In the event of accidental contact with your partner's ball, here's the recommended course of action:
Review Video Footage:
- If this occurs, review the video footage to confirm the incident.
- If the video clearly shows the accidental hit, it is subject to a two-stroke penalty.
- The player responsible for the accidental hit should promptly inform the Rules Committee.
Providing a Time Stamp:
- For efficiency in review, consider providing a time stamp indicating when the incident occurs in the video.
Player Whose Ball Was Hit:
- The player whose ball was inadvertently struck should select "REHIT" (+1 stroke added) and proceed to play the ball from its original position.
Rules Committee Notification:
- The Rules Committee must be informed of the incident. They will then subtract one stroke from the affected player's score for that particular hole.
By following these steps, you'll ensure a fair resolution to the accidental ball contact. If you have any further questions or need additional guidance, feel free to contact us.
