  Path on the right

You can take a free drop from the path on the right of this hole.
First determine the nearest point of relief.

  How to determine the nearest point of relief

  • The nearest point of relief cannot be in a hazard or on a putting green (rule 24-2b), but it can be in bushes, trees or undergrowth.
  • Note; the nearest point of relief is not necessarily the side of the hazard which is nearest to the ball.
  • To determine where it is, select the club you are likely to hit next.
  • Now take up a stance on one side of the hazard where your feet are clear of the hazard, this will differ for left and right handed players.
  • Mark the spot where the ball would lie if you took up this stance.
  • Do the same on the other side of the hazard.
  • Identify which of these two markers is closest to where your ball lies.
  • This is the nearest point of relief.

You can now take a free drop from this spot. See Hole 1 for advice on how to take a free drop.
