The former European Tour chief referee is once again on the spot to explain

In this Rules of Golf Explained series in association with TaylorMade, NCG’s Steve Carroll is joined by former European Tour chief referee John Paramor to discuss various situations in which you might find yourself on the golf course and how you deal with them within the boundaries of the game’s laws.

In this episode, Steve has hit his golf ball into what he is pretty sure is an animal hole. So is he entitled to relief? John is on hand to explain as well as reminisce about a famous incident involving Seve Ballesteros.
