Administrative Adjustment of Scores
In order to allow for occasional imprecise recollections of strokes taken on a hole and to obviate the need for tedious recapitulations of play, any player who knows they hit more than six shots on a hole but cannot say with certainty whether they hit a total of seven, eight, nine, or ten shall return a score of 7 on that hole, and any player who loses track of their score or stops counting their strokes after hitting at least seven shots during play of a hole shall score an 11 on that hole, even if at the point they computation was discontinued they had not yet reached the green.
Audible Interference with Swing
A player may replay his shot without assessing a stroke if at any time during his backswing or downswing, and prior to the moment when he strikes his ball, he shall hear a distracting sound or noise, including, but not limited to (a) a horn, siren, bell, gong, or chime, (b) a backfire, tire squeal, or engine whine, (c) a cheer, shout, groan, or whoop; (d) a bang, clap, crack, crash, slam, or snap; (e) a blast, rumble, or roar; (J) a thud, click, clunk, rattle, or clatter; (g) a bark, bellow, whinny, bleat, or howl; (h) a squawk, quack, cackle, cluck, chirp, honk, mew, or coo; (i) a cough, hiccup, sniffle, snort, or sneeze; or (j) a giggle, chuckle, chortle, snicker, or guffaw.
