18/2 Ball Oscillates During Address Q.In addressing the ball, a player accidentally causes the ball to oscillate, but it returns to its original position. Has the ball "moved"? A.No. In a recent tournament, my ball was on the collar. It was close enough that the longer grass beyond the collar somewhat interfered with my intended stroke using my putter. I stupidly decided to a. not blade a wedge and b. make a practice stroke over the top of the ball. In making the practice stroke I slightly touched the ball. It visibly rocked but remained where it sat originally. I explained to my fellow competitors that I had not been attempting to hit the ball so there had been no "stroke". Further, as the ball had not moved from its original position, my thought was the "oscillation" Decision applied. They agreed. We played on. Did we get it right?
