Wind Rule – Ball Moving after Addressed

Posted July 10, 2015 in feel rules advanced

Rule 18-2b recently changed regarding the ball moving after address on the green. There is now an exception stating that if the ball moves after it has been addressed, and it is known that you did not cause the ball to move, you will no longer be penalized. For example, if a gust of wind moves the ball after you address it, there is no penalty and you will play the ball from its new position.
