You've hit your tee shot on a par three and pulled your shot. The ball has landed smack in the middle of an adjacent green. You can't or at least shouldn't pitch your second shot from the adjacent green so, you pick your baal up and walk it to an area that you can hit from. What is the rule? Do you pick it up? Do you pitch from the green? How many strokes penalty for moving the ball? Where do you legally drop from?

I'm 90 pct sure it's a local rule that you get a free drop from all greens other than your own, no closer to the hole. I'm sure someone else can say for certain, but it's definitely not a penalty stroke, since you're taking a drop out of respect for the course, as opposed to being in a hazard, etc.

The other question is, whether or not you MUST take a drop. I know there are plenty of examples of guys chipping/pitching off their own green when it's a funky shape and they can't putt. But that's far different than hitting a 9 iron.
