CMGC Rules Committee: Determining “Nearest Point of Relief”

December 6th, 2016 posted by John Rains

The CMGC Rules Committee recently provided the definition of nearest point of relief to be used when taking relief from interference. The interference was from an immovable obstruction or from an unusual ground condition.

In a follow-up to the Rules definition is how to determine the nearest point of relief.

Determining “Nearest Point of Relief”

Rule 24-2b/1

Question: The Note to the Definition of “Nearest Point of Relief” provides that the player should determine this point by using “the club with which he would have made his next stroke if the condition were not there to simulate the address position, direction of play and swing for such stroke.

“May the player use any club, address position, direction of play or swing in determining the nearest point of relief?

Answer: No. In determining the nearest point of relief accurately it is recommended that the player use the club, address position, direction of play and swing (right or left-handed) that he would have used had the obstruction or condition not been there.

For example, the player has interference from an immovable obstruction and, were it not for the obstruction, he would have used a right-handed stroke with a 4-iron to play the ball from its original position towards the green. To determine the nearest point of relief accurately, he should use a right-handed stroke with a 4-iron and the direction of play should be towards the green.
