This is one of those that depend on the situation. If you do have a cart path right next to the hazard and your two club lengths drop comes into there, you are entitled to free relief from the path (ball or stance). In theory you should mark the spot, then take relief from that spot as GUR relief, but many people choose to do it all at once
@BeauJoe - welcome to TST. Don't worry about older clubs. Quite a few of us here have them. The oldest clubs at home are a Dunlop set from 1986, which I use when I don't want to travel with my clubs from my apartment in the city to our coffee estate
7th hole hcp 1 (450 yard par 4 playing level) hit my driver about 320 leaving myself 130 in. High draw over the trees and back to the fairway where it widens. Missed the small green just left and nearly chipped it in for birdie. Then proceeded to magnificently miss the comeback putt for par.
