Well, I'm going to have to go against the consensus here. Unless you know for virtual certainty that you ball crossed into the penalty area ask yourself this. Is there a possibility that your ball could be lost outside the penalty area? IF so then you would need to act accordingly. Back to the tee or if E 5 was in effect then out to the fairway and add 2 strokes.
