The more I see it, the more stupid it looks. 

No different to bending over to pick up your ball or place it on a tee.

Except you are not picking up your ball or placing it on a tee.

Why would that make a difference? If bending over to drop a ball looks stupid, then bending over to pick up a ball or place it on a tee also looks stupid.

I caught a few minutes of the lpga contest yesterday. I saw a young lady take a knee high drop. No big deal as long as the rules people don't look for perfection. 

Luckily not I or others I have played with recently have had to take a drop.

Not entirely true. It's also to inform and educate. It's to suss out the details and get to the meat, rather than just saying "player X said this, but we have no idea how much they actually know about the subject matter nor do we care in this clickbait headline-driven age."

That may have been true 25-30 years ago, but it is no longer! At least for the "herd"! There are a few writers who are well respected enough that their editors will pretty much leave them alone. But, they are dwindling in number.

And Hell! If you want ridiculous go back to the old days where you had to turn your back to the drop zone and drop the ball behind your shoulder! I think the powers that be could have done better by making the rule that you drop it at arm's length.

Players get the same range (six inches or so? maybe eight?) as they did with "shoulder height."
