Ask Linda #1400-Player’s stroke canceled in foursomes (alternate shot)
I recently played on a course that has a wire around the greens to prevent cattle from walking onto the greens. The Local Rule is that if a player hits this wire then they must take the shot again with no penalty. The question is, in foursome match play, does Player A take the shot or does his partner, Player B, who hit the shot that struck the wire, take the shot again.

In foursomes (alternate shot), if a stroke is canceled and must be replayed, the player who hit the canceled stroke will repeat the shot. Since Player B’s ball hit the wire, Player B will repeat his shot.
