Rule of the week

Hi all I just thought I'd start a new topic of rule of the week I will try to make sure I put a new one up every week. Enjoy

Question: "Do I need to mark the original position of my ball before taking relief from a situation under the Rules?"

Answer: "No. It is always advisable to mark the original position of the ball when taking relief, but there is no obligation on the player to do so."

Great idea! Rules are always useful. Rules keep you from being penalized for ignorance and help you maintain full awareness of the legality of your competitor's actions.

Answer: "No. It is always advisable to mark the original position of the ball when taking relief, but there is no obligation on the player to do so."
Just to add a bit of discussion to this...

1. Can anyone state why it might be advisable to mark before lifting the ball from it's original lie?

2. Are there any other possibilities that you should take into consideration before lifting the ball?

1. If your ball interferes with another player's ball you wouldn't be taking relief, you be marking and lifting to give him relief, and then in that case you would have to mark so that you could replace your ball. But there is one really good reason for marking your ball before you lift it when you are taking relief, and it can be necessary whether you are getting free relief or taking a penalty drop. Still looking for that one.

2. I was looking for some possible consequences of lifting your ball prematurely when taking free relief, not just the situation.

It might be adviseable to mark your ball before lifting it just in case you have mistaking thought that you are in a relief zone when you may not be. This is just a thought I am not sure about it though
