You can't assume that the ball was taken by something you couldn't see. There must be evidence to support it. Under the rules, the ball is lost and the player must continue under penalty of stroke and distance.
I think this is your answer upndown! You are 6'6" after all. One thing I've noticed about all the new moisture wicking fabrics is I can't keep my shirt tucked in to save my life! 2 or 3 swings and my shirt tail is out!
Wonderful insights, especially about low compression balls. I tried some of the super low compression balls last year and did not like them at all! Felt like I was hitting a hackey sack, the balls didn't go anywhere, and didn't hold greens very well! I gave them away to my buddy's Brother who is just taking up the game.
This year I did try a sleeve of the new TM TP5. Very nice ball! But, a little pricey for me. Will be interested to see what Snell comes up with.
