The first season under the new 2019 Rules of Golf is nearing completion and we thought it was a good time for a brief review. We've seen some confusion regarding penalty areas and lost balls. All golfers should have noticed by now that the right side of the 10th fairway is a red-staked penalty area instead of a white-staked out-of-bounds. If a shot goes into the penalty area, the golfer now has all the relief options that were previously only available for balls in a water hazard. The player may still take stroke-and-distance relief and re-hit the previous shot, but most players will take lateral relief, within two club-lengths of the "reference point", no closer to the hole. The problem on the 10th hole is determining the "reference point". You may not actually see the point where the ball crossed the penalty area line. According to the rules, the player may consult with others but it is the player's own reasonable judgment that must be accepted as the "reference point." So, if you're ball flies to the right off the 10th tee, keep a an eye on where you think it would have crossed the line even if you don't see it or can't find it.
You have to know or be "virtually certain" that a ball is in a penalty area before you can get relief under this rule. If there's any chance that the ball is lost outside the penalty area, you must treat it as a lost ball and you must take stroke-and-distance relief. For example, if you yank a long drive to the left off the 6th tee, you may think the ball is in the penalty area in front of the first tee. But unless someone saw the ball enter the penalty area, you can't know or be "virtually certain" since the ball may have glanced off a tree or stopped in the rough. In this case the only way to know if it's in the penalty area is to find the ball. If you can't find it after the three minutes allowed, you'll have to go back and take stroke-and-distance relief.
