So we have both taken our drives, and both were pretty decent. There is about about 90 yards to the green which can only be reached by pitching over water. I take my shot and it ends up on the edge of the green. ken takes his shot and duffs it into the water. I walk to the green crossing the bridge to the right of the fairway, by which time I forget Ken has to drop a ball in front of the hazard for what will be his 4th shot. Once at the side of the green I here "FORE", and then hear a clatter. This is where the ball landed. Yes, right in my bag, which was sat in my trolley, which I was pulling. LOL

What I really want to know is what the heck have you been doing to that poor driver?!  :-P

I actually take the greatest care of all my clubs. Because it is used at nearly every hole I take the head cover off. On the day in question it had quite a lot of mud on it, and let's be fair, it's about 8 years old :-(

They told you that you can put the ball on a tee when you use the driver, right? ;-)

to heck with the driver discussion - let's talk about the condition of the grass on that course.

Ouch!

The side of the 9th green has been attacked by moles, not ideal, but that's life. I should also point out that's it's March and the course is still flooded.

    • I was always under the impression that once you declared a ball lost and dropped a ball, that was it. Once you declare a ball lost and drop another, the original is out of play.
    • This is going to hinge on some things. You “assumed” it went in the water, but did you have “KVC” - “Knowledge or virtual certainty”? How long did you search? After your search, did you have “knowledge or virtual certainty”? Most likely: You search, didn’t find your ball, and likely (in your opinion) thought you had that KVC. You dropped at the best estimate for where your ball crossed. You played the shot, as that was the ball in play. You found your original ball, but since you’d (likely) done the above, it was just another random ball, basically. It does tell you that maybe next time look “better” as you’d have saved yourself a shot, but it’s just a ball you pick up and ignore, basically, as the ball you substituted and played was fine. That’s all “most likely.” If you dropped a ball WITHOUT the KVC, that is a different can of worms. P.S. Here’s another topic about this:  
    • I’m going to try hitting balls while restricting hip turn in the backswing tomorrow. It looks like I am rotating them way too far at the top of my backswing. I think it will help my sequence coming back down. 
    • I chose the last answer because… I don’t really understand the “other sport” stuff. I love hockey, football, soccer… F1. My wife couldn’t care less about any of those. But I also don’t really care if she plays a lot of golf. It’s fine by me that she doesn’t, really.
    • What I’m asking is… make the biggest swing you can make with good contact, and keep trying to make it just a little bit longer and longer. If it’s a 1/4 swing for now, or 3/8, start there, and then push it.
