The rules of golf and the rules of amateur status are standardised procedures that enable the game to be played in a manner that is fair to all players that are participating. The general principle in which the rules of golf were established is; Play the ball as it lies, play the course as you find it, and if you cannot do either, do what is fair. This statement provides the basis in which all the relevant rules of golf are generated.
