PostSubject: Do you play preferred lie during rainy days?   Thu Oct 11, 2012 5:14 pm

I was having a game with my usual kakis recently and the golf course was wet and soggy from the rain during previous night. I suggested to play preferred lie but none of them wanted to.

I notice on tour if the course is wet they will play preferred lie where players can mark, pick up, clean and place ball within 1 club length on fairways.

I want to find out if it's an uncommon practice during social games.

If everyone agree, why not. It is fair as everyone get the privilege.

My kakis are not big betters. We just play loser pay for food and drinks after the game.

We normally agree on preferred lie if the ground is wet.

So what happened if your ball lands in the bunker and its flooded? Do you all play as it lies?

No. They allow relief as per casual water ruling but refuse to allow me to clean mud off my ball which was on the fairway which will be allowed if playing preferred lie.

There are rules for casual water, plugged balls, and flooded bunkers.

Embedded (plugged) ball:

No, though I suspect that we would need to?

Wow, your kakis so pro ah? Must play as it lies? Why got fun like that? But then all will be playing in the same condition, so makes no difference really.

Just play as it lies for social golf bah.

Adds more fun or frustrations, depends on how you look at it.

We always play automatic game. cheers Meaning, whenever ball is plug in fairway or rough (no need for rain) it's free lift and cleaning ball until shiok shiok, cajole it then place the ball. Whenever there is dampness on fairway where you can see water underneath your ball we also allow free lift and cleaning ball until you shiok and place the ball after you comfort your ball to behave. We also allow to lift as far as back to where the ground is dry. That's how we enjoy the game.Laughing

There is a huge difference between Casual and Causal.

Many Thanks.

Normally i play preferred lie when ground is a condition like you mention, or even if I'm in someone elses divot (hate it when that happens).

So when it's a friendly game, so i'll just ask my flightmates before doing so.

More often than not, they'll say GO AHEAD cheers

Oh yeah. Ask your flight mates try hitting from the puddle of water in the bunkers (in malaysia).
