John, when is there "free relief" from loose impediments?

I will usually announce my intention to Identify my ball and mark it.

That's scummy, and I'd call you out on that if you're doing that regularly.

See 15.1a Exception 1:


Exception 1 – Removing Loose Impediment Where Ball Must Be Replaced: Before replacing a ball that was lifted or moved from anywhere except the putting green:

  • A player must not deliberately remove a loose impediment that, if moved when the ball was at rest, would have been likely to have caused the ball to move.

  • If the player does so, he or she gets one penalty stroke, but the removed loose impediment does not need to be replaced.

This exception applies both during a round and while play is stopped under Rule 5.7a. It does not apply to a loose impediment that is removed as a result of marking the spot of a ball, or lifting, moving or replacing a ball or causing a ball to move.


P.S. To iterate upon the "announce my intention to identify a ball," the rule says "If a ball might be a player’s ball but cannot be identified as it lies:". That's why it's scummy - it's scummy to put your hands on your ball under the false pretense that it's to identify it.

Another Question. When I need to move a loose impediment?
I will usually announce my intention to Identify my ball and mark it.
Then is it OK to remove any loose objects before replacing my ball back to it's original position?

The other exception to the rule: Preferred lies. Some areas have extended PL seasons. Check your calendar. As soon as the course changes to "summer rules" you're out of luck.

John seems to have gotten himself turned around somewhere.

Make sure, @fredf, when you try to tag someone that you actually do it. @Club Rat - you have to choose their name from the small popup. https://thesandtrap.com/how-to/mention-members

Yes, I tried that and when that black box with the name inside came up I couldn't get my cursor to reappear in the writing area - it was all frozen. And then I repeated it and had the same experience, so I'm not sure what I was doing wrong. Perhaps if I write the message first and then go back to the top and put the @name in?

Dunno, @fredf, works for everyone else. You may have just had to click the name. On a computer I can use the arrow keys and the return key. On a phone, my finger, of course.

    • The movie "Grease" is still one of my favorite of all time greats.
    • Slow swing speed here, so lots of headcovers: Driver - 10.5* 5W - 18* 9W - 23* 6H (5i replacement) - 27* 7H (6i replacement) - 30* The gapping from 5W to 7H is about 10 yards per club, so it works well for me.
    • I have a food dehydrator. I bought extra racks for it, too. It takes a bit of time so to me it’s not worth doing in small batches.
    • My driver is a Titleist 913D3, and beyond that my two longest clubs are the matching 4-wood, 17 degree standard bumped down to 16.25 degrees.  And then a 4i.    I used to have the 3-wood in the bag that matches the woods, but the 4-wood has a smaller head which I prefer hitting off the ground.   When it's wet/rainy conditions I swap in a hybrid and take out a 64 degree wedge that I carry for firmer conditions.   That makes the hybrid the second longest after the 4-wood.
