Rule 28 tells us what is considered an unplayable ball, and who has the right to make that determination. Also, once a ball has been deemed unplayable what are your options for relief and what penalties will you incur. This video also covers the rules surrounding deeming a ball unplayable without knowing its location, such as in the case of a lost ball.
