Golf’s New Rules (2019): Where a Dropped Ball Must Come to Rest


In the 2019 Rules, when dropping in taking free relief or penalty relief… your ball must be dropped in the defined relief area, and it must come to rest in there, too. Most of the time with the knee height dropping procedure, that will happen on your first drop. When it doesn’t, drop a second time. If that drop doesn’t stay within the relief area either… place a ball where your second drop first touched the ground.
