Relief may be taken as follows: The player must lift the ball and drop it, without penalty, within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief, where the nearest point of relief is not nearer the hole and avoids interference from the obstruction.
e. In addition, if such an obstruction on or within two club lengths of the putting green of the hole being played intervenes on the line of play between the ball and the hole, where the ball lies within 2 club lengths of the intervening obstruction:
Relief Rule 24-2b applies: The ball may be lifted, cleaned and dropped without penalty within1club length of the nearest point to where the ball lay which is: (a) is not nearer the hole, (b) avoids such interventions, (c) is not in a hazard nor on the putting green.

b. Seams of Cut Turf: If the ball lies in or touches the seam of a newly turfed area or the seam interferes with the area of intended swing (but not stance)
Relief without penalty must be taken under Rule 251-b (the same lift/drop as Rule 24-2b explained above)
Animal dung and hoof prints may be treated as GUR. Relief is restricted to lie and area of intended swing. Relief
does not apply to stance.
Relief may be taken in accordance with Rule 251-b.
Artificial turf structures in bunkers and bunker surrounds are integral parts of the course. No relief can be taken for area of intended swing.
A player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. However, if, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g., gradient, wind-speed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional functions are actually used.
For Your Information: The 150 & 100 yardage markers are measured to the centre of the green.
