Water Hazard/Lateral Water Hazard with Placing Mat RoG, Definitions, Water Hazard and Rule 26; The Swedish Golf Federation, Rules Committee, Protocol 2/2012 § 4B. Local Rule/Temporary Local Rule. New 2015-12-01.
In exceptional cases the Committee can use placing-mats on which a player may take relief from a water hazard/lateral water hazard when it is almost impossible to take relief under Rule 26 and where dense bushes, sharp slopes or rugged, rocky ground makes it impossible to create a dropping zone - click to link. The Committee may then place a drivingrange-mat or a tee-mat on a suitable frame on level ground and allow a player who takes relief, as an additional option, to place a ball on the mat in accordence with the procedure adopted in Rule 20-3. A ball lifted under this Local Rule may be cleaned.
Note: This Local Rule should be used only in exceptional cases.

Suggested wording. The headline and the penalty may be removed when the Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline.
Water Hazard/Lateral water hazard with Placing Mat
If a ball is in the water hazard/lateral water hazard at ... on hole ... or if it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is in this water hazard/lateral water hazard the player may: (i) proceed under Rule 26 (ii) or as an additional option, with one stroke penalty, place a ball on the placing mat 
A player may place his ball only once, and it is in play when it has been placed (Rule 20-4). If the ball fails to come to rest on the spot where it is placed, Rule 20-3d applies. If the ball when placed comes to rest on the spot on which it is placed and it subsequently moves, there is no penalty and the ball must be played as it lies, unless the provisions of any other Rule apply. Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
