2020 MGA Rules Quiz - Q20
20. A player hits his tee shot onto a parallel hole, which is marked by a natural boundary as internal out
of bounds. Unaware of this, the player proceeds to try and punch the ball back into the fairway of
the hole he is playing, but the ball carries too much speed and comes to rest out of bounds on the
other side of the fairway, which is marked with white stakes. The player returns to where his
previous stroke was made, on the parallel hole, and proceeds under stroke and distance. He takes 4
more strokes to complete the hole. Before teeing off the following hole, he reads on his Notice to
Players that the parallel hole is internal out of bounds. Unsure how to proceed he tells his fellow
players that he is just going to play that hole over again. He returns to the previous tee and plays
the hole in 5 strokes. After holing out, he tells a member of the Rules Committee what happened.
What is his score for the hole?
