Inadvertent Ball

If at any time during the play of a hole a player finds that he has accidentally and inadvertently hit a ball that does not belong to him, he shall proceed as follows:

1. If he is dissatisfied with his lie, or with the shot he hit just prior to his discovery that he played the wrong ball, or with any other stroke made thereafter, he may at that point immediately reveal the unwitting substitution with a suitable statement of regret for the mistake and delight at the timeliness of its detection and its coincidental mitigation of an unfavourable playing situation, and then, without penalty, play a ball of his own from a preferred lie on adjacent ground.

2. If he is satisfied with his lie and the shot he hit and his subsequent strokes on that hole, he shall continue, without penalty, to play the misappropriated ball as if it were his own, and he shall hole out with that ball, deferring until the teeing ground of the next hole the revelation of the unintentional misplay, which he shall then announce with an appropriate demonstration of distress over his error and relief that, due to the delay in its discovery, play on the hole was completed and thus the score he achieved may stand.
