Interrupting a 3-Minute Search


Recommended Posts

If you forget where you found your ball, do you get more search time? (golf.com)

I didn't know the clock didn't get reset if you forget the location of your ball again. 

I will throw my hat or towel down near the ball so I don't forget the spot.

18.2a(1)/1 – Time Permitted for Search When Search Temporarily Interrupted

  • A player finds and identifies his or her ball in high rough after a two-minute search. The player leaves the area to get a club. When he or she returns, the ball cannot be found. The player has one minute to search before the ball becomes lost. The three-minute search time stopped when the ball was first found.

Yup. I lay my hat down next to it.
