RULES OF GOLF: WISDOM OF TRADITION AND GENTLEMANLY CHIC
If you have just started to learn Golf and do not yet know the rules, do not worry! The practical minimum coupled with club etiquette is usually stated on the player’s score card. But if your goal is not just participation, but a confident victory, you need to know the rules of the game of Golf by heart: for errors, penalty kicks are awarded, and in a match game you will have to concede a hole to the opposing side.
The essence of the game of Golf is reduced to three basic principles:
Play the field as it is.
Play the ball as it lies.
And if neither is possible, do it justice.
To change the disposition of the ball before hitting imposed a strict ban, that is, you can not push, correct, push or crush the grass, bend or break off the branches of shrubs. If the ball flew into an obstacle course or into a ditch with water, the rules of Golf allow you to touch the surrounding obstacles with your body or stick only at the time of the strike.
In the game on account of a violation is also recognized to hit the ball of another golfer who is already on the green. If the ball was moved by another participant in the game, the owner is recognized the right to correct it, but it is necessary to notify the referee and other golfers.
