What are the most stupid rules in golf ?

Recommended Posts

Most of the Rules of Golf are OK, it is the procedure that makes life difficult.

My pet hate is having to drop in a bunker (under a Rule) because the ball plugs when it is soft or wet sand.

The first part of the article also got me thinking, take the Exception in Rule 25...............

"Exception: A player may not take relief under this Rule if (a) interference by anything other than an abnormal ground condition makes the stroke clearly impracticable or (b) interference by an abnormal ground condition would occur only through use of a clearly unreasonable stroke or an unnecessarily abnormal stance, swing or direction of play.

.......................... wouldn't this mean the player couldn't do as he did?

Sorry. just reread the article.

It is very deficient in information needed to make a ruling but it is not enough to be able to reach the ball with his club. He has to be able to make a stroke.
