Decision 27/8             Ball Found After Search Exceeding Five Minutes Is Then Played

A player searches for his ball for five minutes and does not find it. He continues to search, finds his ball and plays it. What is the ruling?

•  The ball was lost and therefore out of play when the five minute period allowed for search expired – see Definitions of “Ball in Play” and “Lost Ball”.
•   When the player played a stroke with the ball out of play, he played a wrong ball – see Definition of “Wrong Ball” – and incurred a penalty of loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play – Rule 15-3.
•   In stroke play, he was disqualified if he did not correct the error by proceeding under Rule27-1 before playing from the next tee – Rule 15-3b.
