- A player's tee shot is in a difficult lie through the green. He deems the ball unplayable and drops it within two club-lengths of where it lay but it comes to rest in the same position from which he took relief. Which one of the following is correct?
- A competitor took relief from a lateral water hazard, dropped a ball in a wrong place (three club-lengths from where the original ball last crossed the hazard margin) and played it; his total penalty is three strokes.
- Even when it is obvious that a dropped ball will roll into a hazard or out of bounds, the player may not place the ball instead of dropping it.
- The Committee may not enlist the help of the players in removing casual water from the putting green if they have not finished the hole.
- Before completing an 18-hole competition, two competitors play two additional holes that were not included in the stipulated round; there is no penalty.
