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
- Difference between “playing a ball” and “putting a ball into play”
