Is it always your fault?


Whenever you have a **** round it’s the greenkeepers fault...


Good thing about golf that people forget, you don’t need to play the ball where it lies, take a drop add a stroke and move on..... simple really. Enough rules in golf to make it dare I say simpler for everyone.

The rules used to be simple, but they keep adding more. Yes, options can be good, but that's not simpler.

And what if the creek bed wasn't dry at the minute?
Yes, I appreciate there hasn't been any rain there in your area for some time, we've all read that, but it's a creek bed none the less.

Whose fault would it be then if you can't play your ball out of a hazard that has water in it?

 

So it is like this

Yes it is a dry at present but when it does finally rain again this creek will run for a couple of weeks and that is all....

It then becomes a grass jungle and the odds of finding your ball then lessen considerably...

It is only what was known as a water hazard in all honesty for a day or two after a major rain event, then it drops down to sweet fa flow and you finish up with a few small water holes and that is it......

Rest of the time it is a dry creek bed

Isn't the water irrelevant now. It seems to be a perfect candidate for a penalty area. So PA rules should apply.

That certainly clears things up now and I thank you for clarifying whose fault it is when you can't hit your ball out of there while there is water in there.

The rules used to be simple, but they keep adding more. Yes, options can be good, but that's not simpler.

Like back a very long time ago. The first set were in 1744, only 13 Rules.
“Most outdoor games—baseball, football,hockey,tennis,for example—are conducted on well defined playing fields, on which the conditions are pretty much duplicated whoever that sport is played. “
Further on—Otherwise it is difficult to imagine the tremendous variety of conditions, objects and circumstances with which the Rules must cope in their worldwide application to the game of golf.”
Quotes from THE PRINCIPLES BEHIND The Rules of Golf Richard S. Tufts As updated by William J Williams, Jr On the Basis of The Rules of Golf (2008-11)
Of course this little book is now outdated.
Maybe someone will do something in the future preserving in a way the great contribution originally made by Richard S. Tufts.

The R & A and USGA have done a tremendous job of simplifying both the Rules and Language effective 2019.
The Rules are not simple however it is not difficult to appreciate why.
