Damage Caused by Insects. RoG, Definitions, Abnormal Ground Conditions and Ground Under Repair, Rule 25-a; Decision 33-8/21. Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2015-10-30.
IN DEPTH From Decision 33-8/21: "Some types of insects, such as mole crickets, can create damage on a golf-course that results in unreasonable playing conditions. The Committee may declare such damage as ground under repair. In some instances a Committee would be justified in stating that interference by this condition with a players stance is deemed not to be, of itself, interference under this Local Rule - see Note under Rule 25-1a."

Suggested wording. The Committee may deem that interference by the insects with the players stance is not to be, of itself, interference under this Rule. The title and the penalty may be removed when this Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline.
