Found your ball in a no-swing zone? The former European Tour chief referee is on hand to help with this common problem

In this Rules of Golf Explained series in association with TaylorMade, I’m 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, I’ve found my golf ball in an unplayable lie and I’d like to know my options.
