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?
