So, what's new?

In 2019, if a player's ball at rest might have moved, new Rule 9.2 will introduce the "known or virtually certain" standard. This means that something is at least 95% likely and it will apply to all questions of fact when deciding:

If a player's ball at rest might have moved but this is not "known or virtually certain", it is treated as not having moved and must be played as it lies.
