R&A Decisions on the Rules of Golf

1-1/4
Player Discovers Own Ball Is in Hole After Playing Wrong Ball

A player played to a blind green and putted what he thought was his ball. He then discovered that his own ball was in the hole and that the ball he had putted was a wrong ball.
What is the ruling?

Since the play of the hole was completed when the original ball was holed (Rule 1-1), the player was not in breach of Rule 15 for subsequently playing a wrong ball.

1-4/2
Ball Adhering to Face of Club After Stroke

A player plays a stroke from wet sand or soil and the ball adheres to the face of the club. What is the ruling?

In equity (Rule 1-4), the ball should be dropped, without penalty, as near as possible to the spot where the club was when the ball stuck to it. But see also Decision 14-4/1.


Milestones

1851
With the introduction of the gutta percha ball a new rule provided that if a ball broke up in flight another ball could be dropped without penalty where the largest piece was found.
