The rule was recently changed so that the "line" is now OB, which makes little sense since a line, by definition, has no thickness.
If you can see a line, it has thickness and can be either touched or not. String, rope, paint, lime, curbs, or pavement that mark OB are distinguishable lines. All tournies should have these lines everywhere you want to designate OB. In ball golf, white stakes usually spaced apart about 15 yards or so designate the OB boundry, then it is up to the group to eyeball if you are past the "line" or not.
