Uff da! 
 Wendy, do you think that a "tacit" agreement such as the casual statement in the locker room such as, "Everyone in our group of 30 players on Tuesdays and Fridays seems to play ready golf," might be acceptable?   I believe that the USGA wouldn't approve of the "explicit" statement on the first tee by the guy handing out the scorecards saying, "Hey, everybody, you're all to play ready golf throughout today's round." ps I've read your position on this issue on another site...

He moved two loose impediments.
I remember once trying to "help" a player who contended that the Rules were useless ... too complicated, etc.   I gave him the Rule book from my bag and suggested that it would help if he tore out some pages, namely 11 through 17. He did so, and I took back the Rule book, saying that he should keep 11 through 17 and that would be all he needed to know.    We ended up as friends.
 In a sense, yes, you may declare your drive unplayable. However, the declaration is unnecessary, since a player may, at any time and anywhere on the golf course, replay a shot and take a one stroke penalty. Rule 27-1 gives you that authority.
