Drop zones are normally established by local Rule as an additional option to those listed above.  Without such a local Rule, proceed under one of the applicable options listed.
But never for Rule 27-1 (ball lost or out of bounds, stroke and distance) unless the last stroke was made from the drop zone.
An oddity in taking relief from a wrong putting green - relief does not include relief for the stance, only for the ball.  In other words, you can stand on the wrong putting green to play your next stroke after taking relief.
As stated, its based on my analogy to the response/procedure in Decision 16-1/6.a
A couple of points from the Rules:1.  On the putting green, a player may only repair old hole plugs and ball marks.2.  A player is not authorized to declare any area to be ground under repair - that is reserved for the Committee/Committee representative. In such a case, the player should request a Committee member to intervene.  If no Committee member is available, the player may repair the damage (analogy to Decision 16-1a/6).  However, he is only permitted to repair the...
Imo, it's meant to perpetuate the incorrect presumption that the girls cannot play without the assistance of the coach or caddie (see the LPGA where the caddies feel the need to line up the players prior to their stroke).I understand that at one point, the NCAA petitioned the USGA/R&A to change the Rules to permit two coaches to be able to give advice.  Apparently, the ruling bodies did not accept this suggestion.  Coaches need to prepare their players for the round and...
 Management lesson from the Cuban Missile Crisis - President Kennedy responded to only those demands from Khrushchev that Kennedy chose to acknowledge, ignoring the rest.  This principle is now used very frequently, and successfully, during discussions/negotiations.
Play the course as it is marked - right or wrong, or risk DQ.  Discuss with the Committee after the round.
I don't think such a blanket statement is correct.  Depending on the location of the flagstick (hole) and where the ball last crossed the margin of the lateral water hazard, there may well be an opposite margin and equidistant point that can be used.
Let's not forget about 26-1c(ii) for a LWH, a point on an opposite margin equidistant from the hole to where the ball last crossed the margin of the LWH.   And drvfrshow, let's forget about where the ball first crossed the margin of the WH or LWH, that point is irrelevant; the only relevant point is where the ball last crossed the margin of the WH/LWH.
