Brandel Chamblee points out to David Duval and Frank Nobilo that Tiger Woods might have been able to take an easier drop after hitting it in the water on No. 17 at The Players on Friday.

 

It went off the back down the path. He could have dropped on the path. But he may not have seen that from the tee.

Funny you brought this up, I was surprised to see him at the drop area after his ball went in the water. I just thought he chose to go there for some reason.

On a different note it's kind of refreshing to see a pro pay for their ignorance of the rules. If I was playing for $12.5 million I would brush up a bit on my rules knowledge.

I thought it had already been established that this is all due to a lack of communication by the USGA about the new rules, not the responsibility of the players. ;-)  /sarcasm

He said he didn't know the rule 😲

This Rule isn’t really new except that it’s a relief area instead of a spot.

So the new Rules really aren’t at play for the ability to get relief on the walkway.

I don't know where the hole was positioned exactly but if he hadn't spotted the difference between a line and a corridor, the old rule may not have afforded relief.

I don’t think that’s accurate. If he had a legit “back on a line” drop in 2019 he would have had that same spot in 2018.

Pretty sure.

Yes. On looking again at the nighttime video, he could well have had a drop further back. I wonder of the removal of the word 'behind' affected the two players.

Edit: The commentator implied an interesting point. May be balls so rarely end in the water at that point and players have got it in their brain that they use the DZ, S&D or if they are short, play from a little nearer.

I think that's what happened. The default options are there and he never even considered the possibility of dropping somewhere else.

I think a lot of guys, if they park it in the water on a par 3, just automatically head for the drop zone!

    • 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.
