Ask Linda #1519a-Follow-up question to #1519
Just to clarify –
If my ball is off the green and I do not ask my opponent, whose ball is close to mine on the fairway to lift her ball and I strike her ball, do I incur a penalty shot?
Lulu from Belfast
If the two balls are so close together that it is reasonable to expect that your stroke will move your opponent’s ball, you will incur a one-stroke penalty if your stroke moves her ball. Your opponent must replace her ball [Decision 18-3b/1].
