Rule 28 Unplayable Lie

If you find yourself anywhere on the course (other than a water hazard) you may declare your ball "unplayable". You then have three options when selecting your relief:

1. You can go back to the point where you last played the original ball.

2. You can drop the ball within a distance of two club lengths of the ball's last resting place.

3. You can drop the ball any distance behind the point where the ball originally lay, keeping that spot directly between you and the hole.

If you ball is declared unplayable, it costs you one stroke. If you do not apply the above rules correctly you will suffer and additional two stroke penalty.
