Comments on TeeGolf Rules
Rule 3: Striking the Ball
Rule 3.1 Stroke
Most recreational golfers don't count swings where the club doesn't contact the golf ball. However, regular golf rules require counting the unsuccessful swing as a stroke.
Many recreational golfers take swings where they don't hit the ball. Aside from being embarrassed, most recreational golfers don't feel that a missed swing should be counted. So, TeeGolf doesn't count it.
Rule 3.2 Contact with Ball
Aside from not counting a swing that doesn't contact the golf ball, you don't need to count as a stroke touching the ball as you're getting ready to take a swing. This is required in USGA and R&A rules. Not so in TeeGolf.
