Exceptions to the rules of golf

Expendable Ball

On the teeing ground of any hole with a clearly defined dogleg layout, a player who wishes to attempt to hit a shot that takes a "shortcut" across unplayable ground and into the fairway may select and put into play a lower-priced or less desirable ball and declare that ball to be "expendable." If his drive then safely clears the hazards or obstacles occupying the intervening area of the bend in the hole, he may lift and replace it with a better ball and continue play. If, however, his shot fails to carry through to playable terrain, he may proceed at once to play a second ball without assessing a stroke or incurring any penalty, but he may not spend any time whatsoever searching for his first ball, and if he makes another unsuccessful attempt to "go for it" with his second tee shot, he must play that ball subject to whatever rules would normally apply and shall, hi addition, be assessed the stroke and all penalties waived on his original tee shot.
