need a ruling.. friend of mine hits his tee shot. he then chunks his second shot. third shot he hits dead straight but into an environmental protected area. now this is where it gets tricky. instead of dropping at the point of entry he decides to drop in the fairway about halfway from where he hit the ball. he claims that he can drop as far back as he wants as long as its no closer to the hole. he didnt want to drop down where it entered because his next shot would have been over trees and all that good stuff. so my question is where is the proper place to play the ball.. point of entry, or the fairway, or back to where he hit from?
