NO PENALTY IN 2019

Golf can be a frustrating game at the best of times, but incurring a penalty stroke when you’ve

accidentally done something wrong seems very unfair, especially when that one stroke could be the

difference between getting a handicap cut or not.

A
Rules

Current Rules
Under the current Rules of Golf, if you accidentally nudge your ball while addressing it you

incur a one-stroke penalty and must replace it (18-2). The only exception relates to if it is

accidentally moved in the process of marking it. In this case, it must be replaced and there

is no penalty (20-1).

New Rules from 2019
The new proposed rule (13.1c) states there will no longer be a penalty for accidentally causing

your ball to move on the green and you must replace it on its original spot.
