25-2. Embedded Ball
A ball embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground in any closely mown areathrough the green may be lifted, cleaned and dropped, without penalty, as near as possible to the spot where it lay but not nearer the hole. The ball when dropped must first strike a part of the coursethrough the green. “Closely mown area” means any area of the course, including paths through the rough, cut to fairway height or less.
Simple suggestion for you @MEfree - post about golf, not about golf rules. You've burned too many bridges and the patience of too many on that.
I know the rule says, "Closely Mown Area". What if the ball is technically located in the rough, but the rough is sparce and the ball is clearly embedded in its own pitch mark in the side of a bank? The course we played today, the rough was less than a ball width in height. My ball bounced on the cart path really high, then hit a soft area in bank. Due to the rain, the ball was embedded in it's own pitch mark, clearly visible. Just curious if this is considered an embedded ball, and how much weight the line "Closely Mown Area" means?
