Multiple Drops for Entitled Relief

Recommended Posts

if you take entitled relief, lets say cart path, and take a legal drop that ends up on a sprinkler head, can you then take another drop or should you redrop the cart path drop?

You move on to the new situation and take relief, if you choose, from the sprinkler head.

You would have had to redrop  had the ball rolled back into a position where there was still  interference from the original obstruction.  Anything new, you move on.

But this may move you back to cart path. So better check carefully before picking up the ball.

But it's still legal to do that, no?  Could you not just keep going back and forth until one of the drops from the sprinkerhead bounded a smidge down the cart path, such that you're next cart path drop would be clear of the sprinklerhead?


BTW, if you're not in a serious competition, I would hope that most people, when faced with a situation like this would just combine the two steps into one, guesstimate where the final resting place should be, drop there and play on.

If relief from the next obstruction takes you back to the first one and you would end up eternally yo-yoing between the two, you may then take relief from both at the same time by finding the nearest point of relief that avoids interference from both.

See Decision 1-4/8 for the full procedure.
