My ball was embedded in a hillside above a cart path. As I climbed the hill, I disturbed the dirt. The ball came loose and rolled down to the fairway. What's the call?
Although it was accidental, your climbing the hill caused the ball to move and under Rule 18-2a, the ball must be replaced and you are penalized one stroke.
Happy golfing and remember the Rules Matter.
