“Whiffing It”

April 2012 – Rules IQ

 

If you intend to hit your ball off the tee and “whiff it”, does it count as a stroke if the ball does not move, or can you consider it a practice swing?

 

Sorry, it counts as a stroke if you intended to hit it.

 

For more information on this and other rules, be sure to attend the Rules Seminar (typically held each spring).
