Sunday Ball

What does sunday ball mean?

A do-over golf shot

A Sunday ball is a golf shot taken after a poor first shot attempt. It allows the golfer to take another shot from the same place without incurring a stroke.

The Sunday ball is not a formal rule, rather it is a courtesy given to a golfer during casual play. It is the same as a mulligan, which is more commonly used and reload.
