Plugged in the Rough

Plugged in the RoughPlugged lie in the rough

The current wet weather and winter conditions mean we are playing preferred lies and ’embedded balls’ in the rough. In layman’s terms this means that a player with a ball plugged in the rough and still in the original hole can take free relief. The procedure is
1. Inform your playing partner
2. Mark the ball
3. Pick and clean
4. Drop (shoulder height) no nearer hole.
You must never, ever just roll it out of the pitch mark .. the penalty would be 2 strokes.
