Due to very wet course conditions a temporary Local Rule has been introduced, permitting players to mark and place their ball within the length of their score card (six inches), if their ball lies on a closely mown area through the green. Rosaleen knocks down her drive but it comes to rest on the closely mown walkway through the area of rough from the teeing ground to the fairway. She marks and picks-up her ball, cleans it and replaces it almost a club-length from where she picked it up. She plays a good shot to the right side of the fairway and again marks, lifts and cleans her ball, placing it almost a club-length from where it was at rest. She plays her next shot onto the putting green and sinks the putt. What is Rosaleen's score for the hole?
(The answer is below)

Answer 10:
Rosaleen scores 8 for the hole.
1 - Drive from tee.
2 - Stroke from walkway to fairway.
3 & 4 - Two penalty strokes for replacing her ball outside the distance permitted by the temporary Local Rule.
5 - Stroke from fairway to putting green.
6 & 7 - Two more penalty strokes for replacing her ball outside the distance permitted by the temporary Local Rule.
8 - Putt into hole.
Note: It is important to read the Local Rules before commencing play as they vary from course to course. Breach of a Local Rule incurs the general penalty of two strokes.
