  • On the putting surface, the player who is the farthest from the hole shall putt first until all balls are in the hole.
  • A ball, which is declared unplayable or is unplayable in a water hazard, shall be played out two club lengths from the hazard no nearer the hole, with a one-stroke penalty.
  • Player will be given one club length relief without penalty from a lie that is declared dangerous to the player or his clubs by his playing partner(s).
