I don't like question #20 either. The player changed the relief area after establishing a reference point, then only dropped once before placing in the second reference point/relief area.

I have it on good authority that the MGA have realised the score for #25 should be 11

How do you get to 11?

1 - Tee shot
2,3 - Dropping away from water (wrong place)
4 - Ball hit into bush
5,6 - Wrong place in dropping out of bush
7 - Shot onto the green
8,9 - Two putts

I'm quickly moving away from this so I'm not going to give this that much more thought. I have problems with other rules questions, so that they may not know what they're doing on #25 doesn't surprise me at this point.

The original answer was  'Rule 14.7' but I am told they had missed 6C(9) bullet 2 in Committee Procedures.

I haven't even read the question

Was just told not to give a crap about the MGA’s yearly test. That they’re often garbage and don’t listen to the USGA.

I'm with you Erik, I don't bother with it. The beast administered by PGA/USGA is more than enough for me. :)

I can't get behind a so-called "test" that opines situations which might happen once in the history of the game, and more likely would never actually happen.  A test that is created for the express purpose of making you fail is not a real test, in my humble opinion.

That too. Pointless.

I see it as a test for Committee members. Joes like me on the course with a badge and a radio don't need those headaches. :)

I have an idea how to deal with these weird scenarios:  When a player screws up so badly that it requires that many convolutions to sort things out, he is disqualified, with orders to leave the course and don't return (or at least he is barred from entering any competitions) until he has made the effort to learn some of the basic procedures for playing golf.  Too many of those brain twisters begin with fairly stupid mistakes, and are then compounded by more stupidity - anyone with a basic understanding of the rules would never make the mistake that starts the chain of errors.

(understand that this is, at least partly, tongue in cheek 😁 )

    • Day 1: Took a few days off to refocus. Stack arrived today, but my left arm is too sore from Covid booster and flu shot to really make hard swings so I’ll wait until next week. This evening I  hit balls simply making athletic swings. Did about 20 balls with a 7-iron. 
    • Day 211.  The plan was to do a full Fit for Golf routine tonight, but I was a bit too sore for it, so it ended up as a FFG mobility routine. 
    • Day 74 (10/6/22): Tonight was a very short practice, but it was productive, relatively speaking. Just short 3-9 swings, rehearsing impact position first, and then concentrating on feeling that position during the actual swing. And while not golf specific, I have resumed some core, leg, and back strength exercises I was doing regularly about 3 years ago but stopped when the pandemic hit.
