What happens if your golf ball becomes lodged in a tree and you can't get it down? What are your
options if a ball lands behind a boulder or you want to try to play your ball out of a water hazard?
What if you knock the ball off the tee while making a practise swing? For every situation in golf,
there's a rule, and for every rule there's a bizarre case of occurrence or misunderstanding.
Bizarre Rules of Golf examines more than 60 rules and situations-and their ramifications for golfers
both famous and obscure. From Tiger Woods putting for birdie and ending up in the water to Brad

water, the game's many rulings and interpretations of the rules book are probed and described in

strokes for losing his caddy. That's right-his caddy! (who also happens to be his wife) It's all here in Bizarre Rules
