  1. Hi guys having an issue with a few members and drop point of a water hazard. ( pretty standard stuff I know but bare with me). on a short par 4 there is a small pond right next to the green, the margin of the hazard is defined by a yellow paint line. Balls often run down on to the green and drop in the hazard crossing the yellow paint line just off the fringe. Simple einough you would think. The issue is that because the rules say you must drop behind the hazard people insist everyone drops left of the hazard so they must chip over the water. This does not fit with keeping the point it last crissedbthe margin ( the yellow paint line). In some cases if the pin is very much in the left side a straight line back from the margin means you could chip or even putt out to the right and let the slope bring it back to the hole. People are insistent this is wrong as you’re not going over water, my view is the only factor in the rule is you MUST drop on a straight line between the flag and the point it last crossed the yellow line. Any thoughts? I did a diagram but my drawing skills are poor so apologies. Is this correct and how do I deal with those that insist everyone else is wrong??
  2. When Jordan plunked twice in a row would he have been able to take a drop closers to the hole rather than hitting it again. Seems like that would have been a better play. Moderator note: You should try to add more detail. Links, etc. http://www.masters.com/en_US/watch/2016/r4_34046_12.html (I assume you meant here on 12th hole, round 4)
  3. When a drop zone is created, if a player's ball unintentionally ends up in the "drop zone", is he allowed relief in the same manner as GUR? Drop zones funnel a fair number of players into a limited area. It is not unusual to have quite a few unrepaired divot holes and generally chopped up turf concentrated within a small circle or area. Today a player in our group hit his shot and when we arrived, his ball was within a drop zone circle. Fortunately for him is was not in a divot hole. Still it got me thinking that if a drop zone is created near where other players may end up, it might be reasonable to consider the drop zone as GUR except when a player is actually availing themselves of the option to use the drop zone. I could find no mention of this in the Appendix where drop zones are discussed. Anyone know of a prior Decision or a Rule? Thoughts as to whether to do anything and if so , how?
  4. I was wanting some wedges for Christmas this year is I only have a pitching wedge. I think I should get a 56 in a 52 but my grandpa thinks I should get a 50 and 56. What combo should I get?
