True, I tend to ignore them after a few holes. I’ll say “good shot, nice putt” when warranted but just try to stay focused and play ready golf which helps especially when they are in the woods looking for their ball. Will hit 1st, then go help.
Prior to 2019 Many clubs had the LR declaring them to be movable obstructions and if the ball moved you simply replaced it. Since 2019 they are now loose impediments but if the balls moves when you remove one, that is now a one shot penalty (the ball still has to be replaced).
Was this really thought through?
