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.

Team DJGT - 2015 Training Program
Building on the momentum established with our inaugural outdoor program in 2014, we are pleased to provide the 2015 version of our Durham Junior Golf Tour development and training program. The Team DJGT is a concept which unites committed athletes in a team environment to train skills and develop expertise in golf. With a wide range of topics, innovative practices, and a collaborative environment, the Team DJGT is a coaching and training program that helps young athletes train their skills in highly effective environments.
TOURNAMENT OBSERVATION / TEAM PRACTICES
A central component of the Durham Team program is that coaches will observe the players as they compete in events. We will have a coaching team at most events throughout the season, and this will give us the opportunity to observe skills in the actual playing of the game. We will also provide structured debrief sessions after rounds and on many of the event days we have scheduled team practices after the round.
This is really the core component of the 2015 program which we feel will take our training team to the next level. By observing our players as they compete, we will enhance the work we do in team practices as well in one-on-one sessions. This is a unique feature in a coaching program which just makes so much sense, but is rarely done. We are proud to offer participating athletes this level of coaching support and we are confident that it will yield tremendous benefits, for coach and athlete alike. Complete details
