Rule of the Day

25-1b/22 Cast of Burrowing Animal Interferes with Sideways Stroke; When Relief Granted

A ball is behind a tree so that a sideways stroke is the only reasonable stroke for the player. However, a cast made by a burrowing animal interferes with the backswing for a sideways stroke. Is the player entitled to relief under Rule 25-1b?

Yes, and if relief gets the player out from behind the tree, he is entitled to play towards the green.

Two-Time U.S. Amateur Public Links Champion,Louisville native Jodie Mudd became the first player in 19 years to successfully defend his U.S. Amateur Public Links title. A two-time Kentucky Amateur champion, Mudd gained the national spotlight in 1980 with his 9-and-8 victory over Richard Gordon in the APL at Edgewood Tahoe G.C. The following year, Mudd survived several close calls to defeat Billy Tuten, 3 and 2, at the Masters Course at Bear Creek Golf World. Mudd’s older brother, Eddie, won the U.S. Amateur Public Links in 1976. His father, Edward Mudd, Jr., served on the USGA’s Public Links committee for more than a decade.
