Ball Swung at and Missed

A player who assumes his stance, formally addresses the ball, and then fairly strikes at it, but in so doing fails completely to make contact with any part of the ball, is deemed to have performed a full-address rehearsal of his swing (practice swing) and therefore need not count a stroke provided that he strictly observes the following procedure:

1. He must immediately readdress the ball with the same club, and his next stroke shall be counted regardless of result

2. He must not exhibit any surprise or dismay or suggest by gesture or facial expression that he ever harboured an expectation or belief that his swing would cause his ball to undertake any forward movement whatsoever.

3. He must make no remark disparaging the course, the prevailing weather conditions, the state of his equipment, or the level of his own playing skill, other than a statement taking note of the fortuitous elimination through practice of a faulty swing or a declaration of an intention to strike at the ball with less force or in a more controlled and measured manner when making his actual, true, real, final, intended, and accountable stroke.
