So you think the definition of a stroke should be different for when the ball is moving and when it isn't?
You are welcome to think that but that doesn't make you right. The rules currently only offer one definition of what constitutes a stroke and they make no mention of the status of the ball when doing so.
Please feel free to do this all you like. I could not care less how many players do this during a round because the 2 stroke penalty is more than enough to make it not a feasible strategy.
In my examples, the ball is moving each time a stroke is made so I did not assert the definition of a stroke should be changed. My distinction is that if you address a stationary ball but strike it after it starts moving then status quo BUT if you walk up to a moving ball and hit it, you should be DQ'd.
That is what I believe the rule should be. If the ruling on Phil is correct, it should be changed imho.
