    The 5 is correct, but the other guy would have a 6. He incurs a two stroke penalty for teeing outside the tee grounds.

      Jeremy you are incorrect. Hint: You would be correct if your opponent was a competitor and he corrected his error by teeing off inside the teeing ground.

      Tim you are incorrect.

  5. Tim Kruse

    How about, you win, he is DQ’ed since he finished the hole, withoput correcting the error.

  6. Tim Kruse

    Okay I looked it up and think I have it. You are officially 1 down in the match. You could have made him replay the shot from the tee without penalty but since you allowed him to finish the hole, he wins it.

      Congratulations Tim! That is correct.

      11-4. Playing from Outside Teeing Ground a. Match Play
      If a player, when starting a hole, plays a ball from outside the teeing ground, there is no penalty, but the opponent may immediately require the player to cancel the stroke and play a ball from within the teeing ground.
