move, Rule 9.4 applies even if you do not have knowledge or virtually certainty of that occurrence. 

Armed with this important additional information, Hole 17 is pretty straightforward, noting that Option B is the only option in which you or your caddie were the cause of the movement. Not replacing before making your next stroke would earn you the general penalty. 

In all other options, because it is not known or virtually certain that your ball was moved when you made the next stroke, your ball is treated as having not moved and did not need to be replaced.  

问题:你或你的球童在打完球之后才知道球曾移动过的信息,在以下哪种情况下,你会因为没有将球放置回原位而受到一般性处罚?  

(a) 你的球童在果岭上标记了你的球位,拿起并将它放置回原位。当你的球童走开的时候,你正在看你的记分卡,你们都没有注意到一阵风把你的球移动了一小段距离。 

(b) 你正在看你的码数本,同时你的球童正在约30英尺之外移除一根围绳桩。在移开木桩的过程中,连接木桩的绳子松动了,掉到了地上,砸中并移动了你的球。你和你的球童都没有意识到球被移动了。 

(c) 从发球台发球后,你和你的球童走到你的球前,你们不知道有一个观众把你的球从它静止的长草里捡起来并扔到了球道上。 

(d) 你的对手正在寻找你的球,在你和你的球童没有注意到的情况下,对手将你的球移动了一小段距离。 

正确答案 B 

第17洞强调了规则9目的声明中一个关键部分:”球员位于任何静止中球附近时,都应该小心谨,通常情况下,如果球员导致自己的球移动……会受到处罚。” 

此外,在解析中有极个别的 “隐规则”,请注意我们想传递的整体信息是:它们(存在)的目的是为了提供如何应用规则的指导。解析9.2a/2是一个罕见的 “规则制定者”,它明确指出,如果你(或你的球童)的行为导致你的球移动,规则9.4适用,即使你不知道或不能几乎肯定该事件的发生。 

有了这些重要的补充信息,第17洞就非常直截了当了,注意到选项B是唯一一个你或你的球童导致了移动的选项。在进行下一次击球之前没有(把球)放置回原位将使你受到一般性处罚。 

在所有其他的选项中,由于在你进行下一次击球之时并不知道或不能几乎可以肯定你的球被移动了,你的球将被视为没有移动,不需要放置回原位。 

Hole 18 

Question: In which one of the following do you get one penalty stroke for lifting or moving your ball or ball-marker? 

(a) You mark the spot of and lift your ball from a bunker because it interfered with another player’s stance. The other player played and in doing so, worsened your lie, but did not move the ball-marker. You carefully try to re-create your original lie, but in doing so, you accidentally move the ball-marker. 

(b) Instead of using a coin, you mark the spot of your ball on the putting green with a tee and lift the ball. While another player’s ball is in motion, you lift the tee because you thought that the other player’s ball might hit it. 

(c) After the Committee has suspended play due to darkness, you mark the spot of your ball in tall rough with a tee and lift your ball. Prior to resuming play the next morning and while trying to relocate the tee, you accidentally kick the tee, moving it a short distance. 

(d) Your putt for a three stops just short of the hole and you believe your partner has a short putt left for a four. Frustrated, you swing your club at your ball and knock it off the putting green. Your partner misses his putt, taps-in and says, correctly, “that’s six.” You suddenly realize you were mistaken about your partner’s score, so you replace your ball next to the hole and hole out. 

CORRECT ANSWER: A or D 

Though we send our Short Course through multiple levels of review, both amongst rules team staff and some extraordinarily generous volunteers, Hole 18, unfortunately and apologetically, has one-and-a-half correct answers … when this was brought to our attention it immediately reminded us of a  phrase that the rules community often leans on in times like these: 

There are only two types of referees. Those who have made a mistake and those who will. We now place ourselves in the former group. 

While Option D clearly results in one penalty stroke under Rule 9.4 (because striking the ball in frustration was not an accident), our error was in leaving a key piece of information out of Option A – were you asked to lift your ball because it interfered with the other player? While we intended that answer to be yes, it’s not stated in the answer. As a result, both D and A were credited as correct answers. 

With that said, Option B was where we thought we would garner the most debate. In part because it  was a challenge simply to figure out which Rule applies. You did take a deliberate action to influence the movement of a ball in motion, and if you played the last round of the Short Course, you should be having some flashbacks to Rule 11. In Rule 11.3, the Exception allows any ball at rest and in play on the putting green to be lifted at any time, while ball-markers are specifically excluded. That action earns you a general penalty (loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play) under Rule 11.3 and with the question specifically asking in which of the Options do you get one penalty stroke, that would seem to exclude Option B. 

However, what about the penalty for lifting your ball-marker? Normally, that would be one-penalty stroke under Rule 9.7b, but you need to look at the totality of what has happened here and visit our good friend Rule 1.3c(4), which is keen on providing a quantity discount. That’s the case here, where your single act (lifting your tee) resulted in multiple breaches (Rule 9.7 and its one penalty stroke and Rule 11.3 and its general penalty) and only the higher-level penalty applies. 

Finally, in Option C, the fact that your tee is moved during a suspension of play does not change the outcome. Note that Rule 9.1 starts with a statement that all of Rule 9 applies both during a round and while play is stopped under Rule 5.7d. 

Rule 9.7 covers the movement of a ball-marker, which your tee is in this situation, and the Exception to Rule 9.7b notes that situations where you are not penalized for moving your ball also apply to your ball-marker. Looking back to Rule 9.4b, there is not penalty if your ball is accidentally moved during search, so there’s also no penalty here.  

问题:以下哪种情况下,拿起或移动你的球或球标会被罚一杆? 

(a) 你在沙坑中标记了你的球位并拿起了球,因为它妨碍了另一个球员的站位。那名球员打了球,令到你的球位恶化,但没有移动球标。你小心翼翼地试图重新恢复初始球位时不小心移动了球标。 

(b) 你没有使用硬币,而是在果岭上用一支球座标记了你的球位并拿起球。当另一位选手的球在运动中时,你拿起了这支球座,因为你认为那选手的球可能会撞到它。  

(c) 委员会因天黑而暂停比赛后,你用球座在高长草里标定了你的球位并拿起了你的球。第二天早上恢复比赛前,在试图重新找回那支球座的过程中,你不小心踢到了那支球座,使其移动了一段距离。 

(d) 你的第三杆推短了,球刚好停在洞口前。你以为你的伙伴剩下一个短推就可以用四杆完成该洞,你很沮丧地把球杆挥向你的球,把球磕出了果岭。你的伙伴没有推进,把球轻敲进洞后正确地说出“打了6杆”。你突然意识到你搞错了你伙伴的成绩,所以你把你的球重置到洞口旁边,然后击球进洞。  

正确答案 A或D 

 虽然我们的Short Course经过了多层的审阅,既包括规则小组的工作人员也包括一些非常慷慨的志愿者,但遗憾和抱歉的是,18号洞有一个半的正确答案……当这个问题引起我们注意时,它立即让我们想起了规则界在这种时候经常倚重的一句话: 

只有两种类型的裁判。那些已经犯错的人和那些将要犯错的人。我们现在把自己归入前一类。 

虽然,根据规则9.4,选项D明显会导致罚一杆(因为沮丧地击打球不是意外),但是我们的错误是在选项A中遗漏了一个关键信息–那位受到妨碍的球手叫你拿起球了吗?虽然我们希望这个回答是 “是”,但在答案中却没有说明。因此,D和A都被列为正确答案。 

按理说,选项B我们认为会引起最多的辩论。部分原因是,要弄清楚哪条规则适用,是一个挑战。你确实采取了一个故意的行动来影响运动中球的运动,如果你做过上一轮Short Course的话,你应该会对规则11有一些印象。在规则11.3中,例外允许任何在果岭上处于静止状态的球在任何时候被拿起,而球标则被明确排除。根据规则第11.3条,这种行为会使你受到一般性处罚(在比洞赛中输洞或在比杆赛中罚两杆),而问题中特别问到在哪个选项中你会得到罚一杆,这似乎排除了选项B。 

然而,对拿起球标的处罚是什么呢?通常情况下,根据规则9.7b,这会是罚一杆。但你需要看一下这里发生的全部情况,并访问我们的好朋友规则1.3c(4),它热衷于提供数量折扣。本题就是这种情况,你的单一行为(拿起你的球座)导致了多重违规行为(规则9.7及其罚一杆和规则11.3及其一般性处罚),这里只需采用较高级别的处罚。 

最后,在选项C中,你的球座是在比赛暂停期间被移动这一事实并不会改变结果。请注意,规则9.1一开始就说明,规则9的所有内容在一轮比赛期间和根据规则5.7d停止比赛期间都适用。 

规则9.7涵盖球标的移动,在本题情况下,你的球座就是球标,而规则9.7b的例外指出,移动你的球不受罚的情况也适用于你的球标。回过头来看规则9.4b,如果你的球在搜索过程中被意外移动是没有处罚的,所以这里也不会有处罚。
