### While putting a player hits the flagstick laying on the ground, they incur a 2 stroke penalty?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When a player hits the flagstick while putting, they incur a 2 stroke penalty. This is because according to the Rules of Golf, Rule 17.1d, if a player's ball strikes the flagstick when it is not attended or removed, the player incurs a penalty of 2 strokes. This rule is in place to ensure fair play and prevent any potential advantage gained by hitting the flagstick.

Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above" because all of these options are permissible when dealing with a lateral water hazard.

True

• B.

False

Explanation
According to the rules of golf, players are allowed to clean their ball after it has been marked and lifted on the putting green.

However, it is important to note that cleaning the ball is only permitted on the putting green and not on any other part of the course.

### When you hit out of bounds you can play your next ball from where it crossed the out of bounds markers, with no penalty.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
If a player hits a ball out of bounds the player incurs a one stroke penalty and must hit from the location the original shot was hit (this is called "stroke and distance") - so if a tee shot goes out of bounds the player must re-hit from the tee - this would be their third shot!

### What color are the line and stakes used to indicate a lateral water hazard?

• A.

Yellow

• B.

Red

• C.

White

B. Red
Explanation
The line and stakes used to indicate a lateral water hazard are red. This color is chosen to clearly mark the boundaries of the hazard and differentiate it from other areas on the golf course. Red is a commonly used color to indicate potential danger or hazards in various contexts, and in golf, it signifies that the area is a lateral water hazard. Golfers should be aware of these hazards and take the appropriate actions when their ball lands in or near them.

A natural object (like a stick or stone) that is not growing or sticking to the ball

• B.

• C.

• D.

Neither (a) or (b)

A. A natural object (like a stick or stone) that is not growing or sticking to the ball
Explanation
A loose impediment refers to a natural object such as a stick or stone that is not attached to the ball and is not growing. This means that it can be easily moved or removed without penalty during a game. Artificial objects like roads or sprinklers are not considered loose impediments as they are not natural objects. Therefore, the correct answer is (a) a natural object (like a stick or stone) that is not growing or sticking to the ball.
