That's what it sounds like to me.  That said, I guess it really doesn't matter what they guy did, since the course is not particularly interested in proper play.

I agree.  Why get the rule book out.... what's the point?

 

 I do think it was an interesting discussion on a drop, however.

My apologies.  I think I have this figured out now.
