There are no referees in golf. It is a ‘gentleman’s sport’ in which golfers play by following the rules themselves. Golf rules are ‘helpers’ created to aid play. If you know it well and use it appropriately, it can be of great help in managing your score. These are golf rules that weekend golfers must know.

A mistake on the tee shot became an obstacle to winning for the first time in his life. The unlucky protagonist is long hitter Lee Seung-taek. He is a player who debuted on the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Tour in 2015. With a strong lower body, a driver shot that goes over 300 yards is a skill. He also has the nickname ‘Brown Bear’.

Seungtaek Lee had the opportunity to win the KPGA Founders Cup (total prize money of 700 million won), which ended on the 21st at Hanmac Country Club (par 72, par 7,265 yards) in Yecheon, Gyeongsangbuk-do. In the final 4th round, he hit 7 under par, tying with Go Gun-taek. In the overtime match held at the 18th hole (par 5), it was expected that Lee Seung-taek would have the advantage as he could easily get 2-on. But he didn’t listen to his tee shot. He wound to the left and flew into the mountains.

Seungtaek Lee hit a provisional ball because there was concern about a lost ball. He was so nervous. Coincidentally, the first, second, and third provisional balls also flew to strange places. Seungtaek Lee worked hard to find the first pitch. If he couldn’t find the ball, he was in danger of losing the championship trophy to Go Gun-taek.

Fortunately, the game committee found Seungtaek Lee’s first pitch. He couldn’t hit the pin, but he was able to get it out. Play continued where the ball was placed without penalty. He managed to lay up the ball into the fairway and put his third shot on the green, but missed the par putt from about 1.5 meters and failed to win.

Even if he finds the first ball, if the conditions are such that he cannot hit it, he can declare the ball unplayable. After one penalty stroke, you can choose to drop within two clubs of the ball. If the place to drop is difficult, you should go straight to the back and take a shot. If that is not easy, you must return to the place where you teed off and continue playing.
