Golf's Most Obscure Rules - The game of golf has those obscure rules that require their own interpreter. We all pretty much know the basics. Three off the tee if you hook your Titleist into the drink. Play it as it lies (generally). Only 14 clubs in the bag and so on. However, the rules of golf, when actually read, resemble something out of an official piece of legislation or city by-law. They don't always make sense and quite often don't appeal to reason. There are many obscure and strange rules that you just might want to keep an eye on next time you have a side bet with a buddy. Here are my top 10 Obscure Rules of Golf: (all referenced from the USGA).
10) Decision (4-3/7) states that a golfer may replace a club that breaks when broken during the normal course of play or leaned on. If you're breaking clubs while leaning on them, you've got more problems than just a bent 5 iron.

The Ultimate Guide to Golf Golf's Most Obscure Rules
The game of golf has those obscure rules that require their own interpreter. We all prettymuch know the basics. Three off the tee if you hook your Titleist into the drink. Play it asit lies (generally). Only 14 clubs in the bag and so on. However, the rules of golf, whenactually read, resemble something out of an official piece of legislation or city by-law.They don't always make sense and quite often don't appeal to reason. There are manyobscure and strange rules that you just might want to keep an eye on next time youhave a side bet with a buddy. Here are my top 10 Obscure Rules of Golf: (all referencedfrom the USGA).10) Decision (4-3/7) states that a golfer may replace a club that breaks when brokenduring the normal course of play or leaned on. If you're breaking clubs while leaning onthem, you've got more problems than just a bent 5 iron.9) If you happen to hit your tee shot into the St. Lawrence River, and your ball begins tomove, Rule 14-6 (Ball Moving in Water) states that you may make a stroke at themoving ball but you are not permitted to delay making your stroke in order to allow forthe current to improve your ball position or lie. Hit it and get out...or better yet just takethe drop.8) You crack open the $60.00 box of Pro V's and pull out a number 1. You tee it up andput it in the same bunker as one of your playing partners. You enter the bunker only tofind out that your partner has also played a Pro V number 1 and neither of you has putidentifying marks on your ball. Rule 12-2 states that both balls are now considered lostand that both players are penalized a stroke and must go back and hit their third shotfrom the tee. (You can pick up your brand new ball because it's not really lost).7) It's okay to hit other players on the course but Rule 19-2b states that if a golfer hitshimself with his own ball during the course of play, a two-stroke penalty is administered.Wait until after the stroke is complete to beat yourself up over it.6) Got the pulls or shanks? No problem, Rule 19-3/1 stipulates that if a player happensto hit his opponent, who is standing out of the way and out of bounds, with his shot andthe ball comes to rest out of bounds, there shall be no penalty and the player is entitledto replay his shot. Proper etiquette however states that the term 'fore' shall be used inorder to warn the opponent of the impending floggin' to his noggin.5) According to USGA definitions, holes made by burrowing animals such as groundhogsor rabbits are considered abnormal ground conditions and are subject to relief. However,holes made by dogs (or other non-burrowing animals) are not considered abnormal andtherefore, no relief is available. Call in the local CSI unit to actually find the culprit of thehole before continuing.4) According to Rule 2-1/2 you can actually play a hole and not even count a stroke! Aplayer entitled to a two-handicap on a par 3 can get a 0 or -1 if he gets a 2 or an ace.Beware the sandbagger.3) Rule 8-1/15 states that a player's caddie is well within the rules to take a club andswing it in order to show the player how to play the shot. Unless your caddie is Tiger
