Golf's More Obscure Rules

When Dustin Johnson grounded his club at Whistling Straits, he unknowingly took a two-stroke penalty and brought some of golf's unusual regulations into the spotlight.

  • If a player tees off from more than one club length behind the tee area, the player receives a one-stroke penalty and has to forfeit his car to the state
  • A three-shot penalty will be issued to anyone caught enjoying themselves
  • A ball at rest should not be disturbed, as it is sleeping
  • Players must finally give up search for ball after 72 hours
  • If a player is caught beating his wife or kids with his golf clubs, he takes a two-stroke penalty
  • Partners may share clubs, but not during the same swing
  • Your little sister gets to pick the red ball if you got to play with the red ball last time
  • Putter may be used like a pool cue to crack up other golfers only once per round; after that the joke gets old and the player should come up with something else
  • Players will be disqualified for using full-sized pencil on scorecard
