Rule of the week 

Below was last week's rule explanation. The correct answer was A


Such action would be a breach of Rule 16-1c since repair of spike marks in the vicinity of the hole might assist the player in his subsequent play of the hole.

New rule of the week

A player plays from the teeing ground, searches for his ball briefly and then goes back and tees another ball. Before he plays the teed ball, and with-in the five minutes search period, the original ball is found. What is the ruling?

A - The teed ball was in play and the original ball was lost.
B - The player must disregard the original ball and the stroke made with it and continue with the teed ball with no penalty. His next stroke will be his first.
C - The player may continue with the original ball.
