If light­ning is in the area and you feel in dan­ger of get­ting struck, don’t wait for a warn­ing horn to sound, or for a course mar­shall to come and chase you off. Rule 6-8a says if you feel in dan­ger from light­ning, you can dis­con­tinue play and take shel­ter on the spot – even if it’s dur­ing a tour­na­ment (in that case, no­tify the tour­na­ment com­mit­tee as soon as prac­ti­ca­ble, oth­er­wise you risk be­ing dis­qual­i­fied). Be sure to mark your ball’s po­si­tion if you need to lift it. Fail­ure to do so comes with a one-stroke penalty when play re­sumes.
