Water Hazard; Ball Played Provisionally Under Rule 26. RoG Appendix I Part B 1. Local Rule. Revised 2015-01-13.
IN DEPTH: From RoG Appendix I Part B 1:"If a water hazard (including a lateral water hazard) is of such size and shape and/or located in such a position that: (i) it would be impracticable to determine whether the ball is in the hazard or to do so would unduly delay play, and (ii) if the original ball is not found, it is known or virtually certain that it it is in the water hazard, the Committee may introduce a Local Rule permitting play of a ball provisionally under Rule 26-1. The ball is played provisionally under any of the applicable options under Rule 26-1 or any applicable Local Rule. In such a case, if a ball is played provisionally and the original ball is in a water hazard, the player may play the original ball as it lies or continue with the ball played provisionally, but he may not proceed under Rule 26-1 with regard to the original ball." 

Suggested wording. This Rule shall stand under the headline "Water Hazard Rule 26", but shall keep its own title.
