C. INTERFERENCE WITH PLAY
33. INTERFERENCE WITH THE POSITION
OF A BALL
BY THE STRIKER If the striker interferes with a ball during the striking
period, Law 28 applies if the interference is discovered
before the limit of claims of the error. In all other cases, Law 33(d)
applies and the striker continues his turn subject to the law applicable to
any other error or interference that may have occurred.
BY THE ADVERSARY OR AN OUTSIDE AGENCY If the outcome of a stroke is materially
affected because the adversary or an outside agency has interfered with the
position or motion of a ball and the interference is discovered before the
next stroke, the stroke is replayed after replacing the balls in their lawful
positions before the stroke was played. In all other cases, Law 33(d)
- OTHER INTERFERENCE
In all other cases, including the effect of extreme weather conditions, if
a ball at rest moves or is moved between strokes or during a stroke that did
not affect its position, it is deemed to have suffered interference, there
is no penalty and Law 33(d) applies.
OF A BALL AFTER INTERFERENCE If the ball was a ball at rest, it is replaced.
If it was moving, it is placed where it would otherwise have come to rest.
After interference during a stroke, a ball cannot subsequently in that stroke
make a roquet, be roqueted, score a point for itself or cause another ball
to move or score a point.
