Embedded or "Plugged" balls

In accordance with Rule 16.3, relief is allowed only when your ball is embedded in its own pitch mark in the general area. This includes the rough.

For reference, the general area is all areas of the course except:

  • (1) the teeing area you must play from in starting the hole you are playing,
  • (2) all penalty areas,
  • (3) all bunkers, and
  • (4) the putting green of the hole you are playing.
