A NEW RULE EXPLAINED

Penalty Areas:

In the past, the rules allowed relief with penalty when a ball was in a “water hazard” (marked yellow) or a “lateral water hazard” (marked red). 

 
Under the new Rules, “Water hazards” will be superseded by the expanded concept of penalty areas” (there will be yellow and red penalty areas), and Rule 17 will provide the same basic options for relief that exist under the current Rules: 
- A penalty area will include both (1) all areas currently defined in the Rules as a water hazard or lateral water hazard and (2) any other areas the Committee chooses to define as penalty areas (with recommended guidelines to be provided in the guidebook). 
- Penalty areas may therefore include areas such as deserts, jungles, lava rock fields, etc. 
- The two types of penalty areas will be known by the color of their marking: red penalty areas (today called lateral water hazards) and yellow penalty areas (today called water hazards); and Committees will be given the discretion to mark all penalty areas as red so that lateral relief will always be allowed. 
- The term “hazard” will no longer be used in the Rules. 
Shot Options when your ball lands in a Penalty Area
   You may either:
1.  Play the ball as it lies without penalty, under the same rules that apply to a ball in the general area (which means there are no special Rules limiting how a ball may be played, - Yes, you can ground your club.
 2.  Play a ball from outside the penalty area and incurring the penalty in one of the following ways:
a.  Stroke and Distance - You may play the original ball or another ball from where the previous stroke was made (for one penalty stroke).
b.  Back-On-The-Line Relief - You may drop the ball or another ball in a relief area (based on one club length of the longest club in your bag not including your putter) that is based on a reference line going straight back from the hole through the estimated point where the original ball last crossed the edge of the penalty area (for one penalty stroke).
3.  Lateral Relief (Only for Red Penalty Area) - From the estimated point where the original ball last crossed the edge of the penalty, take relief based on two club lengths of the longest club in your bag not including your putter (for one penalty stroke).
4.  If there is a drop area provided, you can play from the drop area. (For one penalty stroke).
