USGA logoGiven that you have only three minutes to find a missing ball in 2019, you might be in a bit more hurry to locate it.

That speedier search effort might leads to an accidental kick or a touch of the ball by the player’s hand.

No worries! Starting in 2019, there is no penalty for accidentally moving your ball while searching for it.

Simply replace the ball in the exact spot from where it was moved, or in the best-guess spot if you’re not 100% sure.
