I'm new to this forum and fairly new to golf (I played my first 9 holes today).
I played the ball off the tee with my driver and it dug in on the fairway.
How is the rule for this?
I tried to use the search function, but I didn't find anything. I know the basic "play the ball as it lies" rule, but I was worried about the fairway, so I dug it out and placed it on the ground.
