Teeing the Ball Everywhere!


Recommended Posts

We play with a guy that will tee up his ball anywhere he can.  Even in the bunker!  Before you start flaming him, he admits it, he doesn't keep score, and he's just having fun.  So we're good with it.

However we are curious if there is a specific rule governing this.  We know the rules about improving the lie, but what about teeing it up?

I found a lot of references about Tee Golf, which I never heard of.  Some variation of real golf.  I did find quite a few places that said you can't do it.  But no specific rule

6.2 covers the the teeing area rules and specifically states the ball may be played off a tee.

Teeing up a ball in any other area of the course is covered under 9.4b.
