Ball Falling Off Tee

Ball Falling Off Tee

While my opponent was teeing off his ball fell off the tee and he continued his swing and hit the ball while it was still moving. Is it a penalty?

Falling Teed Ball Struck in Motion

Great question!!

Rule 11-3 says: If a ball, when not in play, falls off a tee or is knocked off a tee by the player in addressing it, it may be re-teed, without penalty. However, if a stroke is made at the ball in these circumstances, whether the ball is moving or not, the stroke counts, but there is no penalty.

So, in your scenario - there is NO penalty, yet the swing does still count as a stroke and the ball must now be played for the second shot from the place where it came to rest. Had the ball fallen off its perch during the address, it could just have been re-teed — no swing, no penalty. However, per Rule 11-3, since your opponent made a stroke at the ball, that stroke counts — whether the ball was moving or not — but there's no penalty. If your opponent had been able to stop the clubhead mid-downswing, he could have simply re-teed, but since he completed a stroke, he's hitting his second shot from wherever that ball came to rest.

Hope that helps!
