Rules of Golf

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 the 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 a 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 Rule 27-1 before playing from the next tee -- Rule 15-3b.

Jumpstart Community Partner

Raising funds. Lifting spirits. Supporting dreams


The Durham Junior Golf Tour is thrilled to be recognized as a Community Partner with Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities. Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.

The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.

Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.

Community Partners, like the Durham Junior Golf Tour work with local Jumpstart Chapters to identify the kids whose families need Jumpstart’s funding assistance to get them off the sidelines and into the game. What kids do is up to them; we’re here to help them do it.
