Couple of Sundays ago playing with my wife, someone thought it was a good idea to drop down a couple of Kraft MARSHMALLOWS on each of the fairways of the back nine! Trust me when I say a marshmallow from 30 yards looks EXACTLY like a golf ball! Me: "Wow, I crushed that one!" Get out there and it's a friggin' marshmallow right down the middle. My ball? Oh, that's it...back about 30 yards in the ROUGH! Kinda funny looking back on it. But it took a couple of swings to determine they don't go very far when you hit them! Dave

Can't be good for the fairway when they melt on it due to the heat.  Don't really miss playing public / muni courses where things like this are more likely to happen.

Haha, this is quite funny. I think I would get a good laugh to first few times I mistook them, but it would definitely get annoying if he was dropping them all over the course.

There's always something that looks like a ball on the course. Everything from balls chewed up by mowers to trash are on the courses we play. Amazing how far away from the range you can find a range ball. From a hundred yards away it's tough to tell. Someone has too much time on their hands to punk people with marshmallows, funny as it is.

    • Why? I haven’t been to Walmart without a mask since ... April?   More importantly, I hope your friend recovers soon.
    • @Esox, the ball could never be “declared” lost. It could be “deemed” lost, but that was a “rules” thing - a player’s actions could result in this “deeming” but a player couldn’t say, for example, “I deem it lost.” Also, a ball can’t be “lost” in the Rules in a penalty area (or a water hazard), even if it’s a “lost” ball in English. This is the Rules of Golf forum, so the words we use are going to have the meanings and definitions and usages that apply in the Rules of Golf. @Red, you replied, but you just quoted my post and didn’t say anything new.
    • Trying to keep solid contact. Sequence just feels weird.  I've been working on hitting a lot of punch shots. Also trying to slow down on full swings but that seems to make things worse lol. I’m not sure why my shots are off the toe. 
    • I'm old. We considered the act of dropping a ball a declaration that the original was lost and the dropped ball was in play. If you didn't think it was lost, why drop another?  
    • You can’t “declare” a ball lost.
