Rule of Week
Immovable obstruction: So you have hit your ball right behind a park bench that is permanently affixed (immovable obstruction). The bench is between you and your desired target. What are your options?
- Free relief is granted for an immovable obstruction (Rule 24-2)
- Nearest point of relief is the nearest point where you no longer have interference from the obstruction (stance, lie and area of swing)
- Drop within one club-length of the nearest point of relief (no closer to the hole)
Of course your other option is to play the ball where it lies.
