Ask Linda #1063-Ball hits movable obstruction
Yesterday I was playing the 18th hole where was hitting my 2nd shot to the par 4 from the middle of the fairway. I had around 85 yards left to the green. I play links golf, so chose to bump and run this... My ball was heading for the green when it hit a small 6"x6" "trollies this way" sign. It could be moved as it’s not part of the course, but as I was 85 yards away I didn’t expect to hit it. Do you get to take the shot again? Thanks
Lou from South Shields, England
Sorry, Lou. There are no “do overs” when your ball hits a movable obstruction. This is just bad luck. You must play the ball as it lies.
