### Which of the following would not be considered a loose impediment?

• A.

Twig

• B.

Pine Cone

• C.

Growing Grass

• D.

Branch

C. Growing Grass
Explanation

Growing grass, on the other hand, is a living and growing part of the environment and would not be classified as a loose impediment.

### In stroke play, the person furthest from the hole always play first.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
In stroke play, the person furthest from the hole always plays first because it helps to maintain a steady pace of play on the golf course. By having the person farthest from the hole play first, it reduces the time spent waiting for other players to take their shots. This ensures that the game progresses smoothly and efficiently.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### A player hits a ball out of bounds. . .

• A.

The player must re-hit the shot from the previous position.

• B.

Drop the ball within 2 club lengths from where the ball crossed the line.

• C.

Play the ball from its current position.

B. Drop the ball within 2 club lengths from where the ball crossed the line.
Explanation
When a player hits a ball out of bounds, they are required to drop the ball within 2 club lengths from where the ball crossed the line. This is a rule in golf known as the "stroke and distance" penalty. By dropping the ball within 2 club lengths, the player is given an opportunity to continue play without incurring a further penalty. This rule ensures that players are penalized for hitting the ball out of bounds, but also allows them to continue the game without having to replay the shot from the previous position.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### You may thouch the sand with your club if your ball is in the bunker.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
According to the rules of golf, touching the sand with the club before making a stroke in a bunker is generally not allowed. This is considered a penalty and can result in a loss of strokes. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Loose impediments may only be lifted in a bunker or hazard.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Loose impediments may be lifted anywhere on the golf course, not just in a bunker or hazard. This means that players are allowed to remove loose natural objects like leaves, twigs, or stones that might interfere with their shot, regardless of the location on the course. Therefore, the statement "Loose impediments may only be lifted in a bunker or hazard" is incorrect.
