Highlights: Wedged putts do NOT count if 'witnessed' to have wedged in cage from the outside.
TD- Optional Drop-Zone for lost discs.
Player can't use first shot when throwing a provisional, the provisional shot is the correct lie (as I read it, a bit confusing).
Obstacle to stance- can move a stick in your stance if part of it extends in front of your lie now.
There is no legal throw with a release while the player is in the air with no ground contact.
But the rule does allow casual obstacles in the player's run-up to be (re)moved on a putt jump. Note that sticks/branches and leaves can be moved but not rocks or acorns based on the official wording:
803.05B. Casual Obstacles to a Stance: A player may obtain relief only from the following obstacles that are in the stance or run-up area: casual water, loose leaves or debris, broken branches no longer connected to a tree, motor vehicles, harmful insects or animals, players' equipment, people, or any item or area specifically designated by the director before the round.
This discussion as been a good read.
For one.. to hear everyone's view on the new rule changes and two.. to hear different scenarios where I might see these calls come into play. I appreciate it.
