I have to agree with playing the rules, in a tournament. If it's lift clean and place go for it, everyone else will be. Having said that, in your casual rounds why wouldn't you hit it where it lies? It's great practice. Your ball isn't always in an ideal lie like it is on the driving range so get used to playing shots that are from less than perfect lies. It'll help you adapt to the game .
