During Gameplay: Accidentally Hitting Your Partner's Ball

In the event of accidental contact with your partner's ball, here's the recommended course of action:

  1. Review Video Footage:

    • If this occurs, review the video footage to confirm the incident.
  2. Two-Stroke Penalty:

    • If the video clearly shows the accidental hit, it is subject to a two-stroke penalty.
  3. Player Responsibility:

    • The player responsible for the accidental hit should promptly inform the Rules Committee.
  4. Providing a Time Stamp:

    • For efficiency in review, consider providing a time stamp indicating when the incident occurs in the video.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
