RULE OF THE MONTH -- 'Playing from Outside Teeing Ground'
Playing outside the teeing ground can mean teeing off from the incorrect tee box on the correct hole, teeing off from in front of the tees on the correct hole, or teeing off on the wrong hole.
Match Play -- If a player, when starting a hole, plays a ball from outside the teeing ground, there is no penalty, but the opponent may immediately require the player to cancel the stroke and play a ball from within the teeing ground. (Note - the opponent can require you to play the original shot.)
Stroke Play -- Is more involved. If a competitor, when starting a hole, plays a ball from outside the teeing ground, she incurs a penalty of 2 strokes and must then play a ball from within the teeing ground. If the competitor who teed off from outside the proper teeing area holes out, and then makes a stroke from the next teeing ground without first correcting her mistake she is disqualified. The stroke from outside the teeing ground and any subsequent strokes by the competitor on the hole prior to her correction of the mistake do not count in her score.
