Ok, if someone hits a ball that could possibly be lost, then chooses to hit a provisional , after not finding either ball and has to drop again.......what is the penalty? And after the drop what would they be hitting?

Assuming the first ball was a tee shot, and the second (was provisional) ball was also lost, he'd be hitting five:

  1. Initial tee shot.
  2. Stroke and distance.
  3. Provisional ball.
  4. Stroke and distance.
  5. New ball (for the two lost balls).

Beau Hossler did this recently. 5 off the tee. Ended up with a 7 on the first hole on the final round.

Once had to retee for 7, not much fun when it's hole 3 and you're playing medal.
