Let’s pick up where we left off last week. Here’s the Part 2 of the golf rules you should remember if you plan to play in a tournament.
Move Growing Things To Improve Your Position Or Lie
It looks like you have a shot after seeing that your ball came to rest right under the tree. However, there’s that pesky limb that’s hindering your backswing.

This rule prevents you from bending or moving fixed or growing things within your envisioned swing.
