You and your buddy hit blind tee shots that seem to land in roughly the same area. Your buddy finds a ball and hits his sec­ond shot. You then search for your ball, but you find his in­stead. You re­alise he hit your ball. What hap­pens next? In match play, he loses the hole. In stroke play, your buddy gets a two-shot penalty and must play his ball. Be­cause you be­gan to search for your ball, you would have to find your buddy’s ball within five min­utes of the time you be­gan search­ing. Af­ter five min­utes, your ball would be con­sid­ered lost, and you would have to put an­other ball into play un­der penalty of stroke and dis­tance.
