Knocking ball off tee…whats the rules?

Come on.. we’ve all done it! You just want to run and jump in the big black hole behind you. Its made worse by the heckles from your playing companions… “that’s one”!

However embarrassing it is not actually against the rules and no additional shot is added or penalty shot incurred.

A ball blown off by the wind or accidentally knocked off during set up can be replaced without penalty. The only time a penalty shot is recorded is if  you have started your downswing and cannot stop, hitting the ball or missing it completely.
