Current at my Club.
Match Play
A successfully claims Hole from opponent for hitting off from outside the teeing ground.

Later when B hits tee shot OOB claims hole.

A Wins match 2 Up.

When asked about these Rules later says all is good with her knowledge of Rules. B is a novice and just wonders.

When told by Captain that both claims were wrong says well on Ball hit OOB the Rule must have changed.

I checked ..in late 1700's it was loss of hole.

Few variations then penalty consistently same as stroke since 1820.

Is reincarnation possible.

What I know is a lot of people give in to bullshit if said confidently with authority.

Sometimes bullshit baffles brains and when challenged they get in a huff and claim they were mistaken. It does make it hard for a novice to challenge a ruling if they are unsure and feeling pressure in a match play situation.

So how old did you say the two players are, 200 or 300 hundreds years old ?

It's the oral tradition - handed down by word of mouth from generation unto generation.
