Essential Nuances

In addition to the precise Definitions and Rules there are a number of essential nuances of the Rules that have the ability to cause great complexities for a student of the Rules. Thus, he may consider he has an understanding of some concept in the Rules and then find out that he has ignored a vital part of a Definition or Rule as its association to another part was vague.

The watch list of nuances:

  • Match play penalties require a claim
  • Intent-based Rules vs. outcome-based Rules
  • Being unaware sometimes results in no penalty to the player
  • Interrelationships
  • Difference between “playing a ball” and “putting a ball into play”
