MGA 2017 Q12

MGA 2017 Q12

Postby Doug » Thu Feb 02, 2017 9:01 am

12. A player’s second shot comes to rest in the rough under low hanging branches of a tree. He fairly takes his stance, grounds his club behind the ball and begins his backswing, causing the ball to move downward. His club becomes entangled in a branch that impedes his backswing. Visibly frustrated, he forcefully continues his backswing, breaking the branch in the process.
He then makes his stroke, breaking several additional branches and completely missing his ball but significantly improving the area of his next intended swing. He then comments to a fellow–competitor, “I knew I would probably miss the ball but at least I made my next shot easier." His next shot is indeed free from interference by the tree and reaches the putting green. He then holes out in two additional strokes.

His score for the hole is:
A) 6
B) 7
C) 8
D) 9

I think the only penalty he has incurred is for causing his ball in play to move (18-2). Since this occurred after he began his backswing and he continued and made the stroke, it's a one stroke penalty. Score = 7.
