If you swing and ball does not move is it a stroke?

Yes. From the Rules, available at "A "stroke'' is the forward movement of the club made with the intention of striking at and moving the ball, but if a player checks his downswing voluntarily before the clubhead reaches the ball he has not made a stroke" So if you intended to hit the ball, it's a stroke.Personally, I don't like that rule. I don't think it should count if the ball doesn't move. But I don't make 'em up, I just tell 'em.Answer by FutureLPGAgolferYes, it counts as a stroke if you swing and the ball doesn't move.
